Foreclosure

So why are we house hunting? Our landlord (scam-artist extraordinare) apparently bought 8 townhouse units in our community (among many others). He took out "loans" from several banks and never paid any of his mortgages or HOA fees. He just sat back, collected rent, and is now being forced to foreclose on all of the places he bought... our place is one of them.

At first our attorney said that we had until the end of the year to move out... but now our landlord has to face federal court. This means his case will be expedited because he has no defense... We might have another 2-3 months in our townhouse before the bank makes us move out. SOO-- we need to find a house. F.A.S.T.

I am excited about buying a house. Joe and I almost became home-owners while we were living in San Diego. We wanted to buy this cute condo in Rancho Bernardo... But something in Joe's gut said that we weren't ready to make that step yet... Good thing too because I think that condo would have gone up in flames with the Witch Creek Fires last October.
