Maridor B&B in Roanoke up for auction

auction site here

 

"Jonna McGraw says, "The property is not under distress.  The owners work full time jobs in addition to running the bed and breakfast."  I think this is what we mean by distress, that is WHY they are working full time jobs. hm,,,

Beautiful property...but I can't imagine having the the time to dust it all, let alone hold down a full time job outside of the inn!!!

Is it really an auction when you have set a floor price? My guess... even at the floor price, it won't go.

Yes...but they are hoping for a bidding war...WON'T HAPPEN.  People want deals they don't want to pay asking.

Drooling over the furnishings, and Colonial Revival is one of my favorite building types.  Looks gorgeous.  Hope the owners get what they need, and the new owners treat the place with love and care.

Not to take away from the auction info but this is why we always tell innspirings to be sure they can do everything that needs doing. Obviously working 2 FT jobs AND running an inn is not working for these folks for whatever reason.

I have friends who work several other jobs besides running their inn and their schedules require a huge calendar so they each know where the other one is at any time!

The owners might be in emotional distress, but the property isn't -- meaning that it's not in foreclosure, or likely to be a short sale.

There is a neighboring B&B 25 minutes South of Roanoke for sale in Rocky Mount Virginia here. Turnkey, still operating. Page down for photos.
