Once again, the sun is shining on the housing market in Phoenix. Arizona is attractive once again to buyers with retirement, and a warmer climate, on the horizon. In 2012, domestic migration climbed high as it had been in the past five years as Arizona welcomed 26,000 migrants from other states. Across the state, as mortgage rates are decreasing and home values rising, the housing market is enjoying an influx as baby boomers choose our sunny skies. Even local retirees are opting to downsize, placing their current homes up for sale in favor of less maintenance.
Arizona’s story of growth and prosperity came through access to a supply of low-cost energy and water that is now at risk. Before World War II, Arizona was a desert outpost — a stopover on the way to California. As the post-war economy blossomed, Arizona remained the rugged West.

The housing market continues its bumpy ride toward full recovery with more lurches, twists and turns than a roller coaster at the state fair.
Halloween is upon us. Of course, whether you’re navigating the dark corridors of a “haunted house” or just dealing with the “creepy” characters coming to your door demanding candy, you’re probably not too fearful of the sights of the season. But as you go through life, you’ll want to avoid some things that really are scary — such as these investment moves:
A recent change in federal housing guidelines could set the stage for up to 2.5 million formerly foreclosed homeowners and short salers to re-enter the housing market sooner rather than later.
When I was in high school, my mom and I threw all kinds of dinner parties.

Even if everything Secretary of State John Kerry says about chemical weapons in Syria were true, the evidence would prove only that Bashar al-Assad committed crimes against civilians. It would not prove that the U.S. government has either the moral or legal authority to commit acts of war.
In 1997, then Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), The Rev. H. George Anderson wrote a book called, “A Good Time to be the Church.” His successor, The Rev. Mark Hanson, who will complete 12 years as ELCA Presiding Bishop in November, quipped that he was thinking of writing a book called, “It’s Not All That Great a Time to Be the Church.”
National Grandparents Day is observed on Sept. 8. And although this “day” is not as widely known as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, it does remind us of the importance of grandparents. If you’re a grandparent yourself, you may be thinking of ways to help your grandchildren on their journey through life. One of the greatest gifts you can give them may be financial support for their college education — and one way you can help provide this support could be found in the distributions you receive from your retirement accounts.
Americans’ confidence in the economy inched closer to a 5 1/2-year high on growing optimism that hiring and wages could pick up in coming months.
Jim Rogers, a famous investor, tells us that nations that save and invest these savings will have growth and prosperity. America is on the wrong path. We don’t have savings, and we are loaded with debt. We also consume more than we export, and have done so for many years. The Federal Reserve is debasing the dollar, so its worth keeps declining. The days of the U.S. dollar being king is no longer true. The next stage of our decline will occur when all of our dollars come home and cause inflation to surge. This is all planned by our administration, with massive monetary help by the FED.
