Everyone loves taking about themselves. That’s a truism from psychology 101. So our course for agents seeing a mailer where people have said nice things about them or given testimonials looks amazing. They also love to show off all the homes they have sold…

It’s pretty unlikely anyone would self-mail out a critical review of their services… Hummmm

And all of those homes?.... We’ll it’s good to know that agent is making a lot of money….. But there isn’t anything mentioning the value or saving to the customer is there?

In a nut-shell… It’s all about “Them”

Here at The Cascade Team, 

It isn’t about “Us”

It’s about “YOU” our Customer/Clients

 

 

You, our client, is our focus.

The flaming-hot housing market has seen median home prices soar an unprecedented 24% since the outbreak of the virus last year. But in recent weeks, that fire has lost some of its heat as buyers finally start to push back at sky-high prices. Simply put: The housing market is slowing a bit.

Already, a growing list of doomsayers point to the shifting market as taking us one step closer to a bursting housing bubble. In their minds, housing went up too fast and now must come back down.

But what does the data say? When you look under the hood, the run-up to 2008 housing bubble and the hot 2021 housing market are very different bull markets. While there are several reasons why our latest frenzy won’t result in a bust, there’s one reason in particular…

Our dedication to your successful dealings (buying or selling) are unwavering. We are firmly committed to the service, results, and value for you with every transaction.

My husband and I just recently drove up to Leavenworth from Monroe for our wedding anniversary. 

 

The drive took a little over 1.5 hours from Monroe to the town of Leavenworth

Some quick facts about Leavenworth, according to Leavenworth.org  

 

Leavenworth is a small, beautifully designed, old world Alpine/Bavarian style village. If you envision a small town, somewhere in Germany, nestled in a narrow valley and surrounded by snow-covered mountains. Leavenworth could be that very place.

We stayed at a cute little VRBO (vacation rental by owner) cabin with no more than a 20 min walk into town. There we had a beautiful view of the Wenatchee River. We started each morning with a cup…

Most of all the real estate marketing you see out there from other companies is all about “Them…. The Agent.”

Completely missing the most important point… It’s not about “Them”….. It’s about the “Client/Customer”

 

 Everyone loves taking about themselves. That’s a truism from psychology 101. So our course for agents seeing a mailer where people have said nice things about them or given testimonials looks amazing. They also love to show off all the homes they have sold…

Home buyers are finding some relief, but Northwest MLS brokers say it is temporary.

  •          New listings slightly outgain homes going under contract.
  •          Highest level of Inventory since October of 2020
  •          There is some ‘normalization’ in our market as it relates to the historical summer slowdown.”
