Too low to consider, less than I paid 20 years ago. Honestly, that was still standing outside, which is at this point quite overgrown. She could easily have assumed that I trashed the interior .... but, no, she very much liked the hardwoods that are in the original 4 rooms. She didn't make another offer after seeing the inside, but did ask me to find out if my mortgage was assumable and to call her to let her know. I would certainly let her son in to take a look, if he is actually interested. He is a respiratory therapist and this location is very near many great hospital systems, and 3 minutes from the interstate so could be at several other hospitals within 20 minutes.... but could be that mama bear is wanting baby bear near and he has no intention of living down the street from his mother ....Wowee! And?!!!
She used to be in real estate, urges me to use a realtor, that it would be worth it. I said no, I had my long time guy out here and he is looking for lowball fast and I'm not desperate. Seriously, I should take a bath for the convenience of a realtor? His idea was more than 50k less than Zillow is saying!!!! why would I do that? Then commission and closing costs... puts me far behind the 8 ball vs very much above water on a sweet piece of land walking distance to an organic dairy and a brand new organic farm (with alpacas). Especially when he wants me to hire a landscaper, power wash everything, replace that, do this... no way. I don't hafta nothing for a cash buyer, didn't even have to send the dog outside.
This place is not for everyone, it would be a nuisance listing for a realtor, waiting for the person that it's right for (we bought this vacant home 7 months into its listing....) Plus, all the stuff he'd want me to do (time, effort, money). I totally get it, he doesn't want a listing that could languish for months, and while it's not his money and sweat going into it, why should he limit the requests that cause that for me?? There are hoops to jump through in traditional home sale and I don't happen to want to jump through them. This is not a normal home, these are not normal times, and I have never been normal.
I think the "cash buyer" thing is not well understood (I'm new to it, too, and digging it). She didn't seem to understand that I have had several in here, that "for show" doesn't mean for me what a normal listing would mean.
