Flowers are in Bloom in Gig Harbor I have been out in my yard doing a lot of work the last couple of weeks. Last fall we had to cut back a lot of our Rhododendrons and weren’t even sure they were going to bloom this year. It was a very nice surprise to find that they have begun to bloom! That is one of the things that I love about Gig Harbor and Washington for that matter. We have the wonderful natural resource of Rhododendrons. They are one of the most beautiful flowers I have seen and I am very (2 comments)

Gig Harbor Stump Grinding Wilderness Stump Grinding Service Recently we had several large and small trees removed from our property and what I didn’t realize is what was going to be left behind. Companies that cut down trees don’t take out the stumps. I didn’t know this when we began this journey. And yes… It has been a journey. I thought this was something that was quick and painless.
The tree cutting down day was one of stress! If I had none how stressful this was to be I would have left for the week. Ours did take almost a (0 comments)

Somebody that I used to know… - 04/11/12 10:52 AM
Somebody that I used to know… I have been really thinking about a trend that seems to be taking hold in today’s communication. I’m not sure that most people have thought about what this time means and where it will go. I find it fascinating that we have already started to take this time for granted. This is like a communication revolution and we sit here not even realizing the power behind this age. The future holds so much and at the same time I feel like we are held back.
What sparked this in me was hearing all the (5 comments)

How much does it Cost You to Rent Your Home? - 04/06/12 02:54 PM
How much does it Cost You to Rent Your Home? That seems to be a question that is getting really hard to stomach the answer. Rents are going up at a staggering amount and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon. The reason for this is because of the fears about buying homes has flooded the rental market. That means there are fewer rentals out there, but more renters. It is another case of simple supply and demand.
Here is an example of how much it will cost you to own your home vs. rent your (4 comments)

Why does this matter you ask? This is a HUGE deal when it comes to how our Local Real Estate Marketis doing. The reason why we have seen more of a Buyer’s market in the past few years is because the inventory of homes has been overwhelming. It all goes back to supply and demand. When you have more homes on the market then there are Buyer’s prices go down. So, what happens when inventory (0 comments)
