Oh, Neg, I feel for your situation. Divorce is always painful and doubly hard when there are children involved (been there).

I think you have described a couple of different issues here. It might be most helpful for you to sort those things out:
1. Your house is upside down in value.
2. You aren't sure if you and your husband still own the property together.
3. Your ex is making all of this more difficult by confusing your children.

The last one has to be the worst. It's almost impossible to explain difficult things to children anyway, and this issue is doubly painful since you lived there as a family.

You have alot to sort out, but I would start by identifying what's really going on and deciding what things are worth fighting for and what battles you can't win. I wonder if your ex would EVER be willing to back off no matter HOW much evidence you give him to support your claim.

As for being upside down, unless you have a legitimate financial hardship, chances are the bank might not approve a short sale and/ or may hold you liable for any amount of money you're short, meaning the amount you owe the bank vs. how much the house would sell for. Make sense?

Good luck to you. I'd still consult an attorney, especially one who specializes in short sales!!!

Hi Michael,

This home is not on the market as an MLS listing. Looking at the home I would estimate market value at $130 to $145. There are a number of homes like this one on the market in that price range. ... more

Hi, Catonara712!
The listing has been expired since February 2011. Hard to tell if it's vacant without it being active on the market. If you'd like more info, the best way would be to have an agent make some calls on your behalf.

Good luck!!

Jill, have your agent set up an auto email for the properties you are looking for. If you need a Realtor, I would be glad to help.

Leah,

The house disappeared from active status for six days because it went to pending status. For some reason the sale fell through and now it's back on the market. It's currently listed for $249,900. The city of Bloomington has the tax market value at $392,400. ... more

I have talked to the listing agent and shown the home several times, unfortunately he has several offers in at this time and is waiting for the bank to approve one of them. I have not checked with him lately for an update but could check again if you would like me to see the latest on it ... more

It was originally scheduled to be a condo building and as such it's value was in the land and not the house on it. It appears that this development was put on hold in late 2005...

Shawn,

You may want to delete this question since it is a duplicate and you will get answers in both of them - meaning you will have to keep track of two questions to get the same information.

Shawn,

The only way to know is to have your agent track down the information for you or to get a membership to RealtyTrac. Good Luck.
