This week started off busy with a listing appointment! I met with my new clients to go over their goals to sell their current home and buy a new one! After our meeting, I connected them with one of my preferred lenders to get them preapproved and now we are taking the next steps to get them out of their current home into one that better fits their needs!
Next, I was invited to check out "The Seattle White House" - a stunning home that offers the balance of traditional beaux-art architecture with an impeccably renovated interior that exudes modern luxury and sophistication. This Seattle iconic private residence has been extensively updated for modern living with a meticulous remodel over 15 years. The completely renovated home honors the historic details while making the interiors generous, warm, and inviting. Located in a private enclave, surrounded by lush outdoor gardens and mature trees, the home has breathtaking views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, the Space Needle, and the Seattle skyline.

In addition, this week, I met with a major moving and storage company to discuss ways we can grow our businesses and help the relocating clients we have in common! It was a productive meeting & I am grateful for partnerships like this that bring value to my clients.
Then, I met with one of my buyers to show him a condo for the second time! We saw this condo several months ago; however, interest rates were too high and he wanted to wait. The condo was still available so we went to go see it and are now discussing the details, going over comps and hopefully soon, I will be writing an offer! Now is a great time to buy!
While the FED raises rates, the average for a 30-year, fixed loan was 6.09%, down from 6.13% last week. Mortgage costs have come down almost a full percentage point from their recent high, giving hope to some buyers who are wanting to invest in real estate.
