Don't hate, knowing good and well you would most likely do the something similar if given the circumstance, sheesh who TF really wants to pay rent man?! It's okay to be more for the people and less for society all the time, but hey that's my opinion. 🤔🙏🏾😊🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🙅🏾‍♀️

Smart investments from the Singapore company, what about if they don't find anybody to rent it later after kicking her out 🤔💁🏿‍♂️

So, the good ending is *no more free rent* for the poor family? Seems like the good part is over.

Each time she tried to buy the house at the auction block it was pulled off the block for "no apparent reason". I'd like to know why this was done.

She did nothing wrong. It was the company's fault, but I would save as much as possible just for a safe nest.

Let's do the math shall we. 9 years free, 12×9=54,000. Good deal! But, they needs to bill her for taxes not paid. Her kids went to school for free. How is that fair for her neighbors.

Let me get this straight. She had all of those years to at least pay something into a savings account as if it where a rent payment so that she could have had enough money to buy the house when it did come up for sale, but she did not do that? That makes me feel a tad bit angry. Foolish decision. Very foolish!

WHEN U BECOME A PARENT U MUST THINK ABOUT SECURITY FOR YOUR CHILDREN AS WELL AS YOURSELF AND WHEN YOU SEE AN OPPORTUNITY U HAVE TO TAKE IT. I KNOW SOME KIND OF MONEY CAME THRU HER HANDS IN 9 YEARS, INCOME TAX OR SOMETHING.

Corrupt system out to control humanity. It's about time the public get together and unite in ridding the elite. Jesus and other prophets were right, the money lenders will ruin the world. Bankers, pharmaceutical companies, insurance and government all need hanging. Its about time we took back our world

This is good because this family needed a place to stay. I hope all homeless people starts doing this.

Pale skinned people have and still does this too. (Not all of them) I'm not that shallow.

Maybe, I don't know, isn't this a case of "just because you can doesn't mean you should". What is good about teaching kids to take advantage of a free ride? And no tax payer dollars involved?
Mark Cleveland (1 month ago)
No offence she didn't stack while living there rent free just putting away 300 a month she could have bought it cash then took a loan on the equity and did the repairs and paid that man I'm not the smartest cookie in the jar but when I get a lick I take advantage of it but I rarely do but when I do I come up.

give this woman the damn house. if she wasn't there, the city would come in and mow the house down. this way the woman has a place to live with her daughter. looks like she took very good care of it. of course she couldnt get the roof fixed..if someone helped her, then I feel she could do alittle drywall her herself, like some patch work. If I had money I would by the darn house and give it to her. Im sure their will be lots who dont like my comments of helping this lady.. But ya know what? this just shows the greed that rules this country. my husband always says. Greed if the root of all evil.. people wants money, yet they wouldn't help a person out if they needed money. Look how many greedy people in the city, state, gov. they cake our money but they wont do a thing to help. God Bless...

All these homes with all kinds of homeless. Just one more of these gifts the media gives to stick another knife in ya and twist. Great job media now that it's not free and all those homes rotted for 9 yrs, except one of course. And as for her $7,500. And her daughters play room is sad considering rent free living. This must be ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE FAKE STORIES TO TICK OFF THE MASSES. DO THESE INTERNATIONAL BANKER OWNERS AND THEIR MEDIA WANT PEOPLE TO BEAT THEM UP?

We have more houses than homeless people. There is a stat saying there are 5 homes to 1 homeless person. We could put a group of them in a home and keep them off the streets. You know how much we pay the police to deal with homelessness? hospitals for weather related issues. We could make so much money with redoing this old, forgotten homes

Did she have a job to pay for utilities? Doesn't have $7500.00 after 9 years? Mmmmm.....I smell illegal poopy.

I don’t like how a city has control over homes. Also don’t like we are selling America to the Chinese. But cmon folks what would you do never pay rent. But with 9 years of saving she should have had that money

The only thing I can say is that was good for the kid that the kid didn't have to live in care or be homeless because the mum didn't save up €70 per month from what would have been €1000 average price rental. But then again, we don't know that mother might be having issues with addiction (and that's where the moneys going). But in any case what kind of example can you set to a kid in this environment? It's not realistic, cause you can't ride through life getting things for free. The house looks like it needs alot of repairs.
Donna Lopez (1 month ago)
All she would have had to save was like 70 dollars a month for the last 9 yrs than she would have had more than enough to pay 7500. Nutts

That interviewer is the opposite of miracles I feel like. He almost tried to make her feel bad about getting a free gift. Anyways I am happy she created a moment like this and she could teach others how to attract good things like this.

Her boss went to jail for mortgage fraud. Even before they announced that, you could tell by her face: she knows good and dam well she's not the only one living for free.

She lived in it all those years for free and when it was for sale for only $7,500 why didn't she buy it? She it was too expensive.really? Guess she thought she would get it for free.She should've been putting money back to buy a house because she should've known it wouldn't last forever.She was being greedy.Hope they want high rent and when she dont pay it they evict her
