Re: buying a new primary residence... sell or re

I should also mention that property values are ticking upward. There is not a huge rental market here, that I am aware of (only show about 5 houses in town on Zillow)

Re: buying a new primary residence... sell or re

thanks for the reply

the home is in the same nyc commuter town. Likely I would need to outsource maintenance in the near term (young child/long commute)

Re: coffee lovers

I have a grind n brew machine at home, so I always go for whole bean. I feel like that makes a difference.
