Home buyers get a class to learn what to expect in a purchase, but doesn’t a seller need to know the process from their side? Of course! Most people don’t realize that home selling is often more of a nail biting experience than buying until they’re in the middle of it.

team reba: Real estate brokers get their own online creepers... - 11/18/14 03:37 AM
Ok, if people don’t think that real estate is a bizarre industry based on the fact that we post our photos all over our marketing materials – I assume so people can think we look trustworthy – I have more proof for you. I just received a random call from an out of area phone number (not uncommon with cell phones today) and the guy who was calling said, “he found my profile on Realtor.com and thought I was very attractive and thought it worth reaching out to make contact with me. I’m not interested at all in buying or selling … (5 comments)

team reba: Spotlight on a Seattle area small business owner - 10/06/14 05:55 AM
This weekend I was provided a wonderful experience going out sailing with some past clients of Team Reba. Nine years ago, when I helped Andy Huntley and his wife Kris Hardy purchase a home in the Maple Leaf neighborhood, they told me about their long time dream of owning a sailboat charter business. Well, as of 2014, they’ve made that dream a reality, opening up Upbeat Sailing, with their boat slip out in Shilshole Marina near Ballard.
I took my husband and another couple, our friends Sue McCabe and Gerald Grinter (also a past client), on the boat this past Sunday … (2 comments)

team reba: 9 Tips on interviewing listing agents for your upcoming 2014 home sale - 12/11/13 05:53 AM
It’s that time of year in which people are scurrying about handling holiday parties and buying gifts, but it’s also a time when people are considering changes in their lives. Including, a possible move, which could lead to the need to sell a home. Lots of clients we speak to each year start this thinking mode process in about Sept or October but they want to get through the holidays before making a change… because as we all know, other than public speaking, for most Americans – we hate to move.
When you’re ready to take that plunge and you start … (0 comments)

Plans to add Sound Transit lines on I-90 are progressing so we'll finally have an East/West link by 2023. Looks like construction will begin in 2015. I'm wondering if this will prompt more people to buy a Good To Go! pass for 520 now....  http://developer.soundtransit.org/Projects-and-Plans/East-Link-Extension

team reba: Vacancy rates for rentals dip to sub 4% in Seattle area - 05/01/13 08:02 AM
The latest numbers on vacancy rates for the Puget Sound region are in via Dupre + Scott and in many places, particularly in Seattle, we're at sub-4%. This is a great time to be a landlord and if you are able to do it, boost up your profitability by increasing rents when you have a lease renewal or turnover in a unit.

team reba: Want to buy a home in rural area? USDA loans still avail til Sept 2013 - 05/01/13 02:37 AM
Did you know:

According to the Housing Assistance Council, the fiscal year 2013 Continuing Resolution passed by the Congress and signed by the President includes provisions maintaining the eligibility of areas currently eligible for USDA Rural Development home mortgage programs through September 30th, the end of the2013 fiscal year.

This is good news for many areas of rural Snohomish, King and Pierce County as many smaller cities DO qualify for USDA housing loans. Had one done just last autumn in downtown Snohomish, so it doesn't necessarily need to be "out in the sticks" so to speak.
The other … (0 comments)

team reba: When buying a home, don't purchase big ticket items at the same time. - 01/24/13 12:27 AM
A reminder to all you prospective home buyers out there, if you are in the process of buying a house it WILL affect your purchasing power if you buy a car, get a new credit card, or do anything to alter your debt-to-income ratios. If possible, hold off on other expenditures till AFTER your purchase so you don't get a surprise on your house financing during the transaction. Even if you must get a new car (and paid cash), be sure to be in touch with your lender to confirm its impact on your buying ability because lenders also have requirements … (4 comments)

team reba: 2012 ends with on-going low inventory, multiple offers to continue... - 01/18/13 03:47 AM
We’ve got several new listings for Team Reba coming on market soon and will be busy in places like Shorewood (southwest Seattle/Burien), Bellevue, Kent, Renton and Lynnwood.
We’ve had a shortage of sellers compared to buyers since April 2011, so it’s nice to see that we will be helping out the buyers who are desperately trying to find decent inventory while doing a great job for our seller clients in positioning them for these market conditions. We’ll continue to see multiple offers on well priced and good condition homes. Multiple offers have been pretty common since January 2011, if not starting at least … (0 comments)

Preliminary data is out for unemployment rates across the USA and it’s more good news for WA. As of Dec 2012 the number for WA is down to 7.6% BUT what is even cooler is that the number specifically for the Seattle/Bellevue/Everett area is down to 6.5%! Want to read the entire report? You can go to this link for the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
