Arizona is second in the nation for child drowning. According to fire district personnel August is the most dangerous time of the year for this to occur. The Arizona governor and mayors across Arizona are signing a proclamation declaring this August the fourth Annual Drowning Awareness Month. It's very important to be careful with children around not only swimming pools, but also any water at all. It only takes a moment for a tragedy to occur. It's important for us all to practice the ABCs of water safety (adults, barriers and classes.) Check with your local fire department or Red Cross for classes.

I have heard a lot of buzz about this lately and was wondering if anyone has taken advantage of it.  If so, how do you like it?  Any other information you could tell me about.  Do you think this trend will continue? Plus or minues? Any good companies out there? How exactly does it work?  Would you prefer an in house assistant instead? What about salaries with these employees?

As we all know, the market has considerably slowed down compared to what happened in 2005 but I thought it might be interesting to see some numbers. These just reflex for Gold Canyon, AZ only:  In 2007, just from July 1 - August 1, there were 17 homes sold and the year before with the same month, only 18 were sold.  The stats from those months and years remained quite consistent.  In 2005, a whopping 47 properties were sold in just one months time.  Currently we have 362 active properties on the market just in Gold Canyon.  Mesa has 4,553 actives.  Apache Junction has 568.  Wow, this just motivates me to get some buyers :)I would curious on numbers from any of you in your areas to compare markets. www.realestatewithjody.com

Early this morning at our KW partners meeting, we had the pleasure to have David Schweikert, Maricopa County Treasurer, speak on how to research and purchase tax liens and about online auctions.The information he provided to us was incredible.  He started talking about how there are thousands of homes that may not own their entire piece of land. They have supplied helpful information at: www.treasurer.maricopa.gov for your research purposes.  He stated they are working very hard to make sure the owners have the information to acquire the part of their property that was incorrect, however, as you may guess not every situation turns out for the best.   This could be a useful tool for your buyers & sellers to make sure they never run into these problems.  The website is a great tool and qu...
