Help Me Save My Twin Sister's Home
Here's the good news: I've managed to get a loan to buy it back!
Here's where YOU come in: Though I've negotiated a great price with the buzzards, I mean the bank, and can get the loan, I don't have money for the down payment and closing costs. Soooo, I'm asking you fine people to help me help my twin sister get back in the home she loved and literally hand-built.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart as I'm trying desperately to save my sister's home. Will you help me turn a true heartbreak into a true homecoming?
We literally just left our attorney's office with the keys. We've cried tears of joy all the way home and couldn't wait to unlock the house. We started a warm, homey fire, opened a bottle of cheap champagne, and wrote this update! We couldn't have done it without you. We can't thank you enough. We're eternally grateful for your kindness and generosity. Y'all ROCK!!!
Thank you again from the bottom of our little twin hearts!

ps: United Midwest Savings Bank, in DeGrass Ohio, now can go fuck itself!
Firstly, let me explain the "access issue". Unfortunately I cannot go into specifics, but based on an adjacent property dispute my parents have a lawsuit against UMSB ( the seller). That is the only detail my parents have given me permission to reveal at this time.
Now that brings us to the pertinent issue of the bank pushing to send -yet another- realtor to (what used to be) Crys' cabin. This time, we fear, it's probably to begin the process of listing the home since I've not yet held up my end of the purchase agreement- the one I signed months ago when I had mortgage financing secured through Fifth Third Bank. Based on previous updates, you already know that Fifth Third reneged on my loan at the last minute.
In summary, the bank is forcing my hand. It's "pee, or get off the pot" time. A new urgency is at hand. I've had excellent support and understanding up to this point from you wonderful donors and cheerleaders. We simply need to finish this so the house doesn't get listed and picked up by another buyer who already has the necessary money.
We can do this! I believe in you. More importantly, I'm thankful for YOUR belief in ME.
Crys is trying to sell some items (like a vintage camper, etc) so we'll feel comfortable that we have enough money to move forward. Just heard from my attorney (my ex husband) YESTERDAY that the seller (the original asshole foreclosure bank, lol) is willing to do a 5% second mortgage if the new lender will accept the 10% we already came up with. Everyone's motivated except the lenders at this point.
Thanks for being a part of this project. Thanks for caring and asking for updates. We're gonna get this done... Eventually!! Couldn't do it without your help. We love you!!

Chin up, peeps! I'm determined. No wonder Crys didn't want me to get her hopes up. Poor thing. What a roller coaster ride. Hang on tight. You've all given us so much extra fight!! We WILL finish this, thanks to you generous donors.
A Thoughtful Honest Ethical Intelligent Skeptical Thinker Do you own/live in a HOUSE? Would you be heartbroken if you lost it? What if you were powerless on your own to get it back? FLEX your heart muscle and help! I DID! and it feels awesome! There are rewards in the shape free e-books from @sherlockmichael & @GodDoesntMatter too! How cool is that?
