Great news!! After just 9 days on the market, our house is sold! I never, ever thought it would sell so fast and am really sad to see it go but so relieved to be able to get on with our new life in Boston.
Speaking of Boston, we only have two months of temporary corporate housing so the search for a new home is in full swing. We've already seen about 10 houses and spent all day yesterday doing the open house thing. Let me just tell you...it is downright depressing what $600K gets you in this market.
Would you believe THIS was one of the best homes we saw for $598K??? It's 1,800 sq ft (including the attic) and is 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths.
And before you assume (as I did) that a house in need of so many updates surely can't go for the full $600K, our realtor informed us that this house would most likely receive multiple offers and end up going for OVER asking price. The traffic we saw at the open house would certainly seem to support that.
*sigh*...so there you have it. Lots more searching to be done I'm sure. I'll keep you posted on the highlights.
