I've done plenty of work with reverse mortgages and understand the time constraint you're under. The property can be refinanced, thus paying off the existing reverse mortgage, and avoiding having to sell the home. The problem you will run into with many lenders is that there is typically a 6 month seasoning requirement prior to refinance eligibility. Fortunately, I work with a few banks who do not have this restriction in there guidelines which would allow you to fix this problem immediately.

If you'd like to discuss your scenario in greater depth we can weigh-out all feasible options so you can best determine which route makes most sense from a financial standpoint; maybe selling the home is your best bet, but it's important to have all cards on the table. I may be reached directly at (201) 957-6768 or via email; whichever is easiest.

It depends on your debt and the price of the home. Have a mortgage broker qualify you.

Jeffrey Langer answered:
In today's market where a house priced properly will sell quickly, it is fair to ask why is a house priced low. More often than not, when a house is priced "too good to be true" it most likely has some serious issue that would preclude a normal purchaser who needs a mortgage to buy it. Other reasons might be that the property is a short sale that requires the owner's mortgage holder to accept much less than what is owed on the property, In many of those instances, the listing price WAS NOT approved by the mortgage holder and there would be a counter offer from the bank which is appreciably higher than the contract price. ... more

Investment is all about current income, value retention & profit and depends on how long the investor is looking to hold the investment. For an income investor an existing home that is in average to good condition will yield better return on investment as most likely the purchase price will be substantially lower than a newly build home while rents being approximately the same. For a short term flip investor buying an existing home would also make more sense as the purchase price will again be substantially below the new home and the if the investor is a builder/contractor or partnered with one they can renovate the existing home and sell it at a greater profit than purchasing a new home.
Each investor buyer should sit down and do the math before making any investment.

Hi Jean

There are many investors around who will invest in Queens, Brookly etc.

Get in touch with your local Chamber of Commerce, advertise in your local community news
Paper or troll the web for investors in the area of choice.

But be sure you have a solid business plan, and that the investor can make money.
Generally, an investor is looking for a 100% return.

Good luck.
