[Best Syndication News] Housing Prices increased by 10 percent in Southern California. There still is plenty of foreclosures but there is less of them now, which could be part of the reason for the rise in housing prices. February home sales increased from the previous year and the median price that was paid for a house also went up compared to the year before, according to MDA DataQuick.

In Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties there was a total of 15,359 homes sold in February. This stayed almost the same quantity compared to the month of January. The average going back to 1988 is 17,983 homes sold so there still is a lag in housing sale for the area.

Low priced foreclosed properties still are happening but the report says that they are not as big as a year ago.

[Best Syndication News] With the threat of individual health insurance plans in California potentially being kicked out of the state for possible non-compliance with the state laws, some people with individual health insurance policies are probably holding their breath in hopes to have reasonably priced health insurance that will still cover them. The question looms in many people's minds how do you get health insurance if you can't afford it or if you have a pre-existing condition. Here are some different ideas to get health insurance or medical care when you have a pre-existing condition.

A divorced lady was sharing her plan to get health insurance coverage on the day-time syndicated television show 'The Doctors.' She has posted her plea for a man to marry that has a good health insurance plan. So far she has received 7,000 marriage proposals. The doctors asked her if she would seriously marry someone just for good health insurance. She said yeah, but at the same time she hasn't agreed to marry anyone yet. She pointed out on the show that if she went to prison she could get the necessary health care and medication. She spends 90 percent of her income paying for her medications and medical care. She is a working person that can't get health insurance, but if she marries she could get covered.
