You can ask a local Realtor to work for you. A Buyer's agent is most likely going to be compensated by the seller, so you can have professional representation with no cost to you. I have helped many investors, first time home buyers, etc. buy a home and they never had to pay me. I am from SWFL, and am a local Realtor with 16 years of previous mortgage experience, so I can pretty much cover all aspects of buying a home.

You have lots of decisions you need to make. Alot of it determined if these expenses are paid through your escrow of not. If these expenses are escrowed than by stopping payments you are stopping every thing!

If you can separate the items are only worried by credit reporting then the priority of your expenses would be mortgage payment. If you complete a short sale and have a current loan it may not effect your credit.

If you do not pay the insurance the mortgage company would most likely force place the insurance to insured they are covered but it will not be the best coverage for you and will be 3 times as expensive.

Taxes take a longer time to hit your credit. However, you have to look at your state statuates to best understand how this is handled. Usually after 1-3 years deliquent the banks will pay to protect the asset. The issue is that taxes is the primary lien.

Hope this helps

Public and private real estate investors are cognizant of overbuilding of the 1980s and the subsequent effects upon the real estate industry in the early 1990s. Supply of real estate exceeded demand, causing vacancy rates to rise, rents to fall and cap rates to increase, ultimately leading to decreasing property values. Investors want to know where the real estate market is heading, which submarket is hot, which submarket is losing market share, and where new supply will show up over the next five years. Basically, investors want to know what the future risks to an investment are. Currenty, in Brevard County, FL, one finds an excess of supply and a shortage of demand. Hence, we remain in a buyer's market. This will continue until demand catches up with supply. ... more
