"Week-end Home" Who wrote this silly article? At 71 years old I was downsized from my Real Estate Association here in California in 2008, my unemployment has run out, I am quite able to work and I interview frequently until I have to show my ID and the minute the interviewer sees
December 24, 1939, I go off the short list and on to the "we are still interviewing and will call you list". Second Home...........I am trying to keep the first roof over my head.
Who ever wrote this artlcle is really out of touch with reality. The reality of life now in America is.................we are in deep trouble!
It appears to me that these listings are for folks looking to buy a vacation home.
I don't understand why those who are not in the market to pruchase one nor can afford their primary home would be reviewing the "For Sale Ads"
@ VETTEGURU....took the words right out of my mouth, word for word !
While we worked we did without many things so that we could buy a house and enjoy a little more comfortable living. This was our goal, but the upkeep of a house is costly unless you want to run it down. Now that we are retired and have a house that's paid off the real estate taxes (up 18%), electrictricity (up12%), water bill (up 24% and rising), gas for the car (at 4.27 a gallon) and of course food (has risen) just to name a few items that we must have to live. It's a good thing that we do not smoke. When will our politicians do something for the people. The banks helped out by giving loans to people who can not afford them.....who do you think is paying for that, so our government bails them our and stops Social Security increases for two years and maybe more.
I agree. However, if you are wondering why this article is posted, check out the sponsor: Bank of America!
Guess they have a few properties they want to unload or they just want to stir the pot to keep those loan origination fees flowing their way!
