I don’t see anything I disagree with here, and let me add one more. Be open-minded. And be realistic.
You may expect to get back everything you’ve invested in your home, but if the market doesn’t support it, you’re not going to. What you’re going to get is the very best offer you get. Ignore it and you can wait for a very long time…maybe months…to finally settle for what you could have sold it for a whole lot sooner.
