I wouldn't recommend auctions unless you are familiar with them. Your best bet is to contact a local Realtor to work with. They can give you a comparative market analysis and provide you with the best tools to help get your home sold.

Most likely no, your agent needs to maintain your listing such as withdraw it from ads, and sites like this if it comes off the market. If it is not withdrawn, the computer keeps counting days on market. ... more

Your 1st step is to get "pre-qualified" through your preferred lender. I would suggest seeing a Mortgage Broker if your credit is marginal. As, they will usually have many more options.

A trusted Buyers agent in your area can refer you to a Good lender that they know and trust.

If all else fails, a Lease/option can be a Great avenue to take if needed to accomplish your goal w/o waiting for your credit scores to be perfect and your varifiable income to be high enough for conventional financing.

L/O's in this market, can be a wonderful Win/Win opportunity for both Buyer and Seller. It's NOT a Sellers market anymore and L/O's can easily be mutually beneficial!

Here's another thought on creative financing:

Good Luck!

Hey Guzey,

There is! How wide of an area are you looking at though? You can contact banks in your area, they have lists, you can drive down to the courthouse and get some info, you can go talk to your county clerk. Lots of ways to get it. However, you'll probably spend hours gathering all this info, especially if your looking at a couple different markets, where you could spend a couple bucks and get it instantly from one of the aggregated websites.

Just depends on how much money a few hours of your time is worth. After all, time is money! Up to you.

I would highly recommend driving through the area you are interested in at various times during the day and evening. That would give you a feel for the neighborhood. Then I would recommend stopping by the police department and asking about that specific area. If you have any other questions about buying, don't hesitate to ask or visit my website Have a great weekend! ... more

Be sure to check into rehab financing too if you need it. A couple of the big lenders are offering it on the foreclosures right now to help move properties in need of repair and it can help bring distressed properties back up to livable at a reasonable rate. ... more

I would suggest you consider these suggestions:

1. Talk with a local Realtor regarding the current market value. Preferably a Realtor with Short Sale experience.

2. Contact your lender immediately and let them know that you are unemployed. If the loan servicing agency contacts you respond, answer the phone , and start a dialogue.

3. I would also look into the possibility of leasing the property. Have your Realtor give you an idea of the lease amount. Talk with a tax professional about the tax implications.

4. Try to find a room mate, someone to help share the mortgage cost. Many people are in a tough spot and need a short term living situation. Make sure that you check their credit.

From the lender's perspective, they would rank order their options this way:
1. Keep you in the house, modify the loan IF you want to stay in the house and IF the prospects of you being able to maintain current payments.
2. Keep you in the house, they might modify your loan structure to make it affordable.
3. Sell the property as a short sale, meaning you pay no closing costs, they absorb a loss, pay for closing costs
4. Allow the lender to foreclose - this is the most expensive alternative for a lender which they would rather avoid.

If you would like a referral to an experienced short sale Realtor, let me know. Good luck.

Bill Eckler answered:

If in your judgement, this will increase the sale ability of the home or increase the amount it sells for it may be worthwhile, otherwise list it w/o changing it.

Your agent's recommendation should be considered.

Good luck
