Hi. glad to have found this! Bought a house in southeast
missouri in oct 98.(16,500). i borrowed 2.000 additional
dollars and put siding on the house and put new berber carpet in the house, painted it and put it on the market. The real estate co set the price at 34.500 which will be quite a hefty profit. The loan on the house is at 9% on a 10 year note and with insurance and taxes this house is costing me about 285 a month. when i bought the house it was renting for 325 but they were nopays and moved out the week i closed.
Should i continue to hold out for a sale at 285 a month
or should i put this up for lease or considering the value of the house should i refinance the house for the full amount, put the equity into a couple of mobile homes and then turn around and lease it?. or is it smart to say go to a 15-20 year not just to keep my pmt low enought to creat 100? positive cash flow and will the house sell as good occupied? sorry so long winded whew!!! and thanks
for any opinions and help.
