A dilemma for seniors wary of scams - helping seniors to recognize scams is the first step to overcoming paranoia and proactively resisting fraud.

Palo Alto: Supervisors put $8 million in pot to save mobile home park - Santa Clara County officials gave the 400 residents of Buena Vista Mobile Home Park a reason for hope in the form of an $8 million pledge toward buying the valuable 4.5 acres on El Camino Real where they've long lived. It's just a start -- the property's value is estimated at between $25 million and $30 million

January Home Prices Increase - The 2015 housing market is off to a very strong start, according to Redfin. In January, the median home sale price fell 1.2 percent from December, one-third of the price decline seen a year ago, and the smallest January home-price decline in at least the past seven years. January's median home price is actually up 7.6 percent year over year. Redfin’s data is based on data from home sales recorded in the first three weeks of January.

7.3 Million Boomerang Buyers Poised to Recover Homeownership in Next Eight Years - In 2015, the first wave of 7.3 million homeowners who lost their home to foreclosure or short sale during the foreclosure crisis will pass the seven-year window they conservatively need to repair their credit and qualify to buy a home. More waves of these potential boomerang buyers will be moving past that seven-year window over the next eight years corresponding to the eight years of above historically normal foreclosure activity from 2007 to 2014, according to an analysis by RealtyTrac.
