About The Tim

Tim Ellis is the founder of Seattle Bubble. His background in engineering and computer / internet technology, a fondness of data-based analysis of problems, and an addiction to spreadsheets all influence his perspective on the Seattle-area real estate market.

    Happy New Years everyone. I have a question for the esteemed panel. Everyone seems convinced that Seattle is a little behind the bubble curve by a year or so — but IF the MSM picks up this story nationally and runs with it, isn’t it conceivable that the bubble would arrive in Seattle sooner?

    Part of what keeps bubbles going is ignorance, but I get the feeling we’ll be seeing many more stories (I can already see the Time Magazine cover in my head) about the national bubble and my guess is that it will impact the entire country.

    I also love the fact that during every nationwide telecast of a Seahacks game, the weather was just horrible.

    The forcast for this weekend: rain/snow showers.

    The inverse-Rose Bowl effect…
