Trying to sell a home

When Synergy Web Graphics closed on September 8th, I decided to attempt to sell my house and move to the Fox Valley to be closer to my fiance' and aging parents. Because the economy tanked, my house that was valued at $120,000 (with a $103,000 mortgage) is now worth less than I need to break even and just walk away. Furthermore, the decline has left a lot of companies in a "not hiring" mode, which means I am stuck with a mortgage I can't pay on unemployment, in a city that is 2 hours from where my future lies. No house sale, means no wedding and no job means I'll lose the house and owe a ton.
