Selling the Vacation Home, TurboTax Giveaway, and More

Maybe you were right. I’m one of those people, that no matter what someone tells me, I just have to try it myself before I can believe it. I’m just plain stubborn I guess.

When I asked Should We Buy a Vacation Home? [1] there were many great comments and it made us think. But ultimately, you know what we did, we bought it [2].

And now a year later, I think I want to sell it. I’m supposed to have this burning desire to go there for the summer, but instead, I have no desire. And I hate spending money on it!

I could go on and on about my list of pros and cons, but it really boils down to every reason that readers warned me about [3] (it’ll get old, the kids will be busy with activities, you’ll want to go elsewhere, etc.)

Yikes, what a predicament. Maybe I should have listened a little closer to readers like WR who said: “Ix-Nay on the vacation home. Own your investments but rent your fun.

So now that we own it, we’re trying to decide on the best strategy moving forward. Try to sell it immediately or hold onto it for awhile then try to sell. We’re leaning towards just listing it soon to see what happens….
