Oxymoron Diaries | Homeless Households

Piggy backing on yesterday's Oxymoron Diaries | Short Sale, today I've added Oxymoron Diaries|Homeless Households. This was brought to my attention when doing a search on twitter for #oxymoron. The tweet had a link to a BBC Mobile article on Housing in England. Here's the link to the article. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17298906.

I really hate to do back-to-back posts on such un-funny things as short sales and homelessness, but inspiration comes from all sorts of places and sometimes God throws it right in your face so you'll pay attention.

Not that I need a push to think about the housing crisis, as nearly a decade in the real estate business has put that subject matter smack dab in the front of my brain.

So back to Homeless Households.

Yes, apparently that's an oxymoron, as households living in a home (with or without a mortgage) is the American Dream. And the British Dream. And the World Dream, in fact. Doesn't matter if that dream is a brick two-story, a bungalow, a hut in the jungle, a farmhouse, a cave, a commune, or a cardboard box.

So, maybe Homeless Households isn't an oxymoron in this housing crisis. Maybe it's actually becoming a redundancy?

All I really know is that we need to make sure that the phrase Homeless Households isn't redundant for any more families than necessary.

We need to help make sure that Home is where the heart is.
