Rent: $80,000 ono Bond: $10,000 deposit
has a veggie patch, no tv


My best friend is a 75yo widow who has cancer and has had to leave her beautiful old Mallee family home to relocate closer to medical attention.

She acknowledges she will not ever return to it and is seeking expressions of interest to URGENTLY purchase on relatively flexible quick, or long settlement terms (120 days max) to facilitate her relatives removing her personal possessions.

The home would best suit a handy, happy, community-minded young-ish working family of tree-changers. Several different skills/trades are needed in town and the wider district, however getting regular work MAY be a little patchy, unless you are a carpenter, plasterer, builder, plumber, concretor, tiler, mechanic, dentist, nurse, PCA - if you have these trades, you will NEVER be out of work and will probably have TOO much work to handle!!

Seeking offers of around $80K. Deposit $10K
