The down side is the large mortgage. For not that much more, we figure it's worth looking for a larger house. And of course, we'd have to sell our current house. Our realtor claims there's plenty of activity in our neighborhood, but I'm just not that assured. We've been fortunate enough to dodge the economic downturn. So jumping into a big house seems kind of crazy on one hand. But on the other hand, we could get a great house at the beach for a reasonable price. Living just a short bike ride from the Atlantic Ocean has it's appeal. Oh yeah, and the hurricanes.
So we're curious to hear what you think. Please vote in the anonymous poll along the side of the page.
