My Head is Going to Explode

So Im trying to sell my house right now to buy a new house.. House has been on the market for only three weeks..which is usually enough to sell in my area only August is a bad month to sell your house..

So now Im* buying my new house anyways and still trying to sell the old house..in any case I think my head is going to explode with all the thoughts of being broke.(not really but its gonna feel like it) In any case at least now I can stop cleaning and just start moving stuff into the new house!

Just thought id share my frustration..


P.S. Anyone wanna buy an almost 2000sq ft Zero-Lot in corallville?

My house is not overpriced. I am selling for what my neighbors sold for weeks in advance to my house going on the market.

Re: My Heads Going to Explode

it may be the area the house is in.. i dont know



i would have to know more about the house and everything to know what may be causing your house not to sell fast.


also do you have a agent.. they should know whats up... thats what they are getting paid for!

Re: My Heads Going to Explode

a good house this time a year shouldnt last long in the market if the price and everything else is right! atleast thats what happens here.


i think your agent needs to work a lil better.

i am no expert or even novice...but if you are really in need to get the house off fast.
Maybe have it appraised and charge below that price, be able to use the appraiser as a ref. for potential buyers of course

It's like using KBB in a way. Just a though

Re: My Heads Going to Explode

Same thing just happened here. Couple went to settle on new house before they sold their current one. Less than 3 days later current one sold.

As for timing, August sucks. Most people of either on vacation, just off vacation or getting ready for the new school year. Probably ranks with December as being one of the worst.

The other thing is all of the press in July was talking about housing bubble about to burst. People are a little nervous.

Give it time especially if you can hang with two mortgages for a month or so.

Re: My Heads Going to Explode

IM not all that worried about holding on to both mortgages right now. I am not going to sell the house for less than what its worth.
Ill hold out and pay the two mortgage, but itd be nice to get rid of the old house sometime soon. My heads just ready to explode because I hate making large financial decisions
