RE: /gardening/the elderly and home sales...

I always hate to hear stories like that.  I'll be putting mother's home on
the market in Indy as soon as I finish making plaster repairs and repaint
the interior.  It worries me considerably that the insurance and utilities
continue to drain mom's meager resources.  I'm not going to be very picky
about accepting a reasonable offer.  The sooner it moves the better, for

It was in terrible shape when we got my brother removed from the house and
we've already done so much work on it, it isn't even funny.  Until dad had
his last stroke, the maintenance of the house was so well done, most folks
thought he had a professional come in and do the work.  He had put in
ceramic tile floors, the bathroom tiled and the kitchen "stove" wall tiled
and put up tiling behind the cabinets too among other things.  (O.K., so he
was a perfectionist.)  He used to refinish the wood plank floors on a
regular basis and wax them well at least twice a year.  I can't do that!  

Mardi, what has you mom done to try to get the property to move?  I take it
the realtor wasn't the problem?

Ceres, this sounds WAY too familiar.  I moved my Mom to Iowa City in Nov
'02 and the house in Park Forest (near Chicago) hadn't sold by Nov '03.
So, she did move back, and is there now awaiting an offer...
At least her garden has been moved - to my yard!  Just glad it is outside
and not considered clutter inside!
