Home Buyer Education Seminar in West Seattle, July 13, 2013 – UPDATE

On Saturday, July 13, 2013, Ira Sacharoff and I will instructing a Washington State Home Finance Commission sponsored home buyer education class at West Seattle’s High Point Library. (Here is my original announcement for this class.)

I’m pleased to announce we’ve added a guest speaker: Julie Beller from Cambridge Home Inspections.

Plus, Ira is bringing his infamous house roasted coffee and will be serving up Red Star Pizza for lunch to class attendees.

Of course you can still bring a sack lunch, if you prefer. We will be learning through the lunch hour as the WSHFC requires the class to be at least of 5 hours.

If you or anyone you know are considering buying a home and could use help with down payment, you should consider this class! Participants are eligible for the Home Advantage program and various WSHFC down payment second mortgages.

I’m not just a Blogger, I’m also a Licensed Mortgage Originator

This morning my husband and I enjoyed a tasty brunch at West 5 in West Seattle. I love their breakfast hash! When our waitress brought us our check she asked me if I was “that mortgage blogger”.  Yep… that’s me. She then went on to say how much she and her husband enjoyed my blog and that it was a great resource for when the refinanced. 

A bittersweet compliment. Of course I would have loved to help them with their refinance. I thanked her for her compliments.

My husband couldn’t resist calling her back when she walked by to ask why she didn’t contact me for her refi. She had asked for a referral from a trusted friend. I applaud this. That’s much better than calling a mortgage originator who has had to resort to mailing to strangers or clicking on some flashy ad on the internet (that’s probably just a lead generator).

With that said, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to take this opportunity to remind my readers that I’m not just a mortgage blogger, what pays my bills is successfully closing mortgage loans on homes located in Washington state. I’m happy to provide you with a detailed mortgage rate quote or help you with your home purchase or refinance.

My commercial break is over 🙂 stay tuned… tomorrow I’ll be posting this week’s scheduled economic indicators. 

Fall back on Sunday, November 4, 2012

I’ll be setting my clock back an hour before I go to bed tonight.  Day Light Saving Time ends November 4, 2012.  I’ve often wondered what it would be like to do away with DST and how it might impact the Seattle area.
