But before, abandoning your property there are many differences in the real estate market today than there was in 2008. There are new federal regulations in place, as a response to the recession, to protect today’s homeowners.

Today’s loans and mortgages are far more secure, and although the market will most likely not rise at its current rate, it will also not have as dramatic of a drop as in 2008.
