We've had our house on the market for over a year now. Had lots of people look and lots that said they really liked the house, etc. But nothing ever came of it. We finally decided to look into short sale as a choice. A company came and made an offer. We're still waiting to hear a final word and find when we need to be out! In the mean time, another party made an offer! Either way we are not going to come out ahead. We are sad to not see the profit that we should have seen as we've done alot of improvements, etc but in this market we are just happy to walk away even.
On top of that, my parents put their house on the market this fall as well. They hadn't had anyone look at it. Well yesterday...they had their first lookers, and they came back to look at it again today. The realitor called to tell my parents that they are writing them an offer!!! Cross your fingers for all of us!!!!! Yay!!!
Lots of packing to come!
