Federal Way, WA July 2010 monthly home sales statsThere were 47 home sales in Federal Way in July. That's nearly a 39% drop from June to July. I would attribute the drop to the federal tax credit for first time homebuyers ($8,000) and move up/move down buyers ($6,500)that expired June 30th, 2010. To be eligible for the credit the sale had to close by June 30th. From the 47 sales, here are the averages-The average square footage was 2176.The average $ per square foot was $132.89.The average days on market was 94. The shortest sale was 0 days; the longest was 309 days!The average original list price was $296,994.The average list price at contract was $281,262.The average sold price was $276,617.The average sale price to list price percentage was 99.00%.

Stop Foreclosure in Federal Way with a Short Sale You tried to do a loan modification with the bank that holds your mortgage and they denied you. (Don't feel singled out- Less than 3% of homeowners get loan mods.) Now what? Well, as a Federal Way resident you have several options. You can either pay the past due amount, you can do a short sale, or you let the bank foreclose. Since you are reading this blog, I assume that you don't want the bank to foreclose. What is a short sale? It is a way to stop foreclosure on your home. It is selling your home for less than you owe. In today's real estate environment, short sales are business as normal. Currently there are 569 active listings in Federal Way. Of them, 200 are short sales. More than one in three home sales in Federal Way are short sa...

Attention Federal Way Residents- If you are new to the area and/or are not aware of Federal Way's fireworks ban, then please read here before it's too late. Effective immediately, not only are fireworks illegal in Federal Way - they are now a civil infraction! From the Federal Way Mirror- Beginning this Fourth of July season, individuals discharging fireworks inside the Federal Way city limits will be committing a civil infraction, punishable by a ticket. Letting off fireworks has been against city code since Federal Way incorporated in 1990. The police department has emphasized fireworks enforcement since 1996, Cmdr. Chris Norman said. Historically, a violation of the fireworks code has been treated as a criminal misdemeanor. It will now be addressed as a civil infraction, making the o...

Love beauty?  The West Hylebos Wetlands Park in Federal Way, Washington is worth the time.  We decided to check it out a couple of weeks ago and so we headed out - just a few miles down the road.  The West Hylebos Wetlands is equal parts wildlife refuge, ecological and hydrological conservatory, nature trail, and just plain natural wonder.  The walk starts out with 2 very old cabins for you to look at.  One of these cabins was owned by one of Seattles Fathers, David Denny, who in 1998 built a 22 by 22 foot cabin from the trees cut on Queen Anne that was used as a Real Estate Office located just west from where Seattle Center sits now. This is the cabin that John Barker built on his 160 acre homestead claim, near South 312th Street and Seventh Avenue S here in Federal Way and he lived he...
