Thanks for all your responses. Let me respond to some of your questions. I can't keep it, and do not want to. This was my first house, but it was the wrong house for me. It was nicely updated, but some things were "covered up". The systematic repairs are too much for my income and borrowing ability. But a seasoned homeowner with some money to invest would probably sail through these repairs with no concern. Yes, I owe more than it's worth. No equity at all. But that's almost everyone .. right? I did notice that all the homes for sale in my neighborhood have been sold.
I am not opposed to being a landlord but I would still need to make the repairs to rent it out successfully. It's a great house for a family, especially a family with older kids or a parent who wants a separate space downstairs. The two car garage is still intact, it's not converted. Have two driveways, and house sits on a hill, a corner lot.
My house needs rescuing from ME ...LOL
Thanks for your advice, I will research all options.
