    Home ownership is often considered the dream of the middle class in the US.

    But buying a house, and holding onto it during tough economic times, is becoming increasingly difficult for many families.

    The country's slowing economy, and subsequent rise in unemployment, has left many grappling with the issue of home foreclosure.

    Even Levittown, New York - where William Levitt established the model for modern suburbia - has been affected.
