    Dry Summer Homes in Seattle Look and Smell Better Than When the Rain Storm Season Hits in October

    I think the grey days make the homes look more dreary too.

    Perhaps that’s the logic behind seasonal price fluxuations; we aren’t gonna spend top dollar for a unit with hints of roof moss and that slight twinge of mold smell when we walk in to examine it….time to break out the Pacific Northwest home selling tool, burning incence. And if you’re a home seller; don’t get cheap with the heat thermostat either, set it for 73-75 degrees….so the northeast damper outer portions of the house stay above 67 degrees, stay drier and less chance they don’t stink up the place, even a slight twinge.

    You’re mis-describing the Seattle Times from the bubble years. ER didn’t just regurgitate stuff from agents. Sometimes she came up with her own nonsense.

    Front page Times story about how the market was bad because you couldn’t sell a one bedroom $600,000 condo a few months after buying it for 10% more than you paid.

    As predicted by me, Santa Clause is the next president of the U.S., due to having promised an unlimited amount free Chinese dollars for all Americans, and there’s a 100% chance of recession.
