And for people are not aware. Reserve us sign up to have their lives disrupted on very short notice. And what's happening in your case? Found out. I am pointing for nine months. So we've decided that it'd be best for my wife to move home. You know, so she's close with family gone. The plan is returned home from deployment. I would like to go back to school finish my PHD. My issue. I'm not sure what to do with the home mortgage. The nice house. You think we could rent it out? But the other option is telling, but there's also, you know, the hassle factor being gone. I just wanted to see what your by guiding on how to think about what to do with our home saying if I had this, right? Nine months later, you're going right back to the town where you own this house. No Clark relocating to to another state. If you're relocating the house that you have how far away are you going to be likely where you would relocate to? Fortunately, I know exactly. It's a be in Kentucky followed in Charlotte. But it's big university Kentucky. So that made our drive sell it. Okay. Yeah. That that's the case where you're leaving something behind that would just be it'd be too much hassle factor. Okay. And have you made any money on it at least on paper in the time? You've owned the house. About two hundred. I think it's worth twenty five. Right. You're not gonna clear much after selling costs selling expenses. But I think that it's best to move on to sell that house. Have you told me yet? And I misunderstood you that you're going to go back there after your deployment. And again, thank you for your service. And if you told me you were going back there, I'd say, yeah. Put it on hold essentially by renting it, but since you know, you're not going back then. That needs to just be sold. Factor. I think that that would that would be a lot cleaner in about them, not paying or whatever the case, and what's your PHD gonna be in? Not going to believe me. It's actually Musicology background was impossible Kansas. I have a the music and university of Kentucky. Gimme a complete right? Offer school job. Once I get there.
