union: When is good time to sell my home - 03/24/14 02:19 AM
With spring in the air , hoping to sell this year-----The 4-month moving average for Housing Starts is the highest since July 2008. Some economists feel the underlying trend for home building is upward and should remain that way for a couple of years. February, however, saw Existing Home Sales dip 0.4%, to a 4.60 million annual rate. But these closings came from contracts signed when harsh weather was slowing many markets. A lack of inventory has also been sending buyers to new homes. But median prices are up 9.1% annually  WOW, encouraging more sellers to list, and inventories were up … (1 comments)

union: More inventory needed good time to sell Mason county - 06/07/13 01:50 AM
The current market is the best of most worlds: low interest rates, a supply of homes to choose from that are aggressively priced, and lenders who are beginning to engage in 'make sense' loans." TheWashington state housing market allows for a buyers and sellers market. If you are looking to buy a home, now is the time to start the process and make it happen! If you are looking to sell your home, the current housing market situation is favorable as well. The housing inventory is low and there is a high buyer demand; thus getting your home on the market … (0 comments)

union: Prepare you home exterior decks during winter - 01/13/12 05:37 AM
Preparation Deck manufacturers suggest using a plastic or rubber-tipped shovel, never a metal shovel, to remove snow from a wooden deck. Choose a sturdy plastic snow shovel with rounded corners to effectively remove heavy snow and debris. Do not shovel across the decking but instead shovel in the direction of the wood grain, to prevent scratching or denting the decking.
Loose Ice Use the same plastic or rubber-tipped shovel to remove loose pieces of ice from the deck. Shovel gently and don't try to dislodge any pieces to avoid scratching or denting the wood pieces. If your deck wood is older … (0 comments)

union: Crazy erics Belfair ! Sign of the times closes. - 09/20/11 07:37 AM
Its a sad to to see this place close, we will miss this great place to hang out.
 
   The food that my family and I have received there has always been very tasty ( somewhat greasy at times, but hey – that’s part of the charm). The french fries are the best (I love the natural skins on and floppiness of them). The onion rings are hand dipped and we love them as well. And the milkshakes are made from hand-dipped ice cream the old-fashioned way.
Your flavor in town will be missed.
Thanks for the time you were here!

union: Spring cleaning befor you list your home - 05/23/11 08:19 AM

Putting your house on the market? Before the "For Sale" sign goes up, give your property the ultimate spring cleaning. When it comes to showcasing your home for sale, there's no such thing as a house that's too clean. Here's what I recomend as an expert  you do to clean before holding an open house. Prior to your first open house, review each room for grime and clutter, including the garage, basement or attic, as there are multiple steps to a polished look.  And beware the too corny maneuver: apples baking in the oven are definitely out; the aromas of essentials oils, … (1 comments)

union: Is your garden ready for spring? Tips to help! - 03/31/11 12:28 PM
What you do in your vegetable garden right now can have a huge influence on how well it does next year. This is the time to get your soil in shape. Start by doing a good clean-up. What crops in your garden have finished production? Get those broccoli stumps and bolted lettuce onto the compost pile. You can work around the tomatoes, squash and beans that are still bearing.
How often have you seen a vegetable garden in winter that was abandoned in October? You can picture it...dry bean vines still on the netting, rotten tomatoes on soggy vines hanging on … (3 comments)

union: Winter pests-steps to pest proof your investment - 01/24/11 07:02 AM
Winter months bring frosty temperatures, gusty winds and slippery sleet and snow, sending people indoors to seek warmth and shelter.  The chill in the air may also send a few uninvited pest guests into your home, too. Most homeowners don't think about winter pests until they see signs of an infestation, at which point treatment becomes more difficult. The best way to keep pests out of your home in the cooler months is to take preventative action before you have a problem.
 
Pests such as rodents and cockroaches seek food, water and shelter in the winter - all of which can … (0 comments)

union: Home Ownership is the best investment! - 01/23/11 11:18 AM
Home ownership is perhaps the surest way to accumulate net worth that there is, and it is often the largest and most important part of the total portfolio of many middle-income Americans.
The beauty of home ownership in this regard is that it tends to be a slow, almost inexorable wealth builder. In many ways, it operates more like a savings account than an investment. Each mortgage payment is like making a savings deposit, slowly building equity.
