Did you know Father’s Day began at the YMCA?

Although she initially suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

Yuma Real Estate Market Update September 2016

Across the nation, real estate headlines are all talking about lack of inventory.  In many markets around the US, there are simply not enough homes for sale to meet demand.  That creates a seller's market, and leads to rising home prices.  How does that affect Yuma Arizona?  At first glance, the numbers look pretty promising for Yuma County.  In the first 8 months of the year, we sold 1,675 units.  That's an average of 209 homes per month.  Based on the current inventory, there is a 6.45 month supply of homes.  6 months of supply is considered a balanced market.

Home Loans for Border Patrol

Many families come to Yuma because of jobs with the US Border Patrol.  Let’s talk about the best ways to buy or refinance a house for Border Patrol agents and employees.

There was a recent rule change from Fannie Mae that has had a positive impact on Border Patrol agents obtaining conventional financing.  The change is that non-reimbursed business expenses (such as uniforms, cell phones, mileage and other things you might write off for work), no longer have to be deducted from ...
