Re: forced sale of inherited property
i appreciate your sharing that thinking macdaddy & brat. i'm going to present all this to my brother.
i think someone here posted or i read elsewhere--& i think it is true--that houses are becoming, once again, places in which to live, not investments to flip. i call these houses teardowns but they are actually quite nice as-is.
there are currently two comparable "teardowns" for sale within blocks from mom's. one is going for $1.5 & one for $1.7. they've been advertised for sale for about 3 months now. so i'll continue to watch the immediate market & see what it does. even if it drops a little, which i doubt it will, it's still a heck of a lot more money than it was 5 years ago.
