Selling the family home can be a heartbreaker, but imagine the freedom if you move into a rental. "The financial stress we lived under is gone, and I can't oversate the power of that," says a woman whose family sold their house in Vancouver a year ago and now rents. "There's no loger any going to bed at nigh, looking a your husband and saying, 'Oh my god, the kids need braces. We need to cough up another $5000.' There' a massive sense of freedom.
That's just one of the reasons her family decided to sell a year ago, pay off the mortgage, invest the profit and wait.
They want to buy another home but are in no hurry to do it.
