I am not sure Carta has a bus going to Summerville anymore. They tried a few years ago to do an express bus from downtown all the way to Summerville via Dorchester but I heard somewhere along the way there were not enough riders to keep it profitable. The phone number for Carta is (843) 747-0922. You can call them to check for sure. I do know there is a bus for upper Dorchester but it only goes near the Air Force base and crosses over on Ashley Phosphate to the N Charleston area of Rivers Ave.

Carpooling may be the better option and there are websites where you can make requests to match up with people wanting the share gas expense and ride together. Try

Best of luck with your move.

Chris Drumming answered:
I feel the current huge amounts of foreclosures are due to several factors, and I know what I write now won't cover them all, but for starters no oversight by the federal government on some issues, uncontrolled lending practices, the over leveraging of the opportunity for making money in rising real estate prices. Some (NOT ALL) lenders, loan officers, realtors, appraisers, escrow companies, and title companies attempting to make huge amounts of money underwriting and selling risky loan products,with total disregard to ethics and, in many cases, the law, and borrowers accepting them. People receiving adjustable rate mortgages, just low enough for them to make the payments thinking they would get raises or better employment opportunities in the future, and not only in a lot of cases, did that not happen but because of the depressed economy a lot of people actually got laid off but still had mortgages to pay. ... more

Kevin and Julie McLaughlin answered:
Really depends upon the definition of 'approved' in your scenario. If the lien holder has previously approved the short sale and/or price... it could be 30-90 days.

If approved means you have the actual short sale approval letter from the lien holder(s); the letter will tell you when they expect the closing to occur. ... more
