i think it is shameful that the renters get hurt in the long run. i live in a 850.00 a month home i have to pay my ulitilies and my water and trash that adds up to over a thousand dollars a month plus my heat that i pay out of pocket for 2000 dollars to get heat for the winter that usually lasts me 3 months or more with 2 oil tanks .
i understand how fraustrating it is i am on ssrdi and my husband works . i make do with things i can.i shop at adli's for food and at the thift stores for clothes i know being poor or being in the middle class isn't easy just have to make do it could be a lot worse we could own houses we can not afford and have the banks take what we have away .
it will get better the cost of living will catch up with us and the stimulis checks we get will help blance out things for our lives to pay bills and to get back on track with rent.
but yes i do agree it is greed but greed is the only thing that pays the mortage and the taxes on the places that we live in. we all are going to feel the pinch and we all have to bite our lips and grin it no matter how painful it really can be. not many places will accept a applicants with kids or animals so we have to do our best and bare with what life gives us.

who is levengood kidding the rent in lebanon is astronomical for the type of area that it is. people that can afford rent in the "nicer" areas of lebanon can probably afford a nicer, cheaper home outside of lebanon. and then there is the flip side where the ones that can't afford decent housing outside of lebanon are living in rundown apartments run by slumlords, or are having to more than one family to a household. levengood wake up your still sleeping and living in a dream world.

i feel all of your pain as well... this mortgage crisis was fueled by the high price of oil and not by irresponsible buyers...
