After 7 months on market we only got $180k offer, everyone else said it was too small. We also cant compete with forclosures/shortsales. We have 2nd child on way and current bdrms are smaller (plus will have a boy and a girl). If not for the space we'd stay here another 5 years easy. We can add new bdrm for $28k and make house work for us for forseeable future, but is it big mistake to put money into this place? We also cant see spending 40-50k (to cover mortgage/realtor fee) just to sell, then drop another 40k towards new place (that's major chunk of savings). We're financially sounds and have no risk of losing the place so short sale is not option, plus we'd hate to take the credit hit. So, what is best option? Would we recoup cost of addition going from 2 bdrm to 3bdrm. Hope is to enjoy the house until the market improves. But it will only work for us with more space.<br \><br \>12 replies Tue, 27 Jul 2010 18:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/is-an-addition-a-mistake/359719/ 2010-07-27T18:01:00Z Look at this home: It is smaller than 24 teakwood dr, within same vicinity. 1 Smokey Dr Johnston? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Look-at-this-home-It-is-smaller-than-24-teakwood-dr-within-same-vicinity-1-Smokey-Dr-Johnston/357102/ Why did this property go up by 10% when it is smaller than mine and within the same vicinity.&nbsp; In addition, it recently sold for $300K<br \><br \>1 reply Fri, 09 Jul 2010 13:03:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Look-at-this-home-It-is-smaller-than-24-teakwood-dr-within-same-vicinity-1-Smokey-Dr-Johnston/357102/ 2010-07-09T13:03:00Z Why did the home values in my area just drop approx 10% in, when no sales have been recorded(30day)? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-did-the-home-values-in-my-area-just-drop-approx-10-in-when-no-sales-have-been-recorded-30day/357099/ Why did my property drop while the town increased in total.&nbsp; No sales posted close to me.<br \><br \>2 replies Fri, 09 Jul 2010 12:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-did-the-home-values-in-my-area-just-drop-approx-10-in-when-no-sales-have-been-recorded-30day/357099/ 2010-07-09T12:44:00Z How do you calculate insurance and taxes? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-you-calculate-insurance-and-taxes/287259/ 3 replies Sun, 11 Oct 2009 01:37:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-you-calculate-insurance-and-taxes/287259/ 2009-10-11T01:37:00Z Why did the value drop on this house. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-did-the-value-drop-on-this-house/308554/ 2 replies Wed, 23 Dec 2009 01:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-did-the-value-drop-on-this-house/308554/ 2009-12-23T01:24:00Z why is the arial map sooooo wrong??? this is an amazing place in jerusalem on the beachfront http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/why-is-the-arial-map-sooooo-wrong-this-is-an-amazing-place-in-jerusalem-on-the-beachfront/344809/ &nbsp;and its now listed for 1.25 million<br \><br \>1 reply Sat, 17 Apr 2010 00:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/why-is-the-arial-map-sooooo-wrong-this-is-an-amazing-place-in-jerusalem-on-the-beachfront/344809/ 2010-04-17T00:25:00Z This place has loud music every night in summer...from Georges of Galilee any chance of getting them http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/This-place-has-loud-music-every-night-in-summer-from-Georges-of-Galilee-any-chance-of-getting-them/345483/ its very disconcerting.<br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 19 Apr 2010 12:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/This-place-has-loud-music-every-night-in-summer-from-Georges-of-Galilee-any-chance-of-getting-them/345483/ 2010-04-19T12:30:00Z who is the listing agent for this property? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/who-is-the-listing-agent-for-this-property/240513/ 2 replies Fri, 29 May 2009 16:58:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/who-is-the-listing-agent-for-this-property/240513/ 2009-05-29T16:58:00Z
