It really all depends on your home, its value in today's market, how much you owe, what you can
realistically sell it for, and what your actual net to seller after commissions, outstanding taxes,
survey, closing costs etc. will be and what will you do thereafter...
In order for you to find out what the market is like in your area, you need to connect with an experience local Realtor who will be able to give you some insights, nobody can predict the future, really not
It depends on so many factors, the economy, the unemployment in your area, and how many short sales and foreclosures are on the market and may still be coming on the market and how many distressed homeowners will have to sell their homes below market just to get out.
A good local Realtor with many years of experience could help you out with some more distinct numbers and some suggestions.....
It all also depends what your next step would or could be.

If you want to know rental values in your area, feel free to contact me. If not, I wish you the best of luck!
You find yourself in a very difficult situation, but you are not alone. Many people purchased homes in neighborhoods that included neighbors who cannot afford to maintain or landlords who do not seem maintain their residences.
Edith is correct in stating that you need to find a professional who will be honest with you and generate the information about the sale of your home in today's market. You need to understand all of the options available and weigh the positive and negative impacts of moving versus staying put.
Remember that information is your friend. You may not wish to hear the results, but not getting valid results can make your decision skewed and coerce you into not doing the right thing for your and your family. If you have any further questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me. Best of luck.....................chris 302-562-0628
Then all depends on the market in your area, on your home itself, i.e. age, upgrades, size, lot size
and so much more....
And do not forget to put into the entire discussion, what will you do after the sale, where would you
go..... May be the latter is even more important than the first.... but make sure you sit with an honest and straightforward Realtor who puts the true facts and numbers in front of you.
I am wondering if the village health department and animal control is not taking care of RATS
Iknow that several suburban villages do take care of rats..... That would be my first call.....
Mice is another story, but rats I think they do check where they are nesting, they double check if they are still using the hide out, and then
they put poison to kill them....
Hope this helps.
