My NEW "LANDLORD" purchased where ive been renting, at a a sherrifs auction.
3 [three] weeks after purchasing the apartment, he sends a photographer to take photos of the apartment and then ask a relator to contact us to say "hes listing the apt for sale."

I would ask (1) r u looking to purchase for your mom (houses are available at $100 or less or (2) rent in an affordable senior housing development?

I am a SRES "Senior Real Estate Specialist" with 33^% of my business in this area. I also have a recent client who transferred her Mom from NYC to Northern Monmouth County to which I can refer you for advice . . . she ultimately rented affordable housing rather than purchasing.

Love and Peace,
