FORT THOMAS, KY (FOX19) - A realtor who vowed to camp out at a house until it sold finally made a sale after nearly a week.

Jim McCord of Sibcy Cline says he expected the home in Fort Thomas to sell in about four hours, but even after he dropped the price to $139,000, that's not how it worked out.

"I came here last Thursday at 2 p.m. and vowed to stay until we got it sold and I did, it was 148 hours total," said McCord. "I'm amazed, when you put a house below market value and it still takes 148 hours to sell it, it tells you that buyers are still scared."

McCord says he won't do it again, although he did enjoy all the visits from family and friends who brought him food and kept him company.
