The Cold Comfort of Home

I attended a home buying seminar last week at the law school targeted exclusively at “high income young professionals.”  Though I’m fairly certain only two of those words apply to me, there were free sandwiches. Those presenting were peppered with questions, revealing, for the first time in my law school experience, the great socio-economic divide we’ve all been, up until this point, politely able to ignore.  Half of the audience had questions about tax credits on investment properties and second homes, while the other half was surprised to learn that they had a credit score. Out of solidarity for those learning for the first time how much a condo costs in Manhattan, I took an extra sandwich.  Seven lean years coming up, huh?
