Hi. Certainly understand your concern and no single property is perfect. What is the demand for rentals in the area and specifically in that building? Hope this helps.

Cash for Keys is a real program. My question to you, though, is why is there an eviction? Has your home already been sold at foreclosure? Once the house is sold on the courthouse steps at the foreclosure sale, you no longer own the home. Most Cash for Keys programs stipulate that you leave the home prior to the foreclosure sale. If you have missed the agreed upon date to move, the Bank may not be so willing to help you out. An eviction procedure costs the Bank additional funds. Regardless, the Bank would have sent you reams of paperwork regarding your foreclosure. Read it very carefully! Contact the Bank immediately to see where you stand and if you can move without going through the eviction. An eviction will also go on your credit report, in addition to the foreclosure, making finding rental property all that more difficult. Best of luck to you; I wish you well. ... more

Really there are pockets of good schools all over our region in both North & South Carolina. My children went to schools in South Charlotte but there are great schools in all the surrounding communities as well. Go to as stated before and when you are ready visit the schools before making an offer on a home.
Also there are lots of great private school options as well.
As Realtors we are bound by the Federal Fair housing act and can't give you a specific recommendation but we can help you with websites for the school systems and resources to help you make the best decision for your family.

I asked my preferred lender this question on Monday, actually, and she explained that it is based on the social security number. It has nothing to do with your marital status (or lack thereof). Each of you would need to qualify on your own for the mortgage to have 4 each. If you had a mortgage jointly, that would count as one for each of you. So moving forward, you could get a mortgage on your own (up to 4), with your partner (up to 4 each), or your partner could get separate mortgages (up to 4).

Remember that the limit of 4 DOES include any primary residence. They don't distinguish between a home you live in and an investment property. Four is four.

I hope this helps you. As with any mortgage question, it is important to talk to a lender you trust before making any decisions. I have several I work with who understand the laws and keep abreast of the changes, if you need a referral. Feel free to contact me.
