This is my dilemma. I can sell my free & clear Austin house for a bundle, but where would I move to? I wouldn't mind farther west in small town in the Hill Country but where? Everywhere, is seems has gotten really expensive. Other than that, it would be out of state, probably a mountain state. At my age it seems just easier to tough it out here in Austin and keep riding the RE appreciation higher and higher as my living expenses are minimal with the exception of Austin RE taxes. I long as I don't lose my SALT deductions in the tax redo I am better off financially by sitting tight even though I like it here less and less every day.
