Here is the latest housing market update release from the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service.  The numbers are reflective of many real estate markets throughout the country, showing rising prices and below normal inventory.  While this does have an upward pressure on prices, the numbers are not moving as fast as you might think.  When you look at average prices and average price per square foot, those price increases are only 1.2% and 0.46%.  While slow and steady is not all bad, the prices have not moved far enough to motivate investors or some owner occupant sellers to pull the trigger yet.  Read more information from the report below.  You can read the entire report and see all the charts HERE.

Persistent and consistent focus on a

If you are an average banking customer, then you are spending about $150 a year on checking account fees alone. Imagine what you could do with that money other than pay it to your bank – especially given that you likely have “fee-free checking!” On average, maintenance fees alone cost about $152 a year, and that is before ATM fees and overdraft fees (usually about $25, but they can be up to $32.48). Fortunately, there are a few legal ways to dodge bank fees that do not involve hiding your gold bullion in a mattress for the rest of your life. Check them out:

Consider banking online Although online banks still have fees, their fees are at least lower. 58 percent of online checking accounts have no monthly maintenance fees, and the minimum needed to
