I see your question never got much response so I will see if I can help.

I provide Buyer Agent service all over Central area and show hundreds of houses each month . In some areas we never see Scorpions. I don't think I have seen more than one in the last 3 years. They are treated just like any other pest-call -- the exterminator or go to Home depot to buy chemicals. Having said that there are areas that are more prone to the problem. These areas are more likely to be more rural areas that are less developed or newer outlying developments.

To get a professional opinion, call Charles Stamper at HomeTeam Pest Defense 602-889-7564.

Some types of scorpions have virtually no venom and others are more risky. They don't like to sit in the hot sun, so they hide and nest in dark places. One of the areas where they nest are inside the block wall fences we have out here if there are cracks in the wall that give them access to the hollow blocks. Fix the cracks and you deprive them of a nesting place. There are some people that hunt them, by going out at night with a Black light (the scorpions glow under the UV light). I found this Youtube clip. showing a father hunting with his young son.

Hi Will:

One of the issues you are going to face, being "only" separated, is the uncertainty of what is going to happen due to the eventual divorce. In other words, are you going to be told to pay child support or alimony; for what amounts; which debts are you going to have to take on and which will your spouse? With all this uncertainty, lenders are going to be reluctant to give an approval.

This is in addition to the answers below. You will need your spouse (you are still married) to sign on the loan or sign-off on the disclaimer, if you can get approved. Remember, not telling your full financial story is committing mortgage fraud.

Good luck.

Tolleson has one of the highest crime rates in the Phoenix metro area. The baseline killer murdered those 2 ladies in the food van back in 2006 at 91st avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. Also in the same area the 2 kids were bludgeoned to death around Christmas time by a random stranger. For some reason the people of Tolleson also feel that they are impervious to red lights which has further killed even more residents. We finally left that miserable city after having our new house robbed once and almost a second time. The bad people moved in after all the foreclosures and this trend will continue. Good luck in your search and I hope this will help. ... more
