Real Estate Terminology You'll See When Shopping For a Homein Vancouver & Clark County, WashingtonVancouver WA Real estate ads are sprinkled with terminology that often puzzles consumers who don't have applied knowledge of the Real Estate industry's lingo.

May 2007 Real Estate Market Condition Report for Vancouver Washington's East MLS AreasThis report has been prepared as a simple tabulation of homes in the Vancouver WA real estate data base, separated into price ranges, and: Active, Pending and Sold categories.

Yes, we have moved to the Salmon Creek (Washington) office of RE/MAX Equity Group, Inc.! Although we primarily work out of our home offices and as well as our “on the road” offices (Coffee & Bagel Shops) this location is where our primary brokerage is now located. We made this move for several reasons, but in the end, we wanted to improve our ability to provide excellent service, and this office is truly committed to this goal! We are excited to announce this change and look forward to helping you, your friends and family, and anyone you know and like who could use our help with real estate. Don’t keep us a secret!

Great curb appeal goes a long way toward attracting buyers to a home that is for sale. Many of our sales have been generated by a "For Sale" sign in front of a home that is beautifully landscaped.

They can give you tips on what will look good in your yard, considering the time of year, the available light, and the type of plants that do well in the area.
