Realty Executives brokers and agents do not give legal,
financial or tax advise. Please consult these professionals
before, during and after buying or selling any property.

Hello Devine, you would start by talking to a LENDER (Mortgage Broker or Mortgage Banker) and explain your current situation. You may also want to talk to an accountant and financial planner as you have a unique situation.

If you would like more information about the current real estate market, a daily list of homes that match your buying criteria and some LENDER recommendations, feel free to contact me

I hope this helps.
