Olympic View Marina projects hits temporary snag

The long anticipated Olympic View Marina project hit yet another temporary setback recently when the proposed lender pulled the plug on their financing. This action, by no means, bears any negative reflection on the viability of the project or the solvency of the LLC partners. Many banks and lending institutions have been suffering from the recent economic downturn and mortgage crisis, and are greatly curtailing or eliminating funding, especially for commercial construction projects.

Rich - good information for buyers and sellers. Looks like a substantial absorption rate, although better than in some parts of the country.

BTW what do you think about that new bill whereby WA is giving first time home buyers their credit (well up to $8K) up front as a loan this year before they close? They can recover if from the state and federal tax burden it seems.

I handle a fair amount of business in Washington state especially Yakima, Walla Walla and Seattle.  These pictures have induced me to prepare my next visit out there to see my agents and clients.  See what you did!

Sal:   Thanks! I've been focusing more lately on getting my RE biz back up to speed.

Jeff:   I think it's a mistake. It will simply encourage people to over extend themselve beyond what they normally could afford. I think it's better to get the credit after the fact, and use it for improvements or put it into savings.

I agree with you on the Tax Credit thing. People are going to make better decisions with this "future money" than they do with any other free thing. Oh well.

By the way, do you know where Cree Farms is in Seabeck? I keep threatening to drive up and see how their Marans hens are. I really want to have some chickens one day.
