Cute West Seattle Home (not for sale)

Today I am hosting an open house in West Seattle the house is listed for sale in the $350,000 to $400,000 range.  There are currently 22 homes in the West Seattle listed for sale at $400,000 and under. Many of these are affordable because they generally need updating, and that can be a great way to build equity in your home over the years, and get into a neighborhood that is close to Downtown Seattle. Homes closer to an urban area like Seattle are usually more desirable than homes in outlying suburban areas and have greater value over time, though they cost more initially.

Because of the shortage of homes for sale this coming Spring in the Seattle areas, this house is expected to have multiple offers and sell fast. I know this makes it very frustrating to be a buyer looking for a home right now, and if you are ready, knowledgeable and have an expert like me to help you with strategy, you can buy a home this Spring!

Update March 15th, 2016:
The house I hosted the open house at sold on March 11th 2016 for $417,000, 11% over the list price of $374,950.  There were multiple offers which were reviewed on March 5th, the house was listed on February 26th, 2016.  At my open house, when asked my opinion on what price I thought the house would sell for, I thought in the $410k to $425k range – close!

Northwest Flower & Garden Show 2015 Display

Northwest Flower & Garden Show is here this week!

NWF&GS 2015, 7, Art of Real Estate blogThe Northwest Flower & Garden Show is just the thing to inspire you when the cold, gray, and drizzly days of Seattle and Puget Sound have been pummelling you down. This year the dates for the show are February 17th to the 21st, 2016 as usual at the Seattle Convention Center. I have been many times since I moved to Seattle and it is always a joy to walk in and see the amazing display gardens, the color, the design, the whimsey, the fragrance and the beauty! So many ideas in the display gardens and the marketplace with wondrous things for your garden and home – I love it!

NWF&GS 2015, 1, Art of Real Estate blogAt the NWF&GS, there are many gardening lectures to learn and inspire, and the first time I attended the show, I was still an apartment dweller. I had been gardening in pots on balconies for years and wanted to learn how to make a garden in the house I was planning on buying in Seattle and was just itching to make a garden! I have learned so much over the years at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show and love talking about how much I have learned and been inspired by it.
