This is something I've been thinking a lot about lately. We live in a mobile home manufactured in the 80s, with 'improvements' made by a not-so-handyman before we moved in. We don't make a lot of extra money so anything we've done to the house has been as an emergency kind of thing, and it needs a lot of work.
But we love this property. We moved in with the intent to buy (the landlord is willing to sell on a land contract, which would kind of be like rent-to-own), but it seems whenever we've had money for the down payment, something would go wrong with the car that would take all the funds.
Now, my father's health is failing, my mother wants to see more of me, and there just doesn't seem to be any kind of work in this area for any of us. :\ Moving closer to my parents - as well as the rest of our family! - would mean more employment opportunities, as well as being able to see them with less time & money spent on traveling.
But to trade our secluded 3-acre wood for an apartment in the city leaves us feeling anxious and uncomfortable. Even if it's a temporary thing.
Irregardless of whether or not we decide to move, I wish for my home to be filled with love and laughter, joy and fun, peace and stability, and I wish for my home to feel comfortable and safe for all members of my family.
