We had our home inspection yesterday and we met the buyers. They are a really nice couple with two kids - they said they LOVE our house. We're still waiting to hear on the results of the inspection if there's anything that they're requesting us to fix.
As many of you know we're losing money on the house. In fact, it's wiping out our savings completely. BUT, rather than be sad about this, I'm happy that I'm not going to be tied to it anymore. It's the biggest thing keeping us in Texas. So while there are lots of happy memories in this house, I'm happy to be moving on.
I think we'll be heading to a 2 bedroom apartment or duplex and will be saving like crazy. We've been talking about it a lot and we both prefer not to move back home broke. So we'll stay in Texas and build up our reserves to pay for the move and a couple months worth of rent on Maui so it will be an easier transition. And the kids will get to finish out the school year in Austin. So target date for our Maui move is May 31, 2012. It's longer than what I was hoping for but I think it's the smartest thing for our family to make sure we don't move before we're financially ready.
