If you find an unfurnished unit that will do a short term term lease there are companies that will allow you to furnish the property with rental furniture. they will deliver as well as pick it up when your lease is complete.

Thought I would throw it out there for you as it may be an option you have not considered.

I see this thread is from a year ago though so hopefully you got it all worked out by now.

The question to ask yourself is where did the problem lie. There are typically four reasons why a house didn't sell.

Communication, Price, Condition and Marketing.

The first three can be the fault of the agent or yourself or a combination of both. If you want to get your house sold you need to objectively sit back and see where the problem lies. Just about every home is saleable in 45-90 days. Period.

Below is a link to a series of articles about re-listing your home.

Ill leave you with one thought...

Doing the same thing will obtain the same results!

If you want to sell your house something needs to change.

If your not comfortable with your Realtor you should change. If they are representing you and they are your buyer agent they work for you and should advise you. You have the right to do a home inspection even on new construction. Anybody can make a mistake, I have seen new homes that the homes inspector found a few electrical issue that shouldn't have happened. But they did and the home inspector caught them. New doesn't mean perfect, If it doesn't seem right it probably isn't. Make sure your Realtor keep you informed of your rights, other wise you have the wrong Realtor. Good Luck! ... more

It has always been our value system that a transaction must be a win/win situation for both parties or no deal. With our initial buyer consultation we go over the offer process, and how we come up with our reccommendations and advice on what to offer. If our clients are inclined to low ball one of the points we make is that if you offer too low you run the risk of insulting the seller so that he won't even counter. The other is that you don't want to make an offer so low that the seller must bring money to the table for the priveledge of selling you their home. Most of all, we point out that if the seller feels like they are being taken advantage of, if there are issues with the sale, or if you need them to cooperate with a glitch, they may find themselves on the short end of the stick. Win/Win is always the best way to go.

Sometimes we have clients that are just bound and determined to offer the lowball deal, and so we offer it as they dictate, they end up losing the house because they insulted the seller, and then they listen the next time.
