Hi Jackie & Jon!
If it's any consolation, you're certainly not alone in having these feelings.
It's only natural - afterall, you have memories (fond or otherwise!) in the home.........but remember, you're not leaving the hapyy memories behind - you're taking them with you.
I had a seller sob out loud when we first signed contracts.
She insisted on showing me where her son had chewed on the stairway railing when he was a toddler - Yes, I saw his toothmarks! (I am NOT making this up).
We then proceeded to sign the FULL asking price offer, and I realized her tears weren't tears of joy - she was so upset about leaving the house and moving on.
She was fine....the feelings passed.
Change can be scary........but in no time, we all adjust to it.
That "new" place becomes "home sweet home" in no time, and you will soon be creating new memories there!
All the best!
Relax - all will be fine!!
