You will need to check your cash for keys agreement with the bank as they can vary. If you are speaking about your kitchen cabinetry, they are fixtures and are not typically items you can take with you whether you are participating in "cash for keys" or selling your home. I can almost guarantee you that if you remove cabinets when you leave you will not receive your "cash." Talk with your contact for the "cash for keys" there is always a chance they may work something out with you.

Hope that helps.

20% or more is a great down payment. With banks being so strict, due to your BK, it will be at least a few years before you can even apply for a mortgage. Feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have. ... more

Raymond, Realtors are prohibited from discussing race or ethnicity with a buyer or a seller. There are many websites where you can research crime, etc. You should be able to live anywhere where you want? I would be pleased to show you homes anywhere on Long Island or Queens. Good luck to you.

Anna M Brocco answered:
The decision is entirely yours--what will suit your finances best--if buying a two family and one part isn't rented for a period of time can you carry the expenses. If you already haven't done so--why not visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first and see exactly what your budget can handle. Lenders have their income v. debt criteria for qualifying for the amount of a mortgage—oftentimes requiring that housing costs are not in excess of one-third of gross income in addition to a stipulated income v. overall debt-ratio. What lenders don’t know are borrowers’ non-debt spending habits, present and anticipated. You, the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability. A mortgage outside your budgetary constraints can dramatically alter your overall living conditions. So, be sure to factor micro and macro economic concerns into your mortgage amount deliberations. Again, a loan officer can best advise you. ... more

No, you're not required to give the seller a copy of the report; however, if you intend to readjust your offer price based upon the results of the report, then it might help to strengthen your argument to at least show the seller a copy of the summary of the report--assuming you're still interested in purchasing the home. ... more

Pam Winterbauer answered:
Ask your Realtor to pull comparables on the property you are interested in and base you offer upon the comps. The comparables should be within the last six months. Take into consideration how long the property has been on the makret, size, amenities, upgrades, location of the property and what the market in like in the area of the property. Good luck. ... more
