Great article Ty! And don't forget the huge opportunity for Credit Unions with single women homebuyers. Last year they amounted to 1 in every 5 homes sold. They are a natural match for the Credit Union culture.

From one GenXer to another, I couldn't agree more. No one wants a mortgage, but we all want homes. Well done sir.

Having been in the Real Estate business for almost thirty years along with owning an in house "Mortgage" company I readly agree that a fresh perspective from a young buyer and borrower is just what we need. Great job!! e

Great article, as I would much rather live in a home and make home improvements than live in a mortgage.

Please remember a mortgage is a lien or claim against real property given by the mortgagor to the mortgagee (lender) as security for money borrowed, not the actual loan. I doubt no matter what you call it that each party would not enter a loan or recieve funds without a legally binding contract to protect them. aka "mortgage". Your mortgage can be your finest tool for creating a very financially secure future if used properly.

This idea is silly. If you don''t like a perfectly defined and convenient word in the English language - a word that is well established and has a definite meaning - I suggest you change languages. The phrase ''home loan'' is ambiguous, with no distinct meaning. I''m surprised that a professional writer would think this way.
