Our son, Jason, bought his first house last Friday. Because there are so many short sale and foreclosures in Ft. Myers, he was able to get a good deal. . . . and an $8000 first-time buyer incentive won't hurt. He was a little amazed at all the papers he had to sign before he got the keys, but once it was over, he was pretty happy . . . and tired. We helped, of course, although we left the unpacking to him.
Sorry to have had a lapse in posting, but I got very behind with helping him.
