Paying rent AND a mortgage in two states is challenging, to say the least. Especially when there’s not a tenant helping pay that mortgage.
Back story: I’m trying to sell a condo in Colorado right now. It’s been stressful. I’ve owned it for almost 9 years now (9!). But for almost 7 of that, I’ve been in Texas. Housing bubble burst meant I couldn’t sell ’til now.
We got an offer late yesterday. It wasn’t ideal, so we countered. And even though things are looking good for acceptance, I’m still scared it won’t work.
I’m trying not to think of the benefits of selling – the main one being that I’ll just about be out of debt for the first time in years and years. Right now, the main thing I’m doing is keeping my fingers crossed.
