Thanks again everyone! I am looking forward with both dread and anticipation to going up to sign the papers this week. I don't know yet what day it will be.

Congrats! Being in Raleigh, it's kinda neat that someone on a
forum I hang out in won the house!
We are kind of just going whatever way God points us (which is how we have gotten this far). We will be fine with living in it or selling it. You live in Raleigh? You don't happen to know anyone who is looking for someone in CAD do you?
I know there is an elementary school pretty much within walking distance of the house, so that would probably be the first place for me to apply.
According to an article I found today, the property tax is expected to be about $3,200. A lawyer told us today that the income tax could possibly be as much as 40% (but my dad said they should defer some of that and let us spread it out a little--I don't know anything about those things). My dad's last piece of advice was to read everything carefully because, "What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away!"
