I just got an e-mail from my new real estate agent. I got an offer on my house. I don't know how much it will be for or if we will accept it, but at least there is an offer. To make a long story short, I listed my house in November with a real estate agent who did nothing, not even bring potential buyers. After six months he begged me to sign another contract with him and when I refused he got really mad. I signed with another agent and in one week we already have an offer.
DH couldn't keep the job he had in CA because he was alone and got sick with depresion, in part because the house wasn't selling and we couldn't move back with him. I don't blame the agent for not selling the house, because it is a bad market, but I blame him for not trying to sell.
I will let you know what happens tonight when we get the offer.
