Now, I’m definitely no fan of diamonds, so the fact that this person has to get rid of their diamonds doesn’t sadden me one bit. However, notice the reason they’re hawking the jewels: “for the closing cost on our 1st new home.” This is just one example of the kinds of things people in Seattle have to do to afford a house. Why do I have a feeling that the closing costs they’re trying to cover are for an interest-only adjustable-rate mortgage with no money down? I sure hope the new home brings them all the happiness they apparently think it will.
