Help me make a hard decision - should i sell or should i stay?Background -Bought about 5 years ago - first time buyer - swindled by the realtors - they took advantage of my ignorance about the process. Overpaid by at least 18K then had a score of issues after moving in - heat and air was bad (although it passed an inspection - ha) I wont belabor it but I've had to spend a lot of money (visions of the Money Pit movie).The neighborhood is in decline - established owners dying or moving - houses selling for nothing - renters moving in and not taking care of yards - example only 1 in 4 houses looks presentable - almost 1/2 of the people that lived here when i moved have moved out. And last but not least - the house is on a busy street - no sidewalks - you cant really walk down the street- always having to walk up into a drive way to avoid a car. And I had run in with a neighbor - our dogs got into it - now its uncomfortable to say the least.I've wanted to move for a long time but i knew i would lose money so i was going to bide by time. Plus I wasnt sure where I wanted to move to.So I need help making the decision - should i stay and wait out the market so that i can break even - who knows when that will happen with neighborhood in decline.Or should i go ahead and move - taking a loss but getting the things i want out of house?Is happiness more important than living in a neighborhood you despise?August 04 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
