I second that motion.

As Greg stated, you'd lose flexibility, and why take on the headaches of ownership? As a long-time condo owner I can tell you that there are headaches, even in condos.

You two sound like you're OK right where you are.


Me too.

Even though I have a retirement portfolio well into 7 figures and I could pay cash for a large home, I still rent an inexpensive apartment.

You couldn't pay me enough money to put up with the hassles of owning a single-family home or a condo.
