As I get more heavily involved with out-of-town investors buying in the Wenatchee area, it is becoming obvious another Property Management company is needed in the area.I have one favorite Property Management company to whom I have referred all of my owner and tenant inquiries in the past.  Recen...

As I was talking with a potential investor this morning, he asked an interesting question I'd never given much thought to.  Wenatchee is in a valley, tucked up against the east edge of the Cascade Mountain range and he noticed how this will restrict the availability of land in the future.  As dem...

Do you live in a HOUSE or a HOME?  When I was a child, we were on a very tight budget (poor).  We, literally, lived in a structure that had been converted from a garage but it was our HOME.  It had a slab concrete floor with no floor coverings, hot water only in the bathroom, and there was no cei...

For some unexplained astrological reason, I've had a number of challenging transactions lately.  When I first started in the real estate business over 25 years ago, professional home inspections were unheard of.  Now they are common practice. It's a rare transaction that does not involve a home i...

I've seen a number of posts and tributes to Mother's Day here on Active Rain today.  Here is a link to a list (and more links in the comments section.  I especially enjoyed this post. by Ann Guy of Allentown, Pennsylvania.  But, the intended purpose of my post today is to honor step-mothers. I ha...

Recently, in her blog, my virtual friend Kristal Kraft created a post to bounce around ideas for dealing with telemarketers.  Telemarketers can, truly, be a source of great irritation.  And, their uncanny ability to call at the most inconvenient times is unexplainable. My ongoing pet peeve is poo...
