Please Save Our House

My name is Rod Keele. This is my granddaughter, Tabitha, and her children. Two of the boys are on the spectrum, one ADHD and one severely Autistic. Their father [Tabitha's husband] died unexpectedly in 2019 leaving her a widow at 38. To Tabitha's credit, she took her husband's entire death benefit and used it to put a downpayment on a house in Lake Havasu City. The realtor referred her to a 'house flipper' who promised in-house financing for two years -- after which she was told she would have no trouble securing a loan if she made her payments of $777.00 faithfully. The title company and the 'flipper' both insisted she would find her credit rating acceptable after two years had passed and she would be able to secure a loan for the remaining balance of about $140,000.00. She never missed a payment for two years. At the end, when the balloon payment hit and she was supposed to be able to secure a loan for the balance on the house, she discovered her 24 months of timely payments were NOT reported to the credit bureaus as promised her -- and the 'flipper' who had sold her the house was more than ready to repossess it. He and the loan servicing company began rejecting her payments.The house is worth over $300,000. She even found someone willing to loan her the money -- but the 'flipper' had already put it back into his name, precluding that from happening. The house is to be sold out from under her and her children on December 2, 2021, leaving all of them homeless and losing forever the $150,000.00 death benefit intended to provide them a permanent home.

If people will step up and assist Tabitha in securing the remaining balance for the home, she will use the house for the collateral she needs to secure a loan to repay each and every contributor to this GOFUNDME. We are willing to put this in writing and secure a special account here in Lake Havasu City for the proceeds from this and any other charitable endeavors that might be willing to take on this most crucial cause.

Thank You for reading. We hope to hear from you.
