Hello, I came across your ad and would suggest to see the appraisal , or better yet talk to a mortgage broker (which you would have too anyway to get a mortgage for it) and ask him to see what the appraised value would be and to show you the figures such as mortgage payment, taxes, insurance. That whay you have all the figues in front of you. ( which should be easy because I am a Mortgage Broker myself. ) and inregards to him discounting the second mortgage that at times is common practice because being in 2nd position is a gamble anyway because if you default the only recourse he has is to file judgement so investors ( or rehabbers ) perfer to just sell the property and get their invested money out of the deal anyway. Also with the investors that I work with, most of the time I findout that they have a short term mortgage ( which they took out to rehad the property ) and if they do not pay this short term mortgage off the property will be forclosed on anyway and they lost their money in the deal , so please do not be discouraged because he is willing to give you $5,000 cash back. Believe it or not there are deals such as this one out there !!! Take advantage when you can !!! Also Im in Virginia as well. Good luck !!!
