Happy Spring!!!  Hope you are enjoying this awesome weather!
A couple of are a couple of interesting things that you might find useful for yourself or to pass on:
1) City of Phoenix has a great link that you can use to see if properties have had permits pulled and see inspections that were completed.  Whether it is to investigate a home you are looking to purchase or one you already simply input the address and can check on ANY home!
**If you are looking to find out permit information for a property in another city and have trouble let me know I would be happy to assist you in directing you who to contact or where you can go to pull that information!
2) Neighborhood Stabilization Program
The city of Phoenix received a total of $115.5 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds to help stabilize Phoenix neighborhoods impacted by the foreclosure crisis. NSP homeownership programs offer $15,000 loans for down payment and closing costs and up to $40,000 for repairs of foreclosed homes in select ZIP codes.  No payments, zero interest.  Approximately $39.5 million is reserved for the acquisition and rehabilitation of foreclosed multi-family apartment communities to create or preserve affordable rental units (at or below 50 percent area median income) and/or eliminate blighting conditions.  For more information you can go to:
