In our area, investment groups have picked up 100's of houses for fix-up & flip. But during the past 6 months they have reversed that and are now renting the houses. Last spring, the sellers suddenly got lots of offers for more than the listing prices - ie, the suppluy of available houses was drying up. So the investers realized that the price of houses was going sharply upward. I know of one guy, a contractor who flipped dozens of houses over the past few years, who now has 14 rental houses - and expects to make $30k to $50k on each one on appreciation. He will keep them rented for at least a year to meet the longterm capital gains test so his tax will be only 15%.

Don't know about your SC market - but you might want to look at taking it off the market and renting it out for a couple yrs and then sell it?

You have to own it for one year - and the capital gain tax is 15% on your profit.
The first rule of landlording - don't rent to an acquaintance, a co-worker, a friend, and never ever to a relative, you need a formal arm's length agreement with a stranger. I doubt that it will be 'destroyed', I've been a landlord for over 35 years, 4 houses, never had one destroyed. But if it happens, that is what insurance is for.

try to seek for a free consultation your financial problem on some credit consulting company and relay to them about your problem before selling your car. I idea is good but you need to seek advice first.

Free advice is worth exactly what you pay for it.

That's why there is no advice given on this board. It's all strictly opinion.

Well, I don't think so that is it going to be in your favour. I've an another solution for you You can work out your own payment plan with your creditors. If you've missed one or more payments, ask your creditors to help you out from this situation.
