Once you have done your research and are going with your gut...
Not your neighbor's daughter, not the cheapest commission, not the agent that is a referral agent from 100 miles away, not the agent from USAA or NFCU because they are paying you a $1000.00 rebate that is out of that agent's commission. Go with the agent that is well versed and lives in your community! Also, it never ceases to amaze me how many sellers have never actually seen the listing the agent has entered in the MLS!
Please ask your agent to send the listing to you to review BEFORE they make it active. Why not allow YOU the homeowner check it out? Who knows your home better than you? Ask not, get not!

Your options are limited. Renting your home may be a temporary solution but remember a tenant will most likely not take as good of care of your home as you have and eventually you will have to make repairs , paint etc later before putting on the market. This option only works if you can acquire your next residence with funds you have or you can qualify for a loan. Another possible option is to sell your existing home on contact. I recommend that you discuss any option with a local real estate professional and an attorney before proceeding.

All the best.

I beg to differ. The flood programme for Lake Hiawatha was instituted in 1985 and not 50 years ago.

If you are in the position, do yourself a huge favor and contact a local attorney who specializes in real estate. Unless you have already hammered out an agreement with the lender the short answer is you must bring a certified check to the closing for the shortfall. There is absolutely no possibility that you may wrap up the amount you owe in a new mortgage for any reason under any circumstances.

Unless you are prepared to simply write a check for the shortfall, please go speak with an attorney today.

Hi Mindy,
Parsippany is a great town. The schools are good, the location is idea, and it has a diverse population.
Easy access to NYC, and Routes 10, 46 280 and 80 make it a transportation hub. This is one reason why so many large companies have settled in town.
As for being a good investment> In a word YES.
One of the main reasons being the location and large companies I spoke of.
I get a steady number of inquiries from people and companies who need housing because of relocation into our area.
Hope to see you in town
Murph Plishtin
