West Seattle Open House Today

Saturday and Sunday, from 1-4, I will be holding open a terrific little home in the Puget Ridge neighborhood, very near South Seattle Community College. This little-known part of West Seattle has the feel of a rural area, but the advantage of being close to bus routes and freeways. The address of this 3 bedroom, 1 bath semi-fixer is 5632 18th Ave SW. There is still work to be done on this property -- and it is priced accordingly at $250,000 -- but it is essentially move-in ready, with a new roof, new flooring and fresh paint throughout the home. Lots of large picture windows flood the home with warm, natural light. 1150 sq. ft. of living space in the upper levels and another 650 sq. ft. of unfinished basement space. Plenty of off-street parking for an RV or boat AND two or more cars. There's lots to love here; come see for yourself.

First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit - YOU might qualify!

"First-time homebuyer." The term sounds pretty self-explanatory, doesn't it? But did you know that anyone who has not owned, or co-owned a home in the last three years qualifies as a first-time buyer? If that describes you, you could qualify for the $8,000 tax credit recently approved by Congress.

Call me today to discuss whether you can benefit from buying a home this year. 206-708-9800.

Current loan rates

Here's the scoop on current mortgage loan rates, courtesy of Troy Chambers, loan officer for Arboretum Mortgage:

"Rates Are Good …
Mortgage rates are very similar to where they were two weeks ago. They went down a bit last week, but we have seen them rise a touch this week based on some positive financial feedback.

Please let me know if you need anything as I am readily available. Feel free to contact me on my cell phone during off-business hours at 425-418-5103.

West Seattle Open House Today- Free Ice Cream!

Today, Sunday from 1-4, I will be holding open my new listing in the Puget Ridge neighborhood which is near South Seattle Community College. This 1 & 1/2 story home, built in 1943 also has a full, unfinished basement and sits on a double lot of over 10,000 sq. ft. This lesser-known area of West Seattle is unique in that it abuts a greenbelt, which makes it seem secluded, but is also close to both the college and freeways.
This home is a semi-fixer, meaning that it needs some work and TLC, but is immediately livable, so you can move right in and then renovate as you have the time and money available. The address is 5632 18th Av SW and the list price is $250,000. Priced to sell, this is a lot of house for the money. Come see for yourself.

EVERYONE WHO VISITS ME AT MY OPEN HOUSE WILL RECEIVE A "THANK YOU" GIFT consisting of a variety of valuable coupons and special offers related to home ownership. For example, $50 off carpet cleaning services by Preferred Carpet Care; a free color consultation (valued at $250) and 10% off interior and exterior painting services by Aurea Painters; $50 off a home inspection by Home Inspections of Puget Sound; and many more! The total value of all the coupons combined is over $1000! These are coupons and offers that I have negotiated with local vendors and are AVAILABLE ONLY TO MY CLIENTS. I will be offering these gift packs at all my Open Houses for the foreseeable future, but I reserve the right to discontinue without notice, so don't delay! And this week, they also include a coupon for a free ice cream cone from Husky Deli!
