From a reader:
I’ve opted to go through the CT state modification program. The lender refused to discuss modification until I defaulted…so here we are.
I have no interest being a burden on other taxpayers – I want to renegotiate the terms of my loan.
This is all my fault. I don’t expect anyone else to pay my debts.
Banks, countries, cities and states will be bailed out (funnily enough by me and other taxpayers). We’ve all lived beyond our means. All of these will get more funds to survive. I won’t.
Nobody cares about the guy in the street.
I screwed up…most people on this blog would seem to think hey buddy that’s your fault, so pack your bags and go….
we’ll see how it works out…I’ll let you know…
Commentators, heads up: no bashing – I won’t tolerate or post it. I was showing a distressed property yesterday – five children’s bedrooms, all occupied. Knowing that those kids were all going to be moving on to a different, worse lifestyle in a few months was a depressing, sad event. It affected my buyer clients too. No wonder it’s hard to sell houses in this market: there’s no joy in it anymore.
