The market bounced back strong with the new year. Now, in combination w/ the snow, which must be pumping the brakes on sellers posting their listings, we’re getting some startling weekly stats again: 355 new listings replacing 344 sold, but nearly 3x as many going under contract.


As adults, trick or treating is verboten

As adults, trick or treating is verboten, so we come up with our ways around it. Come to my open house now through 3pm at 3717 219th Place SE, Bothell, WA 98021 and I’ll let you take two. If you buy the house, I’ll go full size Snickers.

I’d like to sell this house – because it’s awesome. Wanna go see it? Bonus: learn what a pene exclave is.

I come across homes for sale, which aren’t my listings, that I would love to sell – because I think they are special, architecturally or otherwise.

Here’s one I’ve clicked on a dozen times in the past month or so:

This is a 2014 build done in the modern/ mid-century modern style, I’m getting a nod to┬áMies van der Rohe. So while you get great style, open floor plan, window walls, etc, you also get radiant floors, modern plumbing/ electric,etc.

I love a build around a tree:

Finally – this home is on the pene exclave of Point Roberts, WA.,_Washington

A unintended quirk of the Convention of 1818’s agreement of the 49th Parallel as the US/ Canada Border leaves this tip of the Tsawwassen Peninsula in the US, though in accessible to the US mainland but through Canada. Fun, right?

So – if you don’t have to clock in to a work site regularly, maybe this is your chance to get an architecturally amazing place for a relatively reasonable price.

Let me know if you want to see!
