Buying and selling a house

Buying and selling a house is stressful.

I have to put my house on the market, and find a bigger one to buy with in a budget. And hopefully not be homeless in that time.

Agreed 10000000% buying and selling a house, especially with wife/kids/dog all living in it while trying to sell is a stressful mess

I got somewhat lucky when I sold my last house, I had a neighbor that was renting and really wanted to move into the neighborhood permanently. We worked out a deal without realtors, used a decent local settlement attorney, and all went well. She was able to rent month to month after her 1 year rental was up, so that made my move out easy, she just rented for one extra month while I closed on the house I am in now :)

I know my next move probably won't go anywhere near that smooth and easy

Moving all your stuff into storage and renting an apartment doesn't sound like a temp option either if you need more space :(


The easier but more expensive option is to plan to carry two houses for 90-120 days...
At least this is what I am shooting for when I move again in about 2 years.

I’m not shooting for that I’m hoping some stuff goes smooth like your first move. I am waiting to find out the pre approval and then I will list this house.

I hope it goes smoothly for you.

Make sure you hire a great home inspector for the new house.

My home inspector missed a failing roof on the main house (needed the complete roof replaced), a leaky roof on the sun room, a failed gas water heater, a failed irrigation system (dumped 80,000 gallons of water into the yard before I noticed) and some other smaller things. Needless to say my first 6 months in the new house was way more expensive than I had ever imagined it would be :( I am over all those hurdles now (been in this house 2 years) and have been working more on improvements and less of repairs ;)

The new house is a brand new build with a warranty. I doubt I’ll pay for an inspection. But we will see when we get that far.
