Thanks for all the info OSO'ers. I am actually headed down there on Friday to sign my life away on my new boat at Village Marine. I just got off the phone with Terry from www.summersatthelake.com and he is going to show us a couple of houses so i can get an idea of how far my dollar will go. I am seriously considering buying a place this winter... may not need the rental after all, here is my options. I got a new boat. My wife wants an inground friggin' pool 35-50K. I think I am selling her on using that $ for a down payment, at least the place at the lake will gain in value somewhat instead of a depreciated hole in my backyard. I have until April, if I don't find a place for this money... I WILL have a hole in my backyard for sure!
