Find a little comfort in the history of the housing market

While the current health crisis is unprecedented, the housing market is surprisingly predictable. Research shows that over the past 40 years, the U.S. housing industry — and home prices — have been fairly resistant to recessions caused by everything from world wars to natural disasters. If you’re feeling a little anxious about the state of real estate, here are some things to keep in mind.

According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) House Price Index (HPI), single-family home prices typically rise an average of 7.4% leading up to a recession and continue to rise by an average 2.7% during an economic downturn. The o...

The weather is officially heating up in the valley. Here are some easy ideas to stay cool in the Arizona heat.





  • Turn off the lights




  • Block out the sun - blackout curtains or window tinting/film works wonders




  • Keep all windows and door closed




  • Drink LOTS of fluids




  • Don’t overwork your electronics




  • Cook outdoors - this will keep the heat out of the house

HOWEVER, ONE THING YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF: A.M. BEST OPERATES WITH REVENUES RECEIVED FROM THOSE VERY SAME INSURANCE COMPANIES THAT THEY ARE EVALUATING.
