Scammers are hacking into agent email accounts to track transactions and closings
BY MARIAN MCPHERSON Staff Writer - Inman
Although technology has made real estate transactions quicker, more seamless and increasingly transparent, it has also made buyers and sellers vulnerable to hackers and scammers looking to make a quick buck.
In many cases, scams involve criminals posing as real estate agents asking naive buyers for an upfront fee for services in exchange for a quick turnaround time. Other tactics include sending fake emails from associations as a way to gain access to an agent’s personal information.
According to the Miami Herald, real estate agents and their clients have yet another form of
Conditional Use permit approved - Snoqualmie Affordable Housing Project finds itself one step closer to reality.
In Danna McCall's recent article in Living Snoqualmie, she details that the proposed Snoqualmie Valley affordable housing project has moved one step closer to reality.
"The City of Snoqualmie posted a Notice of Decision this week stating that a Hearing Examiner has signed off on a Conditional Use Permit requested by Panorama Apartments, LLC for their proposed 191-unit Affordable Housing development to be located in the Eagle Pointe neighborhood of Snoqualmie Ridge. Panorama is a subsidiary of DevCo, which also built Discovery Heights in the Issaquah Highlands". You can read the full details of her story HERE.
Does “Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat” ring a bell? No doubt, one of many adults’ greatest childhood memories entails dressing up on Halloween and collecting a pillowcase full of candy.
Kids all over the country partake in this one-night event, after weeks of anticipating the moment they can put on their costumes. For many children, Halloween serves to provide a first altruistic experience when they collect donations from the homes they visit on behalf of UNICEF or other charities to help undernourished children.
Since this is an early-evening event, parents tend to walk alongside their kids — especially the younger ones — as they go door to door to ensure they are safe. Along with child safety, many other factors about
For the 12th year, The Cascade Team is once again hosting Project Crayon Drive this April! For the young who find themselves at Seattle Children’s Hospital, sometimes the simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors. Yet, something as simple as crayons often goes overlooked. Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, but each child only gets a couple to use.
And that’s where The Cascade Team — in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Guild Association and several area merchants — comes in. Throughout the month of April, agents from The Cascade Team will be

Toured the limited inventory available in Snoqualmie Ridge this week with two agents on my team. Great to get out there and see the homes in the area. Some sellers/listing agents are seemingly trying to take advantage of tight inventory by pricing homes at lofty prices hoping that the demand will attract that one buyer. It's one pricing strategy but it may not be the best as it can really get a seller in a 'tight' market anxious as they see their house sit on the market for longer than others homes that have gotten under contract quickly and closed. There is also the letdown of not getting the multiple offer situation that many hear about. They can also be letdown by receiving below asking price offers when they might have had it in their…

Last week I did a blog about how incredibly low the inventory was/is in Snoqualmie Ridge, Fall City and North Bend (http://nwrealestate.thecascadeteam.com/blog/hows-the-inventory-snoqualmie-north-bend-and-fall-city.html). This week I wanted to put some interactive charts behind my numbers to really give a visual to people about just how low inventory is relative to a year ago. 2016 proved to be a record year with where sales prices reached. Much of it was driven by the extremely low inventory that was available throughout the year. You'll be surprised where the trend is heading into 2017 compared to where it was in 2016 and what that can potentially mean for the market in the year ahead and what it could mean for you if you choose to make this the year to
