I have heard of buyers remorse - but this sounds like "sellers remorse"

Thanks for your comment Nate. Yes, having a bit of seller's remorse (especially seeing the amount of rent money that i will be throwing down the drain in the coming year.) However, it is nice not worrying about a leak when it rains or about whether my grass is dying. not my problem.

Depends: Did you need to leave the area quickly? Leaving a home vacant, gobbles up that "extra," money quickly. Ditto for not being able to start the new job, because of the sale of house,(loss of income.) Seems as if you did what was best for you and your family at the time.

Even though you might have made a few more dollars, you might have had to deal with stress of dealing with counter offers or no offers at all. Selling a home can be one of the most stressful events in your life and you didn't need that stress at that time when you had a beautiful new baby to care for. Money can't buy sanity.

Patricia-Yes, we left the area relatively quickly, so that is partially reason for the sale. As for ebeling...you are right, didn't want to deal with the counter offers and was fearful of the appraisal. Thanks for the baby shout out by the way.
