Home for DadWe are considering buy a home for my 82 y/o dad. He is currently living in a remote location that is 40 minutes from a 911 response and 4 hours from us. We live in an adult community in Salem. A home for Dad in this community will probably be in the $150K range. He will get some cash out when he sells his current place and I have and 800 credit score and enough income to help buy a house. Would it be best for Dad to buy or rent? Would it make sense if I bought a house and used some of his cash form the sale for the down-payment? How can we work together to buy a house without creating a tangled mess when it comes to settling his estate with other family members?November 27 2013 - Salem00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
