Sales of waterfront homes in the Seattle metro region in 2013 continue to outpace the previous year's sales, as we head into the fall.  We're seeing a surprising uptick in pending sales, where we'd usually start to see a stronger drop-off at this point in the year.  Pending October sales of waterfront residential properties in King County rose to 75 transactions in October, up from 47 in the previous month. Seattle Waterfront Homes, Pending and Closed Sales That 60 percent increase in pending sales is obviously good news for the market, but overstates the overall trend of healthy, measured gains and a moderately appreciating market.  Compared to the same month in 2012, the current number of pending sales is up about 21 percent, which is much more reflective of the market's strength.

Silent Sunday, Seattle from Alki Point.  While working a new listing in West Seattle, I couldn't help but take my wife for a drive down Alki Point at sunset and take in the view.  We live in an incredibly beautiful place, whether urban, suburan or rural, the views are great.

We've been talking a lot about the lack of inventory in the Greater Seattle real estate market.  The shrinking number of homes available for sale has not only affected the overall market, but it seems to be having a significant effect on the waterfront inventory as well. "Months of Inventory" is a term we use that basically captures the absorption rate in the market:  based on how many homes are selling each month, how many months would it take for the current market of active listings to be sold?  While we had up to 19 months of inventory just a couple of years ago, we're now seeing just five months of waterfront inventory.   This basically puts us back into a sellers' market, which is a nice change of pace for the waterfront/luxury market.  The upswing in sales at all price levels see...

It has become an accepted part of our daily lives. We sort, reuse and recycle. And that is a very good thing.  Many folks like to use the blue glass bottles we can purchase waters in, as garden or yard art. Although it isn't for everyone, when I see the sun sparkling through these humble masterpieces, I am always satisfied with their effect. There is one home on Alki that for me, is a must see when we venture out for a winter walk along the strand. Just one more reason to love living in Seattle!

There's an interesting phenomenon happening in the real estate buying cycle.  Now that most of the country is five to seven years out from its real estate peak, and most major cities are actually into the upswing of home prices, distressed homeowners of yesteryear are becoming the home buyers of today. Rules for qualifying for a mortgage vary widely between lenders and loan programs, but one of the most-often used loans today is the FHA mortgage. Today's FHA mortgage requirements for foreclosures and bankruptcies (see your lender for exact details): A foreclosure that was discharged three years ago A bankruptcy discharged two years ago The initial reaction by many to this situation is: Again?  We've certainly all seen enough shoddy lending and lax credit practices during the last boom-b...
