I am afraid that our house will never sell..or that it will take so long to sell and we will have to keep lowering the price that we will be in worse shape financially than we are now...if that is even possible. Our family has been all kinds of split up for the past 15 months.
I love our house. It is in a fantastic neighborhood in what everyone says is the "best" elementary school zone in the city. It is spacious and has a great floor plan. We have a neighborhood pool, playground and a pond that is stocked with fish. What family wouldn't want to live here?
The economy is shit and a very large company headquartered in close proximity announced that it will be laying off about 2100 people by 2013. Houses are being listed like crazy in this area. For Sale signs went up on Monday in front of 2 more houses in my neighborhood.
We CANNOT stay here. It is not even an option and if it was I wouldn't want to stay. Big Yankee and I have had three layoffs in three years between us. He spent nearly two years trying to find a job he liked that paid a living wage because I DIDN'T want to move. Now I just want to get the hell out of here. He now has a job he loves and we NEED to move across country to join him.
