Taking Offers end at 6 pm tonight and is selling cheap. Highest offer gets it.
That is what happens when family get greedy.
If I had of came up with two thirds of the money, I would have bought them out, cleaned the place up and resold it even though it i is breaking my wife's heart.
The farm should have been auctioned but we had no choice.
Every time this happens a little bit of all of us die. Our parents and grandparents legacy, everything they toiled for.
Most people today give 2 shits less about the land and what it means.

The END!!!!
I went to an auction today...
77 acres of farmland went for $379,000 or $389,000
I can't remember which
Amish bought it without the house.
one barn had 3 decent looking wagons with running gears and wood floors brought $35 for everything in the barn.
The house sitting on 1/2 acre lot brought $47,000 separately.

Amish have bought these 96 acres also. $211,000 That was $2200 an acre.
Dirt cheap for this farm. After this we won't have to see or speak to the family again.

The END!!!!
There was a plus 10% fee on top of the selling price
$389,000 plus $38,900 equals $427,900

I'm pretty sure it was $389,000 then the 10% added to that.


.

I hate to hear about the family being divided, but death and money make for bad situations, and it doesn't have to be that way,
but unfortunately is usually does happen.

They bought it at a bargain.

Beat case scenario, the purchaser got a 2k and acre bargain…the family is worth more than that as ugly as they may be….I hope y’all can move on and past this is the best way possible.

It is probably best you don't read this.
10 years ago, I could have written them a check and moved on, but things have change. Banks I have dealt with for years seem to turn their backs on me. They don't look at what you have accumulated over the years, they just look at taxes and want to see that you are making big money. I also think my age and they know our health is not the best and the banks turn away on that. My credit is good and payment history is great. Plenty of clear collateral to boot.
The sister and her husband won't work and us taxpayers are taking very good care of them.:mad:
The brother thinks he is handicap from his back and always parks in the handicap parking spots and there is nothing wrong with him.
He was in the National Guard and was called to go to Afghanistan, but he used his kids to get out of the Guard telling them he was needed at home to take care of them. I still don't know how he did that because he had just signed up for more years, He took the cowards way out when it was time to go.
They would not help clean the place up or help with the small loan payments, but it put a strain on me and my wife to do that. I had to pay a chunk of money to keep/ get that farm out of foreclosure and pay up the taxes from where her sister had power of attorney. The sister would not tell my wife or brother anything while she was in control and just let things go. Before the mother died the farm was headed to the Court House steps over a $29,000 loan. After she died the sister lost her control and was mad as heck. She had a realtor tell her it was worth $1200 an acre and she had done made arrangements to sell it to a Amish man at that price. Lucky we could put a stop to that.
Me and my wife are the only ones to clean out trash. I hauled 5 loads out in one days alone and the other two have yet to pack out one single bag of trash. But they could load up anything that may have been worth something.
I could really rant on and on

Working with the siblings was like working with kids. They wanted what they could get easily without working to get the most.
I have never had anything handed to me but the little money we will get will be the first time for me. I have worked years ago sharecropping on this farm and gave half the money away to her grandfather.
By the time Medicare gets their share and the bank payoff there will some money left. They will take their money and buy cars, trucks and junk and blow that money quick.
I was working on getting the money to buy them out at an agreed price at around $1800 an acre. Then an Amish man visits her sister and offers them $1400 an acre and he would have their money in a few days and the two siblings was ready to yank his arm off and take his money. I quickly put a stop to that.
It is funny how families are different. Her family is greedy, and my family don't have much but will give you the shirts off their backs.
When someone in my family gets sick my family will throw what money we have together and help them out. If someone in my family wants something I have I will give it to them.
My wife grew up at that farm and it meant a lot to her so I am going to dig her up a barrel of topsoil from there and bring it home so I can tell her she still has a piece of that farm. If we decide to bury when that time comes, I will put that barrel of dirt on her grave. If we go with cremation, I will mix her ashes in the barrel and wait until I die and put mine in there to and my son is to take it back on my farm and dig a hole or scatter it on my hilltop.
Moving on is right but you leave them behind and forget about them.

I doubt if you are "Rid of Them" kinfoks like That will always hang around like DamBuzzards waiting for a handout. Most everyone here probably has some Buzzards hanging around.

That whole situation is a damn shame. I do hope ties are cut permanently moving forward.

Happened on my dads side of the family in the 90s. Dad came from a family of 10 kids. Granny died first in the 80s. Then grandpa in the 90s. Dad became exct 0f the estate. Out of the 10 dad was only one who actually farmed the farm. Tobacco and cows. Split 50/50 with grandparents. But others in the family hunted and fished the farm. Once grandpa passed then became the pissing contest. 6 wanting to sell 4 wanted to keep it. Some of us grandsons that fished hunted plus myself working it wanted to buy the ones wanting to sell buy them out of their share. NO WAY ones wanting to sell wouldnt sell to family. They knew they get better price if sold by agent. 6 to 4 vote dad was forced to sell. It sold all 10 got their splt. 5 out of the 6 bitched they didnt get enough money. Dad said divided equal. Till this day there are some on the selling side I dont talk to. Some grandson that wanted to buy in dont talk to them either. We dont concider it a great loss by not talking or being with them at all. Just made us move on and forget about them.

I told my wife if or when something happens to her, I darn sure won't be letting them know about it. She agreed with me on that.
As far as we are concerned, they are not kinfolks anymore. This scab will never heal. Any of them ever show up at my house they will hit the road fast or get stomped to the road. We will shun them worse than Amish do when they kick someone out.
