The majority of things I have heard or read about it are negative, The biggest issue appears to be weather an effective drainage plane and the appropriate use or non-use of interior vapour barriers have been used . If you had a good inspector someone familar with the product that might give you a better piece of mind. ... more

Consider contacting any local realty office(s) for available rentals; for by owner rentals, check local print media, word of mouth--ask around the school district, etc.

When you say it was appraised for $215,000 do you actually mean appraised or that is the tax assessed valuation on the property? They can be two entirely different values. As far as a starting bid, you need to speak with your Realtor regarding the amount. They should be able to show you comparable properties in the area so that you can see what they are selling for. That should give you a good idea of where to begin and where to end. Good luck!!

Are you talking about off Inwood area?

Your buyers agent can comp the location, no one can render an opinion unless entire review takes place.

Many factors come into play determine true value of a home

Gosh I'm sorry to hear about this situation. It seems to me that you should talk to a real estate attorney.

Assuming that you tenants were going their part - actually paying their rent - would that cover the basic monthly expenses (mortgage, insurance, water, sewer, property taxes)? Have you started eviction proceedings? In most states you can do this after 3 months, but again - check with a real estate lawyer - one who also knows foreclosure law - since that is being threatened on you.

It *might* be possible that the lender would consider letting you walk away entirely - if you are giving them all the equity that you used to buy into the property. But that too should be negotiated with an attorney at your side - since you'll need a contract in any case. I wish you well and hope that this can have a good ending for you.

You have to ask the builder what incentives you get if you use their Mortgage Co. You should ask another lender that is local just to be sure. Let me know if you need any help. I have been selling New Homes for over 11 years.
