Just sold another bank foreclosed home. Great deal for my client. The home was purchased for $87k a few years back. Lost value during these hard times & it went back to the bank. My client paid $51k cash. Since most bank owned homes are sold as is, it can be difficult to get any seller paid repairs done before closing . However, when inspecting the home we found a leak in the main water service line.The city would not repair.I arranged two bids & negotiated with the bank & got them to pay $733.00 for the repair.We closed in 23 days. Let me help you through all the hoops & stumbling blocks we can run across when buying a home or land .Thanks,Nick 360-701-9943
When I moved to Mason county 23 years ago I knew I was home for good. After completing a total renovation of a 1910 home in Seattle ,I sold and started a search for my dream home in the county. I quickly found that locating the right piece of acreage along with the perfect home was going to be a difficult task . Many real estate agents I spoke with just didn’t understand the problem I was having. They would simply hand me another listing with any type of land ,usable or not and maybe an old house or mobile home on it. So I started thinking I was going to have to build once I found a good piece of acreage. I then realized that most agents not only did not know how to identify the right land parcel but did not even want to go out and hike the property to show it to me. I started looking at their shoes to see if they wore boots or wingtips. I finally did find an agent who wasn’t wearing boots when I meet him but he did have them in the trunk of his car. He listened carefully to what I was saying and within minutes we were in his vehicle to tour two homes on acreage. He took note of my needs and the second place we viewed is where I now have been living for 23 years. The moral of this story is listen to the client and be willing to go out and make a active team effort of finding the perfect home on a good usable piece of land. Whether it’s a large tract or lot size, I will find it for you. Please call ,email or stop by and let me show you my proven process which will help to get you what you want,at the right price, the perfect place,and in the quickest time. Thank You, Nick Opolsky Nick Opolsky Your Broker

Watching the water supply

Why do we watch mountain snowpack so closely? Because mountain snow serves as a reservoir during spring and summer, gradually melting and feeding rivers and streams. Snow is an important part of our water supply. Let’s take a look at what’s going on as of Jan. 25, 2017:

Status of supplies

Weather and outlook | In December, we saw cooler-than-usual temperatures. Some parts of the state dipped to 20 degrees below average in the last two weeks. We haven’t seen too much precipitation statewide lately and we’re expected to stay relatively dry until the end of January.

We’re still experiencing La Nina conditions (cooler and wetter overall) but the forecast models see a high likelihood of switching into neutral conditions (neither La Nina nor El Nino) in the spring. While the models are currently sharing a slight consensus on warmer-than-normal temperatures for February through April, experts aren’t seeing indications of a sudden spring warmup like we had in 2016. That is good news for our snowpack.

Mountain snowpack | As of Jan. 25, our statewide mountain snowpack is 100 percent of average. The Olympic and lower Columbia regions are in the lead with 116 and 117 percent of normal, respectively. On the other end, the upper Yakima and Spokane regions are both at 76 percent of normal. Once this dry spell ends, experts believe we can expect our snowpack to continue building.

River and streams | Most rivers and streams on the west side of the state are running at near-normal or above-normal levels. Much of the east side is near normal, too, but there are some pockets of below-normal flows in parts of northeast and north central Washington. Colder areas are still seeing below-average flows because of ice.
