Seattle Floating Homes & Where To Find Them - 01/28/12 11:23 AM
Where Are The Seattle Floating Homes Located? It seems pretty obvious to most of us where they are, but we are local and people outside of Seattle really don't know. Many out of state visitors come here only with the Sleepless In Seattle frame of reference for where Seattle houseboats actually are in Seattle. Any Seattle local who has seen this 1993 Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan movie (which I affectionately call the STALKER movie) knows that when Tom sets out in his little row boat from his Lake Union houseboat, he won't end up in the Puget Sound at Alki (3 comments)

A Downsizing Boomer May Be In For a Surprise - 01/12/12 01:51 PM
I have run into this a few times in the last year or so. With prices softened in city a bit - obviously depending on the neighborhoods you look at - there is an opportunity to downsize at an equal or somewhat lower cost depending again on another factor - what you are looking for. Via Valerie Zinger (House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada): This is a story that is being repeated all over the country. Boomers want to downsize. This is hardly a surprise. The surprise or even shock is that it is going to cost them money to live in less space. (0 comments)

The Numbers Can Be Deceiving: Seattle Real Estate Up Over 20% From A Year Ago According to Latest NWMLS Press Release. - 01/04/12 04:11 PM
Seattle Real Estate Up Over 20% From A Year Ago According to Latest NWMLS Press Release. Like divorce stats, etc. (ask me about my theory on Elvis Vegas weddings sometime if you want a different discussion altogether), I think all numbers are skewed, but the latest NWMLS report from the close of the 2011 December Seattle real estate market would suggest otherwise. Without me going into the fact that I disagree with my friend OB (who happens to be the President of Windermere) on whether or not we have already turned a corner as he says we have in this latest (2 comments)
