I have people calling me about houses for sale and I have no house for sale.

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?
Your best bet is to speak to your accountant as they are the only ones qualified to give tax advice.

What is a Home Path Renovation Mortgage Financing?
I think it's an awesome deal. I wouldn't mind buying a house for cheaper and then being able to fix it up. It's so rewarding to me to work on projects and make things look nicer.
