My guess is that he is waiting to be able to borrow more against it before selling.

Isn't he a cop? WHY on earth would he think he belonged in an 867,000 house? His neighbors must be laughing their a$$es off. Probably not as hard as the buyers who see his mccrapshack on the internet.

WHAT FOR?

Why is it that I see your nonsense written in EVERY forum on this site. Why are YOUR opinions the only ones that matter? You get to laugh at everyone, but when the table are turned ... - whhaaa!!! I'm flagging you! Look the truth hurts - if you home is so great why is it still for sale?

What's the matter? They would flag the thread? In case you missed it I OWN a triplex which generates income WITH my family living in one of the 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath units. I know its not quite the "hole" you live in but its MY "hole" nonetheless. P.S. its in Cos Cob, CT Look it up.

Good for you. I own a rental property in Brooklyn that generates income. I feel bad for you. I would NEVER want to live in the same house as my tenants do. That completely degrades the quality of life.

So, go ahead and call me a slumlord. I don't care. I am making money in both rent and appreciation. Do I fix anything in the other house? Heck no. I'm dumping the place in the near future.

Oh come Alpine, you do mention all the time that it's for sale at $867K, you had it on the market for a year, and best offer was $700K (which I bet might be less than you paid), after a year of being on the market.

I always found it funny that you blame the bubble bloggers 'scaring everyone' for your misfortune and don't look inward to find the true cause of your misery.

I find it even funnier that you believe the real 'market value' for your house to be $867K (by what metric you base this I don't know), yet, you've received but a few offers and all below $700K. I think the 'market' was trying to tell you something, but you were not listening.

In essence... you believe as long as you hold on to that house, you're worth $867K, the moment you sell for less, you will be worth less, and you're not ready to accept that.

But, just bare in mind, we all see your anger in countless posts, you do have a resentment to anyone who has not bought a house. Treating them like morons or sub-human scum is not going to fix your current predicament.

As for my rental "hole" ... my HOME has afforded my family wonderful luxuries. My husband and I traveled extensively before we had children, paid for our own wedding (320 pp) and we have NO debt. My son has his first year and a half of college banked... he's 2.

"My son has his first year and a half of college banked... he's 2."

Um, you do know that tuition will be much higher 16 years from now? Right? You won't be paying today's tuition prices, so you have pratically nothing banked.

"yet, you've received but a few offers and all below $700K. I think the 'market' was trying to tell you something, but you were not listening."

I only recieved one offer for $700k, and I will not let a single offer dictate the value. Also, there are absoilutely no comps to support such a low offer. Based on comps, the absolute lowest offer one can make would be $810,000.

"Why do you want to "dump" a place that's bringing in income? Why don't you fix it up a little and be one of the good guys?"

Well, let's see, do I want to put in a new roof, new wod floors, new electrical wiring, a new bathroom, a new kitchen....?

And the house is generating income. It's easy to since there is no mortgage and the taxes are only $4,500 a year.

No S$!% tuition will be higher! Why do you think we've STARTED saving? Oh, I get it, you're just made because they won't flag this thread. Or is it that you were wrong and I'm not a renter who can crawl back into my "hole?"

Don't hate me because I've made sound financial decisions. Okay pookie?

I think you do want to put in a new roof, I'm not sure about the floors, fix the electrical. I'd do the bath and kitchen when you have a chance to raise the rent. The other stuff, as you already know, is important. You don't need to do everything at once.

To say that you have a year and a half tuion saved up for a child who is 2 makes no sense. Unless your child is some absolute genious who is going to start college at the age of 7, you have barely anything saved up. Last year, tuition rose 6.5%

Alpine:

You only received one offer?

Then what was all this vehement toxic waste you were spewing in this thread:
http://www.zillow.com/forum/site/ViewThread.htm?tid=5799

Repeatedly you mentioned lowball buyers -- that's plural. You even said things like 'not one of them... blah blah blah'...

There's two things to think about here:
1) You possibly got only one offer in the whole year that house was listed -- that's funny
2) There is probably very little that comes out of your mouth that is the truth, and we just found you changing your stories around a bit.

it's best to remember the details of the stories that you make up so you don't get caught in a contradiction.
