How Dad Makes a Home

Growing up it wasn’t uncommon for there to be renovation projects in my house. My dad, could do just about anything as far as fixing the house up. I remember him taking out the old carpet and putting down beautiful hardwood floors. Pine boards he had worked on himself at the saw mill part time to afford them. The thing I remember most about my dad was that he was always working. He left every morning to go to his job, came home to work in the garden, to grow food for us. He’d collapse on the couch just to do it all over again tomorrow. That’s how my dad showed his love and made our house a home.

The definition of a father is simply one who acts like a father to a child or is a biological parent of a child. However, the true role of a father goes much deeper than that. A father can be many things usually all at one time. He might be the protector from monsters under the bed, the provider, teacher, and many other things over the course of his children’s life.

I already told you the story of my dad working endlessly to improve our home and grow us food to eat. He provided for us financially of course working full time but providing for your children goes beyond that. He provides his time going to baseball games, he provides his knowledge for his child to understand how to solve a problem, he provides a listening ear for his kids troubles at school or in relationships.

A father is also looked at to be the protector of the home and children. When I was home alone, an intruder came lurking around, I called Dad (and 911 of course). He beat the police there and they ran off when his truck hit the driveway, thankfully before getting into our house or taking much from the shop. He stayed with me, protecting and providing a sense of security and comfort.

My Dad taught me a lot growing up, not only about how to build a bookshelf or how to grow vegetables in the garden. He taught me the value of hard work every day, not by his words but by his actions. Dads can teach us practical things like fixing this or that, the art of grilling, how to change a tire or check the oil. However, they can also teach us so much more than that. How to balance work and home, how to be a better person, how to set goals, gain independence and so much more.

Being a Dad is a tough job, one that many willingly do every day. They have such a powerful and important role in the family’s life. Providing for them, sheltering them, and loving them, it is truly a monumental task, thankfully they’re fully prepared for the job.

Thank goodness for all the Dad’s in this world, Happy Fathers Day!

Going to the Lake this Weekend?

Boating in Lewis CountyHere in Lewis County we like to spend a lot of time on or near the water. Whether you are canoeing on Skookumchuck, water skiing on Mayfield or fishing for trout on Riffe Lake, Lewis county is full of creeks, ponds, rivers, and lakes. All of this fun on the water means that the threat of drowning, even for those who can swim well, is an ever-present threat. In fact, Washington has a higher drowning average than the rest of the United States. According to the Washington Department of Health “In the latest data available from 2010, the unintentional drowning rate in Washington State was 1.6 per 100,000. There were 133 Washington State residents who died from unintentional drowning, including 17 boating related drowning deaths.” Those numbers should be enough to remind you that even a beautiful day on the lake can quickly turn tragic.

Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you: TV and movies have lied to you. I know, it’s not really a shock but hear me out. We are programmed to think that drowning looks like a lot of splashing and yelling however, that is not usually the case. Drowning is often quiet, a response from the brain to conserve as much air as possible to breathe. This phenomenon is called the Instinctive Drowning Response named by Francesco A. Pia, Ph.D.

Think it sounds a little suspicious? According to the CDC “From 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. An additional 332 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents.” If you plan to be on or around the water, these are statistics you need to be aware of. Not just to keep yourself safe but your friends and family as well. Children are one of the highest age groups. The report goes on to say that drowning is the number two cause of accidental death in children age 15 and under (just behind vehicle accidents). Of the approximately 750 children who will drown next year, about 375 of them will do so within 25 yards of a parent or other adult. In 10 percent of those drownings, the adult will actually watch them do it, having no idea it is happening.”

According to Pia Instinctive Drowning Response looks like this:

Silent: the person drowning has no extra air to call for help, their brain focuses on just getting air in and out of their lungs.

Bobbing: They will bob up and down in an effort to get their mouth above water to inhale or exhale.

Stiff Arms: Their arms will be out to the side, hands on the water’s surface in an effort to help them stay afloat.

Still: They won’t be kicking; their legs will be straight and unmoving. Remember, movement takes energy, and the brain has signaled to conserve as much as possible

Drowning in a lakeThis response last anywhere for 20-60 seconds before the person goes completely under water to stay. This does not give anybody much time to respond. Sometimes even trained professionals miss the warning signs. “When a person is actually drowning, in many cases they seem to be playing,” says Gerry Dworkin, a professional aquatics safety and water rescue consultant for Lifesaving Resources LLC. “That’s one of the problems for moms, dads, and even lifeguards. They see somebody floating on the surface, but because of the movement of waves, they appear to be moving or playing even though they may be unconscious.”

Knowing how to swim is important. But even good swimmers can drown, and it can happen fast, Steinman says. “Never take your eye off children in the water. You have to watch them all the time. You can’t look away.”

Don’t let a day of fun in the sun, spent on one of our favorite water ways turn to tragedy. Enjoy the kick off to summer this Memorial Day weekend and keep it safe!

How a Mom Turns a House Into a Home

How do you define a home? According to Merriam-Webster it is “a place of residence” but for
most the definition goes beyond that. It is where you are loved, accepted, and welcomed with
open arms and a smile no matter what time of day or how tired the occupants are. As corny as it
sounds, home is where the heart is.

To me the true definition of a home is not a physical location, but a feeling you get when you
walk in the door. And to me, one of the true tests to know if a house is a home, is if your mom is
there. A mother’s job, well one of them, is to make the house a home for her family. If you ask
some a mother could be defined as the heart of the home. The one person to make sure you
are comfortable, well fed, have something to drink, or a cookie to snack on. The one who keeps
the home thriving and moving together as a family.

For some home is the smell of your mom’s cooking when you walk in the door. Or it is the scent
she always used in the home. It’s the family albums she always displayed. It’s knowing she’ll be
in her chair in the corner of the living room sewing a quilt before you even walk in the door
because that’s where she is everyday at that time. It’s never leaving the house hungry, even if
she had to get up at 6AM to make you breakfast and knowing dinner will be ready for you at
5PM on the dot.

To be a mother is not an easy task and what roles you decide to play is different for everybody.
A mother can choose to stay home and devote her time to nurturing her children and taking care
of her home. A mother can be a single mom working two jobs to help give her kids a better life.
A mother can be a woman who never had children, but opened her home and heart to those in
need. Like home, there is no one definition of mother but without one, the other just isn’t the
same.

Why Curb Appeal Matters

Like it or not first impressions matter, when a buyer sees your house for the first time they are already forming an opinion of your home and whether or not they would like to purchase it. If all they see are weeds in the flower bed and grass too high they are making a mental list of things they’re already going to have to work on, even before they step foot into the house. At first glance you want your home to leave potential buyers excited to go inside, not wondering what they will find.

The term “curb appeal” generally means everything you can see from the street or the car as you are pulling in. This means everything from trees, shrubs, the paint on your house, grass, flowers, and any other additional landscaping. Previous generations of sellers would spend hours making sure these details were taken care of because they knew it mattered.

Curb appeal also helps the seller when it comes to the bottom lined. Two houses could be exactly the same but if one has an overgrown lawn and dying shrubs then the second house is much more likely to be sold for a higher price. Buyers see value in the second home because curb appeal sends a message that this home has been taken care of. They want to know they are making a wise investment.

A well taken care of lawn and surroundings can also set you apart from other sellers in your area. Look at who your competition is and gauge what their yards look like compared to yours. Could your porch use a new coat of paint? What about your scuffed front door? Small details can add up to where your home is more memorable for not a lot of money.

Curb appeal is something often overlooked by potential sellers. However, just like you should never try and list a home with clutter to the ceiling, you should do your best to make the outside of your home as presentable as possible. It can be a dealbreaker for potential buyers at worst and at best it can add value to your home without spending nothing but a little time and hard work. Keep in mind that first impressions are often everything and hard to change once they’ve been made, you want your home to reflect as positively as you can.

Don’t let your home be a “Drive by”, entice them to stop to take a closer look.

Tips for Getting Your Offer Accepted in a Hot Market

 

After all the time you have spent searching for your perfect home you are now ready to make an offer. Congratulations! That is a HUGE step toward getting your dream home. However, in a lot of situations even a full offer may not be enough to being accepted. When there are more buyers than sellers competition is high and so are the prices. Here are some great tips you can use to make sure your offer comes out on top.

  1. Work Fast – This one is kind of a no brainer. While you should never jump into a purchase as large as a home be sure to do your research and know what you are looking for as well as what you’ll be able to afford. Do not wait a week after you see a house you like online to contact your realtor, somebody could have already seen the home and put in an offer. If you decide you like it, ask to see it and make an offer as soon as you feel comfortable doing so.
  2. Make your offer simple – Remove any seller concessions or contingencies you have regarding a sale of another property. This simplifies it for the seller and gives them less to have to figure out.
  3. Don’t ask for Personal Property – Despite how much you love the curtains or that grill on the patio it weakens your offer to ask for personal property. If the seller has two similar offers, one asking for items and the other not they are much more likely to remember how much everything will cost to replace and be hesitant to go with an offer asking for items.
  4. Offer Above Asking – If you really love the house and know there is a potential for other offers ask above what the price is. Your offer may very well have to beat out other offers. Instead of putting in an offer either lower or at asking, think of how much you will realistically be willing to spend and ask your realtor for advice regarding comparable houses in the area. That may be able to give you a much better number than guessing.
  5. Write a Letter – Think of the nostalgia you feel when selling your home. They are feeling the same thing. While it may not work in every situation a letter to the seller can often persuade them to go with your offer, even if it is not the highest. Let them know who you are, your plans for the house, or even a photo. If you see your 2 kids playing in their huge back yard then include that, it may remind them of all the times their kids did the same.
  6. Offer All Cash – While I understand this may not be a realistic option for some people cash often persuades sellers to go with an offer. They know the buyer will be able to follow through and is much less risky for sellers.
  7. Close Faster – In many situations the faster the close the better it is for the seller. This is especially true if they have already moved and are paying two mortgages, utility bills, etc. on two houses. If you can shorten the closing date then in this case it is much more appealing.
  8. Include a Pre-Approval Letter – Be proactive and get a letter from your bank stating what you are able to have. While you are able to tell the seller you qualify them, reading it is more substantial of a statement.
  9. Pay the Sellers Closing Costs – This is an expensive part of selling a home, so if you are able this is something to consider doing.
  10. Offer Again – Just because your original offer was not accepted does not mean there isn’t a chance you will get the property. Be able to come back with a number and have your realtor submit another offer as soon as possible.

 

While buying a home is never an easy process by using some of these tips you are guaranteed to be more successful. With enough persistence, luck and know how you will be in your dream home before you know it.

Is a Tiny Home Right For Me?

They look like the answer to all your problems don’t they? I know they do mine. If I could only get rid of all the clutter (okay, my husband’s clutter) and move into a tiny home all problems would be solved! With the ability to move anywhere and a simplistic design, where everything has a place I can completely understand the appeal of a tiny home. But are they right for everybody? Below are some things to consider before you start selling everything you own and scaling down to a tiny home.

Where Will You Put Your Home?

Sometimes finding a place to park your tiny home can be a problem. Tiny homes generally fall into two categories permanent and on wheels. If you have a permanent tiny home zoning code and other regulations (HOA for example) may have to be considered. If you choose to have a home on wheels, this requires hooks ups just like an RV would, thus RV parks are often your best bet, which of course requires a fee.

Wheels or No Wheels?

A traditional home (no matter how small) still has building codes it needs to stick to. A tiny home on wheels will have to conform to the standards of the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association if you wish to have your home in an RV park. No matter which you choose it is important to find the right builder who will work with you and make sure everything in your tiny home is up to the code and the right regulations are observed. Also, another thing to consider in the wheels vs. no wheels debate: Do you have something to move your home with? The smallest of homes often require a diesel truck to haul and the larger homes on wheels require an even bigger truck and trailer.

Don’t Forget About Your Family or Lifestyle

While it may sound appealing to be able to move anywhere or stay in one place only so long the tiny house lifestyle is not necessarily for everybody. A 250 SF home may be able to hold two people comfortably but adding in children, pets, guests, etc. can cause some problems. In some instances there just simply is not enough room for everybody to live in a tiny home comfortably. And think about it, do you REALLY want your teenager sleeping in the loft across from yours? If you could handle it, that’s great, but I know many people who would pass on that idea. You also cannot forget about pets, will a great dane work as well as a chihuahua? What added space will they require? Do they need space to run or will they be content with a limited floor plan to move around in?

Give it A Shot….But Before You Buy

Trying it out is obviously going to be the best way for you to know if a tiny home is going to fit your family or your lifestyle. Come up with a list of tiny home styles you like and see what is available to rent in your area. If you rent a home for a week and by day 3 you’re ready to go insane it may be a sign you need to rethink how tiny of a home you want to go.

Consider Beyond the House

Are you a person who spends more time outdoors than in? With a tiny home it is important to take advantage of any additional square feet you possibly can. This may be as simple as having a few folding chairs and table, a built in porch, or a retractable awning. The possibilities are endless with a tiny home but have a huge impact when looking at the overall footprint of your home.

Utilities

While tiny homes are in general less expensive all around than regular homes there are some additional costs to keep in mind. Should you choose to stay in a RV park you will have to pay rent on the space you are in which generally covers electricity, water, and sewage. Some RV parks also have WiFi and other amenities you can take advantage of for an additional fee. Should you have a permanent tiny home you will have to be connected to a water source, electricity, sewer, internet, and any other services you need.

Don’t Forget Your Goals

If you are moving into a tiny home entirely to save money you may want to investigate other alternatives before moving into a tiny home. Given some areas renting or homeowner ship may be cheaper it is always best to do your research thoroughly. However, if you are making an informed decision that aligns with what you want to do in the long term and what your goals are a tiny home can be a fantastic choice to help you on your way.

Is Owning a Vacation Rental Right for You?

It sounds great doesn’t it? Put your second or vacation home online and have income instead of a vacant space. It sounds like a great investment but is it really?

What Is It?

A little background on Airbnb and VRBO: these are websites that allow you to place your home, or vacant rooms for rent to travelers or vacationers who would prefer to stay in a different environment than a hotel.

Why Is It Right For You?

Lewis County, is one of the areas greatest destination places. Many homes in White Pass Ski, Riffe Lake, and Lake May-field benefit from using Airbnb and VRBO to list their property because this area is full of those looking for a vacation spot.

Having your home listed on VRBO or Airbnb is a reliable form of investment if you are looking to rent your home for short periods of time. This allows you easy  access to your property for you to vacation whenever you desire.

The Pros

Financial Renting your home out for short term makes a lot of sense if you only get to go once or twice a month and the home otherwise stays empty. This means you aren’t paying payments, tax, insurance, utilities, etc. on an empty house that you’re not getting to enjoy. You are instead making money off your property that in turn pays for itself and then some.

Ease of Use Airbnb and VRBO make adding your home a breeze. Their fees are affordable and not as outrageous as using a property management agency. They also have an accountability system where both renters and owners can leave feedback. So if your home exceeded expectations they will leave you a fantastic review, or if they left your home a disaster zone you can rate them warning other owners they may want to raise their cleaning fee.

Flexibility You get to choose your guests, unlike a property management company who is in charge of filtering renters it is your call. You make all the final decisions on how and to who to rent your home. You are allowed to screen guests by asking them questions, putting limits on the number of people, pets, noise, etc. The fact that guests’ Facebook pages are linked to VRBO and Airbnb websites also helps you to gather information about your guest. Just like if you were hiring them for a job, if their photos are nothing but partying every night of the week, you may just want to pass.

New Connections Isn’t it always interesting to see what draws a person to a specific area? While you may never meet face to face (unless you’re renting a room not a house) you still have a conversation with people you never would have otherwise. While some guests may not mind being left to their own devices you can always offer to be a tour guide or give them ideas of what to do that their Google search did not say. If you really enjoy their company, go to the local coffee shop or market together. New friends are always welcome, and they’re much more likely to rent from you again as well.

Cultural Exchange If you love learning about new cultures, this is one of the best ways you to achieve that. You can find more about a culture by a conversation than all the research in the world. By hosting people from different places you are have the possibility to learn something new and enrich your view of the world.

The Cons

Taxes and Fees The only thing certain in life is death and taxes right? One of the challenges specific to Lewis county is the additional fees and taxes you as a host are left to pay. You will need to record the income for tax purposes of course, you will also need to save money for cleaning costs and potentially feeding costs as well.

Registering a Business Which really sounds more intimidating than it is, however you cannot list your home without doing so. This requires additional time and financial management, receipts, income, and expenses must be well documented and managed well.

The Burden of Managing Your Property The cost of your time to manage your property may be worth more than what it gives you in return. To keep your home up to standard you may have to add maintenance costs in, or furnish your home differently, or buy additional items renters are looking for such as a hot tub or pool table.

Damages It isn’t a matter of if it will happen but when. It is inevitable that at some point something will get damaged. Whether the toddler found a marker and decided to paint your walls or the college kids had too much to drink and flooded your second floor. Making sure you can have these damages covered by a homeowners policy is crucial for your business to be registered.

 

Like anything, renting your home on Airbnb or VRBO, isn’t something you should just jump into without considering the consequences. It can be a great opportunity for you to make additional income, however, it has drawbacks as well.

2017 Looking Back at Real Estate

 

Lewis County Market Statistics

Overall 2017 was a fantastic year for Lewis County. The amount of homes on the market went down slightly making prices higher than ever. There was a consistent amount of new listings for the year, and sold homes were on the rise. Below are some of the top statistics for 2017:

As you can tell, the number of homes decreased slightly from January 2017 with 982 to December 2017 with 868, with an overall decrease of -2.69%. At the same time home prices increased going from $154,500 in January of 2017 to $175,000 in December of 2017 going up 13.27%. With the low inventory the number of days on the market also decreased 38.18% with the average number of days in January 2017 being 55 and December 2017 being at just 34 days. The higher prices also drive a higher cost per square feet increasing 15.6% from January to December 2017.

The sales in Lewis Co. are strong with sellers continually getting an average of 97.78% of list price for the year of 2017. With the average 2017 home priced at $162,297 the seller would have received $158,694.

Overall, 2017 was an awesome year for Lewis Co. and we are looking forward to 2018 being another strong year. If you are looking to sell or buy we are more than happy to help you in anyway we can.

Just How important is your water?

 

Can you imagine not having access to water? Even though there is a potential well on your property? With the signing of a single law you are suddenly no longer еntitlеd tо water unless уоu mееt сеrtаin (virtuаllу impossible tо mееt) соnditiоnѕ. If you live in Washington, this is your reality. The Hirѕt law аffесtѕ all new wells аnd rеlаtеd dеvеlорmеnt, аnd it may аlѕо аffесt existing wеllѕ аnd water users.

Background

Before this law there was the Growth Management Act (GMA) passed in 1990. This had three separate effects:

  1. Set up a ѕуѕtеm of оrdеr аnd control for hоuѕing аnd development
  2. Eѕtаbliѕhеd a rеvеnuе gеnеrаtiоn ѕуѕtеm fоr local gоvеrnmеnt to maintain аnd еnfоrсе соntrоl
  3. Provided аttасhmеnt роintѕ fоr еnvirоnmеntаl groups to litigаtе in оrdеr tо mаintаin аnd еxраnd gоvеrnmеnt соntrоl оvеr the mоѕt basic nееdѕ of the masses

9560796 – water pump

The GMA was supposedly set up to prevent urban sprawl, thereby benefiting individuals. However, in reality it has only given the government increased control, another revenue stream, and another loophole to allow their friends more freedom to hurt the citizens the government is supposed to be protecting.

One of the more significant impacts of the GMA is how much control it allows for. Stating the government could and in fact should manage housing for the masses. Now the Hirst law has built on that principle and taken it a step further. Hirѕt аffесtѕ all new wells аnd rеlаtеd dеvеlорmеnt, аnd it may аlѕо аffесt existing wеllѕ аnd water users. Like thе GMA, itѕ еffесtѕ will bе fеlt in еvеrу nооk аnd сrаnnу оf thе ѕtаtе.

Whatcom County v. Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board Outcome

With this ruling the court flipped the old rules on its head. Prior to this any home or business using under 5,000 gallons a day the well was allowed no questions asked. Now, however, with this ruling anyone who wishes to build a new home on rural property must prove water use will not extract a single drop from other bodies of water in the area. The only option this leaves potential home builders is to undergo a costly and complicated process to prove that no water is being taken from other bodies of water. Can you imagine trying to determine if your well was going to do this? How much time and resources this will take? Even though there is still some debate on how far this will reach outside of Whatcom county most other counties in Washington have simply followed the lead of Spokane County, and have stopped providing permits for wells completely. Thе Dераrtmеnt оf Eсоlоgу арреаrѕ tо bе fоllоwing that lеаd аѕ wеll.

Existing Wells

With all future wells under the Hirst legislation it is not hard to wonder what the potential ramifications will be for existing wells. Will this legislation open the door to all wells being required to undergo the required testing at the landowners expense?
