I am a home owner that owes approximately 35,000 on my home that is value at 115,000. My with in the last couple of years has not been able to work. I also have to support and adult daughter that has not been able to get a job that will support her and fails to contribute to the household financial system to any degree. Her Mother continually defends her with that she is working. We now becoming late with our payments and the credit cards have been used to suspend some of the pressure.

I have lived in my home for 30 years basically and need advice on what to do. We have attempted in the past to refinance but were not approved by BOA, and Quicken but since then improved our paying schedule until the last two months.

I have reapplied with Quicken and if approved I will repair the house to rent and move in an apartment and the additional pay some cards off and fix my truck.

If not I may have to call a house liquidator(like ugly houses) and sell it out right. Save the cash and move into an apartment.

I don’t really want to move into an apt and the wife wants a new house! A newer house would better because on environment savings like electricity. My Wife and I are both in our sixties and don’t know what to do. 

What would you suggest?  Are there agencies that can help us with our problem. We both have a income her credit is not as good as mine. I’m highly concerned.

I am not aware of all the opportunity that may be available to me or what would be the best course of action.

Thanks for the opportunity to inquire at your website, Mitch
