My wife and her sister co-inherited their late mother’s house and arranged to sell it and split the proceeds. The sister lives hundreds of miles away, so my wife, as executor of the estate, invested time and money to make the house presentable to potential buyers.
The sister, on the other hand, wanted to sell it immediately in “as-is” run-down condition without using a real estate agent, and is extremely angry at my wife for not following that approach.
After several months on the market, we finally found a buyer for my mother-in-law’s house. But my angry sister-in-law is threatening to contest the sale as a way to punish my wife. The sister is financially well-off and doesn’t care if she loses her half of the money; but my wife and I are struggling, and desperately need the money to help pay off debts for our children’s college educations.
Please pray that my sister-in-law will be merciful, and refrain from trying to sabotage this sale that my wife worked so hard to bring to fruition.
Thank you all and God Bless!
