"If you're facing foreclosure, squat." I absolutely agree with this advice. If you've been making a good faith effort and they won't renegotiate, then don't leave. It's your house. I don't mean you should sit there armed and angry. Squat peacefully. Don't be good little boys and girls. It is time for a velvet revolution. So plant your gardens. Sit on your velvet sofas. You know what they say about possession: it's 9/10ths of the law. So make them prove that you don't own it. Make the bank produce the note.

Just some advice from someone who wishes she owned a house.

Also, see if you can get your neighbors to support you in some way.

Smile widely and stand your ground - if nothing else, the smile will drive 'em around the bend.
