Sold in two days!
Oldest son and DIL sold their house two days after putting it on the market for full asking price. They had done their research before they priced it and with the agents help put a fair price on it. It's a starter home low 60's. It had been the worst house on the street when they bought it but over the last few years they tamed the landscape, made a few improvements, did some updates and painted the entire inside.
What's really amazing is there are six other houses on the market on their street that have been sitting there for months unsold. Part of the reason is unrealistic price expectations and part of it unwillingness to do a better job getting the property ready for sale. Fences falling down, ruts in driveway..you know little things that are more annoying than anything else but scream lack of home care.
The deal took a bit longer than a month to get done. A few screw ups on the paperwork. The kids are thrilled they got out of it what they wanted and they don't have to deal with the lawn care issue all summer long.
So there is hope for those who are selling.
