Our house was our primary residence 2006-2008 in Iowa. Moved to another state to obtain gainful employment.
We purchased for $123,000
Currently owe $119,000, would have to sell for $128,000 just to pay the realtor.
Houses in the neighborhood selling for $100,000-$110,000
80/20 loan to purchase
Rented for the last 18 months until renters just left.
Honestly can't afford the payments, previously we spent all our 401K to keep the payments going while we tried to sell it.
Afraid to rent out again after the damage the last tenants did, feel it would be better for everyone to cut our losses now before incurring more devaluing of the property by tenants.
But I'm reading on the internet that if I'm not currently in the home and am current on my payments, I have no hope of receiving a DIL.
The house is on the market starting this weekend, I have enough in savings to make this months payment and next and then we will not be able to make anymore.
Is it true I can't obtain a DIL and if I did, would I have to pay capital gains on the sale?
