I tried to sell my house a few years ago so I could move closer to my parents and siblings. I only had it on the market for 6 months then took it off for the winter. When I wanted to put it back on, it appraised at $20,000 less than what I owed. The house is a single family, 5 bedroom home. It's on a hill and when it was on the market, the hill was the issue. It's just too big for me now physically and financially. When I bought it with my ex we had 8 people living in it at any given time. Now it's me and my DS7 basically although DS21 has a room and "lives" with us, but we never see him.
Yesterday I'm talking to a co-worker about finding her a house in my town. She seems eager to move into the town. She told me about houses smaller than mine, but are asking way too much. I just want out of my house and willing to take a small loss. I told her my price and it's $10,000 less than the houses they've been looking at, but $9,000 more than their top price they want to pay. I would love to sell for what I owe (which is still $3,000 more than their top price). It needs work so I would consider their top price and pay the $3,000 difference if they paid all closing costs, etc. Neither of us is working with a realtor.
I don't want to get my hopes up, but this would be so awesome. I need something much smaller financially so I can start paying on my high debt.
Wish me luck!!
