It has become painfully aware to me that NOBODY is championing the right of a homeowner who is NOT underwater to be able to tap home equity if they are not working. Even if the home equity amount being tapped is still well within the prescribed 2/3's value of total built up home equity that ensures a bank can re sell the home and get back their money if the homeowner skips, banks won't allow an unemployed worker to tap any home equity from their home.
I would be ok with this if the government did not allow banks to STEAL built up home equity and the original down payment when they repossess a home. Virtually NONE of the blogs featured on swarm the banks is concerned about homeowners who may lose built up home equity and their down payment as well when a foreclosure occurs.
If you are a homeowner and feel you did the right thing by taking care of a family member, or perhaps are one of 15 million americans taking care of a family member with alzheimer's, and cannot work for that reason, maybe you should consider blogging about how the banks and the government are squeezing you out of your home and all the built up home equity you have in your home.
I'll create top priority blog placement for bloggers involved in keeping their home who are being denied fair access to home equity and their original down payment.
