HELP! NEED TO RELOCATEMy wife and I currently reside in Rockford, Il. She commutes to Ohare airport each day for work, which on a good day is a 3 1/2 hour round trip. We just got married last September, I own my home we are in now, which I purchased in 2005 for $120,000. It needs a few upgrades, nothing major and paint to sell. My/our problem is many.......EVEN if my house sold for $105,000 I would only walk away with $15,000 in my pocket. My wife has a condo she used to live in and tried to short sale in Roselle, Il. She now has renters in the condo as she owes about $20,000 more than the condo is worth. We both have debt, although mine is minimal, a few $400 limit cards, college tuition (not a loan), and a car payment. She has many debts due to a previous car accident which has been in litigation for several years.We want to move closer to her work so she does not have to commute, problem is my credit score is probably between 550 and 580 at best right now, hers is closer to 700. We want to get into a home in the $150,000-$175,000 price range but not over extend ourselves on the house payment. Mine is currently $411.00 with my interest rate.Is it even possible for us to sell and acquire a home loan in that range in the next year? Its a really desperate situation as the drive has caused a strain on our new marriage and she has already stated she cannot do the drive another year and I know its a tough drive and I am willing to move but I am also a realist and just do not know what to do right now to get to that point by this time next year.February 21 2014 - Machesney Park00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
