so, I am moving from the midwest to the west coast. A whole house. You can only imagine how much money this costs. I'm at $7300 now (for moving van and automobiles). $2,300 for deposit on a new rental home.
This is before I count the loaders and unloaders, the moving blankets, straps, boxes, tape, utilities, transportation out there, hotel stays, rental cars, utility appointments, alarm system and the thousands and thousands of dollars involved with putting one's house on the market.
