Selling a home in a rural area....someday:)
DH and I built a new house in '09 (started late '08). We are on 96 acres high on a hill with beautiful vistas all around. The area is known for fishing and hunting; huge lake close by. We are about 20 minutes from a town and 30 minutes from a little bit bigger town(has a Safeway). We are an hour and a half from the nearest Costco which we go to about twice a month. We have a few neighbors with similar properties, at least 20 acres. I noticed that some of the houses that were for sale when we moved here are still for sale today! Some have sold, of course, but to say the market is slow here would be an understatement! Anyway, we plan to sell in about 6 years and move closer to a bigger city, suburb, etc. What do you think our strategy should be for selling? Do we need to list it 2 years early? Should we try to find an agent in a bigger city? Any ideas?
