My stepdaughter bought a home (1800) sq. ft. in Rosmoore, Ca. for $335,000 and seven years later sold it for $465,000 and bought a home in Woodbridge, Va. (5,000) sq. ft. for 395,000. So you see the cost of living is cheaper in other states then in California and if you have owned it for awhile you will more then likely walk away with a bundle in your pocket. Maybe enough to pay cash somewhere else. Just something for you to think about. We bought our home in Albuquerque, NM five years ago for $165,00 and we are putting it on the market in a month for $285,000. We are within reason according to the comps in my neighborhood. Do some checking on the above mentioned things. It might be a happy surprise.
unfortunatly I do not own my house it is a rental. My parents own the house. If I could get them to sell all their rentals properties and move out of state they could buy probably 8-10 houses in a different state. But they won't. I really wished I would of bought a house years ago. We just figured we were moving out of state so why bother. We didn't mean to stay here as long as we have, but oh well. Time just gets away from you sometimes.
