Congratulations to my delightful client, Carole, who is now PENDING INSPECTION on this gorgeous Kingsgate 3 bed / 2.5 bath home.  This beautifully remodeled home was purchased by the sellers from HUD in the summer of 2012.  The sellers did a terrific job recreating the floorplan and opening up the living spaces that fit my clients needs perfectly.  Another added benefit to this home is the Community Pool that the new homeowner will have access to by living in the always popular Kingsgate Neighborhood in Kirkland!

It is a great compliment to have clients who come back time and time again to use our services as a Buyer's Agent.  Our repeat client Rich, a knowledgeable buyer had been searching for a VACANT LAND to purchase in Redmond or surrounding King County areas where he and his wife could build their next home.  Having known of this Union Hill property, I mentioned that perhaps it had been overlooked by him since the agent had this uninhabitable home listed as RESIDENTIAL listing -- it proved to be a great recommendation for him and we were able to negotiate a price that he was pleased with.  Congrats to Shannon and Rich and looking forward to show you will transform this lovely property to a gorgeous new construction dream home!

How Does a Lease Option Work?

The lease option strategy is a great way to leverage your real estate investments because it provides a great alternative for someone who wants to buy within the next 2 years, but whose current situation would not allow them to buy.  Here are some examples:  
  • Your out-of-state home has not yet sold but your job has moved you to a new city and you need the proceeds from your out-of-state home BEFORE you can buy.
  • You have credit challenges but are working diligently to improve your credit enough that you can qualify to buy a home
  • You will be receiving a significant bonus, settlement or inheritance tat will provide you with the funds necessary to buy
The lease option is more of a financing alternative…

fireplace-vent_268The draft problem with most fireplaces in tightly-built homes is that the fire lacks sufficient air for combustion unless a window is open. Sometimes this produces smoke indoors. Fireplaces in older homes didn't have this problem because leaks around windows, doors and framing provided plenty of air for combustion. A fireplace with an inadequate air supply can be dangerous. As a fire is starting or going out, it may back up dangerous carbon monoxide into your home. A fire with a strong draft can also interfere with the natural venting of a gas-fired water heater or furnace, causing a backdraft of combustion fumes into the home. Any gas-burning appliance vented by gravity up a chimney can have such a problem. One good solution is to install small fresh-air…

paint-mildew_225If your bathroom has problems with moisture, mildew and peeling paint, an exhaust fan is the best solution. You could have a fan installed in the ceiling or, if that's not practical, perhaps you can put a fan directly in an exterior wall. Reduce bathroom moisture problems by wiping down wet surfaces after a shower and removing wet towels. Keep the bathroom door open after a shower. Consider using a small fan to circulate air into the hall. You can also use a special paint that resists mildew and peeling. First, kill existing mildew with laundry bleach and water. Scrape away any loose paint, and sand the surfaces smooth. Spackle as needed. Then paint with Zinsser brand Perma-White Bathroom Wall and Ceiling Paint. This is a self- priming paint, so apply two…
