Comments and advice on the Real Estate market in Washington State and the housing market in and around Wenatchee, East Wenatchee and the Wenatchee Valley.
A few years ago I had a group of friends at my house one evening for dinner. Following dinner, and with a good bottle of wine, we sat at the table and discussed the good old USA until the wee hours. What made this a little unusual is one person was from Germany, he and his family had escaped the ...
A small attractive community just south of Wenatchee is Malaga. Malaga will one day be discovered. It has great rural feel, large lots (many on or around Three Lakes), a municipal golf course and irrigation water. Originally a FHA subsidized community, it has now grown into its own. Houses in the...
Waterville Washington is the county seat of Douglas County. It is located about 25 miles east of Wenatchee (the geographical center of the state). It is a farm community. At this time of year it is surrounded by literally millions of acres of green, dry land wheat. Listings in Waterville are part...
The Wenatchee Valley is a great place to live or visit! Housing in the Wenatchee area is comparatively affordable and the cost of living has a couple pluses from weather, cheap power and local agriculture that help make up for some other higher priced items. We are only 2.5 hours from Seattle, ha...
Yesterday (1/19/2010) I attended Brian Buffini's Success Seminar in Seattle. A free event!!! (Actually kudos to Wells Fargo Mortgage for being the sponsor). Since it was Brian it was, of course, a success! In fact I would say it was the best 2-3 hours I hav4e EVER spent in a work.motivational con...
This weekend I wrote an offer on a house. Two problems (ok challenges) the purchasers (also first time homebuyers) did not speak a word of English but they brought dad along who was fairly proficient but in day to day stuff not re lingo and the house is a short sale (which i have previously vowed...
I enjoy writing an occasional piece for the local paper. It is a change of pace and tests skills I don't always use. This particular one is about growing up in Wenatchee and the role radio played... much better than! Anyway for those of you that might be interested or that want to take a...
If you are old enough you may remember the song from the movie MASH. The dentist had some issues so they were going to give him a little pill to solve everything. I think as REALTORS we often look for the magic bullet or pill (as a society we do too) There has to be another solution, a better qui...
Last week was a beautiful fall week weather wise. Great, spectacular weather is something we experience in Central Washington (entirely different from the West side i.e.Seattle). Sky was blue, air was clear and foliage was in full color. Just time for a quick walk along the Banks of the Columbia ...
This morning I read the following post and I agree! (See below). In fact I had to chime in with more thoughts. We have all seen them... overpriced and out of the market but still in MLS. Before going on I have to subscribe to full disclosure and that is I have had a few too... but some of the one...
