I have a problem. Every time I go on vacation I decide I need to become a local... literally. I check out the nearby real estate market and seem to always find a deal that "shouldn't be resisted," "can't be passed up" and "won't be around again." Cape Cod had me yearning for a little bitty cedar-shake covered cottage by the beach for "investment purposes," of course. Take me within 20 miles of any lake in Wisconsin and I'm furiously searching the MLS for deals. Lately I've been dreaming of a little house by the sea here in the Monterey Bay area.
This little beauty is for sale across the street from our rented cottage. It's a block to the beach heading right, and a block to downtown heading left. I'm rather thankful my last name is not Trump or by now, I'd have so many little bits and pieces of property strewn across the continental US that keeping track of them would be a full-time job. Does anyone else do this? Is there a cure for it?
