 Yes, it is Historic Times for Homebuyers! Interest rates are at 4.75%! My first Mortgage was a deal at the time 11.5% and I was happy to get it! What this low rate equates to is a 25% increase in purchase power for our buyers! The $8,000 First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit has to be used by Dec 1, 2009. That means that since deals have to be closed on that date, we should be writing offers now - especially for those deals that are taking forever (short sales). In our area, First Time Homebuyer inventory is shrinking to the 4 month level - it's beginning to become a buyers market! Potential buyers can buy with as little as 3.5% down and gift money is allowed.  Isn't FHA Funding is Fabulous!  If you are thinking of buying, it's time to get off the fence!   Teresa Nelson John L.

The Washington Legislature's Joint Task Force Report on Basic Education Funding has been completed and it is endorsed by the Washington State PTA.   This isn't a Woodinville or Northshore report - it impacts every school district in Washington, but I am posting it here to help keep the active and caring parents in the Northshore School District up to date.  We escaped a school closure last year, but we don't know what will happen this year that will impact next year.  Keep up to date and make sure your voice is heard!   Definition of Basic Education Includes the implementation of Core 24.Which is an increase in the number of courses required to graduate from the current 19 to 24.  These 24 courses are deemed required to enable all students to graduate from high school ready for post-sec...

This is a Destiny Reading for one of my Twitter Friends.  I come from some gypsy lineage (tiny bit of Mongolian blood from my mother's side) with a knack for Tarot Reading, etc...  I didn't pay a lot of attention to it until my children were losing focus on the meaning of life in their pre-teen and teen years :).  I often had a house full of young girls who only worried about which boy liked them this week, so I started doing Destiny Readings.  It created a major transformation among the young women, my daughters and their friends, to think they had a personal real Destiny to fulfill.  Their self image was no longer about who liked them...how they acted...what they wore...what they looked like... It's a combination of Chinese Astrology, Tarot, Birthday Analysis and Destiny Era charts......
