Neighborhoods across America are changing their landscape, as more homeowners default on loan payments and experience some form of foreclosure.
The welcome wagon generally comes with hot apple pie and wonderful well wishes, but what happens when your neighbor is forced out of their home? With around 1 out of 538 households in the United States experiencing some sort of foreclosure, I think there needs to be some way to say goodbye to your neighbors without causing them more pain and suffering.
