Bucks... Unfortunately the market four years ago is different from the market today. If you did a four year "Rip van Winkle," you'd wonder if you were on the same planet. Not to fear, unless you are contemplating selling tomorrow. In a year or so, we'll level out, or at least I think so and hope so.
As a reality check, the stock market is up about twenty five percent since January. While home prices are not up in the same magnitude, hang in there.
Now, you understand that have also been whipsawed by the mortgage folks. Four years ago, they were desperate to get loans out and working. Money was just lying around to be used. Bang, the bubble burst. Now the results are that no money is available and housing prices are adjusted down.
Many lenders send out a guy to do a drive by every year or so. I do some myself for some of them. This is strictly an "in this neighborhood" kind of thing. No specific evaluation of anything that can't be seen from the street.
On the other hand, $70,0000 dollars of windows can shrink pretty fast; theyâ€™re four years old now and your neighbors all have some windows too. Maybe some of them are as nice as yours and some not, but they all keep out the rain and snow and perhaps a fly or two. Sorry, I don't have (never have had) a client that asked me to find a house with a $70,000 window installation. You get the point? Theyâ€™re nice but selling them to a buyer may be difficult.
Lots of luck.
