You cannot get on the title unless you are also on the mortgage. Have your credit scores run to see if you can get on the loan with your wife. Unless you are behind on payments, there should be no liens against you.
If you are not on the title or mortgage, after your wife buys the home, you can possibly do a "Quit cliam" deed and have the home put in both your names. However, you still need to consult an attorney to do this as it may affect your title insurance policy.

Hello:

I work with clients in that area, but there is not a train to NYC right there.
There is a train in the Trenton/Hamilton area that goes to NYC.
Let me know if I can be of assistance. I could email you a list of homes in
Sicklerville and surrounding areas if you would like.

Thank you!

BE PATIENT!
Short Sales can take quite a while to get an answer.
You must first make and offer to the seller, once the seller accepts your offer the paperwork is then submitted to the bank for approval. This process can take weeks if not months.

The best way to ensure your offer is accepted is to keep it reasonable, keep the contigencies at a minimum and have your financing in place before making an offer

Shanise-
I am sorry to tell you that no, you cannot borrow more than the purchase price of the home on a purchase. Even if the home sold for a dollar, you would need to purchase the home and then turn around and do a cash out refinance. Unfortunately, FHA does not allow cash out on a property within the first 12 months of ownership. More lenders used to offer conventional financing basing the loan on the appraised value even after 1 day on title, but even that has gone away and 6 months is now the minimum requirement to cash out on conventional financing.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to call me.

Hello Mike,

A do alot of business in Sicklerville. For starters Spring Valley has a Sicklerville mailing address but its actually in Gloucester Twp. This is a different school district. Much better than SIcklerville schools. You can get free school reports on my website. www.southnewjerseyhomes.com There are quite a few reasons why there is alot of inventory in town. One is the taxes. Many locals are feeling the pinch. In addition there are quite a few homeowners who in adjustable rate mortgages or in preforeclosure. This area has always been a place where you can get alot of home for your money. The trade off is the taxes and the commute. Some people do not want to deal with Route 42. Spring Valley is a nice development. Depending on your price range and what you are looking for there's alot of good deals out there now. If you would like more info about the town in general you can visit my other site which is dedicated to Sicklerville www.sicklerville-real-estate.com Or feel free to call me in my office to briefly discuss. I'll provide you with honest, straight forward answers. ... more

Kenneth Verbeyst answered:
Be aware that selling commercial typically takes far longer than residential. If it hasnt been on market more than a few months your concerns could be premature. Many developers have quite a process to go thru to make decisions. (assuming you have city sewer and water and will be able to get permits) It is possible that the structures on site actually are bringing your value down especially if all around you is new. If there are vacancies in area this may also hurt you. ... more

Your best bet would be to discuss with your friend his/her comments. What don't they like about the town. Take some time and review online community and school information about the town. There are several websites available to do this. Check out my website and use the community information tab.

Travis,

I specialized in South Jersey Real Estate. There's alot of inventory avaliable now in the area. Your decision should be based on how long you will be in the area. Turnerville and Sicklerville are neighboring towns, in some parts they overlap but municipal services are different. If you have children schools will play a role. In addition water expensives have recently greatly increased in one of the towns. This will affect your expenses as a homeowner. I would not suggest a lease purchase. This usually does not work in your best interests. You can call me anytime direct to privately discuss. Information is free. You should know all your options and the potential outcome of them all.

Janean,

I specialize in Sicklerville real estate. Nothing particularly wrong with the area. Wilton's Corner is a nice subdivsion with parks, community room, pool etc. Overall there is alot of inventory in Sicklerville. Recently the township increased the water expensives by 300%. Many of the homeowners are now upside down. For instance there is one home where in 2005 the homeowner paid $350k. Now there home is selling $300k . Some got caught up in the interest only mortgage. Now that the adjustable rate has kicked in they can't afford their homes. You can search my site for more info on Sicklerville real estate. http://www.sicklerville-real-estate.com/ or you can see our entire inventory of South Jersey homes at www.southnewjerseyhomes.com just go to the tab search local MLS. Call me I can let you know about comparable homes other townships so that you will know all your options. It will be my pleasure to assist you.

Hello Paula,
My office is in Cherry Hill which is just west of Marlton. South Jersey is a great place to live with many shops. restaurants and just a short trip to Philadelphia by car or train. Sicklerville is one of my farm territories http://www.sicklerville-real-estate.com/ Here's a few things that you should consider in no particular order. Your commute, the type of home, schools (if applicable), price range. There's alot of inventory in Sicklerviille and you can find a great home there. However it will not be the most convenient place for you to commute back and forth to work. There's a few things you should know that would have a great bearing on your living expenses. Feel free to search our local MLS at http://www.mlsfinder.com/nj_trend/jeremyhill/ or you can visit my site athttp:// www.southnewjerseyhomes.com for free school reports. I can assist you in finding the best home to fit your specific needs and criteria. Its important that you get straight answers and you know all your options when it comes to making your next home purchase. As an alternattive you may consider a short term rental until you are more familiar with the area. I recently assisted one of my relos in obtaining a great apartment in a nice community.

Check with your local Board of Realtors first. If you cannot get the information from them,next check county records.In most towns and cities throughout the US. these records are available to the public. Also, it is not so important who sold the most homes, it's who did the best job! ... more

I am. I could list your house on the way to Borgata...

Just kidding. Way too far South for me. But you should interview several agents in your area and choose the one with the best marketing program. Make sure you select a full-time Realtor, you do not want to work with someone who has a day job. Good luck!

Hi,

I am a licensed broker in NJ, but do not service Sicklerville. I do have access to some solds, but my data source provides me the info in the form of a PDF file.

An active Realtor in your area will have the most up to date info via their MLS system. Perhaps one will chime in and assist.

What I can offer is secondary to that, but if you want or need it, please email me, and I will send to you. You can also visit Trulia's Real Estate Guides section, or try Zillow. BTW. I do not recommend using Zillow for Zestimates in determining value for either selling or purchasing homes. Zestimates are best used for entertainment purposes.

Regards
Deborah

Ute Ferdig answered:
Hello Nick. Your question calls for several answers. First of all, in a short sale, the seller asks the lender(s) to take less than what is owed on the property. That's why it's called short sale. One of the things the lenders take into consideration when making a decision is the seller's overall financial situation. While the seller does not have to be insolvent, the seller cannot offer to pay for things such as repairs, closing costs, removal of hazardous waste, etc. Since the seller does not have money to bring to the table, it is possible that the short sale will only be successful if you agree as part of the contract to pay for certain outstanding house related debts such as tax liens, mechanic's liens. In the end, the closing agent or attorney cannot settle the sale or close escrow unless there is enough money brought to the table to satisfy all the liens.

I am not sure that I understand your last question regarding you putting a lien on the house and have ownership of it because of the lien. I am not sure why you'd be able to put a lien on the house and how you'd be able to get ownership of the hosue because of the lien. Can you explain your thinking.

Lastly, but not least. The undergroung oil tank would concern me as I don't think you can just dig it up yourself. An inground oil tank is considered hazardous waste because of the potential of discovering an oil leak. If an oil leak is discovered, you as the new owner can be responsible for the hazardous waste cleanup. I would under no circumstances agree to dig up the oil tank before the close of escrow and I would be extremely cautious about buying a property that has an inground oil tank without knowing for sure that there's no leak. You said you'd have to pay to dig up the oil tank if necessary. Who will determine whether it's necessary?
