A comprehensive blog for all things relating to Edmonds, Shoreline & Richmond Beach. Some people work in Edmonds. Others play here. Still others are just passing through. For those of us who live here, we know what a gem we have. And while it's nice to keep it a secret and to ourselves, it's also cool to share some of it amongst one another. I'll be sharing all things Edmonds (and perhaps surrounding neighborhoods) on this blog. If you want to get to know Edmonds, WA this is the place for an unfiltered perspective on our town.

Have you ever wondered whether it'd be cheaper to drive somewhere or perhaps the benefit-cost analysis of taking alternate modes of transportation like the bus, a cab or a bike?

Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee have drafted legislation that would raise the minimum down payment for FHA mortgages to 5% and cut the maximum FHA loan amounts in many markets. The bill looks to be more of a philosophical response - rather than a fiscal one - to the questio...

Earlier this week I posted some new data that showed that 30% of home sellers lost money in March '11.  The fine folks at NPR recently asked a Juliard opera performer to sing the home prices from 2001 through 2011.  They charted national home prices from the well-known Case-Shiller Housing Price ...

Zillow just reported that one-third of all home sales in the greater Puget Sound region (Snohomish, King & Pierce Counties) lost money in the sale of their homes.  That number was 22% in March '10. If it's any consolation, that's still less than the national average of 37%. Zillow also reports th...

53.  That's the only number you need to concern yourself with this Saturday. That's the forecasted high temperature in Edmonds. With that in mind, why not take advantage of some indoor fun and fundraising? Join the students of Meadowdale High School (where my nephew attends and niece recently gra...

It's an age-old question: is it better to rent or buy?  The question has many facets and can be complex to answer depending on an individual's situation.  But generalizations are sometimes useful to view market-wide trends. I ran across a news story that reported that it is cheaper to buy than it...
