Congratulations, Dad, on your 98th birthday!

Time for a personal shout out to my father, who turns 98 today, Dec. 5th! (This is a photo of him with his 5 daughters, taken last July.)

Reaching 98 (in sound mind and body!) deserves an entire weekend of celebration, so I will be foregoing my usual Open House schedule this Saturday and Sunday.

But I will be back to work next week and available to help you with all your real estate needs.

Is your Realtor working this holiday season?

I am!

Don't get me wrong, I encourage real estate agents (and everyone else) to take time out to celebrate with family and friends during the holiday season; I certainly plan to. But in between gatherings and events, I work full time during December and all year long. There are fantastic opportunities for both buyers and sellers this time of year because there is less competition!

If you are serious about buying or selling a home in the next few weeks, give me a call today! I promise that I won't let the weather or the holidays prevent me from helping you achieve your goals. 206-708-9800.

Current mortgage loan rates

Here is your weekly update on mortgage loan rate activity, compliments of Troy Chambers, loan officer for Arboretum Mortgage. This is a good reminder that rates are not going to stay low forever; they can change -- either way -- without notice.

Rates Bounce Back Up …
After a GREAT week in the market from a rate standpoint, Thursday and Friday have seen them jump back up by over a quarter point. It looks like this may just be a temporary adjustment, and we hope to see them dip back down towards the end of the month.

Please let me know, if you know of anyone looking to refinance, or is need of a pre-approval for a new home purchase. I look forward to working with you, so feel free to call my cell at anytime at 425-418-5103.
