Description

"The Phoenix area is one of the fastest growing parts of the country. Developers and home construction companies are trying to keep up with demand, so homes go up quickly; some owners say too quickly." It turns out that building inspectors were taking half the time that experts say they should. They're work loads were high. Also the developer themselves were to blame in some cases. One developer "poured sub-standard slabs for homes to save money."
