Abusive house

Great article. I am in the same situation with my house. The author did not go into the actual cost-effectiveness of her new purchase. I just want to add that the numbers can vary depending on the list price of old and new home, remaining mortgage, closing costs and terms of a new mortgage. It would actually cost me an extra $100,000 to purchase rather than stay. I'm putting that money into the house, retirement and debts (mortgage and student loan). I guess it depends on what is most important to you. Thanks.

In my situation, it was financially in my best interest to sell. I save at least $1000 each month from the decision to downsize.
