Are you upside down in your mortgage

Do you owe more than your house is worth? Do you ever feel like it is not worth it to keep it?

  • everyday!!!!!!! When this house was appraised, they didn't even come out and look at it. They gave it a desktop appraisal. Now we are having serious issues with the foundation....and every time I pay the house payment, i have to remind myself why walking away is not an option right now.

  • I haven't reached that point but I'm considering selling my house to buy a nice well equipped RV. Then I can live in it (j/j)

  • no.

    bought at 600 and at the high point could have sold it for 1.3............ we still owe less than it is worth but we did an addition and the market turned down so now we would only have about a 300K profit.

  • No. We bought our house 11 years ago for $99,900. During the boom it's value went up to $220k, we just had it appraised (for a re-finance) and it appraised at $108k. Thankfully we only owe 1/2 of that.
