Thank you for your first comment. Actually, in real life, I am quite sane and highly responsible. My parents were honest and that is how I was raised, and they taught me that I am on this earth to help others.

Never let an unneutered or not spayed cat outside!

RE: your second comment, I do know that, am not upset whatsoever and have come to view this thread as almost a sport <ggg>!

Oh, thank you on both scores! We grieve because our tiny dog should have lived for 15 to 17 years and he died of heart failure, as I said, secondary to mitral valve failure, at only 9 years old and not fully able to feel total trust. But he did feel love from us, we do know that. He was heartbreakingly vulnerable. We grieve because he came to us at 3 and a half having been in 2 kill shelters, adopted for a month, returned, then taken by a saintly man who owns his own private sanctuary for small dogs on death row (he has saved literally thousands and adopts them out, relying on volunteers and donations: Small Dog Rescue, aka Woof Manor, Princeton NJ.) and then our dog, Manny, was overlooked by potential adoptors for 9 months probably because he had bad demodex mange (caused by stress, our dermatologist told us later on) and was nippy with some people. When we got him at age 3 and a half, he was very scared but he took like a duck to water our disabled young man (friend) whom we have been helping for several years and I think that for some reason he was reminded of some kind human in his past.

But he only had 5 1/2 years more of life and we grieve that he didn't get a full life.

I can tell you already care about homeless animals. It is clear that you do, too!!

This seems to be the whole thread in a nutshell.

I'm not going to bother with you after this post as you clearly will just not understand that you can not proclaim yourself to be right based on an appraisers estimate if the house hasn't sold. You also just flit all over the place with your posts, reply to half a sentence and then reply again to another half of a sentence (There is a quote button to make it much easier to reply to posts and also for others to follow the progression), say one thing then say another all the while refusing to admit that your posts had major inconsistencies. It was right there in black and white in the post where I put 3 of your posts one under the other where you said completely different things about the house next door, here is a sample.

Quote:
it turns out that the house next door, empty for over 3 years due to water damage and the fact that the owner already has 3 other homes where she can live, is finally for sale. The house needs a lot of work and is identical to ours (built in 1920)
Quote:
The house next door was totally rehabbed inside due to having good insurance from the water damage. But the kitchen was only "remodeled" not all brand new. She has older wood cabinets from 20 years ago, admittedly very nice ones, with new granite counters, older stove, brand new ductless heating system on second floor (we have it in our entire house), new interior walls and paint, etc.
You said you should have been more clear but you were more than not clear, just look at what I italicized. In the first sentence you try to make it seem as if the house has been empty because it has water damage but you then post that it was totally rehabbed. Those posts were 5 hrs and 25 minutes apart, not months apart that it would have taken to do the rehab. You were clearly intending to downplay the value of the other home to make your claim of value more believable but it did not work.

As far as not knowing what my sentence means, do you not understand it? I thought it was clear.
To start a thread titled "I was right about our agents" and then come in and proclaim that you were right and everyone else was wrong to call you out in the other thread, that is a thread that is crying out "Look At Me!!!". Your other thread was closed but you couldn't leave it at that.

Let us know when your home sells (I don't really care but I know you will) and come back and proclaim you were right again (You know you will even if it sells for less than the house next door).

What confuses me most is your house is listed for $650K, but hasn't sold yet. So how can you put it on the market for $100K higher and think it will sell?

I haven't combed through the thread, so perhaps I missed something. But your house is only worth what you sell it for. We had a similar experience selling our house, hubby was not happy with the pricing of our agent. It appraised for much higher (NYC area as well), but she priced it lower than the appraisel. We had multiple offers the first weekend, lower than we wanted, so we sat on it for awhile (stupidly, but hindsite is always 20/20). Finally sold two months later.

Why don't you take multiple pictures of your house, inside and out, and gives us your zip code - and we'll let you know what we think it's worth =)

Oh, and pictures of the neighbor's house too.

Hi,

You did miss something. We never put the house on the market even though we signed a contract (all that is explained in a first thread). Long story, that. The house was set for $650K in the contract. Then the house next door sold for $740K.

The house that sold for $740K is almost identical to ours but needs thousands to meet the condition of our house.

I appreciate your situation, but it is not comparable to ours. Our house would go for more than the house next door or at least certainly not less.

You cannot have read this thread. My house has never been up for sale, not for one day.
