A few years ago, after a health crisis for my spouse, we decided to sell our midwest house and move to the desert Southwest to be in a dry and presumably healthier climate. We found a community we thought we liked and a realtor who could show us nice houses. We spent more money on a house than we had planned, but decided our happiness was worth it. We took the leap.
