Afternoon Home Loan Thinkage

New, 2 comments

Homeowners ditch their sinking ships homes when they're underwater. TheFrontSteps.com asks, is that even OK? Because people buy cars and those are worth less the second you drive them off the lot. "Is it because we’ve been conditioned over the years by the financial and real estate industries that homes are an 'investment' that will only go up? Or that homes are only worth it if we’re going to make a ton of money on them down the road? Call me crazy, but I think if you buy a house where you can afford the monthly payments, it shouldn’t matter at all how much your house is worth compared to what you paid." Crazy. [theFrontSteps]
