Picking up where I left off...

Picking up where I left off...

Well, life moves on.

After some down time tending to unexpected health issues, we've placed the house on the market and will pick up roughly where we left off. The housing situation is chaotic here in Tampa Bay, as it is in many areas. After a fairly good response things have quieted down but we can only wait.

After the house sells, we'll decide where to re-settle. There a lot of "if this then that" issues involved comparing San Francisco, central Missouri, and staying in TB.

So I'm just jumping in to say Hi to all my friends, and look forward to posting a bit more than I have been up to until recently.

Welcome back, Rich. I look forward to reading your posts, perhaps about the house-selling experience in the rocky Florida real estate market these days, and where you decide to settle down.

Why don't you pick three locations a bit more diverse? Not much to differentiate those locations...

Hi Rich and welcome back to the forum. Hope the health issues have settled down and that things are taking a turn for the better. Best wishes for answers to your current concerns on house sale and relocation. Hope you are back for good.

Nice to hear from you again, Rich.

I don't know if Tampa area real estate is like Naples (where I just spent 3 weeks). In Naples, Sept, Oct, Nov are the 3 slowest months of the year for real estate sales. Then the snowbirds arrive, and sales take off.

Hoping you get your place sold soon.

Hey Rich
Good to see you back and hope all is well with you and yours.

I haven't been back to FL since 2010. I certainly hope you took care of my share of crab legs in my absence. Stimulate the marine based economy !

Yep - if we can handle what our personal housing allowance will get us. You know - a million here, a million there, pretty soon you're talking real money .

Hey Rich, nice to hear from you. No need to go to Texas, there are plenty of places here in the US. Thinking about moving close to any of your kids?
