I have bought a few cars and MH over the years in distant places. In all cases, we agreed to do an inspection (quick to extensive) in advance.

Once everything checked out we went to a pre-agreed bank (mine) and then either cash or Cashiers check was provided once a clear title was produced and notarized at the bank if required in the transferring state.

I did a similar transaction last year in Atlanta, was met at Airport with Car (truck actually), looked over paperwork and vehicle, went to Wells Fargo and hit the road west all within 90 minutes

$$$$

This is a touchy subject here in Central Jersey. In our county a certain religious group go to peoples houses and offer 30 40 even 50% in cash over the asking price.

These are houses worth 3 or 400,000 or more. What would you do.

Our house is currently worth about $700K - if someone wants to give me $5.875M for it I don't care what their religion is...


Everybody has a price!

Because of religious tax exemption they pay little or no taxes. Sooo, there is a lot of cash. When they decide to have an enclave somewhere they slowly but surely make inroads to that community.

That's by far the short answer. It is extremely complicated, and unsettling.

Its legal,they use the laws and rules to their advantage. Its a smart strategy to take that advantage.

You asked. Sorry folks.

What I would do is sell, sell, sell. Pay me 50% over actual value on anything I own you become the new owner, no questions asked.

When in life does the sentimental value of things transcend the monetary value?

Would a $100k offer change my mind? I do not need the money but that would pay for a semester in a 529 fund for a grandchild.

I owned a lakefront lot just down the road from where I live. I bought it for investment property. I kept it clean and even had dirt moved in free for a house pad. My son-in-law owned a large trackhoe and bulldozer. He was sloping neighbors banks so they could be mowed and giving me all the dirt.
All it cost me was yard upkeep and taxes that weren't that bad.

I'd have folks from time to time ask me if I wanted to sell the lot and I'd say no. This went on for several yrs and one day a guy drove up and asked if I would sell the lot. I said no. He asked, out of curiosity just what you sell it for right now. I threw out a figure that was well more that it was worth to me and he agreed to it.
So there went my investment lot but I did build a very nice boat house with swim decks and two boat bays with electric boat lifts at my house with the money from the lot.

So I sold the lot and increased the value of my home by as much or more than I sold the lot for and assume that I made a good investment.

Somebody tells me they have cash and offer what I want or more, I listen.
