Shopping for a a home is a process. It should be done with planning, preparation and perseverance.  Many would-be buyers jump right into looking for a home and don't lay the foundation(pun intended) for and exceptional experience for the home buying process.  My real estate business is focused on providing a exceptional experience so the first thing I focus on is planning.  I meet with my buyers to discuss the entire process, if buyers won't put in the time, we probably aren't the right fit.  After meeting for about 30 minutes in my office we convene with a home shopping plan. The first step of the plan always includes meeting with my lender( or another qualified lender) to get their financing approved. How can you go shopping without looking in your bank account?  Once we are done with...

Bellevue WA - We had a short sale recently with a certain loan servicing company. The funny thing was that this loan servicer was hired by the owner of the loan to work on behalf of them. In other words, the loan servicer was to look out for the loan owner's best interest. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. Processing and approving a short sale will usually avoid future losses on a mortgage. Boston Consulting Group recently did a study on the difference between a short sale and foreclosure. They found that a short sale dramatically reduces future losses when compared to a foreclosure. Here is a real life example: One lender rejected a 385k short sale offer. The home was foreclosed upon and put up for sale. It sold for $230,000...

via www.operationbaldeagle.org Veterans now have a advocate back home with Operation Bald Eagle.  Last week I met Jeff, the man behind Operation Bald Eagle and I was immediately immersed in a conversation about how OBE helps families of fallen heroes as well as troops returning from combat. Operation Bald Eagle is about serving the men and women who serve to protect us in their time of need. We believe that these patriot's and their immediate families should be honored by their service to our communities and our country. It is because of these patriot's that our nation is what it is today. We are committed to being a 911 response to our heroes when called upon.

Bank Owned Homes in Sammamish WA   I have broken down Sammamish's sales from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service in 3 sections, Bank Owned, Shortsales(Pre-foreclosures), and "Arms Length" Transactions.  Some points of interest; the median home sales price is $275,000, $815,000 & $587,990 this bank owned with the best price and the limited supply of REO's may make Bank Owned Real Estate(REO) the best value/deal for home buyers.  One should always rely on a REALTOR to give them a clear idea of value when purchasing a home. While short sales may seem attractive they take longer to close.  Bank Owned Homes(REO's) are already approved and a buyer is negotiating directly with  the bank.

This weeks economic news shows that there is a silver lining in these dark clouds.  Confidence is up more than expected. Housing prices continue to slump in the wake of the housing credit expiration.  Here is a link to the Case-Shiller housing index report.  The Seattle Area is down 2.8% The Conference Board’s sentiment index climbed to 50.2, exceeding the median forecast in a Bloomberg News survey, from a revised 48.6 in September, according to figures from the New York-based research group today Home prices in 20 U.S. cities rose at a slower pace than forecast in August from a year earlier, reflecting slumping sales as the effects of a tax credit waned. via www.bloomberg.com The truth of the matter is that the housing market is in for a long recovery just like the rest of the country....

Two Lake Sammamish waterfront homes in the city of Sammamish were sold in September. The first home is on a 1/3 acre lot, with 62 feet of waterfront. The unique characteristic of the property is its boathouse with attached studio unit. As most waterfront home owners know, it's extremely difficult to build any structures near the shoreline in the Seattle area, and especially hard to build a boathouse, because of local regulations. A structure like this is grandfathered in, and the owners have the unique ability to maintain a lakeside residence that most couldn't build. The property also has a mid-1970s 2 bedroom home as the main residence, and it sold for around $850,000. It was on the market less than three months, and sold for 90% of its list price. The second sale of the month was a l...
