  1. Well I am glad to see that all these bloggers are somewhat hope filled person. The last sweepstakes my God a lot of people were going through some changes at the end . Lord I hope that everyone is ok with not winning and that they will live past their trails . Seems like everybody is waiting on their personal dreams to come through. even though I speak faith over every sweepstake I am in my life doesn't hinge on winning. I want to make that I am keeping what I have intact. If I am moving anyway some of these cities and states I see through Hgtv I have had a chance to travel through them in videos and searching for info on them. I have seen some properties I have just fell in love with and the state too. I am praying that this property is my birthday present from heaven. I will hold to that until the fat lady singggs.

  2. Every time I start looking at all the different pictures I realize how much went into making such a warm, wonderful home. Soon it will all be over and someone will have this home for their very own. Thank you to all who have had a hand in the making of this beautiful home. Good luck to all. I love this home.<3<3

  3. This is the most beautiful home that has been done. Bringing the past and the present together is something I have always dreamed of. This house has been lived in with many wonderful memories and is now ready to make many more family memories. This is such a livable home. You have done a wonderful job, bringing this home back to life!

  4. TAXES and costs – appears some crazy numbers have been put out there! Just for the heck of it, I ran some numbers. Even if the property gives you a 1099 – for $463,000 – you pay taxes in the applicable brackets – federal tax would be $129,361, taxes in my outrageous state (CT) would be another $23,050. So the total income tax is $152,411 before setting a good CPA on the case. Still not a bad deal! The transfer tax in Carteret County is $926. they call it Tax stamps. Similar properties in the area have annual property taxes between $2500-$3100. Bottom line – if you are cash poor you get a mortgage for $160K and live in a property worth $463K…. KEEP THE FAITH – GOOD LUCK!

  5. Last vote in. Oh I so want to win this house. I will gladly pay the taxes. Good luck everyone and may the winner be someone who deserves it and really wants it. Me, I want it. As I travel to Mayo Clinic again tomorrow, if you pray please pray that my reports are good and I have a safe trip and watch over my dad who is not going with me. I really appreciate it and again GOOD LUCK B)
