Getting the most for your home or property means doing more than putting a "For Sale" sign out front. In a competitive market where new homes for sale are added daily, your listing needs to be seen in a variety of places in order to stand out. And sometimes the right buyer is waiting out of state, or even in another country. To ensure sure your home gets noticed and sells without a hitch for full market value, understand what working with a top brokerage with the areas best agents and most cutting edge technology means for you.... It could mean the difference between no sale, and the payoff you've been waiting for.

Your Home is your greatest investment! Know these questions and answers before you interview! The difference can cost you thousands!

It’s summer vacation time for my family and me, so as my wife Janet frets about sun screen, reservations for dinner, and how we’ll keep the kids entertained and still manage some alone time for ourselves my mind of course wonders to the big question of: What do I have the greatest chance of being bitten, eaten or killed by while I’m off enjoying a few days of relaxation?

I mean “Hey” aren’t you afraid of sharks? We went to Hawaii and Myrtle Beach last summer and let me tell you that you should be, what with their insatiable appetite and 15 rows of serrated teeth and the way they lurk in that murky area just offshore where you can't see the bottom and you can't move quickly and, oh God, did something just brush up against my leg?

  • Double-Digit Gains in Sold Home Prices
  • Double Digit Gains in Sales
  • Triple-Whammy For Home Buyers

KIRKLAND, Washington (June 4, 2015) – Home buyers are in "full sprint" mode while sellers are stalling, according to brokers from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. As a result, MLS members are juggling severe inventory shortages and multiple offers in many Seattle neighborhoods and beyond.

MLS figures for May show double-digit drops in inventory compared to a year ago and double-digit gains in both sales and prices. Commenting on the numbers, Northwest MLS director Dick Beeson said "The crush between the lack of inventory and desperate buyers may soon generate the next TV reality show! The stressed…
