Bought a new house
Bought a new house
Scott Saunders, 42, lives in Jacksonville, Fla.
Name: Scott Saunders
My recession ended: October 2009
Location: Jacksonville, Fla.

We sold our house, which is in one of Jacksonville's more preferred neighborhoods, last fall after having it on the market for a year.

We didn't get the premium we could have for it during the real estate market heyday, but we still walked away with some equity because we bought it underpriced ten years ago.

We capitalized on the buyer's market and built a new home and are about to move in.

NEXT: Hired employees
