My old boss from the BBB lived in a Embassy Suites unit for 3 years. He had bought a house and then it did not pass inspection. There was all kinds of work that had to be done and it took the full 3 years. Luckily, he did not owe any mortgage payments during that time and the sellers had to pay for all the repairs and rebuilding. He paid $700 a month to stay at the Embassy Suites next to the airport.
Taking life one day at a time.
