When it comes to real estate clichés, “Location, location, location” has all other contenders (including “Not a drive-by!”; “Cash is king!”; “Is that your checkbook or are you just glad to see me?”; and “Worst house, best street”) beat by a mile. Not only has it been in use since at least 1926 (according to the New York Times), but it’s utterly and inarguably true.

More than any other single factor, when you buy a home in a good location, it’s usually a solid long-term investment. And being the unabashed optimists we are here at The Cascade Team, we focus most on the factors that help maximize your home’s value. But hey, life—and real estate—isn’t always rainbows and unicorns. So this week we decided to take a look at the downers: those things that

Open houses may be staged to look like a home décor dream, but don’t let that distract you from the real reason you’re there: to potentially buy a home. Make sure you can look past the neatly arranged furniture and focus solely on whether the house would be a good fit for you and your family. To help, here’s a home buyer’s checklist of things you might have missed at first glance.

Windows – Look specifically if they are facing the right direction to let sunlight in, and whether they open to a nice view (versus directly toward another neighbor’s window).

Under the Sink Cabinets – Check for possible signs of water damage due to leaky plumbing.

Electrical Outlets – Make sure there are enough outlets for the appliances and other electronics

Here are a few reasons why: Now is the time to sell.

Here are just a few reason why 2016 is the time to sell!  Homeowners are sitting on gold mines these days and many do not even realize it.  Since the market has bounced back many homeowners are sitting on equity.  With low inventory homes are selling in record time!  The only downfall is the lack of homes available on the market.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SELL.  You will have much more buying power for your next property.  If you wish to upgrade now is the time.  As prices continue to rise through the peak sales month of April through July now is time to take advantage.

We’re in for another crazy spring real estate market! KIRKLAND, Washington (March 7, 2016) – Home prices in King County hit new highs in February as buyers tried to outbid each other for the sparse inventory in much of Western Washington.

Snohomish County reported about 1.5 months, Pierce had slightly more than 2.1 months, and Kitsap County was at about 2.3 months.

With the number of single family homes for sale in King County down nearly 30

KIRKLAND, Washington (March 7, 2016) – Home prices in King County hit new highs in February as buyers tried to outbid each other for the sparse inventory in much of Western Washington.

"We’re in for another crazy spring real estate market," predicts J. Lennox Scott, chairman and CEO of John L. Scott, Inc.
