Fall colors are changing along with our market…a shift to “healthy.” I like healthy,
SEPTEMBER MONTHLY TALKING POINTS
Seattle (based on Residential and Condominium report):
Buyers today may be concerned their new purchase could be less in the future than what they paid for it. Time is on their side.
How do people that bought a home in 2006 through 2008 feel today?
What do you get in exchange for taking price risk?
Time to decide
It is OK to buy if:
You like the location
You can afford the payments
You are going to live there six years or longer

Ps, keep in mind jobs are key to driving our real estate market. A recent article on LinkedIn shared that hiring in Seattle is UP 6.6% from August 2017. Notable + interesting!
…and being that we are speaking to working with Buyers, I’m going into my archives and re-posting Episode #5 of my Double Down podcast. If you are feeling you want to tool up in your Buyer Process, this 33 minutes podcast with brokers Kristin Munger and Greg Lewis may just inspire! And for those of you who will be joining me at Windermere Symposium next week and are attending my Buyer Savvy Strategies class you’ll get the live version with BOTH Kirstin, Greg and myself.
Wheels up for me this Sunday morning to Palm Springs. Symposium is sure to bring fun in chasing the sun, learning, networking! I’ll see many many of you there! Thank you again to Michael Nelson + David Updike for opening your backyard to our six offices Monday night!
