There is the Shawano County Housing Authority. I'm not sure if they qualify as Section 8, but they offer low-income housing for families, people with disabilities and the elderly. (They rent, not sell homes, but in case you need the info)

It would seem that the FLIP market has dried up:

The primary reason is that most of the good potentials have been flipped, but also, it requires at least a little bit of appreciation and enthusiasm on the part of the Buyers.

Add to that; when you're talking about $70-$80,000 houses, there just isn't enough meat.

Good luck and may God bless

If you owned the mobile home and the Mobile home was not an "RV" (With a motor) than according to the IRS it is your primary residence and you do not qualify. The determination appears to be how "Mobile" your mobile home is. You do not need to own the land it is on. This is unfortunate but it appears the IRS has drawn the line. ... more

The best person to answer this question is the Reator that wrote the offer for you. The terms and conditions within the offer will dictate how long you "MUST" stay in this waiting stage. In most cases you are bound into the contract for a certain period. After that time frame you may or may not be able to withdraw the offer and move on.

The sellers bank is under no obligation to accept a short sale although in most cases it is in their best interest. Some banks will respond in a week or so. Others may take several months to decide if they will accept or reject the short sale. Often a seller will accept several offers and their bank will choose which offer to accept. Short sales are not for the weak hearted. It is true that you can get a good deal but you have to ask yourself if the wait is worth it.

You can always continue to look at houses. Nothing is stopping you from doing this but, DO NOT write an offer on any other properties until you are fully released from your existing transaction. Doing so may put you in a situation where you will be bound by 2 contracts. This could get ugly!

Good luck in your transaction. I hope it all comes together for you!

There is some misinformation in the answers here....we are CDPE Certified Distressed Property Experts which means essentially that we have taken additional training and continual training in short sales. IF you are dealing with a listing agent who knows and understands the short sale process...the "deal price" is already the list price. The listing agent should have a good idea of what will be acceptable to the lender...and there is no "fixed" answer for this since not all listing agents price short sales below market as they should. Rely on an agent with short sale experience and credentials or the transaction may not close. ... more

Shellie Mathe answered:
Do not assume that Short Sale means a Deal. It only means that the home is selling for less that the seller owes on it - not necessarily less that it is worth. In the current market a number of home owners owe more than the market value of the home. Contact a reputable buyers agent in your area that can help you determine the value of the home based on market conditions and recent sales not on what is owed on the home. I know that your area is a bit more "unique" in pricing because of the resort type area so you really need to talk to a local agent. I serve on several Realtor committees with some of you agents. If you want to contact me I will give you some names. shellie@matheteam.com. ... more
