spokane realtor: June 2018 Spokane WA Real Estate Market Update ! - 06/13/18 06:44 PM
June 2018 Spokane WA Real Estate Market Update !
The Spokane Wa Real Estate Market is ON FIRE. Although there is a marked lack of inventory ( homes for sale ) there are more active buyers than ever. This creates competition in most price ranges ( the lower the price range, the more competition).
It is more important than ever to have proactive, experienced representation in selling and buying homes. With the fast paced market, mistakes can be made. Hasty decisions can come back around to burn you. 
In some instances sellers are becoming almost a bit greedy, and buyers are becoming somewhat desperate, making … (4 comments)

spokane realtor: Why are people are Relocating to Spokane WA ? - 03/25/18 04:33 PM
Why are people are Relocating to Spokane WA?
As a lifelong resident of Spokane, WA. I would like to speak to the fact that Spokane WA is the number ONE city in the USA according to Realtor.com where the inbound/outbound ratio is the highest. What does this mean ? At the time of their study which was published (3/1/18)  by Sabrina Speianu, Economic Analyst with realtor.com states:
"In Q4 of 2017, Spokane had a very high ratio (2.8), which means it received 2.8 times more views from residents of other metros looking at Spokane properties compared to Spokane residents looking at properties in … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Defining Questions and Guidlelines When Looking for Home - 04/06/17 11:13 AM
Defining Questions When Looking for Home are as important to the Buyer as they are their Realtor.
If you take just a little time to prepare well and answer some important questions, your process will be much smoother and more satisfying when looking for a home.  Seeing " more " homes is not necessarily as good as seeing less of the right homes. In fact, in my experience it is critical to carefully weigh many defining questions prior to looking at someones private home.
I have seen many ( many ) times when buyer clients seem to think they should view several homes prior … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane Real Estate Market Stats Dec. 2016 ! - 12/13/16 05:09 PM
WOW. All  I can say is, buyers are buying, even though they have 25% less choices ( listed homes for sale ) than last year at this time. This truly speaks to the increase in numbers of serious buyers, and the fact that sellers have an advantage because there are not enough homes for sale in the Spokane area! 
My year has been steady, and I am so thankful to have such amazing clients and such a great pool of lenders, title companies and closers to help make selling a home in Spokane WA a good experience. Although the number of people … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane Real Esate Market Forecast 2017 ! - 11/23/16 03:15 PM
Spokane Real Estate Market Forecast 2017 !
Well, if the truth be told, I cannot predict what 2017 will bring for the Spokane Real Estate Market or anything else for that matter - But, after 13 years of experience, I have a gut feeling.
2016 brought a record number of " sales/transactions " over al l- however, we had a noticeable lack of sellers/listings when compared to the year before. This is curious. Here is something you may not know: 
In general, historically -about 50% of homes listed for sale in Spokane WA.  NEVER SELL. WHAT???  So why isn't there enough homes for sale in Spokane ?  You see, … (2 comments)

" When Winter Comes Again " an original song by Yours truly...
I wanted to share with you a song I wrote a few years back after a very difficult season of loss, illness and hardship in my life.
I was inspired to tell a bit of my story by the crisp morning air early this morning when I opened the door to let the dogs out and get the newspaper.  It hit me like a brisk slap in the face... here she comes again... Winter. 
It's ironic , as a lifelong resident of Spokane WA. for some reason I have come full circle … (7 comments)

Why FALL is an optimal time to sell your Spokane Home!
Why IS Fall an optimal time to sell your home in Spokane WA ?
If you look at the statistics of Spokane Home Sales, you will see they peak in the late Spring, and then again in the Fall.  While the Spring homes sales in Spokane WA might be more in numbers, there are a significant number of transactions that occur between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. People love to get " settled before the Holidays " . Each Season in Spokane brings it's own reason to buy and sell. 
There is something truly … (2 comments)

spokane realtor: Local Vocal - Spokane WA - Lolo Boutique - 03/17/16 11:12 AM
I recently visited Lolo Boutique in Spokane WA located at 319 W. 2nd ave. It had honestly been a couple of years since I was there, and I had to ask myself why! What a delightful place, with such great finds. The gals were engaging and seemed so very happy to be there. This is important to me as a former retail worker, I tend to get turned off at crabby sales people. 
I really loved the selections in clothing , jewelry- and accessories. Oh, and the new section for home accents is fantastic. Their website is really great, excellent photo's to … (0 comments)

spokane realtor: Are you ready to buy a HOME ? - 10/18/15 12:29 PM
Are you ready to buy a HOME ?
I have been selling real estate now over 11 years. I absolutely LOVE what I do! 
One thing I seem to run into several times a year, are people who want to go out and look at homes before they are truly ready. 
Part of my job as a real estate professional is to help people assess their goals, motivations and abilities to buy.
Here is what I recommend as an answer to the question, AM I READY TO BUY A HOUSE?
Or, perhaps we can determine - Are you ducks in a row?
1) First, and foremost, I recommend … (0 comments)

spokane realtor: Selling your Spokane WA home in 2015 - 01/17/15 10:30 AM
Are you giving some thought to selling your Spokane WA home in 2015?
This could be an excellent year for Real Estate in Spokane. At present however ( 1/17/15 ) our listing inventory is down 11% from this time last year.
