They don’t have cars and walk along the sides of highways at night. The poor bastards get nailed all the time.

Unfortunately we have recourse here in the UK.
Otherwise I would have walked away a LONG time ago.
At the same time, I would have done far more BTL spec buying with tiny/no deposit if there were no recourse.
Rebuilding a credit history is child’s play, but no-money-down housing bubbles come along only once every two decades or so.
Perhaps the US is worse off for volatility in house prices purely owing to non-recourse states.
Right now though – PLAY BY THE RULES AND WALK AWAY.
