Well, I did it

I listed my house for sale late Friday and it closed last night. Now I have to find another place to live. By June 15th. It went for $15,000 less than asking, but that's $10,000 more than I thought I would get, so I'm ok with that. Now I have to find another place to live. (Did I already say that?)

@BarBaraPrz Yes, when we sold our home in 2011, it had to have granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors. Had to do all that to sell it. I do hope you find a nice little bungalow. I grew up in one and it was, and still is, one well-built house.

With the housing market the way it is right now, I'm surprised it went for $15,000 under asking. But then, my husband's work partner put his house on the market at $459,000 (I think) and the realtor told him he would get more than half a million for it. I didn't think so. His house is a bungalow, smaller than ours, he's lived there more than 20 years and really hasn't done any renovations. I was right. I'm not sure whether he got above or below asking but he didn't get half a million or more. Perhaps the market is lowering because just maybe buyers are taking a stand and refusing to pay outrageous prices. Congrats on the sale. I hope you find a new home soon.
