Mar 17th 2011 4:46PM Congratulations Girl,
I applaud you for sticking to and increasing small changes. I think both are close to imporrible for most fols to accomplish and you deserve a whole lot more than 5 gold stars.
Mar 7th 2011 6:12PM Your point is well taken. However, for folks who do want to buy a home, especially, since it is a FIXED asset and cannot move to Florida or, technically, be stolen. You default, the lender forecloses. It used to work, but for the indefinite future (until the real estate glut dissapears, and supply and demand are equalized to a reasonable margin, it will be necessary to immediately get your good credit re-established.
The ways to do this are well put in this article. For your own sake, however, make sure your house payment is never more than 30% of your gross net income. That way it will survive debacles like the one we are still struggling to overcome, and you will have a really affordable housing payment.

Jul 26th 2010 11:09PM You have a point. I am curious as to just how teh earnings reports on mostb al;l major corporate earnings are waaaay above expectations and every one else is hurting.
Jul 26th 2010 11:03PM FDR didn't do badly at all in that regard.
Jul 26th 2010 11:00PM Malarkey. George Bush and his warmongering Republicans are responsible for the economy. How selectively and quickly folks forget.
