We're never going to move. My family is being punished because we did the right thing. When millions of Americans are either helped by the government, or graciously walking away from their credit disasters, millions of home buyers are benefitting from the foreclosures. So, since I have money in the bank, tons of equity in the house, I have to sit. After all, why would a buyer want to buy a house that wasn't a foreclosure? They said it on the news, so it must be true
I hope that Americans saved their money. It sure sounds like it would suck if the deal of a lifetime fell into your lap and because you used your credit cards too much, and because you maxed yourself buying a fancy car, you can't qualify for the loan of your dreams. That would suck. The news said people can't get loans anymore. It must be true.
I didn't max my credit cards. I didn't overextend my credit. I didn't take fancy vacations. We paid our loan and saved every penny. So why am I having a bad time?
It's because "buyers" are under the false pretense (thanks media) that homes are going to fall from the sky now. Homes with Viking appliances and granite counter tops. Sheesh, everyone watches A&E...what happens on "flip this house" must be true. It's on TV after all..
I should be able to make millions of dollars instantly on the NYSE. That's "day trading" right? You're F'ing up the market for the rest of us.
Wake up America! Be responsible. Money is not meant for idiots. That only happens on TV.
(Well friends, I am sorry it had to come to this. I am fed up with trying to sell this house. If you fall into any of the categories above, well shoot. Sorry about that. Hope you keep coming to read Luggage Land...you never know what's going to happen next!
I guess this all started when I was fighting with my sewing machine last night. It's fixed now, but while looking for parts, I found a bunch of pretty bitchin' craft supplies I forgot about. Forgot about them because I had to stash them away so I could host walk through after walk through... every day when I start my cleaning routine I curse- I'm just tired. Sick and tired.)
