Robert, Thank you for contacting me!
The good news is that while assumable mortgages have not been available for many years, there are other avenues that would be advantageous to you instead of the traditional mortgage. Contract for deed with owner finance is an attractive alternative. Also this provides a safety factor for your investment. If you let me know what you are looking for (specifically in what price range) I can run a search. I can be reached toll free at 866-466-4106, anytime or email me direct at email@example.com
There are some incredible deals when we seek them out. Below is a website portal into our MLS. With credit being tight, when we find what you are looking for we can find out what possibilities may be acceptable. I am the 800 pound gorilla (negotiator) in the room!
