Man stunned big older sister’s ‘unreasonable’ financial demand: ‘Such a ridiculous request’

A man is refusing to sell his cabin to his sister who he originally bought it from.

He explained the situation on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum. When his parents passed away, they left him and his sister each one of their properties. He received the family home, while she got their lakeside cabin. The sister decided to sell the cabin, so he bought it from her. Now, years later she wants to buy it back at the original price. 

“While I am well to do, two of these properties came from my parents,” he explained. “My parents passed when I was 22 and they gave my sister the family cabin and I got the family home. My sister at the time was not financially stable and wanted to sell the property. Even though I was a fresh graduate at the time I did not want our lakeside home to be sold. I bought the house from my sister for around $100,000 and took out a mortgage on the house.” 

The cabin’s value increased over the years, but that didn’t matter to his sister.

“I have been doing well since and the property has appreciated nearly three-fold,” he wrote. “My sister is now in a more financially stable position and wants to buy back the house, except now she wants to buy it back at the price I bought it for. I told her no way that is happening. She got upset and told me our parents intended for her to have the house. She was not in debt at the time, so she did not have any reason to sell it except maintenance is high. I told her I would sell it to her at a discount price but not anywhere near where I bought.” 

Reddit users thought the poster had a right to increase the selling price.

“She’s being unreasonable,” one person commented

“If it were anyone else who bought it she would not make such a ridiculous request,” another wrote

“If she had sold it to some stranger, this question would never even be on the table,” a user said
