This question has been in our minds for months and months. It’s always a moving target. We were ready well over a year ago, even got a moving quote back in March of ’05. Then we decided we’d have one more baby before going (making us four). That happened, and now we are aiming for March/April of ’07. We would have been better off financially going back in ’05, when the housing market was at its peak. But we weren’t ready and couldn’t just pick up and sell then. So somewhat for the poorer, we intend to sell at the beginning of ’07. This is six months beyond our initial plan of being in the US no more than five years.
We have got two moving quotes in hand, and are working on the inventory of the house we need in order to ship our goods into Ecuador duty free. We haven’t been to Ecuador since January of last year, as my wife can’t have spent more than 30 days in Ecuador in the last 365 to be allowed to ship in our household goods duty free.
