Basically I want to get into writing that I will pay his mortgage until I can qualify for a Home loan but we are having trouble figuring out what the best contract would be for our situation

Thanks for the question.

You will want to get in touch with a financial institution first. You could go to your local branch wherever you currently do your banking or we could recommend one of the mortgage loan officers that we speak with on a daily basis.

When you chose who you would like to go through they will run your credit and gather some information from you such as pay stubs, work history, rental history and what current debt you have so they can determine your debt to income ratio to be able to give you accurate information on how much you can afford when you go out to purchase a home.

Be careful though with how much they tell you that you are qualified for, they will often stretch you out to the max and you do not want to stretch yourself to thin so that all you are working for is to pay the house note and you won't be able to take any vacations or have any kind of social life. :)

Give me a call and we can talk more about the process.

I look forward to hearing from you!!

Jason Nolan answered:
If the home is in a park and you are paying lot rent, then you don't technically have a "mortgage" but rather an installment loan. That is a good thing. DO NOT pay the loan down ahead of time. Contact the lender and let them know you are putting the home for sale and likely will not sell for enough to cover the balance owed. If you have good credit and want to maintain it, you can consider taking out a seperate, unsecured loan to pay the difference or even ask the current lender to offer you an unsecured loan for the difference to release the lien on title. ... more

I agree consider renting this home or invest some $ and ask your listing agent to bring in a stager consultant we have them here who will do that for just around $200 in which they come in and tell what should be where furniture , minimal decor to make your home stand out from the others. You can also consider paying the closing costs that will help bring buyers to consider your home. You do not want to walk away , you will still have that debt with you. I would hope that your listing agent can help you be creative. This market does take being creative to get it sold and shown.

Hi Christine,

Thank you for reaching out to us about this issue. You can alert our Customer Service team about this one of two ways:

1. You can select the 'Report error' link on the right side of the page where your home's property details are displayed and report the home as sold.

2. You can email our Customer Service team via the link below to report the problem.

In either case, our Customer Service team will then remove the listing and follow up with you within 24 to 48 hours.

Best Wishes,
