First step would be evaluate what you want and what you can afford. If what you can afford is realistic then sell since it's a buyers market and roll the equity from you current home into a new home. Interest rates are super low...playing landlord is highly discouraged unless you have extra cash to repair after each renter and don't need the equity from your current home to buy what you want.
I would start with one of our listing plans as low as $99.
Call anytime to discuss or check us out on the web at http://www.exclusivepropertiestexas.com since we have more affordable listing options that any other real estate broker in the metroplex.
I can arrange to meet at the property when convenient if you are not currently working with another agent.
I look forward to speaking with you.

Your options cannot be answered in this forum, because it is too complicated. There are many factors to be considered, and you won't get an insight to all of them here. So --- You need to sit down with a good financial consultant and Realtor and take a look at the options available to you. Then you can make an intelligent decision on what to do to reach your goals.
I happen to be both a Realtor with 32 years experience and a financial consultant. And if there is anything that I don't know the answer to, then I would call a loan officer or a certified financial planner. (I just met with one this morning!)
I have lived in this area for a long time, and bought a house in your zipcode a few years back. I now live a bit North of you and sell houses in your zipcode. I can also show you what is out there for you to purchase, based on what you are qualified for, and that way you can see exactly what your options are before youi put a for sale sign in your yard. I will give you all the professional guidance you need to make a decision, and there is no fee for that service. When you buy another house, my commission is paid by the seller's Broker.
So, ~give me a call, or send me an email, and we'll schedule a time for an appointment when you are off from work. Maybe this weekend?

If you keep your home, you might consider refinancing to a conventional loan to possibly cut some years off your note for the same payment. It would be worth asking a mortgage loan officer what your best options would be. Most mortgage companies have stopped lending below $50,000 so it would be best to ask your current mortgage company or your bank. With your low balance, it may not make enough of a difference but you should check all your options.
If you intend to live in your new home, you would probably be able to obtain FHA financing with a lower down payment. HUD owned homes are offering $100 down with full price FHA offers.
We would be glad to assist you with exploring all your options. I am unable to attach the disclosure about agency but would be glad to email you a copy for your review as well. Please call.

Here's some questions I ask them...
Do you WANT to be a landlord?
Will you be comfortable handling tenant issues?
Will you be okay if a tenant doesn't take as good a care of your home as you did?
Do you need the cash for this home to buy the upgraded home?
There's more to discuss but the answers to these will give you an idea of which way to go.
