Home Selling: Update

It has been a few weeks since I made my big announcement about moving out of my house after I graduate from college. As everyone, everywhere, knows the market has sort of taken a dip since 2008 when I bought my house.

Unfortunately, Colorado has also fallen victim to that same dip in the market. At this point we are not able to sell the house for what we put in to it, we have another plan to redo a few things and have my parents take over the house as a rental property until the market swings up enough for us to sell


It's a little disappointing, but I won't have to go crazy nuts cleaning all the time. In the meantime I've found a really fun website where I can look at houses in different areas and even get neighborhood specific, which is nice when I live far away. It's called Redfin. It's pretty neat!

I've decided I want to find something that is at least:
  • three bedroom
  • two bathroom
  • 1200+ sq ft
  • has an enclosed attached garage
  • a fixer upper
I'm looking at foreclosures because they are a much better deal for teachers, and also I love being able to blog about renovations. I'm excited! Only 5 more months!

Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

  1. That's a bummer about your house, but the market will pick up eventually. Looking for a new house is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to see what you find!

  2. I'm so excited to see the house that you will find! Hopefully the market goes back up (after you buy, of course) because you made your house look so great!! :)

  3. Re you going for the manufactured home or traditionally built home? My husband and I will be first time homebuyers soon and we were thinking about a manufactured home like a double wide. But we want to buy our own land so we can eventually build our dream home on it further down the road.
