It is expensive in more ways than one. How can you put a value on the memories you have in your house? When my wife and I bought our house about 11 years ago, it was with the intention of never moving. Maybe we are old fashioned, but, even with all of it's flaws, I can't imagine leaving our memories behind. There is something wrong with our society when even homes become disposable. In some situations there is not choice, but when it is a choice, how can you choose to move. We need to give our kids roots, a place where they can always return and feel safe no matter how the world treats them.
