I am an investor and may be interested in assuming the loan. Please give me a call to discuss.

Quick simple answer, yes if loan was prior to 1988. If after lender may require approval. Word of caution, with assumables entitlement stays with property. Therefore if you wanted to purchase using va again this might cause a problem. Better off if new buyer is VA with entitlement. Also liability of default may also remain with seller.

When you bought the condo you should have received the mortgage documents which would indicate whether the loan is assumable. Something to consider is the current interest rates on new loans and the negative equity for a new buyer with a potential buyer getting a better transaction by not assuming the current loan.

Call if you have questions.
