This is a picture of my granddaughterduring one of her many visits to “Nana’s House” in Kirkland, Washington. A short walk to...Downtown Kirkland on the Lake, with a pedestrian friendly and walkable area of quaint shops that come right up to the lake...and the ducks. Your know it is a "short walk to..." when a little 3 year old can walk it. :)
Home Prices often hinge more on what is nearby the house, than on the house itself. I'm often asked what is the biggest mistake a family can make when choosing a home to buy. Most often the answer is spending too much time on the WHAT and not enough time on the WHERE.
If you are a busy person, and seriously who isn’t?, you will understand that there are days when you can spare an hour or so, but not take a whole DAY off to go DO something.
Doesn’t that describe most everyone these days? Here in the Seattle Area we really can't plan too far ahead either. Lots of rain. We need to live close enough to something fun and interesting that is outdoors, as we all know bad weather can be here in a flash! That makes it even more important to be able to head out with the kids as soon as the weather breaks, and close enough to head back if our fair weather starts to turn sour on us.
So many times I am asked to help a family move to the right WHERE. They bought a great house...in the wrong place. They just weren't happy there.
These days, when selling your home for at least what you paid for it is easier said than done, more people are taking the time to find the right where, and Kirkland WA near Downtown has it all. Great Schools, easy access to freeways, close to work for many and a quaint Downtown Area of shops right by Lake Washington.
They say “A Picture Speaks 1,000 Words”. This picture screams
1) Buy a house in a place you LOVE to Come Home to.
2) Buy a house where “Getting Away From It All” can happen every single day, and anytime you have only a short time to spare.
3) Buy a house that is:
“A short walk to ??? Whatever may Feed Your Soul...and do your heart good.
