Homeowner Is Hopeful

WESLEY CHAPEL - When he moved to Bridgewater in 2005, Mark Spector paid more than $350,000 for his home on Bridgegate Drive.

Today, Spector's home is worth just under $259,000, according to an estimate by the Pasco County Property Appraiser's Office.

"Every original homeowner out here is probably underwater," said Spector, acknowledging his situation. "Almost nobody is expecting to sell anytime soon."

Not a homeowner, but mutual fund portfolio has lost just about that same amount, and no one is feeling too sorry for me. I really can't feel sorry for people fortunate enough to purchase a home - many of them doing it in order to flip for a profit.
