“Have your real estate agent bring you someone who can cash you out by getting a loan for what you are owed. This is second or third rate work by your real estate agent, who deserves to be dumped.”

There’s no real estate agent involved. While being cashed out is awesome, I like the idea of holding the 145k note bearing 5% interest...diversification for my mostly stock portfolio. >>

The problem is that it could easily go into default and then be an expensive mess to deal with.

Paying a real estate commission to get a cash payout to you would have been money well spent, in my opinion.

Of course I hope it works out for you.

I tend to be excessively risk averse, but I do avoid problems that way.
