Arizona is experiencing colder than usual winter. Sun City West and Sun City Grand golf courses remain open but golfers are huddling inside keeping warm. While growing up on the Big Island of Hawaii, the coldest that I can remember was 50 degrees.  I remember waking to the nippy air looking at Mauna Kea and its snow tipped peak. I'm a woose for cold weather.  Whenever it's below 60, I just want to cuddle in bed with a good book (now my Nook).  I was showing property this morning in Sun City West.  The wind was blowing profusely.  The temperature inside my car registered 37 degrees.  There was no one out at Deer Valley golf course, just the ducks and one swan, Gus I believe. I joined another Realtor for lunch at Coco's Grand in Surprise today.  A customer walked in with a thick full-leng...

Here at the end of a busy week I asked myself does it really poor when it rains.  We all know the answer is "YES".  I haven't done much, less answered any questions, about Interest only in quite some time.  This week I had 2 clients INSIST on interest only.  One gentleman is buying a home here in Sun City West and is looking to rent it out for cash flow.  Makes sense right. Clients both have 780+ credit scores $500K plus in the bank.  Slam dunk.  So like any good loan officer I just do a quick check of guidelines. Oh no you can not do interest only for a investment property.  Only 2nd homes and Primary residence qualify.  Also 30% down is required. That's right 30% DOWN. The other client wanted to do a cash out refi to 70% LTV.  Again great credit, plenty of assets.  Slam dunk.  OH no, ...
