SOLD! Carlisle House-Pennsylvania

“Their Win is YOUR Win!”

The current owners of the Carlisle House hit the PA lottery for a bundle (really!) and are now ready to let you enjoy the good luck as well!  They are motivated by their desire to retire and dropped their price to well BELOW the valuation…even though their profitability continues to grow!  And may participate with some seller financing as well!  Love that lottery!
