As a lifelong resident of Spokane WA, I never had to look elsewhere to experience magical Holiday experiences! Growing up, it was mostly playing in the snow, going to church, and my moms home made Christmas painted windows. Rasing our kids in Spokane, there was almost always a "White Christmas" filled with sledding, making snowmen, and living in Winter Wonderland!One of our TV stations here has a list of 101 things to do over the holidays, KXLY has this link : https://www.kxly.com/101-things-to-do-in-the-inland-northwest-this-holiday-season-2/Some of my favorite more recent Holiday " musts" are attending Christmas Tree Elegence , a fundraiser for the Spokane symphony: :https://spokanesymphonyassoc.org/home/christmas-tree-elegance/Another is the lights at Manito Park !https://thefriendso...

What If a Seller Asks You to Cut Your Commission? The first thing you have to remember is that when someone asks you to cut your commission, they are being motivated by something. Maybe the seller is concerned about closing fees. Maybe a friend of theirs bragged about what they paid. Maybe they are just trying to figure out the differences between you and another agent (because you may be competing against other agents to secure this listing client). With that in mind, it's not about having perfect answers right off the top of your head. It's about opening up the topic for discussion. Both you and your prospective client should be comfortable talking about your commission. When I was an agent, I would frequently talk with sellers about commissions. My response was, "That is a really gr...

How Will You Prepare Your Business for 2022? Right now it is the fall real estate season. Maybe, just maybe, in your area you might have the sensation that the market has softened. Maybe just a little bit. And ho-boy, if you have been working hard all year long, this may feel like a long overdue and welcome moment. But I've done my research. Have you? Because there is something you should know. Our market is still in dire need of new inventory and there's no relief coming in 2022. So, how will you prepare for the coming year? Every year, about this time, I'm already thinking ahead. I know that while it's only the second week of November that just around the corner is Thanksgiving and then BOOM the end of the year will be upon us. Are you wondering what the housing market will do this c...

Here is a 1-minute video from November 17, 2021, for Lynden residential real estate for the past year. Lynden has very different types of homes and values depending on the location, size, and age of the home. These are median stats for all Lynden residential. The purpose isn't to find the value of your home (you can get an estimate here: https://heatherstevenson.johnlscott.com/home-valuation) but to show the changes in the market for the past year.  If you would like to know more about your home/investment property valuation, contact me for a complete report. Heather Stevenson John L Scott Real Estatehttps://heatherstevenson.johnlscott.com/
