Karen Peyton answered:
Before doing anything, speak with a lender who can give you scenarios relevant to your financial scenario. A HELOC may be an option but not necessarily the best.

Good luck!

Did you make the sales contract contingent upon a property inspection. If yes, you should be able to get out easily. If you didn't, you can walk away from the contract, you would just lose your security deposit. ... more

I would be happy to do a Free Market Analysis for you. What that does is look at homes like yours that have sold and current market conditions and gives you a good guideline as to what your house should sell for.
I am a local agent to the Muncy Area and am familiar with your location.

Happy to assist anytime.

Don Tepper answered:

With impeccable credit, go to your bank or credit union and take out a personal loan. Not a mortgage, not a real estate loan. Just a personal loan.

Hope that helps.

Michael D Delp answered:
It depends on your credit score, your income, and how much you were looking to spend on your home. There is a lot more information needed to see if you will qualify for a loan.
If you have any other questions, or need help qualifying for a mortgage, feel free to contact me.
The very best of luck to you!

HurtsForYou answered:

First, I'm sorry that you and your daughter are experiencing this unfortunate and certainly painful situation...

The circumstances you described are a little challenging... You said that you are renting from your daughter, but her husband/ex-husband gave you an eviction notice. So, is she currently renting the home from him? Or are you? Does anyone have a paper-based lease agreement, or has everything been completely verbal thus far?

Don't answer any of the above questions in this forum (or any) -- but rather, accept the fact that these challenges are in front of you, and unless immediate, direct, legal actions are taken, you and your daughter *will* ultimately be forced out of the home, if it is sold.

If you and/or your daughter have little or no income, are disabled, or have any other financial limitations, the best thing you can do is to contact North Penn Legal free legal aid services. They have lawyers there who will help you for free, including representing you in court, should it go to that extent. I've had to use such a service in the past, and they're top-notch attorneys -- with a heart and some compassion for their Pro Bono (non-paying) clients.

In Lycoming County, their website is:
Call them at: 1-877-953-4250 A friendly person there will provide you with all of the information you will need in order to be qualified. Typically they will kind of "pre-qualify" you over the phone, then have you come in to fill out a simple form.

Another option is searching on
I did a search for you, in your area, for lawyers who focus on Real Estate and Landlord/Tenant law. The direct link to that is:
There is a list of lawyers who do pro-bono work, if you and/or your daughter do not qualify for North Penn Legal Services (the free legal services I first mentioned above).

I hope that helps you and your daughter!
May God bless you both, and get you through this as quickly and easily as possible...
