I'm convinced there is no good way to do 5-8. Especially if old city and new city are apart. Really hard to time it all out without either paying two mortgages or making compromises in your decisions (like taking less money or rushing into a house that isn't quite what you want). I have no idea how people pull this off. Seems like it would be better to sell your house, put your crap in storage, and rent a temporary furnished apartment while you look.

Our current home has probably gained $100k.
In most cases, not an issue.

Well, sure, but she is your mom so she is supposed to put up with it.

Fair point, but Careers tends to house the good thorough advice, rather than flippant red-font quips.

You'll need to attend preschool before you have a chance of finding a job.
