RURAL ROUTES / Margot Ford McMillen
Last weekend, the big social event in my world was helping a friend move from her duplex apartment, in a complex that had been foreclosed, to a new apartment. The bank, who now owned her unit, didn't want to be in the rentals business, so they were moving everybody out. This is a short-sighted plan, in my opinion, because I believe that new buyers would want renters with good track records, but I'm not a bank. Maybe they had plans to upgrade the places, or maybe they had buddies that wanted to live there.
