Abstract

Traditional wisdom on financial security has included safeguards against risk associated with one’s home. With the collapse of the real estate market, this wisdom has proven both its truth and the painful effects of ignoring it. This brief article summarizes the practical applications of conservative home ownership financing, one of the keys to long term financial stability.

Keywords: Real Estate, Finance collapse, Foreclosure, financial stability
