bigger down payment

johnnyvic | Jan 22, 2013 11:11 AM ET My last post was cut off... Yes, short term price increases can make people in the business a lot of money, or trick home occupiers into spending well beyond their means, but this is not good for future middle class families.

Hawkman1950 | Jan 22, 2013 11:29 AM ET You know what if you MORONS at CNBC can`t get your story straight why don`t you just shut the fock up. Just last week you were reporting how much housing sales and starts were up and now today here we are at lower sales. Couldn`t have anything to do with the fact you want to help prop up those oil prices could it????? I thought not.

Hawkman1950 | Jan 22, 2013 11:34 AM ET If you go back 30 years or so if you wanted to buy a house the payments and everything else went along with it couldn`t exceed more than 25% of your monthly income and if it did you either put a bigger down payment on it or moved into something else that was lower in price. Not today, these banks will try to do what it takes to put people into home they know they can`t afford. Better known as being house broke and lord help you if either one of you get sick or lose your job.
