Since I have an investor client who is in the process of rehabbing a home in the Tanglewilde neighborhood in Lacey WA, I have been keeping tabs on the real estate market in the neighborhood.  Tanglewilde is a large neighborhood, so there is a fair amount of real estate activity at any given time....

Seems like all of the home inspectors on my recommended list have been getting booked out further and furt...
Although this morning was a bit cloudy and drizzly in Olympia, a stop at Spooner Strawberry Farm on Yelm Highway has me believing that summer isn't just a hopeless dream.  Strawberries are ripe, direct from the field - and so, so yummy!   I bought a half flat today so there would be some to share...
