    Last week, I was talking to a young couple I know that was about to close on their first home. They were riding the wild rollercoaster of current mortgage rate swings and were not happy about the mortgage process overall. Yet, when the conversation shifted to finally living in a home that they own, their disposition changed dramatically.   A smile came across their faces as they talked about decorating their son’s bedroom and how much he will enjoy the backyard. They talked about inviting friends over for dinner and their family over for the holidays. The more they talked, the more excited they became.   I asked them if many of their friends were also buying. I was shocked to find out that they weren’t. Why not? Their friends believed that homeownership was financially unobtainable ...

We Want To Buy You A House In Bellevue   Sounds outrageous, right? But its true. We want to buy you a house, and it will be free and clear.   The Timing Is Right Prices in our area went up 12% in 2012, 13% in 2013 and roughly 11% so far in 2014. Looking ahead, we think prices are going to continue to go up over the next 5 years. This would not have worked in the period from 2007 to 2011, and it may not be favorable to do this in the future, but we think the timing is great right now.   We Want To Buy a High Quality House We have preselected high quality houses in high quality neighborhoods. You can choose any of the houses from those we have already chosen. Some neighborhoods are likely to continue to go up in value. We would like to own a house there because we would like to have price...

  The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by ‘supply and demand’.  If the supply of an item is larger than the amount of people looking to purchase that item, the price will decrease. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), historically there is a natural decline in buyers looking to purchase a home (also known as foot traffic) as the winter months approach. Shown in the graph below:     NAR goes a step further to say that there is a direct correlation between “foot traffic” and “pending contracts/closed sales one to two months later”. Bottom Line The real estate market has done well to recover from the slow start we experienced due in part to the inclement weather at the beginning of 2014.  But with those winter months right around the c...
