Ok, I'm kind of back... We put an offer on a foreclosure yesterday. It's waterfront, which would be SWEET, but it needs a little work. and we have arranged a short term rental... Hard to do that stuff during the holidays, but we got it done.
Will update everthing in next half hour.
(Cellodave - I'm in the Lake Norman area of NC ( halfway between Charlotte and Winston-Salem, NC), and we have a great local real estate agent. Thanks for the offer, though).
