 While reading a real estate magazine article about “the pros and cons of buying during the peak selling season,” I was fairly certain (as you probably would be) that, one way or another, the cons wouldn’t outweigh the pros. Lacey’s peak selling season is certainly prime time whenever there are h...

 Thoughtful Olympia investors find themselves in an increasingly uncertain environment. Although the official cost of living numbers indicate that inflation isn’t much of an issue, few Olympia residents who mind the family budget are convinced. Even if that were currently the case, even fewer thi...

 This is sort of fun: Mortgage rates, Lacey home loan applicants and soon-to-be-applicants should be delighted to hear, went down again last week. The national average quoted in the Washington Post notched down to 3.61% on a 30-year fixed loan, down from blah blah blah…You will probably not be su...

When we are keeping tabs on Olympia’s real estate scene, it’s only natural to go directly to the portion of the market we are most connected to. If we are a renter or investor, our eye is drawn to trends affecting that segment. Olympia home sellers (or potential home sellers) can be counted on to...

 The Huffington Post (“Huffpo” to its friends) has an entire section devoted to real estate doings. Although the vast majority of those dispatches are tidbits about awesomely expensive celebrity condos in Manhattan, sometimes the Huffpo editors’ attention wanders momentarily to other matters.

 Much of the financial press has been sounding a recurrent theme for a while: the complaint that the interest rate slump has left growth-oriented investors with few choices other than a Wall Street gamble. Lacey investors may find that some degree of risk is tolerable when you have a lifetime of ...

Either you’ve begun to think you’ve begun to outgrow your current Olympia home, or you’re just curious about what could be available in case you should decide ...

  Why it is that we’re drawn to “Top 10” lists in general is a matter we can leave to the psychologists. Suffice it to say that the lists are a staple on the super market tabloids and they’re all over the web. I admit they get more than their share of my own attention, even when my curiosity abou...

 There are Top 10 Lists aplenty that detail just why any Lacey homeowner should think twice before planting one of those For Sale by Owner signs in their front yard. One of them is that when you sell your home all by yourself, the sheer amount of time you’ll have to devote to mastering processes ...

 Selling your Lacey home is the kind of major undertaking that has so many facets just deciding where to start can delay liftoff. Since there is no actual “right” place to begin, like other mammoth projects, just digging in anywhere will do. The happy truth is that when you’re selling a home, onc...
