Bag end looks 5/7
Shame to see you moving on, I really liked Bag End.
We do too. Biggest beef is just with the nature of the hood. Houses super close together, small yards, city is super restrictive on updates (garage is a no go here). Plus the new place includes a private community center with pool, gym, etc at the end of our new street.
Financially, Bag end won't be worth this much for another 10 years probably. So if we're going to sell in the next 10 years, NOW is the time to do it. We happened to get the new house with exactly what/where we want for a solid deal (asking price was very reasonable), so it made sense.
Will certainly miss aspects of Bag End, but if it sells at or above ask, I'll be very happy. Factoring down payment, "upgrades", and mortgage principle paid, at ask after all fees we'll make $15k. That goes away if you factor in mortgage interest and whatnot, but that's kind of grey because that would be paid anywhere.
