We are planning to sail in a year. We are wanting to sell the house at this time. We talked about an equity loan on the house but what happens when you sell the house in a year? We still have a mortgage on it.
We don't want to rent when outside of the country.
Sell first and put the money in a 30 day T-bill, and flip as necessary. You can rent or sublet a condo while you sell off your stuff, go to boat shows and other fun things.
The best time to buy will be in February, when the boats look cold and miserable and dirty and the owners don't want to deal with launching a boat they are trying to sell.
