The folks at the zoning office themselves will tell you the odds are heavily against reversion to a 2-family dwelling. Your appeal will likely waste money and time, and cause you much frustration.

The wise owner of any income property retains a property manager to maintain a house and keep it profitable for the owner-investor.

Contact me whenever you like to review whether that smart choice might apply to your property.

I would be more than happy to search for a home for you that has either owner financing or a rent
to own option. We have a special criteria section that real estate agents can access. Call me or email me and we can get you started on a search immediately.

Another option you could think about is renting yourself, on a month to month, until you meet your requirements for that income. Then you could search for your ideal home, giving you better choices, and have more flexability for your move after the closing.

Check this great site for short term stays..

Airbnb, which says it is handling 10,000 guests a night, is at the center of a boom in new companies that are creating a market for places to stay — a spare room, a house when the owners are on vacation or even a backyard treehouse. ... more

Closing costs come from your lender, they are the ones who know all of your financial information as well as the financial details of your potential home loan fees. If you are purchasing your home with cash only then it would be your attorney who would tell you your closing costs.

Best wishes in your new home.
