An AP story today said that the “foreclosure crisis” is worsening. The latest evidence was a report Thursday that a rising proportion of fixed-rate home loans made to people with good credit are sinking into foreclosure nationwide, according to the article. The state hardest hit is Florida where one in four mortgages were either past due or in foreclosure… Now, this can be viewed as a “crisis.” Or this can be viewed as a step toward a part of the new economy we propose when it comes to real estate. In the new economy, many more people go to house-sharing. This halves expenses. The mortgage is half. The utilities are half. You share furniture, appliances, lawn equipment… Urban sprawl starts to reverse. Global warming gases diminish significantly. And money is freed up to help the poor here and around the world more… On a campaign stop in Winnona, Minnesota, we learned that town has a House-Share Program to help match people. Every town should have a similar program.
