Well, it's about time!
I mean, when you're financially strapped and upside down on your home mortgage, there's absolutely nothing wrong with raising your heavy hand and asking for a little help.
Those California homedebtors microns away from going postal due to pending foreclosure and bankruptcy should be relieved to learn that H.E.L.P. will indeed be arriving!
Home Experts for Loan Preforeclosure, that is.
A stellar organization of H.E.L.P.ers will soon be opening offices all over the country in the coming months, including lovely, sunny, everyone-wants-to-live-here, 15%-home-value-growth-is-in-the-bag-for-2006-because-Gary-Watts-said-so-California.
What fantastic news for those strapped homedebtors! When you're in deep financial trouble, it's just great for someone to take the time out of their busy day to bend down, extend a hand and lift you out of the cesspool of real estate hopelessness.
I mean, just read what the article has to say about these unfortunate souls:
"There is a burgeoning of news items of home owners having to sell their properties as rising tide foreclosures of the collapsing subprime mortgage market. These generalities and statistics often obscure the real human tragedies that lie behind such stories. HELP works to make sure people can stop foreclosure, and raise funds against their properties to settle with pressing creditors."
Well, a great many of these human tragedies could have been avoided with a little financial literacy, a whole lot less stupidity, and greed by the dolts who signed the dotted line, ......but let's not get into that now.
This development is super-duper, and I don't want to sour the moment.
Gee, I wonder who these Experts are, and where they have been for the last 5 years prior to the train derailment that is the real estate industry as we are coming to know it?
You know, far be it from me to ask a dumb-ass question here, but could it be...I mean, is it just possible that these so called freaking "Experts" are the same kind of goofball "Experts" that got you into this f'ed-up financial suicide mess in the firstplace?
Unfortunately at this point in the game, it's not like the upsidedowners have a Disneyland-long line of ethical, real-estate professionals to turn to for help right now.
"No, I get by with a little help from my friends. I get high with a little help from my friends. Could it be anybody?......"
