Should I Buy My Friend’s Forclosed House? – Daily Dilemma
If your dream home hit the market, you'd scoop it up, right? What if it was a friend's home and the reason it's for sale is because it's in foreclosure? Is one man's loss another's gain, or is this taking advantage of a friend's financial troubles? What would you do?Here is today's Daily Dilemma:
We live in a two-bedroom apartment in Colonie. We are a young couple looking to buy a house. Well there's a place around the corner from us that's beautiful. It's a four-bedroom Colonial on a really, really nice lot. We've actually been IN the house a couple of times because we know the people! Well, it turns out that we just saw recently that the house is for sale, and we found out that it's a FORECLOSURE. I know we can get it for a steal, but here's the dilemma: We know these people! I feel it's taking advantage of their financial problems. My boyfriend says that one person's loss is another's gain. What do your listeners think?

The Daily Dilemma on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it, just e-mail us here at the show.
We would love to know what you think about today's dilemma -- should they go for the house or find another one out of respect for their friend? Leave your answer in the comments section at the bottom of this page and make sure you listen every morning at 6:40 a.m. to hear a new Daily Dilemma on WGNA.
