An 89-year-old woman was evicted from her home — then her neighbor bought it so she could move back in
If you need something to warm the cold cockles of your heart today, look no further: After a Florida woman was evicted from her home, her neighbor bought it and gave it back.
Several years earlier, 89-year-old Angie Tyma sold her home to someone who then became her landlord. But when the new owner suddenly stopped paying the mortgage, it went to foreclosure.
Tyma’s neighbor, Danielle Calder, decided to buy the house back for $167,500, after Angie had been leaving in Day’s Inn for three weeks.
Calder will now serve as Tyma’s new landlord.
Tyma moved back home on her 89th birthday, and she said it was the best birthday present she’d ever received.
Calder shrugged off praise for what she did. “It was the right thing to do. We’re family — the whole neighborhood,” she said.
