The Westward Migration

Well, it would figure that no sooner did we buy a house and settle into it - we're moving. DH is being relocated to CA and we'll be moving in March, or perhaps May - depending on his schooling. As exciting as it is to return to CA, it's a bit overwhelming. It seems like we just finally got this house unpacked, and now we'll be packing it up again. Having been spoiled by owning our own home and having a huge yard and decent sized house, we're going to have to either a)find a super awesome deal on a house or b)downsize. At least this time we wont have to do any of the heavy lifting as that's all taken care of and paid for by the Army. So thank you tax payers for funding our move!

At least CA is beautiful and the learning opportunities plentiful. Homeownership comes with a lot of headaches. I so miss our small condo in the sky days. Just this morning we were talking about how to get out from under owning a home and all the resources it takes to support it.

Good luck. I'm sure you will keep us posted. :)

Sorry to hear you are having to move again, but hopefully it will turn into an adventure! At least military moves are made relatively easy. (We will be in the same boat next summer - Hubby's degree will be done and we will be posted again.)

Good luck with your home hunt!
My bro-in-law almost had to do the same a month ago, but they were able to stay in the same place for another year anyway. They are in the Sacramento area.

Thanks to your husband for the job he does. I hope the move goes well.

Sorry to here about the relocating. How hectic it gets. That is great not to have to do any heavy lifting. Good luck with finding a new home.

Congratulations! It's true that the housing prices are astronomical, but one thing in your favor (if you decide to buy) is that it's a buyer's market - sellers have had to come down quite a lot or risk their homes being on the market for many months (sometimes over a year).
