Your June home connection is here and I sure hope you are out enjoying some of that amazing sunshine we are having!!!
In today’s whirlwind real estate market, houses are selling at astonishing speed – from sea to shining sea. Four years ago, the average house spent 39 days on the market. Two years ago, homes were on the market for about 24 days. Today, that number has dropped to just 17 short days. If you’re looking to sell your house quickly and on the best possible terms, today’s market can’t be beat. DM me to discuss how to secure a speedy, top-dollar sale for your house.
Yeah, summer 🌞 is here and some hot days are coming! Finally!! But you know what is hotter?🔥 This real estate market!! 🔥
In 2015, after working with one of my favorite families 👨👩👧👦👨👩👦👦👨👩👧👧👩👩👦 for a few years. (they were in no hurry) I found them their first home. 🏠Fast forward to 2020 we listed their home in Lake Stevens and officially just sold on 7/31/2020. 💯 Now we wait as they hold up with family for a few months and watch the contruction of their new home. 🔑🔑 I am so blessed to have this amazing family in my life and had so much fun and laughter with them again. The hardest part of my job is when we close and I don’t see them anymore but, I always will stay in touch and I will see them again soon.

Don’t get all wet. Prepare for the rainy season while it’s dry.
As Benjamin Franklin once said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We know. The last thing you are thinking about at the summer barbecue is preparing for the stormy season. But it really is worth taking a look around your house during fair weather, because finding out you have a problem during inclement conditions is at best inconvenient and at worst very costly.
Check your rain gutters.
Clear them out and make sure they are in good working order to prevent damage to the roof or house.
Look at your roof.
If you see loose or damaged shingles, get them repaired. Look for tears and buckling on flashing. Check the chimney and look for damaged bricks, cap or cracked joints. Don’t forget the flashing there too.
Check indoors for signs of roof leaks.
Look for discoloration and peeling paint on ceilings and walls. Check in the attic for damp rafters.
Check the trees.
Trim back branches and cut sections that could fall in a rainstorm.
Check doors and windows.
Make sure there are properly insulated with weather stripping.
Look for water collecting at the base of the house.
Redirect water with trenches or drains.
Keep sandbags on hand.
if your area is prone to flooding, keep them filled and at the ready.
Check for erosion.
This is important if you live near a hillside. Shore them up if necessary.
Most importantly enjoy the fall and all the beauty it holds.
