Oh, and do you think my neighbors will get mad when I fire-sale the house then and walk away with their cash in my pocket?

If I don't, someone else will and it will be my cash they walk with.

So, let me get this straight. Under this plan, I can get a de facto rebate from taxpayers on my original purchase price. But, it sounds like the only way to get a rebate is to withhold a mortgage payment or two and save or use that cash elsewhere.

I wonder how many houses they'll let me do this on and how many times per house.
