The realtor came LAST Tuesday. He has not gotten back with us yet regarding what we're looking at, number-wise, to sell this house. Once we have those figures, then we'll know what direction to take.
- If he thinks the amount we could sell the house for (minus the realtor fee, minus the amount of money that it would take to get it ready for sale) is considerable, then we'll begin the process of getting things ready for sale.
- If it's not a decent amount of money, then we won't.
If it's the second option then I'm ready to formulate a plan to reduce our debt as fast as possible.
If it's the first option, then we've got some major work to do!
Either way, I'd just like to know.
I mentioned in my last post about "Option Four." Here it is in a nutshell:
Our IDEAL situation would be to find a piece of land to purchase where we could park the camper for the spring/summer/fall. During that time we would sell the house and use the profit to build a 2-car garage with an apartment at the top. We would live in that apartment and build our house as funds become available, thereby building debt-free. It would not be a large house, but we would use plans that would allow additions. That would enable the next owner to easily increase the house size if desired.
IF our ideal were to actually work, we would own property and a house, live within our means, and no longer be in debt. At all.
A girl can dream.
