My 80 year mom has been living with DH and I for close to a year now. She is not ever going to be able to go back to her home. I have talked it over with her and we are now in the process of trying to sell her house. It is 54 years old and is in need of some cosmetic work on the inside. Only asking $61,900 for a three bedroom house and adjoining lot. Have posted on Craigs list and also put a sign out front and let the Mayor of the city where she lives know that it is for sale. Today got second e-mail from a interested party and also a call from a City Council Member. Hopefully it will sell. With the money I would pay off a home equity loan of $48,000 and take my children and grandchildren to Disney World on a family vacation. I know the Disney trip is not the best thing to do in these financial times but somethings have more value than just the money spent on them.
Sell house, sell
