Unless the mortgage is old, and I mean very, very old, it will be necessary to meet the same qualifications as the original mortgagor. On the other hand, that "old" mortgage will have a high interest rate when compared to those offered today. may be easier to qualify for a mortgage in terms of income requirements than you think!

Good luck!

Hi Elmer,

While you can't advertise FSBO's on Trulia you can post them on Zillow and Craigslist, in addition to 3rd party sites like

However, if you do ever decide you would like the services of a Real Estate Professional, I would love to have the opportunity sit down with you and discuss how I can generally sell your property much faster & on average for 13% more money than the owner alone :).

Either way best of luck!

I would not lease to the buyer, however, I would recommend a Temporary Occupancy Agreement as this doesn't create a landlord tenant relationship. It just outlines the terms of them moving in and paying a prorated daily amount. You have a lot of obligations as a landlord and this prevents those and protects you. ... more

I definitely agree with Robin! It is important that you are priced right and in line with the market in order to sell quickly. 3Brs can sell just a quickly as a 4Br and vice versa.

I would reach out the the Board of Assessors if you feel the assessment is wrong... I believe that's what you meant to say instead of appraisal. They will be your best source to answer your questions regarding your assessment value. Your closing attorney would be another good source as well. ... more

As mentioned before in other posts, more info is needed to make an accurate estimate of value. You can contact me, or another agent , for a market analysis or you can hire an appraiser to give you the same information. As always, it's location,location, location and condition of the house.

Hello Tulear, Houses are indeed selling in Ardsley -- over 50 this year so far; I closed a sale on 44th St just last week! Many of these properties are well presented, well located homes, and I am sure quite a few have updated features -- but the biggest factor in selling right now is being well priced! The current market is driven by price and value, and you must be priced correctly – and competitively, otherwise you risk being on the market for months, with few showings and no sale.
Because of the large amount of current inventory, Buyers are more decisive -- they want to shop for the home that is in the best condition for the best price. Assuming your property is does not have a renovated kitchen, it will need to be priced very competitively in comparison with other listed homes that need updating, and certainly well below those that do have recent renovations. You should have a qualified real estate agent do a comparative market analysis of the neighborhood to educate you about current sales trends and help you to home in on a viable price point for your property!
