Strange thing is it depends which side of Ashland ave the home is on. In one section, the values are actually beginning to rise. On the other side, they are still low. The area was hit hard .
As a whole, the Real estate market is on the rise....

Your car is underwater too; you planning on selling it too?

Homeowners are not used to this situation:
But the situation needs a better perspective;
Could you RENT a comparable place for what you are currently paying?

The damage and expenses of a Shortsale or Foreclosure would far exceed your loss on "paying for a dead horse". In four years, you should be able to re-coup.

This, added to the fact that you have gotten it fixed up like you like it: right?

Good luck and may God bless

Also you are going to need to go somewhere else. Do it soon similar pulls of your score within a 30 day period is not supposed to effect your score anymore than one pull. This is designed to allow you to compare rates. Best of luck, ... more

Through non-mainstream financing (aka portfolio or private lending) what Steve said would be possible but otherwise what Alan and I have said are how you'd need to qualify to obtain a standard Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac conventional or FHA insured loan.

Best of luck Jjlj4

P.S. Anyone reading this who wants to see the actual guidelines, you can go to Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac's website and pull up the "selling guide", this is what all lenders who sell conventional loans use. FHA's version is the HUD 4155 handbook.

I am not aware but I will check it out. Briarcliffe is in Glenolden post office zip code 19036 but is governed by Darby Township. So that is where we should check the ordinance, I will check there also. Please call me at 610-299-6993 for any home purchase you are looking to make. In the meantime I will check on any animal ordinance in both places.
Thank you

If you qualify for both mortgage payments without counting the rent it should work. If you need the rent in order to qualify it will be difficult. If your current mortgage is an FHA it may be hard to get another one unless you are moving to another area, out of commuting distance. ... more

You are in the Glenolden area, I believe. An award-winning school district nearby would be Wallingford. But you may have different needs. Do you want a school with small classes? Do you want an area with a certain cultural diversity? has much of this information. I always recommned that you go visit the schools and see the classes and talk to the principals first. You can get a real flavor for the atmosphere that way. Good luck to you. ... more

Can you call the township directly? You should get that question answered directly from the source. Or the seller should know.
