Not sure what I am going to do...

March 12th, 2011 at 04:05 pm

Ex husband told me today that he is moving out of the house. They found something cheaper and closer to where he works. Thanks for the notice! I don't know what I am going to do now. I don't think I can rent it for what he pays. At best I think I could rent it for $450-500/month. That is less than the payment is. I can't afford to not have income from that house. I guess I will go back to like before, just barely keeping my head above water. At least the power bill will be less. I hope I can get it rented. I doubt seriously that I can sell it, but I would love to.

Yesterday was a NSD. I went to day and bought some more water. Food Lion has it on sale for $2.99. I think I have bought enough to get us through to when it will be on sale again.

    Sounds like you need to try to do both...sell it and rent it. Take which ever comes first!! I would try to rent it as close as possible to the break even amount on the mortgage, but not less.

    It might be a good idea to talk to a couple realtors about the housing market in your area and what they house could be listed for.

    In the long run, it will be good that you will not be tied to your ex husband in this way.

    Maybe he would be willing to stay if you dropped the rent to $500?

    CCF you are right...it will be good to not be attached to him in this way. Petunia...He can't afford it without his mother, who has already gotten a place closer to where her daughter lives. It is also closer to his work.
