Why yes, I am cranky today.

What a crap day.

So, as it turns out, the people who wanted to rent our house think it may be too small, after all. Goodbye, covered mortgage. Goodbye, extra cash. I have to confess, the real estate market is depressing me. When we bought our house four years ago, we were under the impression that when we eventually sold it, we'd make a nice sum of money. When we met our real estate lady, Jenn, for the first time, we had high hopes. We realized that there were a lot of houses for sale, and that it was a buyer's market, but she thought we could get a good 35k over what we bought it for.

Awesome, we said.

And then the house sat. The funny thing is, it's getting plenty of showings...just no offers. So we dropped the price 5k. Still nothing. Three months later, I'm getting really discouraged. Before we put the damn thing on the market, the AC went out. We installed a brand new HVAC system ($7k) and did a no interest for six months plan because we figured we'd be able to pay it off with the money we got for selling the house.

Ha.More disgruntled talk from a home seller )
