House isn't selling, will not be able to afford house much longer. Hello,We currently own a home in Fairfield, Vermont and our having some troubles getting people to put in offers. Last October, I got recruited for a job in Arkansas, they hired a relocation company to help us with the moving process. A week after I accepted the position, they found a realtor for us and the house was put on the market. We were told that they would pay for our rent in Arkansas until our house sold in Vermont. Our house was listed for $180,000. This price was the suggested listing price by two realtors. We did not have a lot of offers right away since no one buys houses in the winter in Vermont. Around December, I think, we lowered the price to $175,000. We had a lot of showing in spring and summer, with one offer. The offer fell through a month before closing. Our house is listed VERY competitively, which is why we are not sure why its not selling. Houses around us are selling for the same or more than what ours is listed at. We get so-so feedback. The major complaints we get is that there is no garage/basement and that it is "too far" out.Now here comes our problem, the relocation company is no longer paying our rent, so we are paying our mortgage and our rent. We are getting VERY frustrated at this point. We are trying everything to sell it. We are trying to rent it out to make by until we sell it but people are hesitant to rent due to it being on the market while they live there. We are getting to the point if nothing changes, we will have to do a short sale. We are not behind on payments, and we are not upside down. We owe 159,000 on the house and want to sell it for 170,000 so we will have enough to pay the realtors commission of 6%. I know if we could sell it for what we owe, but since being in another state we need to have a realtor.Does ANYONE have any advice for us? Are there any alternatives to a short sale??our house is 74 mitchell road, east fairfield, VTThanks!September 29 2013 - Fairfield0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
