I can’t tell you how honored I am to be a part of Seattle’s Rain City Guide. Here are a couple of recent posts that I really encourage you to check out…
Jillayne Schlicke just wrote a dead on post regarding our local situation with affiliated business arrangements between real estate, title and escrow and mortgage companies. This is a topic close to my heart as before I was in lending (8 years ago), I was in the title insurance industry for 14 years. I’ve seen drastic changes over this time since large real estate companies have entered into arrangements with title companies. Now the State is stepping in with new regulations.

ARDELL wrote a very timely post: Should You Buy Before You Sell? Her answer is NO! And during these times, I’m likely to agree. Bridge loans may be hard to come by and properties are taking longer to sell.
Don’t forget…I’m on vacation and will return on April 1.
