Why in the heck is it that people who live off grid in rural america are blackballed from getting a simple home mortgage? I go to work every day, I pay my bills , my credit is fine. But I live off the grid on top of a mountain more than 25 miles from the nearest city.....so what is the big deal. I thought the issue was whether or not I would be able to repay the loan ( which i need to drill a 10,000 water well so I wont have to keep hauling water). But no, the issue is how difficult will it be for the mortgage company to sell ;your place if you default. Now I am a grown woman and already know that this is just the way life is and that life is not always fair. But all those environmentalist out there and all those folks talking about save energy, spare the planet , prepare for the worst to come....you would think there would be one mortgage company that was open minded! Thanks for letting me vent a bit.
