Have a bench or a chair next to the door with a basket of "booties" and a sign that reads "Let's keep the future owners floors in great shape...Please remove shoes or wear booties provided" Thank you.... more
I bought solid bamboo flooring for installation. But one person told me that it was the worst thing to do for my house, that manufacturers use 20 % of glue in this product, plus formaldehyde which will be releasing vapors into your room, and it gets fringes when it is refinished and i'llt get stained easily. When I opened boxes and got few planks out to see- they were very sticky and very stinky. I couldn't handle the smell and decided to return it to the store. No more bamboo flooring for us!... more
It's tough to forecast prices in the future as the previous answers have mentioned. That being said we can look back at recent months to get an idea of where the market is headed. Right now real estate in Seattle continues to trend upward, there simply isn't enough inventory to match the number of buyers out there. In this seller's market the average sold price for single family homes and condos in Seattle during June, $531,000, was the highest monthly average since December 2008.
Unless there is a steep increase in inventory, which seems unlikely, prices should continue to rise as there is a backlog of motivated buyers looking for their own home. This large group of motivated buyers is causing prices to rise as they are often bidding against each other in multiple offer situations that can send sold prices skyrocketing. Further complicating matters is that Seattle is still growing as a city which is bringing even more buyers into the market. Simply put I wouldn't predict prices to fall at any point in the near future.
I would recommend starting the buying process now. This means getting talking to lenders about a loan and interviewing Realtors to find one that you are comfortable working with. If you have any questions I would be happy to assist in any way that I can.
Well it depends on when you noticed the issue. If it was after the windows were broken they may claim you are responsible because it's possible you damaged it with negligence. I would contact the HOA and find out for sure. Definitely just call a residential glass repair company and have them give a statement about the window seal to give to your condo HOA.
