If you're about to make an offer on a home, one of the most critical contingencies you need to add to the offer is a home inspection. You want to know exactly what you're getting before the deal is done, or you risk losing thousands of dollars on repairs.

 

See our: Home Owners Remodeling and Life Expectancy Guide

Items that need to be checked by a licensed home inspector include: the roof, foundation, plumbing, heating, and electrical systems. It's also important to check for signs of wood-destroying pests, mold, and other damages to the property. A proper inspection will take roughly three hours, and generally costs a few hundred dollars.

Help us Brighten a Child's Life!

For the 11th year, The Cascade Team is once again hosting Project Crayon Drive this April! For the young who find themselves at Seattle Children’s Hospital, sometimes the simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors. Yet, something as simple as crayons often goes overlooked. Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, but each child only gets a couple to use.

And that’s where The Cascade Team — in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Guild Association and several area merchants — comes in. Throughout the month of April, agents from The Cascade Team will be walking neighborhoods and spreading the word about

Is Anyone There?

One home I showed my client in Inman, S.C., gave us a chill. When we arrived, the house was dark and apparently empty. After I flipped on the light switch in the living room, we headed to the bedrooms in the back of the house. While we were in one bedroom, we both heard banging and what sounded like someone moving around in the other bedroom on the other side of the bathroom. “Hello?” I called out. There was no response.

Though we were sure we were freaking ourselves out, neither of us was brave enough to check the other bedroom. When we went back into the living room, the kitchen light on the

  • Inventory takes another steep fall (Down 25%)
  • Prices spike rising 20.7% 

Puget Sound area home sales slow (but not prices) as supply can’t match demand

KIRKLAND, Washington (April 4, 2016) – Traffic isn’t the only thing that is gridlocked around many Puget Sound communities. "We’re experiencing gridlock in the Puget Sound housing market," suggested J. Lennox Scott in reaction to the latest statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

MLS figures show pending sales across the 23 counties it serves dropped about 4.5 percent in March compared to the same period a year ago. Inventory fell sharply – down more than 25 percent. Brokers say that imbalance helped spur a 9.4 percent escalation in prices area-wide, with 12
