 The latest housing report from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service reads more like a real estate boom than the typical down-market stories we've been reading this year.  While sales from August to September had their usual cyclical decrease, our market showed significantly stronger stats in nearly every other category as compared to the same time last year.  The NWMLS covers the greater Seattle real estate market and adjacent counties. Inventories are low, which is totally unexpected in this market full of distressed sales.  Interest rates are historically low.  Sales have picked up significantly.  From the NWMLS: Pending sales for the Northwest MLS service area, which encompasses 21 counties, are up more than 20 percent from a year ago. Following typical August-to-September pattern...

Before Washington became a state early pioneers like Yesler were already building on the tide lands of Elliott Bay and elsewhere around Puget Sound. Known as “tideland jumpers”, these early developers were actually building their piers and mills on the waterfront illegally. Before statehood, the federal government held all tide lands in trust for the territory.

During the 1889/1890 legislature the state solved this challenge by granting itself the authority to sell public tidelands thus creating a revenue stream. The sale of public tide lands by the state lasted until 1971. In 1890 the tide la...
