I hate my home i bought in the suburbs, what can I do with it now?

Hi all

Long story short: I’m 29 and bought a home in a Dallas suburb to be closer to my parents, but now i hate it. What can I do with the home now to make better use of it?

Background:

I’m 29, single, good paying job in healthcare. I was living out of state but returned back to Texas because my almost 70 year old dad had some health scares. I bought a 3/2 home in a suburb about 15 minutes away from my parents. My dads health has resolved, Thought it was a heart issue but ended being a minor issue. Now that I’ve lived it in for 3 months, I can’t shake the feeling that I really dont like the home. Edit: the home is a 3/2, historic home, so it’s very unique in terms of style and size it has southern architecture, the facade, brick house, the windows and columns are very southern. The rest of the neighborhood is like typical 80s budget homes. the lot is huge, ~2100 sqft whereas other homes are closer to ~1400 soft I’m not sure if these qualities are good or bad… The qualities that i thought i would grow to like are now the reasons I don’t like it. Suburbs (i like the city more and being able to walk everywhere) Spacious! (I’m happy to live in a comfy closet), Space to entertain! (made me realize…. i don’t have a big friend pool and they all have their own husbands/wives/kids now so they just can’t come over anymore) Close to my parents! (dad is ok now, what’s the point in having a home so close if I could just live with them…) its quirky! its the only historic home in an area full of standard homes built in the 80s. (Now, it’s very strange everytime i return home) I also feel financially and geographically anchored by the home…

What are some ways to better utilize the home? Any advice or positive thoughts would be appreciated… haha…… (my brain can only think of these options but please let me know if there are better options).

Leasing it out and live with my parents Or live with my brother (I talked to my loan officer, she’s not happy of course but she says there’s no restrictions as far as my mortgage goes) Edit: I got a qoute on landlord insurance instead of home owners and I’ve looked at comps around the area, and I’m pretty certain I could lease it for at least my PITI. Comps as far as 3 bedroom / 2 bath, are as much as i can compare, my home is historic so it’s very unique compared to the rest of the city. Rent out a / both rooms and live there still I can’t airbnb it (city has banned it) Sell it at a loss (the home is giving me a lot of anxiety/stress but not enough… yet) a combination of leasing it out and selling it in the near future?
