First time seller - stressing myself to death
I bought in 2008. I thought the market had bottomed out. I bought on USDA rural housing loan with 0 down. Stayed in my son's school district and intended to move in 2011 when he graduated. The market had other ideas.
Was finally able to put the place on the market just under 2 weeks ago. When you take all the fees into account, I am iffy on whether I'll make a few grand, break even, or lose a few grand. I have no emotional attachment to my house, feel like I'm realistic. I let my realtor set the selling price, I just want to move out of this city. Having said that, here are some questions:
I've had 2 showings in the time I've been on the market, both were ones that called same day. My realtor is a friend of mine and new to the game, so while i trust her..at the same time I don't.
The 2nd showing was this evening, and they took one of the info packets. I know when I was looking I didn't take a packet unless I was thinking of making an offer. Should I take this as a good sign?
