Hi Javy,

I would suggest you contact your lender.

As previously asked, do you want to sell in order to buy another home? OR Do you want to keep the home as an investment property for cash flow? Need details.

Good luck!

With not enough details, what the size of your home is, what you paid for, how much you still owe the bank, i.e. can you sell and have after all expenses net to seller, what do you want to buy, how big and where and what price range are you thinking.

Too many items to be clarified in order to give you a good answer as a Realtor, and a lender would be
in the very same situation. Would you like to be connected with a good Realtor and lender in the Elmwood Park area to discuss and find a good solution for YOU?

If you have a modified loan , you will be denied in a new loan , because you can afford it .
Do a shortsale in you house , if you are not behind in the payments and you keep making the payments you can buy after the shortsale close with an fha
Si tienes un prestamo modificado , lo mas posible es que tu prestamo nuevo sea denegado ...por que ? Porque no puedes pagar el que tienes ahora asi es como estos bancos piensan hoy en dia ...mi consejo es que hagas una venta corta shortsale y si no estas retrasado con los pagos actualmente vas a poder comprar una casa seguido con un fha

Speak with a lender and see about refinancing your loan.

speak with a qualified lender to see if you can refinance your loan first. Too many variables at this point to give you accurate advice.

Javey, can you tell me a bit more about what you want to do? I am not sure I understand, from what you have provided, what your intentions are. I want to give as good an answer as possible.

I'm thinking of renting the current home I'm in. Want to purchase a new home. I
honestly don't think I will make any profit selling my home. It currently needs some updates in the kitchen as well as the main bathroom. Its just upsetting to see all these rehabbed houses going for sale now for around the same price I purchased my home the first time around.

You can refinance your current home as long as it is not up for sale, is it your intention to keep the current property and buy another? For me to tell you what your options are I would need to check your credit and review the financials to give you specific options.
Please call me to discuss

You can refinance to a lower rate or sell your home in order to allow you to purchase a new one.

Every deal is different - feel free to contact a lender so you can get accurate info pertinent to your specific needs.

Contact me should you need any help.
