Thank you, everyone!

Yes, I was satisfied with the prices of the homes that sold quickly. My realtor's suggested listing price is on the lower end of that range. She also suggested that we list it at that price for 2 weeks and then drop it $3,000. So we'll see what happens.

I'd still love to move into an apartment early, but am playing things by ear for now. I still have some painting and floor work to do before it goes on the market.

Interesting that people wouldn't want to look at a home if an animal lived there....but it makes sense. I know people with animals whose houses are...well...gross. I don't think mine is, but I've gotten into the habit of vacuuming every day and will have the carpets professionally cleaned before the house goes on the market. And I've asked friends to honestly tell me whether the house smells like cat - they all said no. My realtor said it didn't smell either. But I can see the concern.

I also talked to a friend who sold a condo a couple of years ago. He said that there were many times on the weekends that he, his wife, and daughter had to leave at a moment's notice so that their place could be shown. (They were at work and school all day during the week, so that was never a problem.)

Oh, decisions, decisions! :)

You really should find out in greater detail why exactly they've missed 2 closing dates. Was their debt to asset ratio to great? Did they not have the closing costs funds to close? Was the amount they're putting down insufficient? Are they just stalling hoping for a better loan package? You should've actually looked at the pre-approval that they presented with their offer, research the lender they're using with the Better Business Bureau, Mass Division of Banks, Google them for problems closing. Were there alot of terms on their pre-approval that needed to be completed prior to closing that have not been met in a timely fashion? Find out exactly which loan program they were approved for and consult a mortgage professional you trust to review the buyers and see if they actually have the capabilities to close, perhaps their lender is not as good as one you know. Finally did your home appraise for a sufficient amount? Alot of details are needed, most of which should've been answered prior to the first closing date they missed. You may have serious problems that need to be addressed with these buyers. ... more
