Save money in the long term - 07/22/08 03:34 PM
Simple, fix problems before they become nightmares. Every homeowner, buyer and/or seller at one time or another has had to face a home inspection. The wide range of defects that can be uncovered during a home inspection can be a major deal breaker. Buyers are looking for homes that do not require a full remodel after closing. They are looking for homes that have been well maintained and are worth the money being spent on it especially in the current economical times. [Continue Reading...] (5 comments)

The Spirit of Washington - Dinner Train is the most popular train ride in Washington and departs from Tacoma's Historic (0 comments)
Lot Sale in Sno. Co. Washington 2nd Quarter 2008 - 07/10/08 02:24 PM
Yesterday I received the 2nd Quarter 2008 lots sales figures and to my surprise there was a 46% increase. That is not saying much though since lot sales increased to a meager 69 for all of Snohomish County from 47 in the first quarter.
