Well, NC is out, just too far for a weekend home for the next six years. But... I still want to take advantage of the interest rates and the values so we are now looking in southern costal Delaware. It is a little more expensive, but not much and only 3 hours from home.

I usually spend a week near Cape Lookout, NC each summer. I understand that the area was a cheap summer place for folks from NY & NJ & MA in the 1950s.

Last summer I was inside a summer home of a couple who passed away and their elderly children were trying to sell it. The heirs lived in the midwest and could not use the house as a summer home. The decor and personal effects were straight out of the 1950s with absolutely nothing changed. They had been coming down to this house every summer for 50 years. Total time warp.

So the idea of NC as a summer place for folks from NJ is ancient.
