And crazy price drop of the month, the previously profiled 4300+ sq.ft. canal home that started at $1,199,000 last June posted it's 29th teensy price drop this month to bring it to a still-too-high $979,000.

There are plenty of others out there but I thought these would be interesting. As I've mentioned in recent posts, if you're not paying cash, be prepared to pony up more than you thought for a down payment. Talk to a lender now to find out what may be required of you for a mortgage, especially if it's a condo, AND, pray for warmer weather.

Well he who waits for the day's riches will be lost
In the whispering tide

Where the river flows

Tomorrow never knows
