Don't be scared to turn out, ghouls and ghosts are out for the day! We've got kind of a soggy weekend going here, but people in Seattle and across Lake Washington in Bellevue are used to the rain, after all, this is home to Active Rain!  Hope to see some neighbors and buyers stop in to see this ...
What a great summary of the reasons to list now!  I just yesterday said many of these things to a client of mine who will likely have his home ready in 2-3 weeks.  Over the last 30 days, one of my listings has had 14 showings, and this in a home priced at $870,000 in outlying Redmond (home to Mi...
Today I made a commercial real estate referral to an agent in Bethlehem, PA from Bellevue, WA.  My home listing client mentioned he had a property there he wanted to sell.  I asked him if he would allow me to source the agent for him, and make an outgoing referral.  He said sure, so I went on ww...

For those of us who felt like we couldn't get the "real estate flu" to the extent that other states were experiencing, now we know that the press can manipulate markets everywhere, even Seattle, which was just re-ranked the third most desireable city in the United States to live.  It didn't help ...
This is my first blog entry, so just testing the water a bit!  We are so lucky to be part of a healthy market here in the Greater Seattle marketplace, we are thankful to be sure.  How many of you are willing to predict that we are going to come out of this anemic phase of sales by summer?  Or wil...
