Richard and I have been in our house for 9 years - half the time we have been together! Prior to this I have never lived in one place longer than 4 years and have never before had a place I really called HOME. This is OUR HOME!

Richard and I have been in our house for 9 years - half the time we have been together! Prior to this I have never lived in one place longer than 4 years and have never before had a place I really called HOME. This is OUR HOME! The past few years have been pretty tough for us. I had to leave a job of 18 years, but was able to start my own business which is finally providing an income, after 4 years of working it and part time jobs. But just as my business started to take off, Richard lost his job of 14 years! Despite his being unemployed, then only working part-time for over a year, we were able to "maintain" - we were falling behind on mortgage and other bills, but managing to somehow keep it together. When we knew Richard was getting a new full time position with benefits, we thought it would all finally come together... unfortunately we had let ourselves get too far behind, and finally had to admit we couldn't do this on our own. WE NEED HELP! We are working with our lender on a possible modification of our loan, which could get us caught up. But it is not a guarantee, they might even make us "short-sell" the house. And even if it does happen, there are so many things the house needs after 9 years - a new furnace, siding and paint, repairing ice and water damage.  We are both working, but only making about half of what we did a few years ago. Our house is just a modest manufactured home, but it is HOME to us and our wonderful dogs.
