Our house was just appraised at $10,000 more than we bought it for just this last October... we were expecting the value to have gone down, but its gone up...that has to be a good sign, no?

Our income went up and we are buying a new home. Not typical in our area. My husband is a very hard worker and was smart enough to constantly be adding new job skills to his resume. He is the only person who does his very vital job at his company. We saved for our home the past few years. When we watched others take out stupid interest only loans and put nothing down we saved. When we watched people buy high we saved. We put half down on our home and will enjoy our 4k sqft brand new beautiful home because we were smart. We know many who are doing well like us they always lived within their means and used common sense and waited to buy a home like we did.
About 10k people lost jobs last week in our town. Three auto dealers went under as well. Stores are closing and we are in an area with relatively low unemployment only 4.9 percent until last week now we are in the 5.2 percent range. I am sure that will go up.
