If you know of anyone thinking of relocating to the Valley of the Sun, please refer their name to me, they will appreciate you recommendation to get experienced help, and you can get a gift certificate to the best brunch in the Valley, according to New Times.

Along with the great weather comes tax time. Many first time buyers use their tax refund for bills or a good down payment on a new home. Normally home buyers start looking for new places. Fannie Mae has just annouced an incentive to buyers! They will pay 3.5% ( Basicly all) of your closing costs! You save $7,000 on a $200,000 purchase!

Not this year as we have had the slowest first quarter in six years in the Phoenix metro area. The market is changing from equilibrium to a buyers market again. There's plenty of inventory with over 27,770 homes available, and interest rates a still attractive at 4%.
