OK, SO I'm exaggerating. But it does totally amaze me how many people seem to find Payson, Arizona, and are interested in buying homes here. Payson is a very small town. When we moved here 15 yrs ago the population was 8,000+. The last I heard we are now near 16,000. When I am down in the Phoenix...

  Hi from Payson, AZ  OK, I admit it. Payson is going to be hot today. How hot, you ask? We're supposed to be 96 today! Now if you're from back East or North, you may thinking "that IS hot", but if you're from Arizona's deserts, you're probably thinking "what a wimp!"       Actually I'm being si...
