We have a potential buyer for mother in law's house. A young single mother has seen it 3 times now. She LOVES the house. She WANTS the house BAD. But the economy is scaring her out of putting in an offer. mother in law's house is an old 4 bedroom victorian. It's in very good condition, just needs a bit of updating and maintenance. There is nothing seriously wrong with the house. And even at the 79,000 price, the house is priced low. The woman would be getting a steal at that price as the house also sits on a huge lot in a good neighborhood. mother in law told husband's brother she's ready to drop the price. For now she'll go as low as she paid for it. (68,000) mother in law got it as a steal cuz the young couple she bought it from had to move out of state for teaching jobs. They needed to unload the house to afford the new one they'd bought. The couple grabbed her offer because she paid cash for it. There is an open house sunday. Realitor told brother in law that if this woman steps foot inside the house she won't let her leave until she's hooked the sale. (realitor also is owner of the co) mother in law is getting mighty desperate. Her money is disappearing and she's nearly broke. She MIGHT be able to make rent up until July. MIGHT. After that her savings will be totally gone, and she'll have nothing to pad her income to meet the rent. And if that happens........I dunno what we'll do. She can't go home. She can't live with either son. So it would be back to the nursing home I guess. But she can't afford that either. mother in law is so distaught over this she is a wreck, to put it mildly. She wrings her hands constantly.....she can't eat, can't sleep. She's snappy. And she ripped poor sister in law a new one really really bad. And people I've never known my mother in law to ever raise her voice! Sister in law has known mother in law for 50 yrs......it blew her right out of the water, she's as close to her as I am. So think good thoughts, say prayer, rattle those beads.......anything you can think of. We need this house to sell! Thanks.
