a mess. Sounds like its piers are sinking causing settling and uneven floors. Are they on concrete or, more likely, on mud?
The real question is how much could you sell it for? Figure out how much it will cost you to fix it THEN double or triple that because newbies almost always underestimate. Then subtract a hefty profit margin, real estate agent’s fees (if you need to go that route) and maybe septic, you have your final price you’ll pay for it. You might find a negative number in the answer.
Alternatively, if you bought the place and scrapped the home to replace it, you’d want to pay $5000 for the land (gotta make it worthwhile) MINUS the expense of junking that thing.
Some people I know would take $2000-3000 FROM THEM to help them out of their problem.
