My whole family lived in Portland, Oregon.
It was just the place we all decided to set up camp.
The rules were that you married someone you went to highschool with, got a local job, and bought a house. Then you had kids and continued the cycle over again. Well one by one my family started moving down south. Both my brothers went out of state for college and met women there. So they moved and only visit rarely. My parents bought a beach house and basically live there full time. So I am the one family member left in Portland and I don’t like it. I didn’t marry a local guy and I hate my job. So why not move? I am in the process of packing up and going down south. I have already bought a house down there and have begun getting my material possessions there. I also have a job on the line and I am feeling very excited. The last step in selling my Portland house. I don’t need to do a fast for cash deal, but I think I am doing one anyway. The real estate agencies in Portland were a nightmare to work with. I didn’t want to stage my house and make repairs. I am sending all my furniture away, I don’t want to keep it around for strangers to look at while they walk through my home. I also didn’t want to spend money on repairs. I needed to save for the move. The cash home buyers have been so much nicer to work with. I really think this is how I am going to sell my house.
