The Incredible Shrinking House

So, did you hear that the housing market is in a bit of a slump? We had heard that too but we were not prepared for what our new (really great) realtor had for us. We might be able to sell our house for what we paid for it...if we're lucky. If we use a realtor, we won't break even.
I may have mentioned in previous posts that our house is 872 782 square feet. Baby #3 is coming in September. We actually thought we could survive a while that way but Elliet starts school this year and we are not diggin' this school district.
So...shit.
We're thinking we'll save/pay off debt and list in January. The market may not get better but it's the best time to sell and we'll have some money to bring to the table. It's gonna get tight around here! In more ways than one.

  1. That's so frustrating! But I think the market will turn around after a bit. I mean, the whole problem was that people bought too much house for their paycheck, so once that stops, folks oughta be able to br reasonable...unless the government tries to fix it. Then we could be in trouble...
