My story is kind of different.
We bought our first home in Atlanta. It was a super cute townhouse and I loved it!
We were so excited when we bought this house. My husband and I even got engaged in it!
After about a year living there, things started to change. I became very unhappy. The commute was killing me (I worked over an hour each way). I never saw my friends or family and I was newly married. We had a beautiful house and could never have anyone over because the parking in our neighborhood was so strict. After much debate, we finally decided to put our house on the market. Within a year of buying in, our agent informed us of the drop in the market. There was no way we could sell. Lots of other people were in the same situation. (Read about it on one of my other favorite blogs here!)
