sell house?

My old realitor called me today...some people from down state want to offer 70K more on my house then I owe, and 30K over what I had it appraised for a few months ago.

I would make some fast cash, pay off all my bills, and I could get another house...what would most of you do? I am getting married in june, and I have no kidos.

CRAZY!

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: sell house?

Your realtor called today with that offer? Call them back tomorrow to ask if it's still good....

Re: sell house?

If you can pay off all your bills before you get married, I'd say its a good deal. Just don't overspend on the new house. Good luck!

Re: sell house?

not to sound like an arse, but what makes your house so special that a realtor would just walk in off the street and offer you that price? it is not weichert is it? they are notorious for that sh!t in NJ

if they are willing to go x amount right off the bat, they will go for more. I sold my house for 45k more than i was asking and didn't have to push anybody hard

Sacto said what he did because of today's date.

Let me threadjack for a moment here. The words realtor and realty are two syllable words, pronounced real-ter and real-tee, respectively. It absolutely drives me nuts when people say real-a-ter and real-a-tee, and I am on a mission to change the world in this regard!

Re: sell house?

Don't forget the capital gains tax on gains that are not invested in the new house.

If thats his only dwelling, then 100% of the profit is tax free... I know it works like that in NC, I thought that was a country wide tax thingy...

Re: sell house?

I'd be all over that. Do it now, why wait 'til you're married?

I'm sure you also considered how hard it is to find a new home if that's the case in your area.
