So anyone wondering what is going om with my bank/house situation?

(See how I made it a question)

So, as suspected bankruptcy is not an option for us. So from here we move forward. Looking at rentals houses and apartments... Figuring out a budget and how to pay deposits... calling the bank to see what they can offer as far as cash for keys sort of deal... and eventually the best way to pack and move out. I am assuming we will have until the 1st Tuesday in Sept (auction day) to get it all together unless there is another agreement with the bank. I will keep you posted.

If anyone has any fabulous advice... go for it. I am all ears.

why is there no 'life sucks' category!? lol.

  • Ugh, that sucks so bad.

    I know there are some non profits that will intercede for you with your mortgage company either for modification or an exit strategy. Have you had a chance to look into any of that?

  • Will the house even sell at auction? Is it a trustee's sale?

    Answer by tasches at 7:07 PM on Jul. 5, 2012

  • We must be the only people in the world who had a successful loan modification from BOA. They dropped our interest rate and lowered our house payment. That was two years ago and we have never missed payment or been late.

    Good luck, I know how stressful it can be.

  • What about a short sale? Or is that not possible because of the modification?

  • Hmmm so will the modification work for you?

  • We will be 'shopping' on Monday. I think we may have found a rental property we can afford. It's not fabulous but it will due.
