    Maybe if I was carrying 2 mobile home payments it would have been more palatable. Haha

    I mean this was a year ago but my place sat on the market with pretty minimal interest for a lot longer than I would have preferred in this range.

    A year ago was a complete different story compared to now. People had no idea what to expect so most buyers werent doing anything, fuck even now i dont know what to expect with all this variant talk but the interest rates are at an all time low lol

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    were they a developer or a ponzy scheme?
    All I know is their office staff is a least a 7 for dude and 8 for a chick. That was highest concentration of hot people in an office environment.

    Although that was during the hay days of 2007.

    What's it like for (student) gay dudes? Like, do you think they wanted to plow the gym teacher? I remember having a younger gym teacher that was a pretty good looking guy who was in good shape. Probably equivalent hotness to the Spanish teacher and I definitely wanted her to commit rape all over me.
    So, were we in Rugby scrums with gay dudes who were wishing Mr. Stetson would demand his dick got sucked after school?
    I bet we were.

    Mine sat for the better part of a year in around the same area. Two mortgages wasn't the worst part... checking on the place, shovelling sidewalks and mowing lawns at 2 houses was the worst. And the squatter... lol

    Did I miss a squatter thread?

    I managed to convince my brother to live in my other place for most of the time it sat which was convenient.

    Nothing worthy of a thread. Looked like someone stayed in there a day or two, dyed their hair black, and subsisted on Asian snacks and bagged salad. Luckily no damage and they moved on pretty quick... Had us on edge for a few days. Realtor doesn't think it was any rogue realtor or related to any showings, but I'm skeptical since there weren't any signs of forced entry.

    Ya I can't even expect to breakeven. I will be lucky to take a 15% loss on it.

    Depending where the asbestos is, it may need to be remediated anyway before the house can be moved.

    I've been told that if you sell the house to movers for $1 (assuming original condition), you're doing alright because of demo savings. We sold ours to the movers for $45k, but it was substantially renovated right before we bought it

    It helps if you intend to save the foundation... the movers did an amazing job of separating the house from foundation.
    Which movers buy houses? I'd be happy if they took mine for $1. Hell, I'd even pay half of what it costs to demolish it.

    Wade's bought ours, I believe McCanns buys as well.
    I imagine it would be way more complex with a split level though, if they can even do it. They chopped an attached garage off mine and moved it in two pieces, so I suppose anything is possible.

    Where do these go? Spare house at a farm? Are people pouring new basements for them, or just slapping them down on a slab?

    And the realtor fees, legal fees and potential penalties on a mortgage. Good times

    A while back I figured I was burning $50k to move, bare minimum, between painting, cleaning, staging, movers and realtor. Some folks move every few years.

    Yeah I figure I will lose 10% selling this year. Gf and I agreed wherever we buy needs to be good for ~20 years for us.
