Yep, think I have had enough, Sad Had my estate sale and they robbed me, trying to sell my tractor grrr.., and ive been informed that you can only get a loan for a house based on its appraisal ( so im burried). Thinking about when the tractor sells 9,500. car1,200. get a cheap travel trailer and meet yall in Quartzsite. When the mortgage company calls Ill let them " im out of town". Im really frustrated.
Sorry to hear the spit hit the fan. 
We're down in Q waiting to meet you. You can hang in Ehernberg free of fees or enforcement till RTR and then back to E-berg till spring and live cheap while you figure out your next move.
Thanks for the input, I really cant wait to meet the peaple on this forum. I finaly feel like im not the only one who sees this world as I do.
Yeah, it really sux when it feels like the world is rotating in reverse.
Damn, lady, I can feel your frustration. Hope you catch a break ASAP!
Me tooo, I will , the posatives we read on this forum give more support to the transitions being made. On this note there are lessons to be had. So anyone looking to have an estste sale should never leave stay right by the register. Note also Not all realestste peaple know everthing , so if you now nothing it can get quite comical.
Had an estate sale lined up when my dad passed away, my mom and I went back to FL on a tight timeframe to get it done... they completely flaked at the last minute saying "well, we don't really think we'll make enough". We lost our asses selling it all to a broker, totally sucked.
Best thing to do is to put into storage ("IF" it's an emergency) and if not then start selling a little at a time on Craig's list, Ebay, Amazon or any other place where you can list your "stuff".

I have been shrinking down ok (and not getting robbed in the process).

T.I.M.
Hard to store and sell if you live across country.
I've bought nice storage units that began that way and I ended up making the cash.
Being in the selling game one knows where to find his buyers.

It sure does suck, especially the part where they suddenly discover it isn't worth their time.

When my mom passed, I asked a long time family friend, and auctioneer to stop by the house. The house was a beautiful brick two story three bedroom, with a lot of nice, everyday furnishings. Nothing antique, or high end. OTOH, no mattresses' on the floor, or shelves made of boards and milk crates. Just typical, clean, middle class America. After a few minutes of looking, he told me that he was sorry, but there simply wasn't enough value to hold an auction, and he couldn't bring himself to agree to one, and end up in the awkward position of having to ask for a few hundred bucks to cover the loss. He appraised the entire contents at no more than $1500. I was amazed, and question another auctioneer in the remote area I live in. This one stated that due to the more rural, and poorer, clientele where I live, the average contents of a three bedroom home bring roughly $900.
