Hey Adrienne and David,
Some friends of ours in cohousing were trying to sell for months and then listed their condo for rent on Craig's List. Within the first day they had 4 qualified renters with cash in hand.
It seems like people aren't willing to buy right now, but may be willing to rent. I hope this isn't just a co-housing phenomenon. So, has your father/father-in-law considered this avenue???
PS I like to get your updates and hope you find things in your new location each day that bring you joy!
