Please consider helping 2 Mukilteo familys who lost everything in a house fire.

by Michael & Leilani McCormick-West

Wednesday August 5th, in our small town of Mukilteo two homeowners lost their homes and everything in it, because of a fire. Everyone got out okay, but they are still looking for their beloved dog Ottie (unfortunately, we have learned that Ottie didn't survive the fire) . The Kornegay family and the Nelson family have lived in this community for a very long time. Mukilteo is such a strong community and now is a time to help support our neighbors in a time of need. I know our community will stand strong behind these families and let them know we are here to help and support you. Thank you so much and any little bit will help.

Fire burns Mukilteo homes

Mukilteo Spring Market Heating Up!

by Michael & Leilani McCormick-West

3 Reasons to sell your Mukilteo home this spring!

Many Mukilteo home sellers are still hesitant about putting their house up for sale. Where are prices headed? Where are interest rates headed? These are all valid questions. However, there are several reasons to sell your home sooner rather than later. Here are three of those reasons. 1. Demand is about to skyrocket Most people realize that the housing market is hottest from April through June. The most serious buyers are well aware of this and, for that reason, come out in early spring in order to beat the heavy competition. We also have a pent-up demand as many buyers pushed off their home search this winter because of extreme weather. Sellers in markets where seasonal weather is never an issue must realize that buyers relocating to their region will increase dramatically this spring as these purchasers finally decide to escape the freezing temperatures of the winters in the north. These buyers are ready, willing and able to buy…and are in the market right now!

2. There Is Less Competition - For Now Housing supply always grows from the spring through the early summer. Also, there has been a growing desire for many homeowners to move as they were unable to sell over the last few years because of a negative equity situation.Mukilteo Homeowners have seen a return to positive equity as prices increased over the last eighteen months. Many of these homes will be coming to the market in the near future. The choices buyers have will continue to increase over the next few months. Don’t wait until all the other potential sellers in Mukilteo to put their homes up for sale.

3. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move-Up If you are moving up to a larger, more expensive home, consider doing it now. Prices are projected to appreciate by approximately 4% this year and 8% by the end of 2015. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will wind-up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait. You can also lock-in your 30 year housing expense with an interest rate at about 4.5% right now. Freddie Mac projects rates to be 5.1% by this time next year and 5.7% by the fourth quarter of 2015. Moving up to a new home will be less expensive this spring than later this year or next year. By the KCM crew

It has been a great Real Estate Market here in Mukilteo  this summer lots of brisk sales in all price ranges, inventory dropping to record low's at times, multiple offers, escalating prices too! now things seem to have calmed down a little, inventory has shot up about 35% in the last 60 days so some homes are sitting on the market a bit longer, while some get snatched up quickly. We will see what happens as the kids go back to school and the fall market sets in.

Mukilteo Garage Sale

by Michael & Leilani McCormick-West

As part of the preparation in selling your Mukilteo home de-cluttering your home is a logical first step and the Great Mukilteo garage sale is just in time for the spring market.

 

Part 1 of 5: Why have a garage sale?

Mar 20, 2013

Spring has arrived, and with it comes thoughts of gardening, spring cleaning, vacation, l'amour and, of course, the 21st annual Great Mukilteo Garage Sale, this year slated for Saturday, April 27.

As in years past, The Beacon will run a special section listing sales being held in the greater Mukilteo area, including south Everett, Picnic Point and Serene Lake. Last year, bargain hunters found more than 100 sales from which to choose.

And again this year, in an effort to help sellers get ready, we're running a special series outlining the steps needed to stage a successful garage sale. We'll include hints on what sells, how to price items, joining forces with friends and neighbors, and set up and display ideas. Good luck. – Ed.

OK, so why bother? First and foremost – money. What better reason than that?

Well, there are a few more reasons to have one. If you aren't sure if you want to bother having your own, maybe one of these will decide you.

Space

Running out of room for stuff? Or maybe you would love a new shelf, but that old chipped thing hanging on the wall is in the way?

Maybe you don't have the money for a new shelf, but you would if you sold that old chipped thing.

There is no better or more efficient way to clean out all the clutter in your life than a garage sale.

If you can't bear to throw things away, which can seem like such a waste, nothing motivates to get rid of junk than the promise of some money, which means new things.

Contacts

It may sound strange to some of you, but many contacts can be made from having a garage sale.

One woman used to set up a stand at garage sales for her make-up business. She got a lot of home parties that way.

At another garage sale, a woman gave out notepads for free that had her husband’s rug cleaning business advertised on them.

This really can work. You can also find people to babysit for, clean house, house sit, do odd jobs, sell crafts to, and almost everything.

 

Real junk

Get rid of your garbage. How about that broken chair you would otherwise have to pay to have hauled away? Give it away for free.

There’s nothing better at a sale than free stuff. Maybe you think it's hopeless, but someone else may know exactly how to fix it.

Maybe they have the same chair with a different part broken. If you put the two together, you have a chair good as new.

This works, really, although sometimes the garbage people take away from a garage sale can surprise even the most experienced seller.

You have nothing to lose but a house full of items you no longer want, and the chance to put some cash into your pocket. What could be better?
