My mother's only asset is her home valued at $30,000. and her $997. monthly Social Security payment. No savings left, lives from SS check to SS check. My brother is planning to buy her house, and from what I hear it would be more advantageous if he is the caretaker and actually makes the purchase after she passes. At that point we could recoup maintenence costs for the home before the Pennsylvania Estate Recovery kicks in. Is this accurate? Any advice?
