sounds like you made the right decision.
You are no longer in a savings mode.
You are now in a slow spend down mode.

Another congratulations. I'm sure sale of the condo takes a lot of pressure off of you.

It's nice to know you have options, and only good decisions are ahead for you.

Keeping the condo for now allows you more flexibility in the future, and you've said you won't lose money by doing so. You'll be living close enough to manage it as a rental property yourself, and a single unit in a condo building really shouldn't take much of your time and attention as a landlord. You can still sell it in a couple of years when hopefully the economy will be more settled and you may have firmer plans for your forever home.
