Tim Moore answered:
can one get a mortgage loan or refinance on an investment property which presently has no mortgage?
Speak to a local lender and see if you and the property qualify for a mortgage. Condo loans are something of a problem sometimes but a local lender should be able to tell you more.

How much should we lower house to get get traffic again?
