Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Should I buy short sale homes or foreclosure home for rental properties. I also know of a couple of homes that are banked owned but not on MLS.
You will have to wait for them to go on the MLS. Both should be good investments, they are here in New Jersey especially if they are multi family homes and/or need work.

if we sell an older home, downsize, but $40,0000.00 more and we are seniors,what will that do to our tax situation?
