Re: [dachshund-448] Hound Hotel - Landlord Died - Selling Home

I hope you get to stay! I passed this along to my landlord. I don't know what you are paying for rent, but it will probably go up no matter who buys it. 

Is it impossible for you to purchase it? There are all sorts of programs now for people who trying to get them into their own home. Even if you are lower income. 

I hope whomever buys it, if not you, will let you stay during the renovations and not jack up your rent too much. 

I still would start exploring your options. We just had to move out of the house I lived in for 10 yrs because it was being sold. It took me 1.5 months to find someplace in our price range that would accept dogs. I finally found a place in San Leandro. But there was nothing in Alameda, where I have lived for 16 yrs. :(

Warmest Regards,

Hey folks, I just want to keep everyone aware that our landlord died and the house (.64 acre) will probably be up for sale within the year (4551 San Pablo Dam Rd, El Sobrante 94803).  So, if any of you are investors,or know of an investor friend looking for investor property, now would be a good to consider purchasing this rental property. It has been rental property for the past 20 years. The executor just had it appraised; however has it appraised for $275,000.  The[masked]-bedroom (983sq ft) property is huge with a 2 car garage, a 3 car garage, a huge front yard, two huge side yards and back yard.

There are about $75,000 worth of repairs on this house (This house does not have insulation, has original wiring/would need rewiring, new roof is needed as it's starting to leak, ceramic kitchen tiles are missing due to cracking as a result of age and poor installation, oven does not work and the interior walls have minor cracks (living room and one bedroom) on them from earthquake shifting.)  So, you could probably purchase this for around/less $200,000 (I'm just estimating).  If you are interested, please contact me so I can provide the executor's name (wife).

Now, if the house sells to a private party (not an investor who would let us continue to stay here) and we cannot find another place for the Hound Hotel, I want to make everyone aware that I will have to close down our boarding services and revert to an in-home service program where we come to you.  Boo Hoo! 

But I will keep everyone notified of our situation.  Keep your fingers crossed. O course, if you purchase or refer the property to an investor friend of yours, you would get free dog boarding whenever you need it.).... we wuv your dog(s)/and consider you and everyone as family.

I want to thank everyone for your support of our services and look forward to hearing from you.,-el-sobrante,-c_rb/
