Sale is done. She's paid. Think she cares?

The broker DID do the changes. It's all up to the MLS in our area to get it done. They have always been HABITUALLY SLOW. Stop blaming her. She's busted her tail to get this all done. It was a nightmare. I DO blame the transplants who bought homes and left us with 43 foreclosures/auctions within a 2 mile radius. They cost me money. WHY because they couldn't afford the home they bought and bailed. At least my was fully paid off.

Now I have one with no mortgage again. End of story. Some of you come off as armchair quarterbacks and know better about everything. All of us did it right. I know we did. And I've seen crappier stuff out there than what we did with pictures and the listing.

Thank GOD it'll be over my dead body the next sale. Done and over with.

Well, come on, in our defense, you did come on here asking whether you should drop your price. Then you posted the listing. Of course you're going to get feedback, from people who either know from experience or are conjecturing on why your house is not selling. The criticism of your realtor was mainly because of the pitiful photos and her suggestion to put the house on the market before the new floors were in. That was valid.

In the end, it all came down to price -- when you lowered it to something realistic, it sold! But yes, it does suck when foreclosures end up dragging down the comps for your home.

Yes, but armchair quarterbacks from states that haven't got a CLUE about NYS seem to be godly gurus. I did ask for feed back. I made a HUGE mistake by giving access to listing as these bottom feeders thought it a game and would book appointments or giving me prank phone calls. Yeah I have a attitude about it. I asked the moderator to pull it, they would not. SO not only did I get steamed about some of the incredibly rude comments, but I was harassed by people who had WAY to much time on their hands.

I am glad it's over. We lost a great home. It's a full on bedroom community to NYC. Commuters galore. We built it with the thought we'd stay there and pass it onto our kids. But 9/11 happened and my area went to the doghouse with transplants fleeing NYC/LI. They brought our taxes there through the roof. No one in their right mind can justify it either.

Harp all you all want about the pictures. I've seen WAY worse out there. Or NONE at all. My agent is one of the best out there in our area. We decided to go back to her even though her business wasn't quite off the ground yet. She's got the experience and know how.

And it wasn't a realistic price. I just got tired of wasted days out of our house for no shows-again probably through this site. Which wasted a LOT of everyone's time. It appraised at 300K. Didn't get anywhere near it. But what ever. It's over, done and I have a house here again with no mortgage. That's all that mattered.
