An Indian man is trying to pay off his $50,000 mortgage on an Airbnb property he bought for $2,000 in March.
The owner of the property, who is in his 60s, said he paid the mortgage on his own, adding that the money was used to pay his taxes.
He told the Mumbai Mirror he had used the money to pay for the construction of a new swimming pool, a new bathroom, new toilets and a new gym.
He also wanted a new house in the city.
But he did not tell his friends about the deal and did not share the details with anyone.
When he did ask friends, they told him he had done a “very bad thing”.
The owner said he had a loan from the National Bank of India (NBI) and was in a “good financial position”.
He also said he would not sell the property until his loan was repaid.
He said he was trying to keep his house in Mumbai but had been unable to secure financing.
