We decided to sell the family home once Mum moved into a nursing home. It was a hard decision, but it was pretty obvious that she wouldn't be coming back home. And we wanted her to be able to have the money to enjoy now rather than saving it for a rainy day that might not come. It was quite an emotional situation to sell the home we grew up in. Luckily, we made a great discovery of a really fantastic real estate agent who helped us through the process. Hopefully another young family will be able to enjoy our house just like we did.
