    Re: My Company Closed Today

    I don't like to hear that companies are closing it's doors. It sucks for the economy and all employees.

    Want to hear even more shocking?

    Down in Naples, FL there's an area on the water that is very "exclusive".... we're talking multi-million dollar homes. Well after all those hurricanes passed by a couple years ago, you can't even get $1 million for more than half of these houses now. Nobody wants to live there anymore!

    Re: My Company Closed Today

    DD- take a deep breath... it will be okay. It sucks, but you will find something else, probably something waaaaay better.

    Right now...I am very negative to CA right now and the whole housing market because it's effecting my work, co-op preschool. We're looking, at closing our doors after 53 years. So I feel your pain DisneyDaddy. It sucks. I am thinking everyone whose work is being effected by the housing market right now, needs to go for a drink near Disneyland ('cause Disneyland is expensive to get your drink on at and looking for work and all...).

    I thought about that - and have actually sent my resume for some of their corporate type positions in Anaheim - and have sent it to Partners Federal Credit Union - Disney's credit union - as I have an account there...but I've heard nothing.

    If I was to actually work IN Disneyland, I'd have to be 'set' financially, because I/we couldn't live off of that , unfortunately.

    Good luck. And if I see anything -- I work in the Irvine Spectrum -- I will let you know. There are several lenders around in this area and other businesses as well...
    Thank you. Irvine is the MECCA for Mortgage Banking in Orange County, as far as I am concerned. Thank you.

    The real estate industry is getting worse and worse. People are saying rock bottom hasn't even been hit yet. Here in Florida, you have to go back at least 5 years to find home sales as low as what's going around right now.

    Re: My Company Closed Today

    Yeah my mom just moved to PA (from CA), and getting the house here sold has been a NIGHTMARE.... luckily, since she was promoted and transfered to a new state, the company she works for will buy her house here from her if it is actively on the market for a month and wont sell (they buy it for an appraised value).. so she doesn't have to worry about it for much longer..

    Re: My Company Closed Today

    If you have excellent credit and can afford the monthly mortgage payments.... now is a great time to buy with home prices being so low. But so many people with sucky credit are getting lured into bad loans and end up going into foreclosure.

    Makes me very happy I've always rented. And thankfully my rent is only going up $10 next year (this year it went up $105! ).

    Re: My Company Closed Today

    How do they get lured into bad loans?

    I have read through many loan documents and the terms of the loan are always clearly disclosed. Do people really sign legal documents without reading or understanding them?
