The moral and ethical debate continues but it appears that more people are not taking such a hard line on this issue. A couple of years ago, I was among those that felt that walking away from a mortgage was the absolute last resort and should only happen if there was a severe hardship invloved. A...

Over the past six months, the inventory of single family homes in the subdivisions of Maricopa Arizona has more then doubled, from 440 to over 970. Most of this increase is due to an influx of distressed homes, both short sales and foreclosures. This has occured in spite of the buying activity th...

I'm not sure how accurate this study is but, needless to say, the Greater Phoenix Area has taken a major hit. I would expect to see the decline continue as short sales and foreclosures continue to flood the marketplace and ultimately will drop values even further as they close escrow. The effect ...

For the first time since early 2010, the inventory of single family homes dropped. I track these numbers on a weekly basis and approximately 15 to 30 homes have been added to the inventory each week until now.
