Residents debated traffic congestion and school crowding during a July 13 open house where a developer revealed a proposal for a large-scale mixed-use project in the Issaquah Highlands along Ninth Avenue Northeast and Northeast Discovery Drive.

Shelter Holdings took the unusual step of engaging the public early in the design process before filing any land-use applications with the city.

The proposal for the development, named the High Street Collection, includes 1,800 housing units, senior housing, medical offices, over 300,000 square feet of retail space and 200 parking stalls for transit. Planners incorporated public recommendations received during a May 4 public meeting with residents, including a bowling alley, swimming pool and public

Moving and decluttering go hand in hand. After all, what better time to offload all those unwanted belongings than when you’re planning to sell and leave your home? But sometimes home sellers take their inner Marie Kondo a little too far.

From BDSM rooms to snow machines, there have been some epically wacky things that sellers have tried to get off their hands—even, in some cases, the family dog. (That’s ruff!)

Read on for some stories of seller add-ons that sound too wacky to be true—but aren’t.

A dungeon in the master bedroom

Sometimes you can hide the dungeon, and sometimes you can’t. In this instance Dean Ferraro, a real estate agent in Oceanside, CA, was on a listing appointment at a house that was curiously overpriced. Upon

The City Council will vote Monday on whether to send a $50 million Issaquah transportation bond to the Nov. 8 general election ballot.

The bond would fund four projects the city says will help alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

If approved by voters, the bond would be payable by excess annual property tax levies. The city estimates an annual property tax rate of 33 cents per $1,000 of assessed value over the 25-year life of the bonds.

 At that rate, the additional taxes on a home assessed at $500,000 would be $165 per year; at $600,000, the add-on would be $198 per year; and the owner of a $700,000 home would pay $231 more per year.

According to King County records, the

The major credit reporting agencies have a big change in the works that could bolster a lot of people’s credit scores.

As part of its National Consumer Assistance Plan (the result of a settlement brokered with 31 state attorneys general back in 2015), Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion are planning to significantly reduce the amount of tax-lien and civil-judgment information found in consumer credit files.

Details have yet to be finalized, but “there will be less of that type of data in credit reports moving forward,” Stuart K. Pratt, president and CEO of the Consumer Data Industry Association, a trade association that represents the credit bureaus, confirmed to Credit.com. Testing is currently underway and a final plan regarding the information

When you invite the public to view your listing, you attract many potential buyers who are on the fence and so will give you the runaround. Here are some tips for recognizing some of the people you’ll meet and how to tap into what they want.

The Dodger

He shies away from interacting with you, hoping you’ll leave him alone while he looks around. He doesn’t stay for long and tries to leave without giving you his name or contact information.

The bottom line: He hasn’t committed to making a move but is considering his options, and he’s afraid you’ll try to force a sale on him. He needs to make these decisions on his own time.

How to handle him: Give him space and watch for whether he lingers over a particular feature of the home. Pop over to
