Land contract or try to sell?
Very new to this. My husband and his sister were left their mother's house in Detroit. its a very nice house (2+ bedroom brick ranch) in a not so nice neighborhood. Realtor told them it was worth $90k but of course not even a nibble at that price. They went as low as $60k and still nothing. Gave up and tried renting it. Of course the renter's were punks who we ended up asking to leave. (painted walls black and were growing pot in the basement and knocked out windows to vent plus more damage too numerous to list)
The half ownership with the sister is nightmare enough. So I'm wondering about how a land contract might work and/or rent with option to buy. I can't seem to find a clear explanation how either one works.
If this was your situation what would you do? We can't afford to leave the house empty but neither can we afford to not only pay the taxes and insurance on that house but bills too when he has to stay there to keep an eye on it!
