Chinese shake up Puget Sound

$2 Billion and counting

  • Wealthy Chinese are sinking billions of dollars into Puget Sound area real estate, and by doing so they’re making a clearcut business case for protecting the environment and spending money on education.
  • The influx of foreign buyers, mostly Chinese were one of the top real estate stories of 2014.
  • It’s not just that many foreign nationals are buying here.  Rather, it’s how they’re executing transactions, with some paying all cash for pricey assets.
  • Experts predict that the trend will continue.  According to the National Association of Realtors, China has more than 2 million millionaires, and that 47 percent plan to move out of the country in the next five years.

News in Brief

  • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently announced that first-time home buyers can now qualify for loans with down payments as low as 3%
  • HUD just released a mortgage letter (15-01) that announces a rate reduction for FHA’s monthly mortgage insurance premium.  This rate reduction is effective with all FHA case #’s issued after January 26th.
  • That means that new homebuyer’s payments will be lower!!

Local real estate leader calls December “One of the best on record”

  • Real estate brokers around Western Washington reported a strong finish to 2014.  December’s sales outpaced the same month a year ago by double digits, according to new figures from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
  • December was one of the best Decembers on record.
  • MLS members reported modest year-over-year price gains (about 5.5%) for homes and condominiums that sold last month compared to 12 months ago.  The number of new listings added to inventory was nearly identical to activity of a year ago, but with pending sales outpacing new listings, the selection, as measured by total active inventory, dwindled by about 8% compared to a year ago.
  • Commenting on the combination of scarce inventory in some areas and expectations of rising interest rates, the head of one large real estate company advised, “Anyone thinking of buying a home should do it early in 2015!”
  • Prices, interest rates, and rents will continue to rise.
  • The cost of buying a home is not determined by price alone, but by price and the mortgage rate.
  • The longer a buyer waits, the higher the mortgage payment as prices and interest rates continue to increase.
  • MLS members reported 5,794 pending sales (mutually accepted offers) for an increase of nearly 11% from the year-ago total of 5,224 pendings.  In the four-county Puget Sound region, brokers notched 4,410 pending sales, the highest December volume since 2006.
  • High-end homes are selling well, according to brokers and MLS data.
  • Above the one million dollar price point in King County, we have seen back to back years of very strong activity.
  • Northwest MLS figures show nearly 2,000 homes priced at one million dollars and up sold in King County during 2014.  That’s up more than 25% compared to 2013.
  • For more modestly priced homes, first-time and move-up buyers are taking advantage of loosening lending standards.
  • “It’s much easier for purchasers to qualify for a loan now than it was just a few months ago.  The much needed 3% down payment loans are finally back for qualified purchasers,” he noted, adding, “This will allow more first time buyers to break into homeownership.”
  • In December our brokers experienced high open house traffic and strong demand from buyers as listing inventory declined.
  • Buyers are determined to take advantage of the continued low interest rates and to make their move sooner rather than later
  • Market activity stayed stady all the way into New Year’s.  “If this level of activity continues we will see yet another sellers’ market as inventory drops
  • MLS figures show there were 4,367 new listings added to inventory during December 2014, about the same as a year ago when members added 4,333 homes to the selection.  At month end, there were 17,659 homes and condos for sale.  That’s down nearly 8.1% from the year-ago inventory of 19,214 active listings.
  • Brokers are reporting tight inventory in several neighborhoods, particularly around job centers.
  • Buyers barely slowed down long enough to take the Christmas break
  • All this sales activity has eaten even further into already low inventory levels.
  • MLS figures show about 2.8 months of inventory system-wide.
  • Of the 21 counties in the monthly statistical report, King County has the tightest inventory, with only 1.4 months of supply.
  • Snohomish County was slightly better, with about 2.2 months of supply.  Six months is typically considered a healthy balance between supply and demand
  • Prices climbed nearly 5.5% from a year ago, rising from an area-wide median selling price of $275,000 to last month’s figure of $290,000.
  • That matches the price reported for October’s sales, a figure that was only surpassed in July when the median sales price overall was $300,000.
  • While some recent reports indicate a cooling of appreciation in 2015, unless more inventory hits the market, the anticipation would be that the percentage increased to be about the same as 2014 due to sustained demand.
  • If sellers are serious about getting their homes sold, it is not a good idea to ‘go fishing’ even though there may be high demand.
  • Buyers are serious about making a purchase, but they are in no mood to play games as they are well educated regarding price.  If the house is overpriced- even by a small amount – buyers will simply not make offers.
  • Fannie Mae’s recent National Housing Survey.  Its research shows 44% of consumers say now is a good time to sell a house, an all-time survey high.
  • Nearly two-thirds of survey respondents (65%) say now is a good time to buy.  “These results and attitudes will drive a healthy housing market in 2015.”

Real estate activity; August 2014 in the Puget Sound region

Minneapolis hotel developer stakes claim in big Redmond project

– A Minneapolis company called CSM is the latest real estate developer to          jump on the “let’s build a hotel in the Puget Sound region” bandwagon
– According to public records, CSM this week paid Capstone Partners $7.8       million for nearly 1 3/4 acres in Capstone’s Esterra park project – a 28             acre –     near Microsoft’s campus.

Activity      is especially high in downtown Seattle, where seven projects with a total        of nearly 1,200 rooms either are under way or about to break ground.

Western Washington housing market stability continues with modest gains in sales, prices

– “Stability” seemed to characterize the direction of Western Washington’s housing marketing through August, according to new figures from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
– Both the volume of sales and prices rose slightly from a year ago, although both indicators slipped somewhat from July.
– MLS members also reported a modest year-over-year increase in inventory, but the number of new listings added to the selection during August was the smallest since April.
– “What we are seeing now with the market is a moderated growth in appreciation, a normalizing of sales volume, and continued health overall
– “It is not a call for alarm just a balancing and adjusting of a healthy market”
– MLS members reported 9,342 pending sales across the 21 counties served by the Kirkland-based organization. That marks a 3.1% gain over the year-ago total of 9,065 mutually accepted offers. Eleven counties reported increases in pending sales during August compared to the same month a year ago.
– Commenting on inventory, MLS board member Dick Beeson said the pace of activity in the South Sound has slowd, and that means buyers have to keep a keen eye out for good bargains in areas they have been scouting.
– Sellers are more in the driver’s seat than they were earlier in the year. “It’s not a mad-rush sellers’ market,” he reported, but added, “buyers are realizing they must act in a timely manner to compete.”
– At month-end (Aug) buyers could choose from 27,060 active listings – about 2.5% more than the inventory of a year ago when there were 26,433 properties in the MLS system. The total at the end of August included 10,054 new listings that were added during the month, down slightly from the year-ago figure of 27,060. Last month’s (Aug) total number of new listings was the smalles total since April.
– System-wide, there is just under 3.5 months of supply, but the average varies widely amont the counties served by Northwest MLS. King County, with only about two months of supply, has the tightest inventory.
– We continue to have a shortage of homes for sale in King County – one of the best housing markets in the nation.
– “Fantastic job growth, foreign buyers and very favorable interest rates” as factors in creating a backlog of buyers.
– Through eight months, MLS figures show the number of closed sales is outpacing the same period a year ago by a slim margin (115 units). MLS members reported 7,775 closed sales during August, slightly below the year-ago total of 7,841 (down 0.84%) and the previous month’s total of 7,878 completed transactions.
– Year-over-year prices for single family homes and condominiums that sold last month rose about 1.6% compared to a year ago, increasing from $283,000 to $287,500. Despite the system-wide increase, five counties reported declines in median prices for sales that closed in August compared to 12 months ago (Grant, Jefferson, Kitsap, Okanogan, and Pacific). Seven counties had double-digit increases.
– In King County, the median selling price was $398,000 for a 1.4% gain from the year-ago figure of $392,500. According to MLS statistics, the sales price in August matched the figure for May, but slipped from the figures for June ($410,000) and Jly ($425,000).
– Single family homes (excluding condos) had a median selling price of $299,950 area-wide, up 2% from a year ago when it was $294,000.
– In King county, the median sales price for single family homes that sold during August was $437,000; a year ago it was $430,000.
– The current trend for strong pending activities and solid closed transaction numbers should keep the confidence level steady.
– Buoyed by low mortgage rates, buyers should remain optimistic about their new home purchses late into 2014.
– The recovering market is also boosting activity fro home improvement contractors and subcontractors.
– Sellers are able to afford to improve their homes prio to marketing them, or buyers are undertaking reasonable remodels shortly after closing.

Washington state’s Top Elementary Schools

If you want to know which neighborhoods in the Puget Sound region have the best schools, check out this top 10 list here.

It should come as no surprise that some of the top elementary schools in the state of Washington are also some of the most appealing areas, including Bainbridge Island, Bellevue and Kirkland. But some of the other top-performing elementary schools might surprise you. Great schools are scattered throughout the state.
The State Board of Education releases its school achievement index every year. The index looks at student test scores, graduation rates and other factors to determine how schools across the state are doing and to identify schools that may be struggling.
This ranking is based on that index from the 2012-13 school year, and only includes those schools that make the highest-ranked category, with a score of between 8 and 10.

Find the 10 Best Cities For Work-Life Balance

Having a positive work-life balance has more variables than just what job you have; another key component is where you live.

Bloomington, Indiana, is the top ranked city in this year’s ranking of the best cities for work-life balance, according to the finance site NerdWallet. Home to Indiana University, the top employer in the region, Bloomington was crowned the best city for work-life balance because of the low number of average weekly hours worked, as well as its shorter average commute times.

“Workers who seek a healthy work-life balance can reduce stress and improve the quality of their lives,” Divya Raghaven, a strategy associate at NerdWallet, wrote on the company’s blog.

NerdWallet figured its rankings of 536 U.S. cities based on four factors – 1 – the mean hours worked per week by an average employee in each city – 2 – the average daily commute time – 3 – the median earnings for full-time, year-round workers and 4 – the median rent in each city.

A common thread found among the highest-ranked cities is that seven of the top 10 have major colleges or universities. Rounding out this year’s 10 best cities for work-life balance are:

1 – Provo, Utah — Employees in Provo average 30.9-hour workweeks, the lowest of all the 536 cities in the study. Brigham Young University is located in Provo and is among its top employers.
2 – Gainesville, Florida — The average Gainesville employee works just 32.5 hours a week. A major employer there is the University of Florida, the eighth-largest university in the United States.
3 – Eau Claire, Wisconsin — In addition to a workweek with fewer hours, Eau Claire employees spend less time commuting and have a relatively low cost of living. The home-improvement chain Menards is headquartered in Eau Claire and is one of the city’s major employers.
4 – Tuscaloosa, Alabama — Besides being home to the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa is a manufacturing, service and retail hub. Employees there average just 33.1-hour workweeks.
5 – Iowa City, Iowa – Employees in Iowa City work an average of 34.1 hours a week and spend just 17.2 minutes on their daily commute. The University of Iowa is the largest employer in Iowa City.
6 – College Station, Texas– College Station is home to Texas A&M University, one of the largest institutions for higher education in the nation.Residents there work an average of 34.1 hours each week and have an average commute of 17.1 minutes.
7 – Eugene, Oregon – Employees in Eugene work an average of 34 hours a week and have median earnings of $42,288. Top employers in Eugene include PeaceHealth Medical Group and the University of Oregon.
8 – Bellingham, Washington — Workers in Bellingham spend an average of 33.4 hours a week on the job and have average commute times of just 17.5 minutes.


45 acres with 2 custom homes - Bellingham, WA

45 plus acres of berry ground with 2 immaculate custom homes. Accessory dwelling is 1348 sq ft built in 2002. Water rights included. Multiple outbuildings all in excellent condition. This property would also be excellent horse property.

9 – Kalamazoo, Michigan — Employees in Kalamazoo work an average of 33.6 hours a week and spend an average of $866 a month on rent. Kalamazoo is home to companies in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and manufacturing industries.

Of course, then there are the cities that ranked among the worst for work-life balance, which included Dale City, Virginia; Waldorf and Germantown, Maryland; Menifee and Tracy, California; and New York City.

Russell Wilson’s 1st day of Seahawks training camp power shuffle

Yesterday was the Seattle Seahawks first day of training camp here in Renton. All 12th Man fans were anxiously anticipating their arrival and the display of new and old talents. Of course, there was the inevitable hold out, who did not grace the field with his presence. But, for those who know that those issues will eventually work their way out – we remain focused upon those who are present and ready to show their wares.

The main attraction for me, though, was the man at the helm, Russell Wilson. And he did not disappoint, as you will see – with his display of his Super Bowl Championship power shuffle.
