We know that realtors are known for their unending optimism about real estate; and yes I am one of them! In my last blog, "Do What Warren Buffet Says", I pointed out how one of America's richest men feels about residential real estate. Fannie Mae's housing survey in March was recently reported as saying that 73% of people surveyed feel that it is good time to buy. That's up from 70% in February. With concerns that interest rates and associated prices will begin to rise, many are taking advantage of the timing. What is not being reported with any frequently is that rental rates tend to trend with the interest rates...so when interest goes up, so does rent. Buyers are showing more urgency in Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and areas around JBLM --so now (yes, you knew I was going to say it) is a perfect time to be thinking about whether you are selling to move up or downsize; or are looking to buy that perfect home.

""01/06/2015 - Reviewing Vicki McLellan, email@example.com Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Olympia, WA. Local knowledge: Five Stars Process expertise: Five Stars Responsiveness: Five Stars Negotiation skills: Five Stars Buying our first and second homes with Vicki were wonderful experiences. She has an APPARENT wealth of knowledge from her experience and was extremely proactive and diligent in helping us navigate the home buying process (one of which was a tedious short sale). I've also referred several friends to Vicki who all ended up buying with her help and they had nothing but good things to say. if you need an excellent, patient and pleasant realtor then you need Vicki.""
