Default Bananas Will Be Gone

I know I've been kinda sparse here lately, but taking care of Mom has taken almost all of my time. She died 1/12/14 at the age of 93. We're going to have to sell the house, the quicker the better. Since I have no idea where I'll be, I'm giving my plants to members of my local 'dctropics' club. I'll still pop in here every now and then as there are a number of good friends I don't want to lose contact with. Thanks guys. All the best.

Stay in touch if you can. We all know how much a loss can affect us and hope you don't have a difficult time with the situation. Your mom had a long life with you there for her, thanks for sharing this with us.

Looks like I may be buying a small apt. in Leisure World with my inheritance. With no mortgage or rent, and a $600 monthly co-op fee, should be able to make it frugally. Problem- no place around the apt. to garden, as it's on the 3rd floor. Has an enclosed balcony, but that's unheated. I hear there is a community garden, but its not the same as having a 1/3 acre yard with my koi pond, plants, etc. Oh well, we cope. I'll probably have half the place filled with plants.
Thanks to all of you. I'll stay in touch.

Try to avoid Leisure World; those fees will eat you alive. Do you have to be spitting distance from DC? (LW is not.) Have you checked out townhouses? Really looked outside the area? Searched realtor.com ruthlessly?

Ages ago when I sold RE I had a client who could not afford SS/TP/etc. They found a new townhouse near Fort Meade for which I wouldn't earn a commission; I was fine with that since they'd become friends in 6 months of looking. (Lots of authentic Indian Sunday dinners at their apartment.)

My clients were so ticked that they refused to sign the contract until the agent found me another client. Just so happened an older couple had visited earlier looking for a used TH. My customers waited while I showed a house I'd never seen! That evening my friends had purchased a new house and I'd sold an old one because the sellers were leaving an old upright in the basement. Strange day.

What about Laurel? Find a creative agent. Please don't throw in the towel without exhausting all hopes of finding a little bit of land that's yours.
