Controversy

This is really going to cause some very mixed opinions.  My opinion is going to be “FINALLY” we might actually start to recover from this mess!  Please take a minute to read how Bank of America actually may lead us in the right direction.  Here is the article.

I have been screaming that they(banks, FNMA, FHLMC) should make a “business decision” and reduce principal balances to stop the foreclosures.  Just think if they would have done this 4 years ago?  Values would have dropped 10%, maybe 20% at the most. The principal adjustments would have been 30% of what they have to be now.  Wait longer and it will have to be 30% more than they have to be adjusted now.

Some say “so you have to be a slacker to get help?” My answer is no, most people that are underwater and not making their payments are good people.  This will not only save them and keep them in their home but help every one’s value, if the foreclosures do not stop values will continue to fall, that helps no one!

Some say “what about us, the people who lived within thier means?”  The few people that lived above thier means were foreclosed on 4 to 5 years ago.  In my opinion the Real Estate bubble was created mostly by fradulant buyers and lenders and this created this entire economical mess.  Real Estate needs to be the vehicle to get us out of this mess.  This must start by stopping foreclosures by any means necessary.  If people are not confident that they will have a roof over their head next week, next month, next year, they will not spend money.  If people do not spend money, products do not get made, if products (physical and intellectual) do not get made, jobs are lost.  People do not travel if their worried that the locks may be changed when they get back home.   Housing = Jobs

  1. It’s an awesome article designed for all the online users; they will get benefit from it I am
    sure.

  2. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web will probably
    be much more useful than ever before.

  4. At this time it looks like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  6. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
    appearance. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

  7. Hi, I do believe this is a great site. I stumbledupon it ;) I will revisit yet again
    since i have book-marked it. Money and freedom is the best way to change,
    may you be rich and continue to help others.

  8. Great post. I was checking constantly this weblog and I
    am impressed! Extremely useful information particularly the ultimate phase :) I take
    care of such information a lot. I used to be looking for this
    particular information for a very lengthy time.
    Thank you and good luck.

  9. Valuable information. Lucky me I found your
    website unintentionally, and I am shocked why this coincidence did not came about earlier!
    I bookmarked it.

  10. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however
    I in finding this matter to be really one
    thing that I believe I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely large for me. I’m taking
    a look ahead on your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the hold of it!

  11. Hi i am kavin, its my first time to commenting anywhere,
    when i read this article i thought i could also create comment due to this sensible post.

  12. game game says:

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but
    after looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new
    to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  13. This is the right webpage for everyone who wants to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).

    You certainly put a new spin on a topic that’s
    been discussed for a long time. Great stuff, just great!

  14. Pieϲe of writing writіng is also а fun,
    if you know ɑfter that yoս can write or else it is complicated to write.

  15. Can I simply just say whhat a relief to uncover a person that genuinely knows what they’re disccussing
    on the internet. You definitely realize how to brinmg an issue to
    light and make it important. A lot more psople must read this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you definitely have
    the gift.
