Seattle Area Snowfall The weather forecasted rain on the way to Western Washington with increased warming but there still were plenty of snowflakes over Mountlake Terrace the day after Christmas as you'll see in the video below. Other areas around Seattle did experience some rain and rain/snow mixtures to set the predicted meltdown in motion.

Why not follow Mountlake Terrace High School on Twitter?  This is going to be a great place for scores and more once they get it going!  Some of the kids on the newspaper there are trying it out.  You can find it here: http://twitter.com/MTHSports I think if enough people follow this one, they might really get into Twitter:)  The newspaper at this school is already phenomenal.  There are some amazing kids here!  Here is the website for the paper: http://thehawkeye.org/ And of course, if you are interested in Mountlake Terrace real estate, just send me an email:  realestate@cooperjacobs.com

I had a woman contact me the other day wondering what changes were taking place towards the Mountlake Terrace Downtown Revitalization.  Since the city hasn't updated their website in awhile, I contacted Shane Hope, the Community and Economic Development Director for the city of MLT.  He was very helpful and passed along the following list to show the efforts and progress towards the revitalization: --New downtown regulations (at http://www.ci.mountlake-terrace.wa.us/forBusinesses/pdf/BCD_Amend_ORD_08.04.08_Fnl.pdf ) and design standards (at http://www.ci.mountlake-terrace.wa.us/forBusinesses/pdf/DesignStandards_TC_August2008_Fnl.pdf ) implement the adopted Town Center Plan. --The Town Center Environmental Impact Statement was issued last year. --A Town Center Planned Action Ordinance to...

Amorn Thai:  Mountlake Terrace should thank their lucky stars that this place moved in: WOW!!!!  This is one of the best Thai places I have had the pleasure of eating at and I amke it a regular now as a result.  I am spreading the word:  Amorn Thai is the bomb!  Check it out the next time you are passing thru - it is only about a mile off I-5 from the Mountlake Terrace 236th St Exit, take a left on 56th and Amorn Thai is on the left past Roger's Grocery. Here's where it is: 22826 56th Ave W Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 (425) 712-9112 My recommendation:  Their Phad Thai is wonderful, their Thai tea is yummy.  Do not miss their spicy plum sauce.  It normally comes with the appetizer fried Tofu, but we order our spring rolls with it instead of the regular sauce.  Delish! NOW are you interes...

Mountlake Terrace WA is already one of the best Northern Seattle suburb commutes and its new transit center will be envied by all suburbs around, but Sound Transit has finally decided to put to the ballot a vote  that would bring LINK Light Rail from Northgate to Lynnwood - with a stop along the way in Mountlake Terrace!  This in combination with Mountlake Terrace's downtown revitalization?  Better consider Mountlake Terrace when considering relocation to the Seattle suburbs...

Seattle suburbs real estate:  Mountlake Terrace Short Sale Condo: Short sales take forever - anyone selling houses these days should have a pretty good idea of what they are getting into when they buy a short sale.  I was thrilled that my latest short sale closed in less than three weeks from offer to close!  LESS THAN THREE WEEKS!!!!  A quick short sale?  It CAN happen! There were a few tricks I used in getting this one to close quickly.  The condo is in the Seattle suburb of Mountlake Terrace - Pricing on it was extremely competitive and a good deal for the buyer.  Having comps ready for the bank when submitting the offer is vital.  Having your buyer's lender on standby is also a huge factor!  In this particular case we were able to close the sale just about a week before foreclosure ...

I have a new listing in Mountlake Terrace and I thought I would share the numbers.   Mountlake Terrace is a great little community.  It sits just over the Snohomish County line, north of Shoreline.  It has great access to Seattle and Everett. In fact there is a plan in place to expand the Mountlake Terrace park and ride to allow for more park and ride passengers.  Also, once this renovation is complete, there is a plan to connect light rail.  Mountlake Terrace offers a quiet community setting.  Many of the homes were built in the 50's and are two and three bedroom rambler style homes.  Mountlake Terrace offers a great value for people not looking to spend $400,000+ in Seattle.  Here are the latest stats on homes for sale in Mountlake Terrace.  If you would like more information, feel fr...

PMI is back and it is important to look at your mortgage every once in a while to make sure you are still required to pay PMI.  Even in a slower market, there can still be appreciation and with appreciation come equity.  With increased equity, there is no need for mortgage insurance so check out your loan docs and find out what your PMI situation is.  Consult with a qualified lender who can help guide you through dropping your PMI if it is possible.  I got my OMI dropped on my first house.  Here is my story: Dropping PMI Cooper Jacobs Real Estate Services:  Mountlake Terrace real estate!   Cooper Jacobs Real Estate Services:    Please call 206-251-5948 or email realestate@cooperjacobs.com if you are looking for a home or investment property (including short sales, preforeclosures, forec...

Seattle neighborhoods and Seattle suburbs have a ton to offer, and Mountlake Terrace is a perfect example!    I love Seattle suburbs real estate and the real estate in all of the Seattle Suburbs, but I think that you really have to look at dividing the Seattle Suburbs up into different categories, so let's look at those and then come back to Mountlake Terrace, WA.: North Seattle Suburbs REALLY North Seattle Suburbs Eastside Further expanding Eastside Southend Ferry Suburbs Let's just look at the North Seattle suburbs: North Seattle Suburbs include Lake Forest Park, Shoreline (including Richmond Beach), Kenmore, Brier, Mukilteo , Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace, Mill Creek, Lynnwood, Woodway (including...

One of my favorite things about Mountlake Terrace is that once a year the city puts on the annual garage sale.  This weekend, you can literally drive around to hundreds of garage sales!  It is quite the neighborhood thing to do, too - The city encourages clean up by allowing garage sales all weekend without a permit and people come out for this event!  After all the garage sales are over, Waste Management picks up UNLIMITED trash from their customers on trash day.  What a great way to clean up the city and allow some of those old things not needed anymore to be reused!

Mountlake Terrace is a North Seattle Suburb and it is easily accessed by Seattle workers, plus it has good schools on top of it!There are many houses in Mountlake Terrace for under $300,000!  Here is one example:A newly remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bath home is listed for $260,000 and it has a large lot. Mountlake Terrace is a good buy and I suspect it won't last as soon as the transit center is completed in 2009.  In addition, Mountlake Terrace has a full plan to be an urban center and redevelop the city into something that is going to shoot the values of real estate right up.The schools are in the excellent Edmonds School District and houses readily available around various schools.  Check out the Seattle suburb schools.Look at prices and search for homes in these Seattle suburbs.Courtney C...

Yes, you can still buy a house in a close by Seattle suburb for under $300,000 - Mountlake Terrace is a North Seattle Suburb and it is easily accessed by Seattle workers.  A fully updated 2 bedroom and 1 bath home is listed for $260,000 and it has a large lot.  Mountlake Terrace is a good buy and I suspect it won't last as soon as the transit center is completed in 2009.  In addition, Mountlake Terrace has a full plan to be an urban center and redevelop the city into something that is going to shoot the values of real estate right up.The schools are in the Edmonds School District and houses readily available around various schools.Check out the Seattle suburb schools.Look at prices and search for homes in these Seattle suburbs.Courtney Cooper ....For all your Seattle Washington Real Est...

Yep - The Park and Ride closed in December! There are amazing things happening with the Mountlake Terrace Park in Ride.. Construction is underway on a new four story five level parking facility in the lower level of the current Park N Ride.  The upper lot is being renovated to add additional parking as well.  The result will be a capacity for 890 cars which is about double of what the two lots together can take currently! (update in 2009:  You can see pictures of the new state of the art solar facility here:  Mountlake Terrace real estate ) The parking structure is set to be completed in the first quarter of 2009 and then shortly after that even bigger improvements will happen.  Construction will then take place to complete a state of the art transit island in the median of I-5 with a b...
