What a good feeling! I was fortunate to sell my own listing, and I just returned from getting it ready for the new buyers. It’s such an exciting time for them to start life anew in their wonderful new location. And the sellers are thrilled that the new buyers will enjoy the home as much as they have. And they know that the neighbors will welcome these great new buyers.
Homes here are starting to sell again, some with multiple offers, albeit with prices considerably less than they would have been a few years ago. If you have been waiting for the ideal time to buy in order to maximize your investment, that time is now before prices go up. We have many great values, and interest rates are still relatively low, although they seem to be trending upward.
Contact me for a list of available homes–with interior as well as exterior photos–in your price range in your preferred neighborhood. I will be happy to show you any of the homes/condos/vacant land you wish to see and if none of them will work for you, that’s fine. I understand that you have to start somewhere, and I don’t believe in hounding you until you buy. I want all my sales to be “win-win” for all parties. Granted you can now see photos of all the properties for sale, but the 1st hand experience of standing in the home and seeing if it meets your needs, and if it feels right for you, is quite different from glancing at photos.
Last Sunday we attended Mercer Island’s wonderful Farmer’s Market-the first one of the year (from 11:00 – 3:00), and found great fruits, vegetables, and flowers, as well as wonderful food and entertainment. And it’s so much fun to get to visit with our fellow Islanders that we don’t get to see that often. The Mercer Island Sunday Farmer’s Markets will be held every Sunday through October, and they’re well worth attending!
Remember also that our fantastic Mercer Island Summer Celebration, complete with fireworks and boat rides around the Island, is fast approaching. The dates are July 10th through July 12th. There are also great activities for the kids, and a parade that is always enjoyable to watch. For more information about Summer Celebration, contact me and I’ll email you all of the information.
