A 92-year-old Ohio veteran won't be evicted from the house he built after all. John "Jack" Potter's daughter has accepted an offer for Potter to buy his home back using money raised through crowdfunding.

Potter's granddaughter Jaclyn Fraley posted an update on their gofundme account Friday stating Potter would be able to stay in the house in Zaleski, Ohio.

Potter's daughter, Janice Cottrill, served him an eviction notice in February after she allegedly used her power of attorney privileges to put the 56-year-old home in her name.

Cottrill hasn't spoken to media about the situation.

Fraley told Potter's story online and raised $137,008. Initial offers to buy the house — both above market value — were rejected.

In an interview with ABC News, Fraley wouldn't reveal the final offer, but said it was "five figures" and above the last offer of $60,000.

"It's his home and he can look at it and know that it's his," Fraley told ABC. "It's crowdfunding at its finest."
