just came across something that is NOT a scam but is potentially misleading and in my opinion NOT in the consumers best interest. I received a letter in the mail from my mortgage lender, National City Mortgage, inviting me to sign up for its "bi-weekly" mortgage payment program which would save m...

Tempe - The City of Tempe reports having the best quarter for building activity ever for the fiscal year.  This is mostly due to the new permits drawn for student housing and other construction projects along Apache Boulevard.

I am hearing more and more stories from renters of high rise condos and lofts who are getting cheated out of rents and deposits when their "landlord" stops paying the mortgage and the bank forecloses.  These poor folks sometimes have to move in a matter of days or weeks.  Talk about disruption!
