Soooo- going from one Very-High-cost of living area, to a higher one...

Was the whole "buying the house*" thing worth it?

peace & sheds

* and now having to sell it

Well, I haven't decided whether to sell it or rent it; it's on the Cape so would rent fairly easily and I tend to collect houses. I may have to move some funds around to keep it but it's doable and there are property managers galore here.

Yes, it was worth it though in terms of emotional stability for The Wombat. He needed to know that we weren't moving again and that worked well for us. He's older now and able to deal with it better; he's very excited about the move. :-)
