Home Ownership and Mortgage Rewind

We’ve had some fun looking at home ownership and mortgages over the last several posts.  Let’s review what we’ve learned:

September 22, 2010: The tale of the tortoise and the hare is an excellent object lesson about why going long, slow and steady on repaying your mortgage is the right strategy.

September 19, 2010: I reviewed a great article by Brett Arends’ in the Wall Street Journal, 10 Reasons to Buy a Home, and demonstrated how his top-ten is related to mortgages.[[http://wp.me/pZTwu-5d]]

September 15, 2010: I asked the question, “we all want the truth when it comes to financing our home, right?”  We answered and showed the truth about mortgage loans.

September 12, 2010: I debunked the idea that your primary residence is an investment in real estate.  We clearly demonstrated that it is consumption of shelter.

September 8, 2010: We looked at the history of “The American Dream” and the groups that profit from home ownership.

I hope you enjoyed reading my posts as much as I enjoyed writing them.  What was your biggest takeaway from this series on home ownership and mortgages?
