To Sell or Not To Sell??

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

I own my home and I pay a mortgage for it.

I have a pretty nice 3 bedroom manufactured home on an acre and a half parcel of land.

I have owned this property that I bought from my grandma since 1996, it is mine and no one else's.

We have been having issues with our neighbors in relation to our driveway. It is a shared driveway and not everyone on the lane agrees as to who has rights to it.

We have gone to court and it was decided that we all have access and that one family (the only original family to sign the easement agreement) has rights to "fix/maintain" the driveway.

Well we just continue to have problem after problem and I am becoming unhappy living where I am living and that just makes me sad because I thought I would live there forever and that it would continue on in my family forever.

I have 3 potential buyers...one that could be very serious and want to move in in about 30 days.

I think I want to sell and find something that my husband, daughter and I like but the thought of leaving my home and being further from my mom scares me. Pretty much my whole adult life I have lived where I live. I have not necessarily liked it the whole time but that is where I have been.

Just not sure what to do right now but I think selling the house and land and moving somewhere else is winning right now.

    I wish I knew of a fix for you .. it is unfortunate that your neighbor is being an a$$ ... if you feel that your happiness is at stake over these issues, maybe it is best you find a place that can be a new start for you all.. Having toxic neighbors can also hurt our efforts at getting healthy.. Best of luck my friend.. pray on it.

    Is moving further away from your mom the only option for you? Sad if it were.....that's such a bad situation to be in wrt the neighbor/driveway situation.....perhaps getting a more stable type of living situation would be the best......

    Wishing you all the best in whatever you do.....
