Checking in cause it has been months. We've been battling the crunch and the dwindling as many others here in So. California. Afraid our dream is getting further and further away only we are going to be in Show Low where we want to build sooner than we thought too. Still maybe a few years before we'd start our log home though. Home currently for sale with an offer. Praying for the best cause I will not imagine it getting any worst...

Still waiting for the written approval from our 1st TD lender on our home on the short sale. The 2nd TD holder already approved it and will expire the end of July. Things are happening really fast yet kinda backwards. Hubby heading to Show Low in a few weeks for job interview. We are praying for the best. Have to start packing too. Moving out of this house we've had for almost 20 years, raised 5 kids (blended family), and had two grandbabies born here, is hard on the heart. Not the way we planned it but going in the direction we've prayed for since the day we were married. Hubby wants to search more at log home builders. We were planning on using Golden Eagle because their package is more complete, my husband liked the logs they used, yet the cost is so huge compared to many others. Won't have as much $$ as we planned a few years ago to build so...

Hey folks, join 90% of the people who are members of this group. I happen to live in Sarasota FL which is among the highest hit groups in the real estate market "crash". A couple of years ago we were happy campers thinking that we soon would be building on the 3 plus acres we had bought in NC. We had all kinds of great offers for our house, our investments were growing and then reality hit. Today, our house is 36% less than "in the good old days". and our savings are down by almost 50%. So we sit, waiting for the great turn around.

The good news is that it looks like there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Here in Sarasota, the glut of cheap stuff is starting to sell off. Prices are starting to pick up by a little and our savings are starting to show some positive growth instead of the negative statements we have been looking at for months. Our hopes and wishes are slowly returning. Maybe, just maybe, we can return to our original plans to sell in Florida and build in North Carolina by mid 2010.
So, my message to you is... keep the faith... it's getting better and you will be moving into your dream home soon.

Ted
