What a difference a year can make. According to the Cromford Report real estate statistics for Fountain Hills from March 2009 thru March 2010, the inventory has been reduced, the sales price per square foot has remained level and the foreclosure notices have increased. Since the beginning of 2010, sales per month has had a major upswing.  It appears that the real estate market here in Fountain Hills as with most other cities that comprise the greater Phoenix merto area know as "Valley of the Sun"  has been very active as investors, first time home buyers and people relocating have jumped in to the market to take advantage of the low prices and excellent interest rates.  If we look back to 2008 when the real estate market was very sluggish, there was almost a 30 months supply (Months Sup...

Radon gas is formed as underground deposits of radium slowly decay and decompose. Released radon gas can enter into houses through cracks and holes in the foundations. If ventilation is inadequate, radon can build up to very unhealthy levels, increasing the risk of lung cancer. Nearly every U.S. state has dwellings with measured radon levels above acceptable limits.

I'll try to get to the Art Show next week but this week it's on the Farmers Market. Having Grown up on a Farm in Portage, Michigan, Farmers Markets are dear to my heart.

Snake Season! Fountain Hills, Arizona Just a short post for my friends and visitors to Fountain Hills. Part of enjoying the Life Style in Fountain Hills, Rio Verde and the out lying desert communities comes with some cautions. Rattlers! Last night we sighted our first snake of the year. A young California King Snake was stretched out across our front door step. King Snakes are harmless and actually have been know to consume Rattle Snakes. He was probably hungry and came out during the heat of the day and was trying to stay warm by comforting himself next to the warmth of the house we have in Fountain Hills. So if your out hiking, cleaning up the yard or just walking the dog, use a little extra caution. I've even had Rusty snake trained and have a cute video of it. I'll try to post more ...
