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.
Last May (2011) I got involved in a farm that the owner wanted to sell. Didn't need to sell but made sense from a business point. It was a large organic farm of about 200 acres though only about 150 was planted. Got the basic information and provided it to a buyer. About 30 days in I met the buye...
Well they are, but here is an interesting chart from a friend at Peoples Bank (Darel Ansley who blogs here) that shows a very interesting perspective on rates... take a look. By current standards rates are low... but they have been lower... in the late 40's to about 1950 they were lower and helpe...
When I first got into this business many "older" agents told me you could pretty much take late Fall and December off as not much happened. Well I guess you could but why...with all the other agents taking time off it leaves more opportunities for those that stay and keep hitting the ball! So I f...
As you learn in real estate, markets are largely local! One region, state or city my be in the dumps and another may be rocking along.

Year end and lots of data starting to flow. It gets confusing and sometimes hard to interpret... after all real estate is local... but it is also influenced by national trends!   We all know pretty much what is going on in the interest rate world...still very low though higher. The Mortgage Banke...
Wow, coming down to the wire! Christmas and New Years around the corner. budgets, sales and family and then there is the meaning of Christmas.  So going back in time here is a link to a six minute video that is as worth watching today as it was when it came out in the '60's! Especially as we go f...
... but probably not in the way you are thinking! It snowed last night and this coming week we are supposed to see temperatures in the single digits! As a REALTOR in the Wenatchee/East Wenatchee area this creates a whole new set of circumstances we have not thought of since last February. For exa...
Interesting, banks (or so I have read) are sitting on about One Trillion in excess reserves. The Fed is trying to put additional cash into the economy and risking inflation. Banks are quick to point out that there is a) low demand and b) credit risk is too high. But as any real estate agent can t...
