Went and visited with a lady who has emphazima (sp?) mid 50’s, been on disibility for 3 years now, etc. etc. I went through the home and was about to give her my card and say if something changes give me a call. She then says to me…“Do you have a minute”
Oh crap. “yeah sure I have a minute” She goes on and on about her life, her problems, literally almost in tears. She asked me what I pay for these types of homes and I told her in the 1500 dollar range. She was asking 6K. The conversation was a great one, polite on both sides, and she knew where I was coming from. She said if she could get 3K she would be happy. I stuck to my guns and told her that I hope she doesn’t get 3K but that she gets the 6K that she is asking…and that if something changes then she has an “out” She is moving at the end of the month so dead lot rent is on the horizon. She said that even though my offer is very low that she would give it strong consideration due to the circumstances.
I haven’t been through that type of situation yet and I’m happy and yet suprised that I didn’t “give in” a little. It was a toughie,
