What are your refinancing options?

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions has a terrific website which provides tons of information and resources for anyone who is struggling to make mortgage payments and needs help assessing their options. If you are worried about your own situation, you would be wise to start researching your options sooner, rather than later. Refinancing Resources

Could you use $8000?

Who couldn't, right? But it's not a trick question. Right now, the Federal Government is offering first-time homebuyers (that definition includes anyone who hasn't owned a home in just the past three years) an $8,000 incentive to buy a home before the end of the year. If you don't already know about this program, give me a call and I will be happy to provide more details. Or follow this link: $8000 tax credit

Belvidere Open House today 1-4

Today from 1-4, I will be holding open a beautiful 4 bedroom/1.75 bath Craftsman home with panoramic view of the Cascades from the living room. This 1925 home has been wonderfully maintained and retains the original character. Two bedrooms, a full bath, a dining room, living room and kitchen make up the main floor. The lower level has been converted to a Master Bedroom or could be used as a rec room. The upper level has an additional bedroom and office space. A detached garage and extra off-street parking space are just off the well-manicured back yard. The house sits majestically above street level, but if you don't want to climb the stairs, just drive around back and enter from the paved alley with its level entrance.

Stop by and claim your coupon for a free ice cream cone from Husky Deli. My treat!

The address is 4417 SW 38th St. List price is $449,500. Listing agent is my Prudential colleague and all-around good guy, Scott May.
