Separated- likely getting divorced. House needs work. Should I sell?I and my husband have recently separated and I am living in the family home because he does not want to deal with it. It needs about $5,000 worth of work done - mainly paint, carpet, landscape etc. and the roof will need replaced in a year or so. After the repairs if the house does get sold, I will barely break even at todays prices. I can barely manage to pay for the mortgage and maintenance with my income. Should I :1. do the repairs and try to sell it now or 2. sell it now without the repairs or3. stay in it for 2-3 years until the home prices go up, and then sell it?June 12 2010 - Gainesville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
