In addition to our own home, we own 2 rental properties, both of which we rent long-term to locals. In 2009 we rolled all 3 mortgages into one to save cashflow. In Sept. 2014 we refinanced it at 3.75%, 15 year amort, $442k. I've been keeping track as if we had 3 mortgages, and our home's share is $236k, Rental 1 is $168k, and Rental 2 is $39k. Cashflow picture, including everything: Rental 1 loses $500/month. Rental 2 makes about $100/month, but doesn't have exterior maintenance built into the hoa fee. Rental 1 market value is around $4-500k. Market value for Rental 2 is maybe $175k.<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 13 Jan 2015 19:15:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Sell-or-keep-rental-properties/572116/ 2015-01-13T19:15:00Z can a person sell you a house knowing there is black mold in it and not tell you http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-a-person-sell-you-a-house-knowing-there-is-black-mold-in-it-and-not-tell-you/568847/ 9 replies Sat, 06 Dec 2014 03:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-a-person-sell-you-a-house-knowing-there-is-black-mold-in-it-and-not-tell-you/568847/ 2014-12-06T03:24:00Z Wyoming is NON disclosure state http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Wyoming-is-NON-disclosure-state/462215/ Zestimate for my property with single wide trailer seems to be WAY off.

Can they refinance the existing mortgage under these circumstances? &nbsp;We have not notified the mortgage company of the death of their mother, and the mortgage is still in her name.

How much more cash do we need? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/First-Time-Home-Buyers-in-Cheyenne-Wyoming-How-much-more-cash-do-we-need/504121/ First Time Home Buyers in Cheyenne Wyoming. My wife and I each have credit scores between 780 and 800. The houses we are interested in range from $275k to $325k. We have a 5% down payment saved ($20k). We make $8600/month between the two of us before taxes. Our debt to income ratio is 12%. Two questions: 1) Will we be likely to get a loan for around $300k with our income and only a 5% down payment and 2) If so, how much more cash will we need to save for closing costs, appraisals, inspections, etc... We hope to buy something next Spring, so it would be very helpful to know how much more cash we need to save first.
