I've just listed a nice little home in Seattle on NE 145th (PRICE REDUCED to $199,950)  This one is cute as can be with really nice hardwoods and a kitchen remodel that really looks good.  One of my favorite features is the  fully fenced back yard, it's a nice sized back yard, especially for Seattle.  There's also a good sized concrete patio out back to barbecue or set up outdoor furniture for the Summer.  It has a 1 car garage with a bunch of shelving in it for storage with an access door leading out to the back yard as well.  The two bedrooms both have hardwood flooring with one looking out to the front of the home and the 2nd bedroom looking out over the back yard.  Seller says the furnace was recently replaced as well.  This home should…

As part of the so called "fiscal cliff" legislation just passed by congress, most distressed home sellers who choose to short sale their homes will be protected in the upcoming year from owing income tax upon debt which has been forgiven by their lien holders.  While at the time I write this post we are still awaiting the President's signature on the legislation, it appears to be a near certainty it will be signed into law.

This allows some breathing room for home sellers currently involved in a short sale and those who are currently considering one.  Unfortunately; a one year extension isn't a lot of time when dealing with short sales.  With time periods for successful short sales ranging anywhere from 60 days to as long as one year, if you are…

Move in ready 3 bedroom home just down the road from JBLM

Friday, August 3rd, 2012 at 4:50pm. 1478 Views, 0 Comments.

Real estate transactions can fall apart for many different reasons.  Over the years, I've seen buyers fail to close on good and not so good deals for many different reasons.  Mostly the cause of the failure is financing.  I've seen deals fall apart because a VA buyer was "pre approved" by an online "VA Financing Specialist" (No such thing by the way in my experience) only to learn at closing that they don't actually qualify , I've had buyers purchase expensive cars prior to closing and almost kill their deals, I've had buyers orders pulled at the last minute and I've had buyers get cold feet, panic and run to a rental.  But I've never had a buyer do what this buyer did prior to closing. 

I won't get into the details on my blog of why this home…
