If you are having problems making your mortgage payments, you might be thinking of selling your house. It is important to understand a few things about listing and selling a house if you are considering doing so.
The most important thing to know about selling real property (land, houses, condos or anything with a Deed) is that you probably can't sell it if you aren't able to pay off any/all liens on the property such as mortgages, equity lines, and other liens such as tax liens or judgment liens.
Sometimes people are not aware of all the liens against the property until they have signed a contract for sale. It is advisable to check your credit report and you might also go to the court to see if there are any judgments or liens recorded against your property that you don't know about before you put your property up for sale.
