Olympia Area Favorites - Burfoot Park - 05/26/09 06:51 PM
Burfoot Park is a county park in Olympia that is a wonderful place for family fun, with a big grassy area to picnic or play in the grass, playground equipment for the kids, and then you can go exploring down the wooded trails that lead to the saltwater beach.
We were lucky enough to go check it out recently while there was an extremely low tide and so there was LOTS of beach to walk and amazing sea creatures to encounter!
Very educational encounters with crabs, seaweed, pretty shells, & the gorgeous backdrop of gentle waves rolling in and sailboats (1 comments)

Hey Mr & Mrs Seller - Something Doesn't Add Up! - 05/14/09 03:45 PM
So here's the deal, Mr. and Mrs. Seller: buyers are noticing some things that just don't add up about your house. And first, a word about buyers today - they are savvy, willing to educate themselves about the market, and very, very cautious. They are cautious because of the general volatility of our real estate market and economy and worried that they will accidentally overpay for a home. They also are cautious because they want to stay well within their means and not become another sad statistic of buyers who bought WAY more house than they can really afford. When these (3 comments)
Olympia area listing inventory - smaller than you think! - 05/05/09 01:18 PM
I like taking a periodic look at the MLS numbers for the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater area to check out the accuracy of my gut impressions of what is happening in our real estate market. Lately I have been working with several buyers who are finding not such a large supply of available homes as the media might make you think is out there. If I search in the 3 city area for active residential listings, and exclude manufactured homes, fixers, & presales (these buyers are all wanting something they can move into in the next 30-60 days) the total number of all prices (1 comments)
I have pretty much always had one or more cats in my household & love their entertaining antics as well as their ability to snuggle in a lap and do that totally relaxing purr of contentment. But some things about cats are just a mystery: 1. How can such tiny creatures sound like galloping ponies when they chase each other up and down our stairs or across the floor upstairs? 2. How do they know how to make that chirping noise at birds outside the window? 3. How do they decide to turn their noses up at the very (4 comments)
