CELEBRATION FRIDAY IN WEST SEATTLE
Friday was a day of celebration for my clients as I was able to hand them the keys to their dream home in West Seattle. This home is a 100 year old Craftsman in the Admiral District of West Seattle. It features an amazing view of Puget Sound and downtown Seattle. Solidly built, with the attention to detail that marks the homes of that era, it was the end of their search. Friday marked the completion of weeks/months of negotiation because this home, like so many others now, was a short sale.
These clients were previously my neighbors in the Ashburn community of Renton. We have become friends over the years and I was delighted to be able to help them accomplish their goal of selling their Ashburn condo (more on that later) and find their dream home in the West Seattle area. My role as their realtor was made easier because they knew what they were looking for, where they wanted to live and what their top dollar commitment would be. They were willing to rent for a few months knowing the process of short sales is typically slower than normal sales. Their patience was rewarded and on Friday they were able to walk into their “forever” home knowing they had gotten it for the best possible price while the interest rates remained at record lows.
I am excited for my friends/clients and will be anxious to watch the process as they dig in to the remodel plans they have for the future while still being able to live in and enjoy their lovely home in the Admiral District of West Seattle. Congratulations Sean & Margaret!
