It seems like just yesterday that I was posting about arriving here in Atlanta after a long drive from our old home in California. Turns out that was more than 5 years (and a wedding and two kids) ago!
And now we’re on the move again. I’d like to say it was a calculated decision based on some heavy analysis of the business and the real estate markets, but in reality, it was pretty much just a spontaneous decision that will get us closer to where both my wife and I grew up. We’ll likely settle in Maryland at some point in the next couple months, but still haven’t found a new house, so we don’t know exactly where or when. We close on the sale of our personal residence tomorrow (Monday), and will be spending the next little while looking for a place to call home, visiting some friends/family around the country, and keeping an eye on our investments in several different cities.
I’m sure I’ll be getting back to Atlanta plenty, as we plan to continue investing here. And we’ll probably start investing in Maryland as well, once we settle in.
I’m not going to do a final analysis post on my personal residence (since it was never intended to be an investment), but I’m happy to say that we sold it for more than we bought it for, though after all commissions and closing costs, we’ll net less than what we paid. Not to mention the $10,000 or so we did in upgrades the past few months while preparing for the sale.
I’ll post more once we get settled…somewhere… 🙂
