Is there still new home construction in your neighborhood because if there is many times the builder will under-cut you with all kinds of incentives. Or maybe it was entered into the system wrong. Talk with your Realtor and see what they have to say. ... more

There are a lot of other important factors that aren't stated in your question, or that only you can answer. Thus, it's impossible to provide a definite answer. You should check with a financial consultant or tax advisor, since there are a number of variables, and ways of structuring solutions.

However, moving back sounds like it's certainly something you should consider, as you are. Eliminating a major monthly payment, moving into a good house in a better (as you judge it) school district), with more earnings potential for you. Those are all important factors.

Other agents here will advise you, correctly, to make sure your home is properly priced for sale. I suspect that, if you bought it just three years ago, that you aren't able to lower the price much further. But that's something you should discuss with your Realtor. You say it's priced competitively. Prices fluctuate. Have you had a CMA in the past 60 days? What input is your Realtor providing on the prospects of you selling your house?

Those are some of the question's I'd suggest you ask. But, as I said above, your strategy of moving back sounds like it might address most of your problems.

Good luck.

Why not expose it to te open market and get more for it? I would get it listed and ensure that its exposed to a wider audience. Hopefully then you'll get more money and potentially even multiple offers.
Good luck,

What does your agent state? Is your home staged correctly appears like a new home, closets cleaned, curb appeal and etc. The housing market is down, it also depends on the value of your home, the more expensive homes usually are on the market longer, is your house considered to be fashion forward. What is the area sales, how long are other homes on the market. Now since school is ending homes sales should be increasing, from Oct - April homes don't usually sale as quickly during the busy months.

Hi Ana,

The questions you need to answer are do you want to move, what is your current interest rate vs the rate of any new mortgage you would obtain, and how much more is the house that you want to buy than your current home.

There are several factors to consider but you can always finance your new home with a 15 year amortization and make extra payments on your principal so that your new house would be paid off in 10 years.

Hope that gives you a little more insight. Consult a knowledgeable REALTOR in your area for specific information.

Good luck to you.

John, If your house if listed through a Realtor, let him/her know and they can put it in the private field in the MLS. First you have to get the feedback from the agents that showed your house. What did they think? what did the buyers think? may be it's just a pricing issue, then you would have to be more competitive with that, if not, it could be the way the house shows, tobacco or pets smell? Realtors are usually honest about that. Anything that you can address, and then if it's a question of floorplan or room sizes etc... that's nothing you can do except wait for the right buyer. Also, instead of offering an agent bonus, you may want to offer to pay some of the buyer's closing costs... that's always attractive... ... more

Gloria... if you would like to get a comprehensive CMA along with a timing analysis.. which is extremely important... you can go to our website. We would also need to see the inside for more pertinent info: floorings, bath upgrades, etc. etc.

However, currently solds in the market there are 3 homes in your subdivision that fit your close criteria. The range of sales price was from $185k to $287k.

Hope that helps

Hello Bernardine. A bedroom usually has to have a window, heating and a closet to be considered a bedroom. Many times, when a room does not have a closet, the room will be called a den or an office. You can check with your local building department for the specific requirements in your area. ... more
