I would agree, yours is likely a rare opinion.

But, my damn Sister did the exact thing.

Peak of pandemic, my Sister and her Husband decided that San Diego was no longer for them. They lived there since 2001, raised three kids but were done.
Sold their house outside of El Cajon and moved East.

Bought a house in Wilmington, NC, 5 minutes from the Ocean. They were in the Wilmington house for less than 9 months and were miserable.

Sold the Wilmington house after 10 months, somehow somehow more or less broke even/some profit and moved back to San Diego.
They are in an AirBnB near Mount Helix in San Diego right now and are browsing for their next home.

All in all, they estimated they are out around $80 thousand dollars in miscellaneous everything costs related to moving coast to coast, twice, basically within a year.

I found it colossally ignorant, but they are rich and I am not.
