Recession, really?

Date Sat, March 21 2009
I don’t know why but, for some reason, I know at least half a dozen people who have purchased homes in thew last year or so. While the recession around us seems obvious in some ways, some people to be doing better than they ever have. I suspect this is because those who have always had to save to make ends meet are already doing what is necessary to survive in the current economic conditions and those who aren’t, well, lose their houses which makes for a good deal for the savers. It’s not even like I want a home; I never much saw myself as a house person, really. Hell, I couldn’t even see myself being someone who takes Outer Banks rentals seriously but owning your own property does seem to establish the sense of permanence I am always looking for.
