    Has anyone done a mortgage registry? FI and I have lived on our own for years so we have plenty of stuff. We would really like to buy a house and thought maybe we could set up an account for guests to make contributions to. I just don't know how to go about it, local bank, national bank, is there a webservice for this?

      What an interesting concept...

      I just googled it and found this.

        I would SO love to be able to do that.... However I KNOW it would NOT fly with my family! They don't even like the idea of registering at all.... they don't seem to understand that is what people do!

            At any wedding I've ever attended, the majority of gifts have been monetary gifts anyhow. I don't know that you need to worry about registering for mortgage contributions.

            we set up an account and mentioned in on our website and people just gave us checks, but with the market right now in our area its just not worth it to buy

              Has anyone had a good turn out with raising money for your home through a registry or is it best to just ask for money?
