The good, the bad and the ugly of the pest world
Hi all: I wanted to add to the excellent piece just posted by my good friend Gene Mundt. Gene indicated that we're in the middle of a cycle and those who wait to buy or refinance may pay a higher price down the road. This morning in our sales meeting one of our managers shared with us some slides...
My friend Gene has hit the nail on the head. We've been spoiled with low interest rates and housing prices for a while now. Although interest rates and prices aren't expected to climb dramatically in the near future, those who wait will pay a higher price; perhaps as soon as 2015. Enjoy the read!...
Good afternoon! I'm writing from a dreary and rainy Seattle! It's always heartening when a small and locally owned business appears to be getting it.

Hi all: I had the good fortune of attending  Economic Development Conference for Washington State today. It was interesting. The conference started with a speech by the King County Executive Dow Constantine  and then there was a panel discussion with three renowned economists and their prediction...
Hi all: Happy New Year! I wanted to touch on renting vs. owning as we start 2013. Lately I've seen several renters take the plunge and buy a place of their own. It's tempting with home prices still reasonably low and interest rates at all-time lows. For example, a friend of mine sold his house ab...
These are some great thoughts here. It is true. The Gen Y'ers are the next buyers. The key is to get them to realize the benefits of homeownership as so many are renting now. Enjoy the read!The Gen Yers or the Millennials, are the new catalyst in the housing market.  The dawning of this new era r...
Hi all: I hope you're well! Every once in a while I am amazed by great service. Almost 6 weeks ago I was minding my own business at a stop light when a car failed to make a right turn and plowed into the driver's side door of my car. The damage was $6000 and, after waiting a week for the insuranc...
