Real estate blunder

December 28, 2007

Re "Foreclosing on a family's Christmas," Dec. 24

When the Debora family entered blindly into a mortgage to buy a house, it played a role in driving up real estate prices for many others. The family is part victim and part perpetrator, and it should inspect the confines of its consciousness for vestiges of greed, which is surely lurking there. Rather than feel compassion for the family losing the home, I only feel pity -- the Deboras should have read their documents. I reserve my compassion for those priced out of the market by artificial demand created by a blind hunger to own.
