In 2006, this top floor view condo in Juanita Bay was sold for $575,000. At it’s lowest point, the appraised value and Zestimates were hovering around $325,000-375,000.
August 2016, I negotiated 2 offers. The first one walked as we haggled over a low price.
There are just 42 units in the corner of this protected bay which is a bird sanctuary and surrounded by parks on both sides.
I instructed the Seller to hold out and we could do better. 2 more weeks go by and then we got a good one and settled at the final price of: $694,500.
I am still getting “Zestimates” that say the value is nearly 100K less than what I sold it for.
Real Estate value will ebb and flow with the seasons and the economy but over a 10 year span there is historical evidence that supports that values steadily go up. Finding the right buyer at the right price is what my job is as a listing agent. Not selling fast. Speed does not translate to expertise in real estate.
Knowing when and how to market and sell a property to maximize your profit is everything.
You don’t have to be the expert, you just have to hire one.
I am a 2nd Generation Realtor who got my Real Estate license at 19. I receive referrals and recommendations from friends, family and other Realtors who know they can rely on my area expertise. And so can you.

A Full Home Inspection.
Knowledge is power. Take the fear out of the dreaded inspection by doing it yourself! This is everything! No Buyer will be able to surprise you with a repair or reduction in purchase price when you already know what’s behind the paint and under the house.
Shampoo the Carpets.
No odor is the best odor! Think: New Car Smell. It’s clean and fresh and ready for the Buyer. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened the door for a Buyer to show a home, and a funky odor seeps out of the house! This happens all the time. It’s the first impression for the Buyer and it will literally make or break a potential offer.
It’s cheap, easy and effective. Nothing says groomed and ready more than a fresh lawn and fresh beauty bark. Curb appeal is what gets the Buyer excited to GO INTO THE HOME. You can’t get an offer if the Buyer is not even compelled to go inside and take a look. And like a book cover, it’s a good indication of what’s inside!

What is the value of your condo? Let’s talk. Timing and strategy are everything. Let’s get real about your home value while the market is hot.
2 solid offers resulted in a bidding war for my Sellers in Newport Hills, Bellevue.
The market is hot, but it takes knowledge and experience to filter the offers, pick the best buyer and ensure that the house goes from “For Sale” to “Sold” in the next 30 days. It’s more than my sign in the yard it’s 15 years of experience that guide my Real Estate practice.

It’s a love/hate relationship when it comes to HOAs.
Homeowner Associations are well-intentioned. But man! An HOA can be a nightmare to deal with.
We like some of what they do: Keep the monument at the entrance prim and proper, police the yards, dogs and trash cans in the neighborhood, insure maintenance of security gates, pools and elevators, maintain the community flower beds….
That’s all great! Those rules keeps the neighborhood enjoyable and tidy!
No one wants to live next to the one house that never practices pride of homeownership and only demonstrates deferred maintenance.
Recently I’ve had my own clash with an HOA when they told me I could not hold a Sunday Open House!
WHAT?!!! Are you kidding me?
Here are 3 rules I advise my new Buyer’s and current homeowners to practice to avoid fees, notices and in general icky feelings from their neighbors staring them down.
- Always ask first when it comes to exterior renovations, and interior if you own a condo.
- Document everything and with pictures when possible.
- Get on the HOA board! Participate in your HOA or at least go to meetings quarterly.
If you have any specific Q’s about your HOA and what rules may/may not apply, give me a call/text. I can probably answer your question or find out quicker than you can dig up your Re-Sale Certificate or neighborhood CC&R’s.
