    This country is bummed out, sad sack city... dang it.

    I'm getting the feeling that most people feel an impeding dooooom..left & right

    When do you think some solid, unmistakable good news, for most everyone, is going to show up?

    I'm thinkin a good 4 years at least...

    Hey.. I'm willing ..granted, my house losing 70% of it's value sure sucked but I'm moving on, counting my blessings..

    It's the general gloom and doom on the USMB and elsewhere that sometimes gets me down..

    I don't know the exact details of your situation but "bubbles" are not real set or gauranteed values. There is nothing chiseled in stone about how much real estate should increase in relative value to the rest of the pricing in the world. All bubbles burst. The gamers know close to WHEN to sell. If you planned to stay in your house and never sell it ..you were in error looking at it as an investment.

    "Gloom and doom"???
    I moved my family from the midwest to the south in 1973 because as a stock broker I read and was sucked in by
    Harry Browne's (who lived in Zurich) 1970 book "How you can Profit From the Coming Devaluation".. who wrote the DJIA was going to collapse from 700 to 400!
    And the only solution was to buy golden eagles!
    And the only way in case of complete social/economic collapse to survive in the dead of winter where freezing to death during the would occur in the Midwest.. was move to Texas where at least my family wouldn't freeze in the middle of the day.. worst case!

    Since then.. DJIA Feb 17,2012 close: 12,949.87

    BOY WAS I WRONG!!

    Its a hard decision but likely a good one.


    Dont give up on owning a home.

    when we recover (we will recover) banks will gladly loan to you again.


    There are so many people in your situtation who are still good cradit risks for a bank that they will lend to you.


    Hang in there , this country is made of pretty tuff stock and we will be kicking ass again.


    I feel for ya man.

    Fear motivated you then.....and nearly 40 years later.....you are still afraid. How sad.
