If there is anything you need to paint, repair, spruce up, ... now's the time to do it. March is often a great time to put a family home on the market. Lots of people start looking in spring with the idea they will buy and be settled in by summer.
Thanks for the advice. Yes, this is the key. One of us needs to stay behind and do the sale. Too difficult to both be remote and manage the sale from afar. Even if we can get by on one income for the short term, that person will still need to go get a job/rent in the new area so the other person can remain free to prep the house for sale.
