Need help or input on Mass. real estate - Posted by Barbara (ME)

My daughter, husband, and 13 yr.old son live in North Andover MA, and the house their apt is in is being sold from under them. They have been paying approx. $675 a month rent for years, both have excellent jobs, and have excellent credit. They want to stay in the town because of their son who is very active there, but have no money for a down payment as he is paying hefty child support to an ex. The houses in No. Andover are VERY expensive and I do not believe there are many motivated sellers, if any.
They have rented an apt. today for $1150 a month which offers much less room and less advantages than what they have now.
I would love to be able to help them get a house as they are just throwing money out the window with that rent, but I am in Maine do not know where to start, as it seems an impossible situation. Any input? Thanks in advance.
