What I would recommend is that you have at an area Realtor provide you with a Free Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). This CMA will show you what homes in your neighborhood are selling for, how long they have been on the market, and what your competition would be. The Realtor should also be able to provide you with a preliminary Net-Sheet which will show you what other closing costs you are likely to incur so that you can determine if selling would be a financially sound decision for you or not.
Additionally, you can ask the Realtor to provide you the CMA for the lease homes in your area as well. This way, you can weigh all options to determine the best route for you and your family.
