Outdoor Holiday Lighting Installation & Safety in Issaquah & Snoqualmie When stringing lights on the outside of your Issaquah or Snoqualmie home (and sometimes, even inside), safety is paramount! Please... don’t ruin your holidays, or worse,  risk severe injury by installing holiday lights on your home if you’re not fully prepared, and you have placed safety first! This week, I witnessed a neighbor installing Christmas lights on their Snoqualmie Ridge home - in the wind-driven rain - and with the lights on! Several times, I watched him lean perilously from one eave to another on his second floor with the tangled lit lights dangling to the ground. I was fully expecting to have to call 911 at any moment. With this in mind, beyond placing Christmas lights in your smaller trees and shrubs, ...

Issaquah Home Staging - Get Your Home Sold Faster! Even in the improving real estate market in Issaquah, it is a fact that home staging will typically help any house sell faster, and at a higher price, no matter the market. You may ask yourself why is it so important to stage your home, if the market is improving, and thus, be tempted to overlook presenting your home in the best possible condition. This would be a mistake for a couple of reasons: Many home buyers have a hard time seeing past personal decorations and accessories.  For instance, when a buyer walks into a house with dozens of photos lining the hallways, they may find it difficult to envision themselves living there. They may even feel physically or emotionally uncomfortable. As a home seller, you want to make certain that...

Issaquah Hilton Garden Inn - Perfect Hotel for Finding Homes in IssaquahDuring my recent move, I stayed at the Issaquah Hilton Garden Inn hotel several times while viewing Issaquah homes. I received such consistent and exceptional service, that I thought I’d put my thoughts in writing. I stayed at this hotel on six separate occasions, up to five nights each. Compared to other Hilton Garden Inns, this location is above average, primarily due to the level of service we received.The front desk clerks, and breakfast staff were very friendly, accommodating, and unusually conversational - particularly the breakfast staff. The hotel's housekeeping was non-intrusive, thorough and efficient. With specific regard to the breakfast - I do not agree with some other reviews about the breakfast being ...

Five Tips for First Time Home Buyers in Issaquah When looking at Issaquah homes, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when navigating through the home buying process, especially if you’ve never bought a home before. Here are five tips for first-time home buyers in Issaquah who wish to purchase their first home or condo: Do your research: It's important to compare similar properties before placing any offers. Many Issaquah homes - particularly houses built in the last 5 years - have plenty of comparable properties to glean information from. Any experienced buyer's agent will do this as a part of the home buying and negotiation process.  The last thing you want to do is put an offer on a house, pay for appraisal and inspection fees, and then find out the property was overpriced, or worse... you ...

I'll get right to the point - Social Media can literally SUCK the life out of you, and bleed you dry! Yes, yes... I know, everywhere you look, you're told you will be (or already are) a miserable failure unless you're some sort of online social maven - "engaging" with people online with each stroke of the keyboard. Well guess what - this is just plain wrong! And moreover, those who are pumping real estate agents (new or not) full of their fresh perspectives & spin, really need to own up to the Social Media Overload in real estate training today. It's all just too much; it really is sending many real estate agents into an abyss - ignoring the tangible foundations of their businesses. Indeed, there ARE numerous examples of real estate agents who have done quite well with Social Media, and...

Seattle Freeze? Move to Issaquah or Snoqualmie - Not so Frozen Seattle Freeze Definition According to the most popular definition on Urban Dictionary, the Seattle Freeze is "A phrase that describes a local public consensus that states the city of Seattle and/ or its outlying suburbs are generally not friendly, asexual, introverted, socially aloof, clickish or strictly divided through its social classes, thus making the city/ area difficult to make social connections on all levels." Prior to moving to Issaquah from Texas, I did a tremendous amount of research on the Seattle region. Though I've visited regularly over the past 16 years, I wanted to know more about what the locals thought of each area. In my research, I came across the "Seattle Freeze" phenomenon. Even as a frequent visitor...

If your thinking of visiting Sammamish State Park for a picnic, swim or launching your boat your gonna pay. As of July, 1st 2011 visitors to any Washington State Park will have to pay $10 a day or you can buy an annual vehicle pass for $30. The fine for not displaying the pass is $99 According to a recent article in the Seattle Times "The pass will be required for access to state parks and other lands managed by the state. That includes boat launches, heritage sites, wildlife areas and trailheads managed by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and Department of Natural Resources." The fee is a result of the Washington State's budget woes. The goal is to make the State Parks self-funding. Many think that this plan will fail. If your considering visiting one of the many trails and pa...

How To Sell My Home In Issaquah Highlands, WA.      Here are some tips for selling your Issaquah Highlands Home:    Price your Issaquah Highlands home correctly. Often times sellers will feel that their home is above market value for various reasons. If you over price your home you run the risk of losing out on quality buyers.   Take “High Quality” photos.  Just because I have a new digital camera it doesn’t mean I can take professional pictures (I am a Broker not a Photographer). The first thing buyers see when looking for homes are “pictures” of your home. These pictures need to catch the eye of potential buyers. This is why I hire a professional to take stunning photos.   Make sure that your home is “show ready”. This means that you should remove all personal, political and religiou...
