Re: Ready to get out of dodge if only the house would sell

Mike, We sold our home in Michigan in February. We bought a home in Central Florida 2 years prior. Tried to keep both but was to much work and money for the perks. Took us 9 months from start to finish. Was just woundering how your deal was working out. We had so many buyers and so few signed contracts that it was very nerve wracking. Sold several houses in my life and this last one, because of the market, was the worst experience by far.

If you think nobody cares whether you're alive or dead, try missing a couple of mortgage payments.

Well, don't leave me hanging. We are trying to sell, too. Did the Michigander make it to Tennessee?

Never underestimate the difficulty of changing anyone's false beliefs by using facts.

I am sure that the real estate market will turn around eventually, but it seems like right now is the time to be buying, not selling. People still need to live somewhere - even if the economy has gone to H E double hockeysticks. It's not like 1/2 the population died or something.

Hope the house sells and remember if you replace that house with another investment that is also underpriced, it's not so bad.
