Think hard before selling real estate at a loss

Overcoming 'personal issues' may be better financial move

DEAR BENNY: We own two houses, both of which have been on the market for approximately two years. One is our primary home, and one is a second home on the lake. Due to personal issues, we want to sell. Should we take a loss and sell, or hang tight? –Joyce

DEAR JOYCE: If you really must sell for personal reasons, then why ask the question? Get the best possible price that you can.
