I HAVE A PAID OFF HOUSE WORTH ABOUT 40k. I LIVE IN AN INNER CITY IN MICHIGAN. I HATE IT HERE BUT IT IS NEAR MY MOM. AS THE CRAP SEEMS TO BE GETTING THICKER EVERYWHERE I WAS THINKING I SHOULD SELL MY HOUSE AND USE THE FUNDS FOR AN RV AND SOME UNRESTRICTED LAND SOME WHERE SOUTH (KY or TN). MY CONCERN IS THAT I WOULD BE TRADING SOMETHING THAT ACCUMULATES IN VALUE FOR SOMETHING THAT DETERIORATES IN VALUE. I WOULD BE GAINING IN MENTAL HEALTH AND HAPPINESS and a sense of safety. I’m sick of the violence here. I am sick of my 9 year old sleeping with me cuz is too scared to sleep in own bed with all the gunshots etc. We don’t even go outside in the yard anymore. My mom says I would be sorry if I do this. She doesn’t understand and she has been wrong many times before. DOING BOTH IS NOT AN OPTION!!!
I also cannot rent the house out. OPINIONS???
Sorry about the all caps.
Employment opportunities is not an issue. I’m 50 and all my other kids are grown and living their own lives.
