This is what we are focusing on as well. Counting the months down, and we "know" that our house and its 20+ acres, which is adjacent to a new development (complete with streets deadending our way) is worth a lot more than what we will spend on a future abode. Nonetheless, not included in retirement calculations, since we don't know when/if we will receive the proverbial offer that we can't refuse.
