Put our house on the market with a real estate agent

As I mentioned in my previous post we finally put our house on the market with a real estate agent after a year out in the market for sale by owner. Yes my husband decided to use a real estate agent to sell our house due to the fact that it’s really taking too long to sell it by owner. It’s been 3 days since we called the real estate agent to handle this house for sale. My husband and the real estate agent met each other last Sunday to discuss the price and after they talked, we found out that the price of the house here is a lot lower than we expected if we want to sell now. It’s really hard to sell a house now a days in Michigan because of the bad economy and there are so many houses for sale and many more foreclosed houses. We checked online for recently sold homes in our area so that we are aware of the prices once when we get an offer on this house. Yes we found out that the going price for our house is half the price we expected. It is bad timing to sell now but my husband and I can’t wait years or so for the price to go back up. My husband really can’t wait to live in the Philippines, lol. As his wife whatever his decisions are, I will be abide by him and the Philippines is my country so I would be happy to live there too. I miss my family and every thing there so why wouldn’t I? right? So many times I shared in this blog our hopes of selling this house so now hopefully if we use a real estate agent to sell the house we will have good luck soon to have a buyer.

    It is a bad economy everywhere right now. Florida has been hit hard also. It is a buyers market but not a sellers.
    If you can just put it in your mind that you will go home once the house sells and that is that. Then it is easier to deal with. Also stay thankful that your husband has a job:) Pray and stay optimistic:)

    sorry about the low price..too bad for you..For those who plan to buy a house,good for them.

    I saw Fil-caucasian couples in Cebu, a lot of them settled in the Philippines for good and they have great lives there (belong to mayaman clan) kac dollar ang income,then peso ang expenses. That's great!

    We are planning to retire there as well, in the future.

    Have a great day!
