Michael Cheng answered:
If you can buy a condo your mom can live in for $200K cash, then you should definitely do it as soon as possible. Prices for condos in that price range are moving up quickly due to investor demand. So, you'll need to do an all cash deal to stay competitive. Afterwards, you should look into financing if you can get a good rate below 4%. ... more

Shane Milne answered:
In general, in the situation where you've had a BK & a mortgage was included, when you apply for new mortgage financing the underwriter is going to review the BK paperwork and see the mortgage was included. The underwriter is going to ask what happened to that property and you are going to have to provide some final disposition paperwork on it (i.e. a foreclosure deed, or a letter from the mortgage lender stating when they foreclosed on it) as well as write a letter of explanation.

I don't quite understand the situation though - you said you were to surrender the home. You mean do a deed in lieu of foreclosure? If so, what happened to you doing the deed in lieu of foreclosure? If the lender was supposed to take the property back without you doing a deed in lieu, then that would just be a normal foreclosure. Feel free to hit the "answer question" button and respond to your own question with more details rather than hitting "reply" under my answer, otherwise I won't get notified that you have responded. You can also contact me directly if you'd like.

Allyson Haim answered:
Your broker should have provided you a Notice to Perform to sign and send to the buyer. This gives your buyer a specific deadline to perform or you have the legal right to cancel the contract.
It depends on exactly where you are at in the process or the likelihood of still closing whether your broker will recommend this or help you continue with the current buyer. If the buyer has already signed loan docs and is just working out some issues, the broker might recommend giving the buyer a few extra days. If the buyer cannot get a loan, then the Notice to perform would give them a few days to provide proof of a firm loan committment or you can cancel.

Tracey Martin answered:
You can always list it high making sure the sellers understand that the price is determined by what a buyer will pay and if you not getting offers it means the home is over-priced. Reductions in the list price can be built into the listing agreement. If you haven't gotten an offer in the first two weeks, reduce the price. Repeat every two weeks until an offer is received. ... more

Tommy Lee answered:
First time I have heard that one. But I have heard of something related.

My guess is the banks will see through this and still go after him. He was the primary and the NOD was filed while his name is on the deed. If he tries to get his name off, they will suspect bank fraud. They won't care if he lived in it or not. And they won't care if they are still together or not.

The best bet is to do a short sale. Otherwise, both are going to have their credit dinged.
