Based on my knowledge of your area, my estimate of your home's current market value is:

Low of $310,000 to a High of $330,000


Of course, that's assuming that it's in good shape, which it isn't. Still, it's higher than I thought.

Wow.

One caveat: My next door neighbors have been trying to sell their house for the better part of a year now, and they haven't gotten any offers.

I think the neighborhood's so overinflated no one can afford to live here anymore. Then again, Lyndale is just far enough away that maybe there's a shift.

bubble could go any day now. and with peak oil upon us or coming soon, I'd hold on to my house if I could...unless you can get those overinflated prices right away and cash out, I wouldn't put it on the market for very long... not that I'm a real estate expert, I'm just sayin' doom n' gloom is all

It's a bit of a tightrope act. On one hand, I need to do a certain amount of work to get it into some form of curb appeal. OTOH, if I could do a minimal amount of work and cash out soonish, the equity is a nice little siren call. That would make a hell of a down payment on a new place somewhere else.

I found a house near James going for almost 100K more than what he bought his for. With a couple appliance updates, he could easily get that much. It is tempting, but we both need jobs in San Diego (and I'd need a subletter) to make it happen. =)

yep. and if I saw an approved foudation with bolts ready to go, I would imagine everything from an enclosed arboretum to an open pagoda. It would be a plus that I could customize my house. Maybe more weirdos out there would have the same excitement. put in a sign!!!

Patience, young paduwan. You just want me to move so that when I build my secret lair I will invite you over for the Evil Hot Tub parties.

I shall have a hot tub/spa at some point. How it's heated will probably be a mystery-- I think geothermal would be intensely cool, but unlikely. Won't be electric.

This area, specifically the area on Lyndale is very popular with yuppie/gay couples with lots of extra income that want a house near a trendy area. You are near three parks. You are 10 blocks from the lakes and the Rose Garden. Yup. The house needs work. And a couple with disposable i ncome would happily dump money and effort into it. Just saying. You could probably get a decent amount for it. I'd miss you living a few doors down but you seem to have decided the house is a burden and it's best to lift that burden from yourself. The money fromt he sale could probably pay off any debts and be a healthy payment on a smaller place in St. Paul or farther from the cities.
