    Worth it or worthwhile

    Dear Teacher,

    Which one is correct?

    We are thinking to move to a bigger house but I do not think that it is worth it, since there is just the two of us.

    Thank you.

    Re: Worth it or worthwhile

    I'd say "thinking of" not "thinking to."

    I'd say "worth it" but find nothing wrong with "worthwhile."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
