I'm hoping some of you in the AR community might have recent experiences with interim financing, or bridge loans. When I started out in 2005, as most of you know, the money spigot seemed to be on pretty much full-blast, everywhere you looked. In fact, the brokerage where I worked at the time off...
Opportunity knocks! This is a rare, grandfathered duplex on a 6500+ SF lot  which enjoys 40 ft. of Puget Sound waterfront & tideland rights in the heart of Beach Drive. Currently configured as single family home, this secluded oasis feels a world away,yet is just a few minutes to the Alaska Junct...
West Seattle's Best Buy! Don't miss this great home, a short walk to Lincoln Park, one block from the new "Rapid Ride" station, and easy access to downtown. Storage and space abound in this wonderfully planned home. All three bedrooms up, and they're big! walk-through master closet leads to maste...
The other day we referenced a Seattle Times article addressing the fact that the number of homes for sale in Seattle is way down from this time last year. I wanted to see how West Seattle’s numbers stacked up to the rest of Seattle, and we are definitely “a statistic” on this front: In February 2...
  It seems to be almost a knee-jerk reaction when I see friends & acquaintances- the second or third thing out of their mouths is: “so, how’s the market?” I’m pretty sure I get a perplexed and slightly pained look on my face. In over seven years, I really haven’t figured out how to answer that qu...
  I must confess I rather enjoy it when the weather basically forces us all to stop, take a deep breath, and engage with our thoughts rather than rush through our daily routine. After a few inches of snow that actually stuck yesterday (a relatively rare occurrence in Seattle), the city appears la...
I am so sick and tired of listing agents playing God. If you receive an offer on your listing please don't call me and tell me your seller can't get back to me today because he has to go to a party. I'm going to encourage my buyers to move on, and I'm never showing another one of your listings ag...
If you're a numbers geek (I won't mention any names, like Roger's, oops), the first few days of January are kind of like another Christmas, in that you can look up MLS statistics for all of last year, and bundle them into a nice little package. Of course, life, nor the market, really work this wa...
O.k. I'm just going to come out and say it: I'm a total sucker for all that "year in review" propaganda that we'll be seeing on TV this week. One minute I'll be diligently writing a blog post, and the next I'm entranced by something as horrendous as "The 100 Biggest Celebrity Oopses of 2011!" Wit...
There's this enormous, I might even call it, "stately mansion" at the top of a hill, as you enter in to one of Seattle's more prestigious neighborhoods. Since the street approaching it is an elevated arterial, it's one of the only ways in or out of the neighborhood. So, I can only guess that seve...
