Depends on your take -- while I agree there is something a little "sentimental" thinking about an 80 year old single woman "moving up" to "home ownership" after about 6 decades as a renter, the financials of this are pretty nutty. Her new "maintenance fees" (co-op speak for assessments) are ridiculously high. Her thoughtless neighbor ought to rethink leaving a yappy dog penned up all day. Her luck with contractors sounds worse than I would hope for. For goodness sake wouldn't responsible remodeling contractor want to be sure she could enjoy her new shower ASAP...
