Might be a good time to bargain for property on Cumberland. They're draining the lake to repair the dam.

Have Funds, Will Retire

...not doing anything of true substance...

Umm.. would this property be above or below the old water line in that case? ;-)

Yes...definitely avoid riverfront property in a town called "Lake <something or other>"...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

At that price it sounds like a timeshare ... FWIW we completed a Moosehead Cedar Log home last year. The KIT was 96k (2200 sq.ft, includes pella windows and delta plumbing fixtures). Expect to spend 2-3X the kit price to BUILD (clearing, driveway, septic, foundation, well ...). Amenities (silestone, jacuzzi, ...) of course are extra. Forget about COPPER - you can't afford it - all plumbing is plastic.

Oh yeah, you still need to buy LAND ... good luck with that.
