"Young man recently restored from addict lifestyle had a heart dream of having his own house (but no money as he began a ministry school). Another couple in town had a beautiful guesthouse (with an amazing view) they used for missionaries but it was mostly left empty. One day they opened it to find 17 dead bats and realized that leaving it empty was resulting in it being run down. The young man was recommended as a possible trustworthy tenant.
On his return from a mission trip they practically begged him to occupy. He then found out they didn’t want to charge him rent due to the tax credits they received from the property being attached to their own. Even more so, they paid for all his utilities! Seven years later having paid no rent or utilities he was given the opportunity to purchase it… for free
After 7 years the older husband passed away and his wife went to live with family. It initially looked like the young couple would need to find another place to live, but they prayed and believed God to make a way. A few months later they were approached with the offer to purchase BOTH homes and ALL the property with an assessed value of $415,000 (low!).
However the asking price was only $285,000 because they wanted the guesthouse to be a ‘blessing.’ PLUS the family financed the deal at 0% (zero percent) interest for three years. During this time the young couple rented out the guesthouse that fully covered the mortgage, taxes and insurance. PL, Alaska"
