There's a dead hobo on the patio and an old barbed wire on the funeral fire

We sold our house. It was easy. We set our "lowest acceptable price" about $20,000 higher than what is reasonable and our broker offered the house to an investor as is. It sold right away without even being listed for sale.

We could have done a few days worth of work and asked for another $5000 but it really isn't worth it. Having the house sold AS IS takes a lot of pressure off of us to do the myriad repairs and improvements that we've been avoiding. Now we get the pleasure of trying to BUY a house in a market gone mad. Most likely down in Saratoga Springs.

If we sold to a family I would have sold for less. The upside to selling to the investor is that they will let us rent the house until we find a new place to live.

I'll keep you posted. Sorry, I've been too busy to write.

Congrats! Now I just hope you have good luck buying a new one.

Glad you sold the house...My wife patrols quite often down in Saratoga Springs, so if she starts using racial profiling like the Sandy cops, let me know...I might be able to persuade her to stop. :)
