Is anyone (other than realtors) making money selling houses yet?
My wife and I just sold our house that we have lived in for ~8 years. We were told the bubble had popped in this area before we bought - although in this area it wasn't much of a bubble as the housing demand was not great here at that time. Over those years we spent ~$30k on improvements to our house. Now, we accepted an offer for $4.5k less than what we bought at. This was the only offer we had in over 5 months on the market.
Is anyone selling for more than they paid? Granted, by having been here for almost 8 years we have paid enough into the house that what we still owe is quite a bit less than what we are selling at, which helps to ease the pain. However by the time we pay all the fees we will probably be lucky to come away with gas money to get to our next place.
