Please pray for my DH and I - the city has sold the land our mobile home is on, and will move it to a new park, at our cost ($15,000 Canadian), but we'd decided we wanted our own property (so we wouldn't have it sold out from under us again!).
However, we found that there's a glut on the market of reconditioned mobile homes (selling for $19,900! how cheap is that?!), and it doesn't look like our home will sell.......

We have an angel in our midst who said she'd help with $5k, but unless the good Lord knows of a way we can raise the rest of the $25 (we need $20kmore) without selling our current home, we can't buy a house of our own.

We own the mobile home, but pay rent on the property ($525/mo). Moving to the park the city has designated isn't an option as it takes us to the other end of the city from both our jobs and, more importantly, our Church. We've been taking over from the Elders all the tasks they are unable to do anymore, so moving away from this church is not an option for us. They need us here!
There are so many others in our church that live in this park, too, so going to the church for help also isn't an option.

We can get a mortgage (don't know how much for, though), but can't afford to have both our current home's property rent and a mortgage. The trailer has to be sold, for a reasonable price.

We're at our wit's end....... Been trying to turn it over to the Lord, but I'm human and I sometimes slip.......

Please pray for us. We just want a simple home with a garden, near the church (within driving distance, anyway).

Update - the City hasn't bought the land they want to move our park to. The $40M hasn't been approved for the purchase.
The land they want to build the park on is next to a sour gas well.
They say 95% of the park's residents want to move and are happy with the new property. The residents at the meeting last night said "NO, we don't want to move."
A petition is going around for people to sign saying they Don't want to move. A journalist who lives in the park was at the meeting last night and she's going to write an article about what's happening in the park.

Yes, I do, Jaye.
The number of residents who Don't want to move, because they have all their community here, and all the facilities they're used to.......... well, I don't need to tell you that the city has a fight on it's hands.

I'm really pleased they're standing up for themselves. As one resident pointed out - they could have had one meeting and told everyone "here's your info package, and you're moving", but they decided to "divide and conquer" and have individual meetings with each resident. They didn't realize how much we talk to one another, and gather together in support of each other.

I know it's past time for us to move to a free-hold house, but the others who live here deserve our help.

Things are sounding promising for a good resolution. How will all this affect your going for your own home?

If the City has to back down from forcing people to move, then the value of our trailer will go back up.
It's time for us to be in a house of our own, and to own our property. Yes, we own the trailer, but not the property, and we're at the whim of the city. At least property taxes don't go up that much, but if the city wants to increase the pad rent, they could increase by any amount they want.......

We have the broker coming tomorrow, and we're really busy taking down things in the den (where I'm sitting hahaha), and it will increase the size of it dramatically!

Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers for us. We really want a resolution to the park moving (no one wants it to move!). Even the realtor is happier about it not moving.

A house would have a basement and therefore the size would increase. I need a "Crafts" room, and Bob & I need a computer room, plus a guest bedroom, so this trailer is getting a bit "tight" for space Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks again, Jaye, Linda, and Barb Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

Anyone - take a look at this one!
It's been on the market for 173 days (1/2 year), so maybe it's just waiting for us?!

Spoke to my realtor (Rod) about the place and they've just lowered the price, and it's still not in our price range. We thought it was close to being lowered, but that's not the case. The vendor's realtor says it's showing renewed interest. All I could do was wish the vendors Good Luck, and move on to another house. Actually, Rod said we shouldn't even think about putting an offer on a house until ours is conditionally sold.

Well, better get back to work packing..... packing......... packing.....

Cya lovely ladies!

Thank you so much, sweet sistahs. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby
Open House tomorrow afternoon, and we're going to take our cat, Baby, to be groomed during this time. I'll have to take some "before" and "after" pics, and you'll see why Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
I was just outside, prepping and prettying the deck. Couldn't find the cover and cushions for the 3-seater swing, so I just put some cushions on the seat and back. I spray painted the table and put up the umbrella. I swept it all off, and we've pretty much emptied the porch.

It's going to be a really nice and sunny day tomorrow, so I hope that helps!
Thumbs up

Disappointing Open House.
Only one curious neighbour and a competing Realtor.
