Debbi did a great job assessing the primary issues, to answer your question about how much you would lose...

Depends on the market value, but very doubtful it will sell for much more than you bought it, you'd probably need to bring about 5% of the sale price to the closing table, depending on the various fees in your area. I assume you don't have that cash laying around (most people don't!).

You could try renting it out, then finding a place for yourself to rent. You'd probably have to wait a few years before the value increased enough for you to sell and break even. Housing is a long term investment, so it takes a while to make money in real estate.

Why did you buy the house? What did you like about it? Debbi is spot on to try to focus on those items and give it a little bit more time.

If your goal is to be closer to the city than Woodstock or Saugerties, there are other country possibilities. High Falls which is near Marbletown is charming. New Paltz is a college town and has a cool village with lots of shops and restaurants, not to mention great hiking.
If you'd like to discuss other possibilities, I'd be happy to give you the 50 Cent tour and give you an idea of the various options available to you. Best, Marcia Weiss,,

Are you still having trouble selling your home? Aside from the general economy could there be a more internal reason? Is the house in good condition, staged either professionally or yourself to attract buyers, uncluttered and clean? Yes foreclosures affect all listings as appraisals are scarce and forecloure sales are usually low.
