foreclosure: The American Dream Run - 10/04/11 02:50 PM
The American Dream Run NAHREP AZ is hosting its first annual American Dream Run. It's a 4 mile run in Peoria. I have been asked a number of times why we are organizing the run and where do the proceeds go. We, NAHREP AZ, are an organization that believes in the American Dream of homeownership.

Market Outlook - Just my opinion! With so much talk about "shadow inventory" and really the GUESS of where the market will go, I thought I would throw in my two cents on the Arizona Market. I am the President of NAHREP AZ and we just wrapped up our first annual state conference. What a huge success! And what a learning experience!
From the data I received during the event, coupled with data from "Tamboer Consulting", and just an overall hands on participation in the market, my conclusion is as follows: While measurable foreclosures will be around for (2 comments)
