Hi Jan,

I think your best move would be to speak with a Mortgage Broker to go through the process of determining how much you could afford if you converted your townhome into a rental and purchased a new primary residence.

Selling and coming to the table with the extra $250K is probably not a wise choice. A Short Sale is also probably not an option due to leaving your credit severely damaged to the point buying will not be an option for at least two years.

Best, Steve

Hi Mortgagetech,

Well, it's spelled out in your contract. I assume that you have not read your contract and it is hard for me to answer your question without looking at it. If you like, you can give me a call at 408-426-1441 or email me ( so I can look over your contract one more time.

Take care.

I suggest that you promote to the reo listing agent and there office. You can usually find that info by looking up reo's then see who listed them and there contact info. Then go visit there office and talk to them in person most have there own set up team, but maybe they aren't doing the job well or you can offer a better service, you never know.

As a realtor and not a legal expert, I would encourage you to consult with an attorney. However, if its just removing your son off the title you can have him transfer his ownership to you by quit claiming the property. He would sign a quit claim deed and you could record it at the county office of the recorder.

I think if you called the county recorder's office they could tell you exactly the best way to handle this. I'm not sure quit claiming is what they would recommend, since there is family involved there may just be an easy what to transfer ownership entirely to you. The county recorder can let you know of the proceedure and costs involved in getting this done.

Good luck,
