The easy choice is eating poorly...well, you know how (16 comments)

My buyer told me that she heard that unhappy people are putting fish in the walls prior to being evicted from their foreclosed home. Yuck, even this was a new (15 comments)

Homeowners, If you are underwater and your mortgage payment is more than you can handle, you are not alone.
