Join a new discussion about the housing market

Mike Reszler, MPR's Managing Editor for online news, wants to know if problems in the housing market affecting you? Jim G. replied:

"I bought at the peak of the market, just about 2 years ago & had enough economic sense to realize that I was doing so. Retired, on a fixed income. Didn't buy on spec or as an investment - just needed a place to live.

Don't feel sorry for investors - it's a gamble & if you lose, whatever. Feel sorry for those who were sucked into teaser ARM's by greedy lenders. You can say that it's 'Buyer beware' but it's predatory, loan-shark practices that take advantage of people's dreams."

Does Jim's experience mirror your own, or do you have a different situation? Join the discussion and tell your own story.

We all imagine those incredibly unlikely situations where a series of coincidences completely changes our perspective and life.

If Esther Robinson's grandma hadn't flirted with the right man at the right time in the right building, Esther wouldn't have known her uncle had not only been Andy Warhol's boyfriend but he made films for the Warhol Factory.

Don't take my word for it, get an early listen to Euan Kerr's interview with Esther Robinson about her film "A Walk into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory."
