Saw this recently on my work travels...an underlit bathtub. Brilliance or madness, I'm not sure which.
Yes. Yes, as a matter of fact I did check out a Seattle home today that's just 10' wide! Really well executed, surprisingly livable. Obviously a creative, ambitious developer. Cancel your gym membership - I counted 50 steps in this home ;-)
Saw this on my work travels not that long ago..You know you're house hunting in the good ol' USA when: a) an appliance that cleans yer underside has to be labelled, and b) the label is misspelled. People mean well, they really do.
Free shredding/electronics recycling event at my office, 4/15, 11am-2pm! Please take advantage of this event - great way to get rid of sensitive documents, especially around tax season. I expect to be there, hope to see you!
This gen-x'r regularly works with millennials and I can say that much of this article rings true. It's not good news, admittedly (although this ST reporter has had 'interesting' viewpoints in past articles that I'd dispute). This town attracts bright young talent and they want to plant roots. Current market conditions make that challenging. But not hopeless, by any means. My advice to millennial buyers: make the best of your resources and get your foot in the home ownership door by making compromises - go smaller, go farther out, get a condo, get a fixer (and borrow a bit of money from family for the remodel) - whatever you can. No one's first home was their dream home but remember, your best earning years are ahead of you. Get started how you can, build wealth over time and be patient.
seattletimes.com Greater Seattle once again had the biggest home-price increase in the nation, with home values soaring at nearly twice the national rate.
"Seattle’s crane count reached 62 this year...18 more than the number in second-placed Los Angeles and almost three times as many as New York City."
Will this development ease the intense level of competition in the residential market?
ft.com New residential towers are springing up across the city amid high demand and a severe shortage of homes
Rents continue to climb in Seattle, a mark of a healthy local economy, limited housing inventory and a desirable climate. This is good news for landlords; not so good news for tenants. Construction of new residential units is up and coming available in a steady stream. Will it be enough to satisfy the demand?
As the cost of renting rises, many tenants will consider the benefits of owning. I regularly work with buyers who are moving out of their rentals and into their own home; but there are a series of pros/cons to be considered before taking this step. Let me know if I can help!
seattletimes.com Rents in the Seattle area are rising about four times faster than the national average and have topped $2,000 a month

Seems like there's an app for just about anything, necessary or not. But this seems like a truly useful one! At least for those of us in Seattle who're looking for an easy way to communicate needed repairs and issues to the City. I've loaded it and plan to use it soon.
seattle.gov “Find It, Fix It” is a smartphone app offering mobile users one more way to report selected issues to the City of Seattle.
