Got books?  Packing in Kenmore, Washington.  Do you love to read?  Do you cherish your books?   Do you need to move?That was us.  We love books.  Science fiction, fantasy, murder mysteries, and even some high falutin literature thrown in for good measure.  We basically decorated our house in books, floor to ceiling, basement to bedroom.  We’ve read them all and sometimes we read them again.  Yes, we got books!  But then we needed to move.  Not that far, but even if you move two blocks you have to put everything in boxes.  And that was a whole lot of packing.  Way too much packing.  We’re in software.  That means, we’re employed more than full time.  We didn’t have time to even think about moving, let alone do it!Our Realtor told us about Moving Forward.We met with them for one day, a Sa...

2011 Market Report for Kenmore, Washington2011 Market Report for Kenmore, WashingtonKenmore real estate.  Once considered the "hinterland" to those on the "other" side of the lake, now an enclave of folks not wanting to be "in city" nor wanting to be "in the woods".  Long one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in King County, Kenmore real estate  was on a lot of peoples minds and conversations in 2011.

Bellevue Short Sales: Why Lenders Back Off When Threatened With Bankruptcy Bellevue WA – Bankruptcy is one of the scariest words a lender can hear. A bankruptcy filing can stall their ability to foreclose by 6 months, and sometimes as long as a year. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. The lenders know that most bankruptcies will cause them to lose the ability to pursue you for any losses. This means they can’t go after you for any upside down debt. The only thing a lender gets in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is any collateral they have on a loan. So they can foreclose on your house, but that is about the only thing they can do. They can’t garnish your wages or bank accounts. So use the bankruptcy threat in your negotiations. Lenders...

  Bellevue Short Sale: What you can expect during and after the Bellevue Short Sale Process Bellevue WA – Here are a few things you should not be surprised to see crop up during the short sale process. Unscruplous Debt Collection Tactics. If you are facing financial hardship, then paying credit cards and other unsecured debts is your lowest priority. An unsecured debt is a debt where they can’t take away your car or house. A secured debt has something as collateral, such as your car, house, or anything else of value.

New research suggests the whole world could switch to renewable energy sources using current tech in just 20 to 40 years. It would cost no more than current energy, and would have big economic and eco payoffs. The only barriers are down to social, business, and political inertia. We all know about renewable energy--it's been around for years, and is key to solving the global warming (and end-of-oil) crisis. Nowadays it's good to be green, and research into the millions of different aspects of the tech is skyrocketing. But a Stanford research team has just compiled an innovative, lateral-thinking study that says even using current available technology the entire world could switch 100% of its energy needs to renewable sources in just a handful of decades. How is this possible? Current t...

Bellevue WA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Steve. Here is Steve's Question. "I divorced six years ago. We had had our home on the market for some time, but it wasn't selling. My ex needed money to buy another home. Since it wasn't selling, we refinanced and split the equity. She used the money to buy another house and I stayed here. I put the home back on the market a little while later. Today, several years later it still isn't selling. The market value today is $267,000. I owe over $300,000 today. I am having trouble making the payments. I asked my agent about a short sale, but they didn't offer any help. I want to do the right thing, but can't afford the home anymore. I have called GMAC, but they haven't offered any help either. Should I just stop...

Bellevue WA – This is one of the first questions potential short sale sellers ask us. “I heard of something called “forgiveness of debt income and that it is taxable. How does that work?” they ask. The following article is my personal opinion only. I recommend that you consult with a competent legal or tax professional before moving forward with a short sale. In most cases the answer is that a short sale will usually not cause you to owe income tax. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. It used to be that you owed income tax on any forgiveness of debt. When a lender decides to forgive all or a portion of a borrower's debt, the forgiven amount is considered as income for the borrower and is liable to be taxed. Here are the follow...

Bellevue WA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Richard. “I accepted a job transfer and had to move. Unfortunately we were upside down on the house. I decided to rent it out rather than short sale it. The renters just moved out. I just checked the house. They trashed it! I could rent the house out again, but I would have to spend several thousand dollars fixing it up first. What would you recommend that I do?” Richard asked. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. Here was our recommendation. That is a tough situation. You could fix up the house and rent it out again. But, you risk having the same thing happen all over again. Here is the other problem. The amount you can charge for rent has gone down...
