My Next Move: Since My Divorce


After 17 years of marriage, Mandy Walker was getting a divorce and debated whether or not she wanted to keep the house she had raised her family in. Financially, it was too expensive, and, realistically, it was too big for her to manage. So she put it up for sale, but had no luck in the real estate market.

But she couldn't keep her teenage children displaced for long, so she was forced to buy a new home even though her old one remained unsold. She also chose to remain in the same town, which wasn't easy since there were very few new housing developments there. So how did she make this transition as easy as possible for her children, while sticking within her budget? Watch the video to find out.
