I wouldn't touch the place with a 100ft pole.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
We were doing this CoOp/Rent-to-own under the table type of arrangement with a good friend of my mother in law. The place was spacious (3BR) but was falling apart, the only bathroom was cramped and old. Even if it was really spacious it was so bad for entertaining guests/family/friends because of the layout.
I hate to be self hating/racist against my own kind, but the worst kind of business you can do if you're filipino is with a fellow filipino who's semi-related to you. When it looked like we were about to be able to finally really buy the place the family friend/pseudo cousin started waffling on actually selling the place and when we showed her the contract we wrote up she started getting even more sketchy. I'm happy that we didn't actually buy it (but we were heavily saving money for the last 5 years on the assumption we were going to).
I'm happy I've got today off. I'm going to eat breakfast food for lunch at diner. I'm going to eat at the bar because I'm alone. I'm happy the wife arrives this weekend, but for the next couple of days I'm savoring the alone time.
