Re: Extreme Makeover Foreclosure
Yeah, I read this. I can understand some of the bitterness people feel towards this family. They volunteered their effort and time to that house and the family ends up getting foreclosed on. But there were no preconditions on their volunteering. They did it because they wanted to help out. It doesn't make their help any less valid. They did a good thing and no matter what happens, they should be proud of themselves.
As for the family, I don't know all the details but it seems to me that a responsible bank wouldn't loan someone with their financial history that kind of money. It'd be one thing if they used that loan to buy a bunch of crap they didn't need. They used it to start a construction company and if it worked, they could be self-sufficient and all that good stuff. It just didn't work out. It's sad but lots of start-up companies don't work out.
