Do you suffer from real estate envy?

Posted at 10:13 AM on February 6, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Daniel McGinn, author of "House Lust: America's Obsession With Our Homes" appears on Midmorning to talk about real estate envy:

"Do you dream about master bedroom suites and walk-in closets? Do you obsess over square footage? Do you go online to check out the value of that house down the block that just went on the market? The author of a new book on America's obsession with homes and real estate says you're not alone."

Considering it is many people's largest investment, isn't that natural? Is it any wonder many of us place value on our homes because it touches so many aspects of our lives and needs: shelter, safety, status.

Do you suffer from real estate envy? Are you obsessed with your home? Join our online discussion and share your perspective.
