Brokers continue grappling with challenges of multiple offers.

KIRKLAND, Washington (May 4, 2017) – “Frustrating” is how brokers are summarizing the mood of buyers, brokers – and industry professionals – during the current housing market frenzy. New statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service show declines in inventory and sales, while prices continue their upward trajectory, but those numbers only tell part of the story.

  • Inventory Down 25%
  • Prices Up 10.4%
  • Bidding War Tactics For Buyers Now a Must!

“The real estate market is going absolutely gangbusters,” remarked OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “The remarkably low number of homes for sale can be blamed for the drop in sales,” he emphasized, adding, “The

Here we address some Fake News about the Real Estate Industry.

As flexible schedules and independent work become more appealing (and accepted), more and more people — including a surge of millennials — are joining the real estate business. But while there can be many perks, there are also a lot of industry misconceptions.

Below, we decided to weigh in on some of the myths about the real estate industry that newbies in the profession often think is true, and what the actual truth is.

  For the record; I'd like to point out that The Cascade Team has a significant presence in the majority of the top 10 "Best Cities To Raise A Family"... Certainly that's not a coincidence!  

Wallethub conducted a study to find which were the best places specifically to raise a family in the state. As most of us here in the Pacific Northwest already know, Washington is all-around a great place to live considering that there's a healthy job market, high educational attainment, and a natural environment that promotes an active lifestyle. Not to mention, Washingtonians earn the 12th highest per-capita personal income in the U.S. and experienced the fourth highest growth in income between 2015 and 2016.

The indicators used in selecting the top
