This article fails to point out the raise in percentage of Stratigic defaults that are on the rise. Without question we have a huge crisis on our hands in the housing market but did you know that more then a quarter of the defaults in 2009 were due to people just walking away from their homes? There is a growing industry in which professionals are teaching the benefits of walking away from their homes because of negative equity. While I am sympathetic to those who have lost their jobs or have interest rates that they cannot afford, I find little sympathy for the people who walk away from their homes because it's not a good investment anymore.
