There are some great new waterfront homes on the Chelan MLS today! I've already notified my clients and to put these homes on their short list. This home is a community waterfront in one of my favorite neighborhoods, Sunnybank on the south shore of Lake Chelan.

Hand scraped floors, travertine, slab stone counters and beautiful trim work are just some of the featured amenities of this spacious home. Don't forget the private slip at the community marina! This home is worth seeing and is priced at $949,000! (0 comments)

Pending Sales at Lake Chelan Still don't foretell Market Upswing - 06/12/09 10:18 PM
Pending sales in the Lake Chelan MLS still don't show signs of a market upswing. I posted in my main blog: While I often get you information on sold properties in the Lake Chelan Residential Sales Report and in posts on details of Lake Chelan sold homes, I haven't written about "pending real estate sales." The NAR nationally and the NWMLS in Washington have of late been claiming that pending home sales portend a turnaround in the real estate market. So, I thought I should take a look at the local pending sales. There are 29 pending sales in the MLS (0 comments)
Development and the Chelan County Budget - 06/12/09 10:12 PM
The local politicians around these parts like to speak about how they have "Development pay for Development." But, an article in the local paper about Chelan County's budget woes makes it look like development pays for far more than development. Here's a link to the post on my Chelan Real Estate Blog: The local political lexicon that justifies extortion of development for impact fees, SEPA fees and other fees that create high housing costs is "Development should pay for development." What a sound byte for a politician! The problem is, development already does pay for development, and much more. - Chelan (0 comments)

Try Microsoft's new Search Experience, Bing - 06/02/09 05:23 PM
I like Bing because I have two sites in the top 10 for "chelan real estate." I also rank right up there for "chelan homes for sale." Unfortunately, that's better than I do on google, so I think I will recommend Bing! Beyond that it is pretty slick! It lists search results in the same way we're all used to, but it when you mouse over the right side of a result, it brings up more information about the site. It has maps and image searches too. COOL!It also lets you do RSS feeds of search results. I'm sure there will be some (5 comments)
