Son launches Web site to sell mom's home

He can't offer a vacation in the Bahamas or jacuzzis and other fancy upgrades.

Instead, California entrepreneur Christopher Laird Simmons is offering a virtual emotional plea , and hoping people would buy into it and snag his mom's Colonial Missouri home.

buymymomshouse.com is a one of its kind Web site that gives buyers a tour of the house, its history and the story of the family who dwelled in it. You won't get any freebies here, but a tale that probably would resonate with many in these tough economic times.

"My mother is on a fixed income, has no retirement income other than social security, and needs to sell this house to live on for the rest of her life, literally," Simmons writes.
