Awhile back I blogged about Blue Shield canceling about 5500 Realtors and their families in California. At the time it seemed like a very terrible thing as I wasn't sure that I would be able to get health insurance as I had Cancer about 4 years ago. A great guy came out from Shasta Health Insuran...

I just read an article that mentions one large bank in particular is getting rid of 100% financing and is doing some drastic changes. It makes sense as the lenders were making loans to those that probably shouldn't have had a home loan for the last 4-5 years or so. They could justify it because m...
The inventory of homes remains in the 1550-1600 range with the market still favoring the buyers. Sellers are still willing to give some concessions on many properties and new homes are offering many more incentives than a year ago.
