It’s Friday (eve)! I write tonight being I hope my blog post gets missed on Friday with all of us out within our communities, shoulder to shoulder, doing good in our respective hoods. Here is a handful of places we’ll be “showing up” tomorrow!
Atlantic Street Center + Mary’s Place + Julia’s Place + The Brig with YMCA + Sacajawea Elementary + the streets of Ballard (clean up!).
I know, I know! It’s a busy time of year – always is – and yet this is a very special day Windermere wide. It’s what we do, together. Thank you for taking a pause, carving out the time, rolling up your sleeves and making a difference. It doesn’t go unnoticed!
Should you buy a house today?
This week I had a chance to catch up with Matthew Gardner, our Chief Economist. One topic that came up are his favorite big 3 questions on whether someone should buy a home now? Here you go…
Are you comfortable with the job you currently have?
Are you comfortable with the debt you are taking on?
Do you you plan to be in a home at least 7 years?
ps, if your clients answer “yes” to all three – then yes – they have Mr. Gardner’s blessing too in moving forward to purchase!
FYI: Matthew & I were speaking specifically to first time homebuyers however my optics on this is that these questions translate just fine for any perspective homebuyer in this market. Use these questions > they are tools to help people move from uncertainty to certainty = one direction or another.
