…and a few digestible bites from the NWMLS statistical report:

For single family homes in King County, the hike was similar (about 15.5 percent), rising from $550,000 to $635,000 at year end.
The median home price in Seattle proper was up 14.2% from December of 2016 to December of 2017 to close the year at $725,000, below its peak for the year of $748,500 last July.
Condo prices surged 28 percent in King County over the past twelve months, from $315,000 to $402,000. During the same year-over-year period.
Custom Express
I was excited to read this week that we have improved pricing and quantities for several products within Custom Xpress.
You’ll find improved pricing and quantities for the following select products:
small and large sized postcards, 11×17 brochures, and 1-sided and 2-sided flyers. 
Here are the key changes:
Pricing has been reduced by 10 to 25 percent. Love that!
Required minimum order quantity for the select products has reduced from 50 to 25 pieces.
Additional quantity tiers have been expanded out to include deeper discounts on bulk orders.

Martin Luther King Day | Offices Closed this Monday.

Computation of Time

When computing time for the purchase and sale agreement, please regard Monday, January 15th as a legal holiday. Martin Luther King Day is a legal holiday under Washington law.

That’s a wrap for this week! Have a productive weekend in work + play – here to help – the ultimate goal. 206.227.7133 c – if you don’t yet have me plugged into your contacts!
