A Question About Moving
I am 70 years old and in excellent health. I live alone in Arizona and own my home free and clear. I am contimplating the need and wish to relocate 2000 miles to Mississippi where my only remaining family (son) lives. I have been looking into the idea of purchasing a second home in Mississippi with the eventual intent of relocating permanently. Initially, for the next few years, I would probably be spitting my time between AZ and MS. There is a chance my son and his family would also live in the MS home. It would be my intent to live in both places until I eventually need to move into a retirement home in MS. On the other hand, I am also considering just pulling up stakes and moving to MS
My question relates specifically to the issue of relocating and the cost to do so, depending on just what it is I would move across country. It occurs to me, overall it may actually be cheaper to not even try to move much of the small/cheaper stuff (furnishings, tools, some furniture, stc); but rather to sell it in a garage sale and buy new stuff for the new house. You can get great deals on things at the Goodwill, pawn shops, etc.
Has anyone gone through this and can comment? Thanks.
