To preface, we are still waiting on a direct answer from the insurance company, but I figured I would get some additional opinions from people that aren't involved in the deal.

Here's what you need to consider, cutting your losses as is Foreclosure or Short Selling is going to stick with you and affect your capacity to get a loan in the future, and not just for a house. It can affect credit cards, cars and other consumer debt.
If you have the means to buy elsewhere and can break even on rent, find a great local property manager and look into this option. It can be a long term investment if handled well and preserve your credit.
You are in good company buying in 2007. In many markets, values are back and in others they've come close. Time may be on your side if you find the right tenant and property manager. Since you are already a landlord, you know some of the pros & cons and you'll never buy another home you know as well as this one.
If you can sell and write a check you can avoid the downside of foreclosure or short sale and while that would be a hard pill to swallow, in the long range better choice than damaging your credit.

Any lender will need to run the address for USDA before they can get loan approval. If you're under contract on it, then you'll just have to back out of the contract, and get your earnest money back. (most contracts have several ways for buyers to terminate and get EM back -- inspection, loan, appraisal, etc.)

Talk to your REALTOR.

While it's hard to tell without a picture reference, it sounds like the colors might be okay together. If you want them to be tied together more closely, you could put in some decorative tilework or something. That would work well with the terracotta in my opinion. I hope that helped. Good luck selling your mother's house. ... more
