Five years ago you could sell a condo in a week. Boy have times changed. Most of us are finding that we are "Stuck in this Condo." When the appraisal came back for my neighbors unit, we all hung our heads low! Having a foreclosure in the building for three years, really did us in. So in answer to your question, this chick won't be upgrading anytime soon.
So if you find yourself stuck in your place do to falling prices, make the best of it!! I am finding more and more people are doing small upgrades and getting organized to make their space more tolerable.
Here are a few examples of things you can do:
1. Paint a room. Bring some color to your life. An average gallon of paint costs $35
2. Organize a closet. No better time to purge
3. Buy some new furniture
4. Explore your neighborhood
5. Fall in love with your place all over again
Bringing new life to your place, will bring new life in your heart!!
