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

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.
