You know, a hot real estate market is a great thing, if you are looking to sell. Not so much if you want to buy. I have a friend who is scouring the Wilmington NC real estate listings, trying to find a place to live, and everything is out of budget, even the 1000 square foot, three bedroom one bath dives. Nothing neat about that at all, but I’m allowed a pure rant now and then, right?
