    Some part of California is always due.

    Glad we sold before we needed insurance we didn't have.

    I hope it's saner where you are then. Rents were out of sight when we left.

    There was no way we could have covered our mortgage in retirement. And then we hit the lay-off age before we got to retirement. So relocation was pretty much hard-wired for us.

    They are high but I would like to cash out while the market is high and eliminate the insurance and property tax plus the quake anxiety

    Well. I won't pretend to offer advice on sorting all that out. But I sure do sympathize with what your are dealing with.

    Sounds like a power move.

    When you wrap that up, perhaps you can call Moe and give him some ideas about how and when to sell high?

    LOL.

    The only "power move" barnbird knows anything about is what happens after he has coffee and two bowls of bran flakes.

    Wiping the Vermont Turd is the only mildly pleasant interaction possible.

    We're far enough from the New Madrid that the quake itself wouldn't hurt us much. But where I live, it would likely activate our mine subsidence insurance.
