4 months after close, things have settled. We're essentially unpacked, and I've spotted a lot of those 'little' things that will be fun weekend projects for the next few years.The only big issue is the roof, which we knew had a problem due to the home inspection. We got a price reduction (cash to close--same difference for us, really, except for the minimal tax change) but the cost to fix ends up being about twice what we negotiated--problem was more extensive than realized. Glad we rejected their initial offer on that!
It looks like the delisting season has begun. I have a few saved listings in Oakton that I thought were priced too high but wanted to see what they sold at, and 3 of them went "Off Market" today. It was only about 1 a month for the past 6 months or so.
http://franklymls.com/FX7300613I love this remark.". Sold "As Is". Wont last long."yet it's 150 DOMSomebody doesn't get pricing or thestatement "Won't last long".4 open houses, no sale, obviously mispriced.
Another open house, really? 18th time's a charm I guess...FX7296229
Nice house but definitely overpriced. 2010 assessment is $582K. Even Zillow rates it at more than $100K less than asking. Just another illustration of the fact that no matter how nice the house, if it is delusionally priced, it is going to sit. Makes me want to walk around with a public announcement placard."2006 is OVER."
""net imputed rent from owner-occupied housing.""Newbieit's the calculayion between buying and renting.if you rent a place for 2K/month but to buy it costs $1800/month after taxes, then you figure its worth 2K/year in savings and that should payoff closing costs within 3-5 years.now if you buy a place that costs you more then rent you are speculating.
