Congratulations on your first sale??.
My first suggestion is to see if you can find a contractor who will take your $5,000 and carry you for the balance until you sell the house. You can tell the contractor that he can have a second mortgage on the property for the balance until it sells, hopefully in the next few months.
Ernesto, you haven’t shared any information about you, your credit, or your circumstance, so it’s difficult to financially advise you. Offering a family member who has a little cash lying around, or has room on a credit card could be a next choice. I would make them the same offer.
