“O, Canada! Your Arizona Home Calls”

Phoenix, AZ - September 28, 2010 - (RealEstateRama) -- Full moon power lightens the Arizona desert sky, at least cooling down from the intense summer.

In April, 2010, about ¼ of home buyers to metropolitan Phoenix were not from Arizona. According to Catherine Reagor from The Arizona Republic, “Now, the dominant group of out-of-state buyers is from outside the country.” Phoenix-based Information Market stated Canadian investments in Arizona homes have grown 80%, per comments made during a recent Marketplace interview on American Public Radio.

Mortgage Interest Rates Hit New Low: How Does This Impact Investors?

Phoenix, AZ - December 23, 2009 - (RealEstateRama) -- Long-term mortgage rates fell to a new low in December, according to the Phoenix Business Journal, with a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaging 4.71 percent, the lowest rate since at least 1971, when Freddie Mac started keeping track. While this is excellent news, it is important for investors to remember that much like credit cards, an interest rate is heavily dependent on the borrower's credit history. According to Ron Kuhn, Senior Mortgage Planner at AmeriFirst Financial, investors often mistakenly believe that all interest rates are equal from borrower to borrower; however, it is much more involved that just a current rate quote. Most are locking in rates that fall between 4.875% and 5.125% due to factors such as loan size, property type, Loan to Value (LTV) and credit scores
