If you're selling your Phoenix area home, you may want to know about VA Loans.  They contain  fees that a veteran doesn't have to pay and a seller does.  

So what is a VA loan?  It's financing a Veteran can obtain through the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. It was created so veterans and their families can obtain financing to purchase a home.  The department doesn't orginate the loan, it just establishes rules for those that qualify, dictate the terms of the mortgages offered and insures VA loans against default.

“Bubble Watch” has been a most popular phrase for pessimistic (or fearful) observers of Arizona’s resurgent real estate market in recent weeks.  Last Saturday on That Real Estate Show, Michael Orr, Director of the Real Estate Center at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, continued to downplay the notion of a second bubble affecting Valley homeowners in the near future.  But what about other cities?  What about other countries?

 A month ago, some, including the U.K. based publication, The Economist, warned of a severe correction to the once thriving Canadian real estate market, even going as far to warn of a “large bubble

Bankruptcy is an uncomfortable subject for a variety of reasons.  The most obvious is the potential havoc it can wreak on your finances.  Running a close second is the negative stigma which is often attached to the process.  This negativity is important to mention because strong emotions can sometimes lead to unsound financial decisions with devastating results.

Bankruptcy becomes a viable option for someone who is “upside down” in terms of cash flow.  In other words, when a person has more money going out each month than coming in, bankruptcy should be considered if no reversal of this negative cash flow is within sight.  The longer someone waits to explore the various options available, the more serious his or her situation may become.

The 'E' word isn’t a bad word in Phoenix real estate anymore

I spent the better part of last week in Southern California, with a room full of optimistic realtors, anxious get to work in the suddenly resurgent real estate industry.  The market conditions in California aren’t too different than our own in Arizona:  Affordable listings in high demand, sellers in a premium position for resale opportunities, and a flood of buyers with a shortage of options.  The California Association of Realtors shed further light on the subject, identifying 54% of sales in the month of April as equity sales.  Zillow’s recent projections amplify the point, as (per their report) 1.4 million homeowners could regain positive equity by the first quarter of 2014.  Save to say,
