    Seattle Real Estate Market Update

    Summer in the City! Hot Weather, Hot Home Sales

    Seattle is typically known for our rain but this summer we set… well almost set to be exact, an all time record for the total number of consecutive days without rain. We had over 40 days with absolutely no rain, in Seattle. Beautiful sunny days and glorious sunsets with temperatures in the low 80’s. My two Sun Gold Tomato plants, in their own enameled clay pots, on my deck have never been so happy and rewarded me with about 30 sweet delicious orange fruits each day for over two months now.

    We also had what some would say was a significant turnaround in our Seattle Real Estate Market in the first half of 2012 (January – June). Lower home inventories, the belief that the housing prices in Seattle over the last 12 months had hit the bottom and stabilized, and record low mortgage rates, were the culprits for this increase in the first half of the year. There have been some reports saying that about 35% of all home sales this year nation wide has been by investors.

    Radio Show: Avoid Mistakes with an Experienced Realtor

    What I discuss here is what advice should a good Realtor should be giving their Buyer clients.  Today there are many real estate companies that would prefer that their agent are more of a facilitator rather than giving their clients good, accurate advice on homes, neighborhoods, commutes, and the many other consideration that many people don’t even consider until sometimes it’s too late.

    Brashenomics 1-year Anniversary Party


    This was at the Brashenomics One Year Anniversary Party, video by Spotlight on Seattle.  I talk about the current Seattle Real Estate Market and what home buyers need to be thinking about when they buy a home today. Patience is a key factor and folks need to make sure they buy the right home, not the best available home at the time.  Often times Seattle home buyers look at a few homes and pick the best of those to buy.  That may work sometimes, however most buyers and first time buyers for sure, really need to take the time necessary to  understand what they really want in a home and a neighborhood
