I have come to the conclusion that the houses that my father and I live in need to be either remodeled, where all of the insides are ripped out to the bare studs and outside walls, electrical and especially plumbing, everything completely redone, or they need to be torn down. They were both built around 1949-1950, and while the basic structures appear to be okay, they are worn-out otherwise. The sad thing is, what needs to be done to them, would cost way more than I could ever get back if I sold them now. A house across the street sold for only $16,000 last month to a rental company, that's down from the $20,000 they were going for a couple of years ago. This neighborhood has gone to crap, and it's not coming back.

So, until I can convince my father to move, I'm stuck here in these POS houses, which may mean I don't get out of here until after he is gone. He is too damned stubborn to realize when enough is enough, and that sometimes you just have to let go. Myself, my nerves can't take much more, later this year I plan on getting a real-estate agent to try and find me some land or a condo, where I can move to when the time comes. I've lived here most of my life, and it will be hard to leave, but I'm not staying here any longer than I have to, I refuse to keep fighting a losing battle, between the houses constantly needing some type of repair and bad neighbors, this situation is killing me.
