65. Grandma paid $605,000 for a typical 3-bedroom house in Whittier
Edited on Thu Feb-19-09 02:33 PM by slackmaster
About 3-4 times what the place is really worth.

She could afford to rent a decent house and have a decent life, but she made some horrible decisions and all you're going to hear from the MSM is how tragic the situation is.
