Argh!!! House selling blues...
My house is for sale. I am in Hell.
My DH is now my very-soon-to-be-EXDH, and I didn't need a 3000 sq.ft. house for just me and the DD (with the associated mortgage and utilities). I also just wanted to start "fresh" alone in a cute smaller house.
The housing market, unfortunately, could not be more in the crapper. We have the house (which had over $20K in improvements between granite counters, landscaping w/irrigation, custom wood blinds, etc.) listed for $15K LESS than what we purchased it for about 5 years ago, and it is a good $25K less than others in the neighborhood that are similar in size/quality.
Yes, the yard is awkward in shape--it's the same size as everyone else's, but it's "pie" shaped, so large front and smaller back yard. But it's landscaped to the 9's, low maintenance, color almost all year long, etc. And we are walking distance to 2 parks and the community pool (like 2 blocks).
However, while the lack of a rolling back 40 is the major comment from those that do come take a gander, the biggest thing is that there are just.no.showings. And it's not just us--realtor pulls stats every week and people just are not looking in our neighborhood, maybe anywhere.
It's now been on the market 5 months. There is another smaller house (same price, 800 sq.ft. smaller) that has been on the marked 1.5 YEARS. Holy Guacamole, Batman!
Whaaaaa! I just want out so I can start my life over....
