So basically no one with a house like mine in our neighborhood will be able to sell their house to anyone needing a loan until someone comes along and pays cash for a house to set the market price?

Makes for interesting real estate liquidity issues, doesn't it?

If you are rural enough and it's a primary home, (ours wasn't,) future buyers might be able to go USDA. Or something like that. Perhaps Dave can chime in since he had mentioned that as a possibility when I was discussing the mortgage problems we had. Apparently they are less tough on comps.
