 Help us Brighten a Child's Life!

For the 14th 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

‘Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,’ says HUD secretary.

By Russell Brandom:

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has filed charges against Facebook for housing discrimination, escalating the company’s ongoing fight over discrimination in its ad targeting system. The charges build on a complaint filed in August, finding that there is reasonable cause to believe Facebook has served ads that violate the Fair Housing Act.

“Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. “Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.”

Sammamish, Woodinville, Snoqualmie and more make the list!

Looking at this following list there is also a definite correlation between the wealthiest zip codes and the highest housing prices as well. Feel free to use our advanced search function here and check out any of the zip codes yourself!

Using IRS data, we were able to get a snapshot of how much money people from Washington state earned in 2016, the most recent year they have numbers for. And of the top 20 wealthiest zip codes in the state, all 20 have an average income of more than $130,000.

The average income is calculated as an average of all the tax returns from each zip code.

While zip codes can often cover more than one locale, this (and last) year's

  • Showing activity dropped more than 41 percent the week of the heaviest snow.
  • Inventory levels show a 42.3 percent jump from twelve months ago.
  • Prices appear to have bottomed out to around year-ago levels.
  • Buyers no longer going down and some feel like interest rates are on sale.
  • As February temperatures plunged, prices in most counties started heating up, rising from a year ago as well as when compared to January.

KIRKLAND, Washington (March 6, 2019) – Seattle’s snowiest month in 50 years had an obvious
chilling effect on February’s housing activity, agreed officials with Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
Statistics for last month show pending sales dropped nearly 14 percent

There’s no shortage of advice online about the best time to list, and it all goes something like this: The vast majority of home sales occur when the weather heats up, and homes sold during this time of year tend to attract high prices. Conventional wisdom tells us it’s best to list early in the year. That way, you’re sure to benefit from the Spring peak in sales, and the premium pricing during the warmer months as well. List too late, we’re warned, and you could miss this warm weather bump.

At first blush, this conventional wisdom seems particularly wise. After all, there’s one thing that all homeowners looking to sell have in common — they want to do so as quickly as possible, and for as much money as possible. Listing early, in theory, means

When it comes to quality of life and affordability around Seattle, don’t look in Seattle. Try looking at Sammamish instead, which was recently ranked in the top 10 best places to live.

Just over half an hour from Seattle, and closer still to major tech corporate campuses in Redmond and Bellevue, Sammamish attracts many of the people who work for Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia and other tech giants. The homes are pricey here, but average salaries are high too: Median family income is roughly $165,000, more than twice the median for the other spots MONEY analyzed. The current average list price for a single family residence in Sammamish is $1,227,275.

With an official motto of "Building Community Together," the city of Sammamish in King County,

Selling your home these days isn’t as simple as it used to be. With the explosion of real estate marketing on the Internet, prospective buyers can do their initial home shopping online. While this means that your listed property will be viewed by more prospective customers, it also means that many other properties will also be showcased, making for a much more competitive market.

While sales in the existing home market are expected to take a tick up early in 2019, there is a lot of concern about raising interest rates and economic uncertainty in the future. We are also looking for increasing inventory levels to start as early as March of this year with predictions of the greatest amount of housing inventory to hit the market in five years by May.

It sounds like the only question for this weekend will be are there six inches, 8 inches, or a foot of blowing snow and  frigid temperatures!  But no matter what this weekend storm brings to Puget Sound, cities around the region say they are making special plans to make sure everyone, pedestrian to drivers to firefighters, can get around safely.

Here are the published routes for snow and ice removal and plowing from the City of Sammamish!

Sammamish

Sammamish has a plowing priority system in place to clear our 400 miles of road. The plowing time required depends on several variables such as the snowstorm intensity, duration, wind, and the temperature. The Snow and Ice Route Map can be found here.

KIRKLAND, Washington (February 7, 2019) – Homebuyers around Washington state are making their
way back to the market, hoping to take advantage of improving inventory, attractive interest rates, and
more approachable sellers, according to officials with Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Northwest MLS statistics for January show year-over-year improvement in the volume of new listings
and total inventory, along with moderating selling prices. Although fewer pending sales (mutually
accepted offers) were reported than a year ago (down about 3.3 percent), January was the smallest yearover-
year decline since May 2018 when the drop was about 2.7 percent.

Commenting on the MLS statistics summarizing last month’s activity, broker Gary O’Leyar said
