A woman in her mid 60s inherited enough cash to purchase her first home. She had $80,000; however, it’s difficult to find a house for that price in her home town of Nashville. Enter William Willoughby, broker-owner at Music City Group Real Estate in Nashville, who came through for this buyer by finding a little HUD home that needed a water heater and other renovations. It was a good brick house in a nice neighborhood, but he just couldn’t put her in the home, shake hands, and say good-bye after the closing.
