This is so twistedly cool. Let me see if I have this correct: My biggest investment, (my house) is actually only worth 60% of what it is appraised for, but I still owe 98%, because I just refinanced to make home improvements.

So when I sell it, instead of getting cash I will get a bill. That will make living off of my second biggest investment (my pension) a little harder as I pay off a debt I was not counting on. Then I will find out that will be a little harder than I planned on because my pension is gone because it also invested in and lost money on MY HOUSE.
