Big change on the horizon

We may be putting our house on the market. Our long term goal is to be able to build on about five acres in the Cordesville or Huger area.

Dear Heather,
You can’t even manage a simple flowerbed.

I know this, but I’m getting very good at the lawn part. OK, maybe not very good, but it has seen massive improvement this year. The plan is to find a small house in Moncks Corner to improve over the next year or so, cash out, then build.

We are debating the merits of FSBO or dealing with a realtor. When we moved from MN to SC, two years ago, we FSBO’d on both ends and it worked out well. I think the market may have changed enough that a realtor may be useful, but I’m not sure.

Any thoughts?

Yes, Kathy, if we were in TN, we’d use you.

With all the problems we’ve had with our house..I’m a big proponent for renting right now. LOL.

:-/ Go on, just move! See if I care.

I do care, by the way, and don’t you even try and feed me that “you never come visit me as it is” line darnit!

Awwww… thanks Heather! You know, I can refer you to a local realtor if you’d like. 🙂 I am a tad biased, but I would always recommend using a realtor. You just never know what kind of shi* you have to face and an agent can take some of the heat off you. Good luck!

I honestly think the only thing we “need” the realtor for is marketing and maybe for connections with appraisers/inspectors.

We know the ins and outs of the transactions and how to cover our butts, etc.
