My sisters and I own 16 acres in Pennsylvania that was willed to us by our grandfather. I am the majority owner holding 65%. I am currently living in a trailer on the property and pay 100% of the property taxes. The trailer is not in great shape and I am looking to purchase a new double wide. Will I be able to get a mortgage?
ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:
That is a question that you would have to pose to the bank. Mortgage against the land? Not without all the owners of the property signing off. Mortgage against the double wide? Depends on your income and assets.
