    Appreciated this haiku.
    I can relate to housing woes at the moment. Thankfully, I live in one of the most consistent, stable housing markets in the US (typically no super-highs or super-lows either), but we’ve been facing tough times here too. Not much luck yet in trying to sell our good, very reasonably priced house. Ouch.
