For consumers/homeowners with an ARM (adjustable rate mortgage), get some helpful advice from the Spending Coach.  They claim to be non profit, not sure if I believe there is any such thing - but what I see is a Website that has no advertising and they are not trying to sell you anything.   They look at your situation and help you get a grip on where you are - the crucial first step in making a decision about what to do.  The sad truth is most people with an ARM are confused, and most people with an ARM are in trouble - sooner rather than later.

Zillow debuted on 02/09/06.  This website speaks to buyers, sellers, and owners.  They completely ignore lenders.  This website is going to be a big deal in this business.

DMOZ directory --  Real Estate Appraisal -- 11/26/05 there are 9 Colorado listings.  3 don't work, and Ron Harp is located in Arizona.  12/25/05 - 8 listings with no dead links.  Ron Harp is still located in Arizona, this site is likely in the wrong category (should be Arizona not Colorado).
