"Frank- I hear what you are saying, it is just not feasible. It is just a micro of what occurred to our overall economy. People don't want to break routine. Everyone trying to make a dollar, do it for less or go find a new career. A baseline for value is a cute concept but the entire system is broken. People need to decide for themselves what they are willing to pay for a home & if they need a prof. opinion seek out several, The lender must also decide by whatever means necessary if that home..."    View Comment

"Dennis we did better than that, we gave houses to millions upon millions of people "who couldn't afford to buy a home" such as unemployed, underemployed, retirees, etc...Didn't pan out so well. Moving the houses and rehabing the homes can be costly and sure it may require less capital and natural resources to do such but it doesn't repair the system on a whole. National Geo Video.
