Sunshine, surfing and sucking the Trump teat along the Carolina coast

A good financial planner worth his or her salt will tell you two things. Always have a financial reserve equal to six, eight or even twelve months in case of an unforeseen emergency. Unforeseen emergencies can include but are not limited to the sudden death of an income producing family member, a sudden change in employment ie. lost job or even the results of a natural disaster. That same planner will also tell you to always be careful when it comes to biting off more than you can financially (debt) chew. When self sufficiency is out of the question, there's always option 2.

The Scotch Bonnet dilemma

When former Governor Mike Easley of North Carolina bought into Cannonsgate in Carteret County years ago, a developer and or real estate broker got giddy. The purchase put prestige and a big commission into someone’s pocket. Easley’s .36 acre waterfront lot according to Carteret County Assistant Tax Administrator Ralph Foster, was valued at $1,198,245.00 one year later. Easley paid $549,880.00 for a patch of sand. Assuming the standard 6% commission, $32,992.80 was a nice payday.
