A lady that I used to babysit for when I was a teenager still lives on the street where I grew up (my parents still live there) well they are getting ready to buy a condo and offered us her house for $180,000, this is a phnemonal deal, thehouse is 3000 square feet, 4 bedrooms, a sunroom, huge backyard,nice front yard. I feel like we just cant turn it down. Problem is we cant get financing b.c of our debt so they are not only willing to rent to us for a year while we pay it down but they are willing to refinance the house to get the rent down to $1000. We pay $1600 a year for a 2400 sq. ft. house with 3 bedrooms and a crappy yard, although its in a great subdivision and we will miss that.

Can you get that in writing AND notarized or legally signed with a lawyer present? I don't mean to sound nasty or anything, but in something such as this, where financial and life choices are involved, it's best to protect yourself and your family.

Wow. That would be an awesome deal. I think Kraze is right, though, you need to be careful and be sure. It sounds like they are old family friends, though, and want to do something nice for you. Is the house in good shape? You don't want to buy someone else's problems.

They are old family friends and I dont think we have anything to worry about but we will get it in writing. the house is in great shape. they did a $70,000 add on about 5 years ago with the sunroom, a fullbath downstairs and a 2 car garage. It really is just perfect.

Then I think that you should follow your head/heart/feelings and take the chance if you feel that it's the best chance to upgrade for your family. Also, the 'savings' of $600 a month to go toward your debt would be excellent - if you're already used to paying that amount, just continue to put the extra towards the debt.
