Found a house we like quite a bit. Size right. Geothermal already in place. Close location wise. Substantial hunk of change but doable - we’d have to carry two mortgages for a bit because our current place not ready to sell yet. We are sleeping on it but might move. Big money decision.
This is considerably removed from where I thought you were. I thought you were designing your own house and moving was on perpetual standby until assurance of non-hoarding.
On a more 'What's in it for me' note, will the Ligon Bed and Breakfast be open mid May?
That situation may be in flux to be honest. Because of a vacation in June/July we may have to do a bunch of stuff quickly.

As to the other plans, all plans entail tradeoffs and we have really struggled with a particular location / price equilibrium that this house hits - if barely.

So I haven't done mortgage shopping in 10 years or so. Are any of the online tools worth a damn (they weren't 10 years ago)? Any killer app for lending compare or is it still filter to a few and haggle over stated rate vs. fees included APR and points and other nonsense?

The latter is what I did but I don’t really know anything
