There’s been a lot of real estate news lately, and there’s been a lot of other news that in ordinary times would be considered extraordinary. The tip of the news iceburg is more news than most of us can handle. The NBA is in shambles, and yet the season is supposed to start in a couple of weeks. You may not be into professional basketball, but there has never been more chaos in the NBA than there has been this year. The European financial news is bigger than any financial news to come out of Europe in our lifetimes. The political news in the U.S. is a gift that keeps on giving, and then there’s Lindsay Lohan. As my mother used to say, “Oh my!” Enough said.
Then there’s a humorous (and educational) news item about misconceptions of what would happen if a person fell into a volcano. In all the movies where people fall into lava, they sink in the lava. Even in the Lord of the Rings, Gollum sinks in molten lava. Alas, now we find out that the density of lava is at least three times that of water, and the viscosity of lava is about one million times as much as water. Almost anything you could throw on lava would float, including people. [Indirectly, this is real estate news since molten lava becomes real estate after it cools off.] The one movie that may have gotten this right is the Terminator in which the super heavy and extremely dense Robotic Arnold Schwarzenegger sinks in lava. The author who wrote about this lava misconception entitled his article, The Right and Wrong Way to Die When You Fall Into Lava.
Real Estate News
In the real estate news world there is more published every day than you and I can read. There is a lot of information to digest, but who can digest it all? Buying a home with all the real estate news out there is no small challenge. There is so much to know, and as I like to say, “there are many traps for the unwary.” Discerning the “right and wrong” when buying a home today can be like reading too much news and trying to filter out the irrelevant.
Real Estate News Made Easy
As a Sequim Buyer’s Agent I feel very privileged to work with the most incredible people in the world. My clients are almost all retired professionals who are eminently qualified to buy a nice home in Sequim. Sometimes I like to joke, except I am largely serious, that “my clients are all smarter than me.” My clients are smart. They are well educated, professors, authors, CEOs, financial advisers, teachers, engineers, wildlife officers, military officers, artists, and high government officials.
All of my clients have a lifetime of knowledge and experience in their chosen profession. But one thing they don’t necessarily possess–a lifetime of education, knowledge, and experience in real estate. There are many things I do not have, but a lifetime of knowledge and experience in real estate I do have. I started in real estate sales 37 years ago, went to law school and specialized in real estate law and transactions for 20 years before coming back to my first love–real estate brokerage and representing buyers. I’ve built the largest Internet real estate resources for buyers in the Sequim area, all absolutely free. There are over 1,000 articles written for buyers on this blog. Who does that?
Real Estate News Filtered for Buyers
Every day of the week I filter through the real estate news so that my clients get relevant and informed real estate news. My goal is to give my clients real estate news and information that is true and helpful in their search for their retirement home in Sequim. My clients deserve the best and latest information to help them make wise decisions in how they proceed, whether that is to buy a home or not.
