Contact Bert Wunderlich at Nova Homes 480 249-1924 Or you can look for a hard money lender, but
the rate is really high unless it's a short term loan (7-15 days).

Although everyone is telling you to go for a south or west facing backyard for the most winter sun, I would caution you that even in the winter months of November through April, the sun in Ocotillo will be very warm at times during the day, especially with no pool.

For example, last November the highest temperature reported was 88, but the temperature was over 80 degrees 13 days. December through February are much cooler, and should not be an issue. In March of 2013, it reached over 80 degrees 19 times, with a high of 91. By April, the temperature was over 80 degrees on all but 4 days, and reached over 90 degrees 7 days. The high was 99 degrees on April 29th and 30th.

Keep in mind the temperatures are usually the hottest between 2-4pm, and in November the sun will rise around 6:45am, and set around 5:30pm. By the end of April, the sun will rise at 5:40am and not set until after 7:00pm.

I wouldn't be too concerned with the cost of heating your home, as that bill will be practically nothing even in the winter. Most times the heat will probably not even be turned on.

Trust me when I say you will get plenty of sun no matter what direction your backyard is facing. You just need to decide whether you want morning sun (east facing), evening sun (west facing), or all-day sun (South or North facing). North facing backyards will get less sun than south because as the sun moves East to West, it is typically in the southern sky.

I have seen where the EQUITY lender pulled their LIEN before foreclosure,
then they went after the Homeowner for the full amount.
YES, they can do that.
If the LIEN was still part of the Foreclosure, then it should have been satisfied before the Closing.
You will find out when they contact you.
Maybe you should contact a Florida Attorney; it might be worth a few hundred dollars.

If the property is only worth 78k and you have already lost 2 rentals I would suggest you (and I assume your state would allow this) file for bankruptcy and in Georgia and other states you can have property appraised and if it only appraises for 78k or less they would drop the 2nd but you would be responsible for making the note for the next 5 years. I'm not telling you to file for bankruptcy but it's another choice you have in case other things don't work out. Remember your credit is already shot. ... more

Yes, Please contact a real estate attorney, the laws do differ from State to State. My understanding is that if the lien is not used to purchase the property, the Bank can come after you. I had a phone call recently from a friend of a client of ours - a judgement had been placed against them because they walked away from a home in AZ, with a second lien attached that was not used to purchase the home, the second lien holder went after them and through the court system, placed a judgement against them. I gave them the name of an attorney, the Attorney they contacted negotiated with the lien holder to accept less. It was not only a lien against the home that was foreclosed on, but a debt that followed them. It would absolutely benefit you to contact an attorney who specializes in distress property to gather facts and know your legal rights and options. ... more

Gilbert, AZ
Have you made contact with a lawyer or accountant on this matter yet? I've got contacts who will not charge you to talk about this matter.If you do a short sale you will be getting a 1099 from the bank at the end of the year which may or may not be taxed as income. The deficiency might be forgiven, or they might ask for a non-secured promisory note.

If you allow the bank to foreclose and you are not protected by the statute they might come after you for the deficiency.

I've helped others in situations like this prior, no situation is the same however but we may be able to help.

We are a property management company and manage hundreds of homes in the East Valley and may be able to help you if you contact us quickly.

It's almost 2 years since this question was asked. Although the answer may be the same, with the changes in loan-to-value on the reverse mortgages, a 66 year old may not be able to access enough equity. What might be better would be to find out how much you can borrow against the new purchase, use the proceeds of your sale to put towards equity, and then take out a purchase reverse mortgage. If anyone thinks that they can take out a reverse mortgage, then keep the home as an investment property and live in the cheaper one, they can forget about it. Once you are not living in the home for a year, the reverse mortgage has to be paid back. There are lots of issues here, only one of which is the fact that the original poster did not explain very well what she has in mind. ... more
