I am also miserable because I bought a property I don't love. It's 100+ year old and it's not well maintained by the previous owner. The place is filthy, has rodent problem, and many things broke right after I moved in, including a structural problem that costs thousands to fix. Location is convenient but also noisy and unsafe - my home was broken in just weeks after I moved in. I've been living here for a few months only but have encountered so many issues in different areas in my life. This place seems to have a bad vibe and I feel miserable. I know the house value in this area goes up quickly, so I want to sell it after two years, but then suddenly Trump's new tax plan came out and it changes the rules so I'll have to live here for 5 years to get tax exemption for capital gain.

I'm sorry you and your house are not getting along. Take Elizabeth's advice and talk with a local realtor. Even if you financially can not get out of it now, that realtor may be able to give you some clarity of your options. If not now, but how to get to where you want to be.

I trust everything will work out in the end for you and your husband.

When Wall Street started to scramble a few years ago, Lehmen Brothers closed and other big boys in the investment world called for help; someone benefited. The small mom and pop and mid-sized trading and investment firms benefited from the fallout. As a result of less competition these firms had some of the best years in their history. So approaching real estate listing and sellers is the same. When there is less competition and real buyers on the hunt; you win. ... more
