Default Don't let it go to market

You may wait a long time for a real estate listing. Find a place you like, rent it every year for longer periods of time. Have the boys send cards and letters praising the camp and great times they have there. After awhile you can offer to buy with a lifetime occupancy for the seller, reducing their time as you increase yours periodically. After awhile, you will all know it is inevitable that you will buy. If the owner has kids in California who think they will get rich on the sale when Grandma dies, be careful.
