followed your example!
The lessons of history are sometimes only remembered until the final exam is taken!
Such is the case with our present economic and real estate condition.
Folks who lived through the great depression as well as World War II knew what hard times were like.
They knew that one must live within their means and, when available, credit, if required, must be used wisely!
Hopefully the present generation will go back to the history books for a refresher! And, let us not forget government spending as well!
No quite the real estate post I usually write but the point for home buyers is...buy within your means!
