Buying a Home in the Current Economy

Five years ago, lots of Americans bought houses. To qualify for a mortgage, basically all you needed was.... a pulse. Nowadays banks are a lot more careful about lending money for anything. However, if you are one of the lucky few that have some cash and decent credit left, you can get a home for a really great price.

If you're shopping for a new house in the Phoenix area, one place you can check out is Scottsdale Fine Properties. Not only do they sell houses in Arizona, they also have homes for sale in Mazatlan, Mexico. At the time of this writing, they have a house for sale in Mazatlan for only $79,900! You can be a homeowner in Mexico for the same price as Lindsay Lohan's bar tab!

If you want to apply for a mortgage loan, you should have good credit & as much cash saved up as possible for a down payment. This will help you qualify and get the best deal possible. Oh yeah... it also helps if you have a pulse! :>

Getting Around in Phoenix Arizona

If you plan on visiting or moving to the Phoenix area, I would highly recommend having a vehicle. The public transportation system really blows. You have your choice of either riding buses that take forever, or using the Phoenix Light Rail. With the Phoenix Light Rail you have only one choice of train to take that runs a grand total of 25 miles line that runs from a ghetto in Mesa Arizona, goes through downtown Phoenix, and then ends up at another ghetto in Glendale Arizona. Some of the people that ride the buses and the light rail here are really scary. I had to take public transportation for a few days a while back when my fuel pump stopped working in my car. At the bus stop I was approached by several weird looking homeless people with scraggly beards... and that was just the females!!!

If you're visiting you can always rent a car. However, if you want to really be a baller, rent yourself a motorcycle!!! Check out D&D Motorcycle Rentals located in Tempe Arizona. Prices range from $119 to $179 a day, and they have discounts if you rent for multiple days. Having a motorcycle is a great way to pick up chicks. Just don't pick up any at the bus stop.
