She should have saved $70 a month ( or less than $20 a week) from living rent free she would have had the $7500 to buy the home.

Just Dumb...you let some one else by you out a place you could have owned for dirt cheap...now you have to pay rent....

People are acting like she did something wrong and even somebody called her a "welfare freeloader." Please, rich people get free stuff all the time. She didn't do anything wrong. She was never evicted so she didn't leave. She tried to buy the house. She could have fought the sale with squatters rights. She didn't hurt anybody and she didn't do anything wrong. People just mad because they have to pay rent and she didn't. Life's rough like that. Doesn't make her in the wrong that she got something you don't.

The house should be hers if she has lived there that long.

Good case of being irresponsible. No different than stealing. Using something and not paying for it. Would you go into a store and if no one was paying attention walk out with a cart full of food. Same with this house no one paying any attention so stays for free, the normal American would never do this. What a terrible example for her children. I'm sure she thinks she did nothing wrong. MORALS she has none, bet she doesn't go to church either and if she does she's just a hypocrite

What happen when the real estate co. went under?. She had to find other work to keep lights/utilities/NEW washer & dryer so I'm guessing she was making money? maybe she wasn't making enough to save I kind of doubt it who knows, she was lucky & in our eyes she should have been saving the $$$$$ just in case someone came knocking & they did fate was on her side.

The video says she did attempt to buy it at $5000, but it kept being kicked off the table, then went up to 7,500, which she couldn't afford. So she did manage to save 5000 to try and buy it

Good! I don't think Blacks should be paying taxes period. Considering their ancestors history in America. I hope alot of Blacks get some free services in America.

I wish I could do that. I have had to work 2 jobs for 9 years and supported myself and others. It boggles my mind that she got away with it. I wish I could have that luxury

12 X just $500 a month = $6,000 ... umm times 9 years is $54,000. You couldn't come up with $7,500? Damn.
iesha Official (2 months ago)
Haters lol how is that a good ending?
R M (2 months ago)
Yeah, I would think she'd have a little something to buy the house with. No mortgage or rent payment for 9 years? You really start to save up when you are living rent or mortgage free.

Why are companies in Singapore buying houses in Random City, USA?
justsue (2 months ago)
SINGAPORE OF ALL [email protected]@ Dumb as comment. Smart Singaporean buying up land one by one. Stupid woman cannot save such a small amount to buy security for her future. Americans will be first to moan as your country will be own by Asian one block at a time.
Natasha Trendell (3 months ago)
Wait, why are foreign companies allowed to buy residential housing? No wonder our country is on a downward spiral, this causes the loss of a sense of community.
Nesanet Lehulum (3 months ago)
Folks, don't be opinionated, we do not know the whole story, as to why she was not able to pay the 7500.
dotunn (3 months ago)
Lol at the presenters, you can see Gayle about to rain curses on that woman for not saving all this while, but they just keep it in check and act like it’s all cool. 😆

Linda Lopez (3 months ago)
They should if sold the house to her along time ago when she was able to afford it but they cept pulling it until she couldn't the was there idea they could have helped her now after 9 years gona pay rent BS they just can't see good people owen anything.

So happy for her! everyone else should be too! she deserves it!
Anon73618 (3 months ago)
I would've done the same thing. But at the same time saved up some money, as you could be thrown out any minute. 7500 is dirt cheap. Children or not, that's nothing. She probably didn't care to work thinking she could live there forever or blew it all on useless stuff..
Jill HHB (3 months ago)
What?? oh media people how is this a good deal for her?? Depends on rent! Question if she CANNOT buy it at 7,500--how is she gonna pay rent?! goodness

Makeda (3 months ago)
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. 🤔🙏🏾😊🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🙅🏾‍♀️

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.

LymonSkye (4 months ago)
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!
