Preventing Foreclosure - 06/14/09 11:02 AM
There's no question about it: nationwide foreclosures are up, particularly in Nevada, California, Arizona, Michigan, Florida and Colorado.

The rising cost of energy is a concern for all of us. And I'm not just talking about what we pay at the pump. Energy prices affect how much we spend on almost everything we buy. That includes the electricity and natural gas we use to power, cool and heat our homes. It even can play a role in the price you pay to purchase a home or how much you can fetch when you sell.
