Losing our hearts

By
Real Estate Appraiser with Appraising in Delaware

Sometimes it is really hard to go into homes that were obviously loved and now lost.  As an appraiser I see the carefully chosen paint and wallpaper, the hard work in renovations, the pink and blue kids rooms.  I know how I love my house, how it is more than just shelter.  Your home is where your kids are safe, where you keep track of how tall they have grown, where you feel at peace and happy.  It may just be a mortgage to a bank, but to us, as homeowners, it is a part of our soul.  My home is the center of our family, where we eat, sleep, play board games, laugh and are ourselves.  I can only hope, going forward, that the people that deserve help in keeping their homes are able to get it.  Since our government sees fit to pay billions to corporations so that they can give out trips and bonuses.  Lets give a bonus to hard working americans so they can keep their families together and their dignity.

Our homes are more than just brick and mortar and I, too, pray that those families who truly need the help are getting it.

This is so true. I am selling a bank owned property right now and it is just what you said.  Someone did a lot of work to the home with a lot of thoughtfulness.  I always point that out to my clients, and then we wonder what must have happened to them?  It is sad.
