One of the truisms in real estate is that if the house doesn't sell (or at least get offers) in a month, the price is too high. I re-learned this when we sold our last house, a gorgeous Victorian.


Exactly. There is a buyer for every house assuming it's priced correctly.
Our current retirement home is in a very nice neighborhood 1900 feet from the ocean. It's part of an 18 unit association. Our house is 300 years old but the surrounding homes were built in the 60's.
The ceilings in our house, on the first floor, are so low that I can touch them and I am 5 feet tall. This house would not have been the ideal home for many people but it was for us. I don't think I even know that many people who are 6 feet tall and so we were not concerned about ceiling height. The second floor has regular ceilings.
The house stays very warm in the winter due to the low ceilings, so that's another plus.
