My mom just moved into an assisted living home. Right now she is private pay spending down her savings. She has a home that we will need to sell. It needs a lot of work. The neighbor wants to buy it and flip it. A realtor appraised it at 60,000. Can we use his appraisal to sell it based on the price he gave us or do we have to get a private appraisal? The other houses in the neighborhood appraise for more, but my mom's house needs significant improvements. I know she will have to use all this money before she gets Medicaid. I just don't want her eligibility to be messed up when her money runs out.
