Find a local realtor. They wuill do the preliminary research on the property to help you find its value & how best to market & set a price. Depending on location it could be residential or commercial. That needs to be determined first. Call if I can help

What is your price range Kelly? What monthly payment can you afford? 15-20% down is most generally required on an owner finance or land contract.

Why not visit with any qualified loan officer(s), see what your budget can handle and check your credit score--your officer may offer great suggestions as to how best improve your credit if needed. FHA loans do require a minimum score of 620 and 3.5% down. Your loan officer can best advise you. ... more

You may be able to go to the Courthouse and see what has recently sold in your area. They usually are really good about helping you out. I am a Realtor and one from your area may do a comparitive market value for you at a minimal charge or out of the goodness of their heart. If you talk to a Realtor go to the most successful one they will be more on top of what is going on. We service our communities in more ways than just listing & selling homes, just ask. Good Luck! ... more

Allen, with new construction, you will get more house for the money! Why? Because builders are down more than 50% in their sales, and they will do anything to get rid of some inventory. I don’t think they will drop their prices, they will change their strategies by providing more incentives for the buyers, or if they do drop their prices, make it up in their financing, or somewhere in the deal. However, as you witness in the market, price is what drives the home sales in this market!

Any transfer of that type will generally be treated as a Fraudulent transfer by the bankruptcy court. Sorry to tell you that and it is sad. This transfer will likely be disallowed.

Keep in mind that most State have the Homestead exemption which would allow your Mom to have $40K of proceeds form the sale of the home to keep to herself that creditors can not touch. Otherwise I am going to say that her home is probably going to be treated as one of her assets.

Can she borrow against the home at all? Probably not...but if she can just borrow all the equity and have her spend it. Heck go to Vegas and put it all on red 13.... I am joking obviously but you get the drift.

Get a good bankruptcy attorney. Every State is different and this was probably not handled correctly but you need professional advise on this one and fast!

I am sorry for her but glad she is heading to a place where her debts will be gone and stress lower! That is a huge thing. Life is not mortgages and Bills...and heck i know it seems like it is. But those are things that happen and not what life should be about.

My heart goes out to you guys.
