I have a viable offer for the van! The problem is the loan amount and the sale amount…well, they are farther apart than I’d hoped, but I’m confident this could be the best offer I will get. So right now I’m working with my banks to see if I can get a lower interest personal loan to pay the difference between the sale price and the loan.
Selling this van would immediately cut $1000 out of my monthly obligations…which in my mind more than makes up for the couple of hundred dollars a small personal loan would cost per month.
I don’t know if I’m going to be able to pull it off, if the buyers will wait to see if I can…but the opportunity has filled me with hope, that I really, really could make some significant progress to being debt free before the end of this year!
Just thought I would drop in and share this exciting possibility.
Updated: I received word from the bank this morning that they will give me a personal loan to cover the negative equity in the van. Wahoo! I’ve contacted the buyer with the news and am waiting to hear back. Please pray…the sell of this vehicle would be a GIANT leap towards my debt payoff.
The sorrow and joys of this roller-coaster overwhelm her at times, but she is committed to this course.
Hope plans to dig out of debt using any resource possible including her small business EPOH, her blog and any other resource that comes to mind!
