    Most would-be buyers and sellers believe the real estate “deal” is negotiated at the signing of the contract.

    In many cases, the deal-making and negotiations only start at the contract signing. Even in more competitive real estate markets, negotiations still happen once in escrow.

    Issues typically arise after the home inspection, and those issues tend to result in another round of negotiations for credits or fixes.

    Here are three buyer tips for negotiating repairs after a home inspection.

    1. Ask for a credit for the work to be done

    The sellers are on their way out. If the property is moving toward closing, they’re likely packing and dreaming of their life post-sale. The last thing they want to do is repair work on their old

    The days are getting longer. Ice cream truck jingles echo up and down the block. But the surest sign that summer is here? It just might be those "For Sale" signs popping up like dandelions in your neighborhood.

    Yep, we're smack dab in the middle of the most popular time of the year to buy and sell a home. If you're thinking of starting your home search, your first instinct as a savvy shopper might be to stay away and wait for the weather—and the market—to cool down. Why battle the crowds and bidding wars if you're in no rush to move?

    1. Prices aren't necessarily higher

    A huge myth about the real estate market is that homes sell for more in the summer and less in the winter. This is simply not true!

    Let's be clear:

    View from Issaquah Highlands to Seattle:

    by Tatevik Aprikyan

    What do you think? How much would you be willing to pay to protect your view? Our area is growing at an amazing pace with new neighborhoods, remodels, and much needed new housing all over. Can you put a price on the peace of mind in knowing your current view will last?

    SEATTLE — Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and now a popular trend in some of the country’s largest metropolitan areas is becoming more common here in Seattle.

    People are buying air above homes to protect views, usually from new construction or neighbors wanting to remodel and build larger homes that will block views.

    Imagine a house lower down on a hill and a home above it. The home

    Help Sellers Choose Between Multiple Offers

    Juggling multiple offers is an enviable problem to have, but it isn’t always easy territory to navigate. For clients who think the highest bid is the default choice, it’s important to explain that price is just part of the calculation. Other factors include move-in timeline, potential appraisal and inspection contingencies, the amount of earnest money a buyer is willing to put down, and negotiations around home repairs, among other issues.

    When Less Is More

    Some sellers come into the process with priorities that are more important to them than the sale price. Make sure you know what those are at the start so that you can help weed out bidders who are not able to meet the
