From My Fave Chair to Yours!
Spring of 2020 will be a time marker in History. From my Chair today, I’m thinking about hand
sanitizers and sanitizing my Chair before sitting.
How different than just a few weeks ago. Every e-mail being exchanged ends with “be safe and
well” From the National Association of Realtors, State of Washington Realtor association, and
my own company Exp Realty, I’m getting daily updates on how to conduct business at this
moment in time. My goal in writing “My Fave Chair to Yours today is to offer Encouragement
and inspiration for these uncertain times.

What I believe is that when this history-making event is behind us, we will have a flood of
activity in the Real Estate world. Right now, there is very little going on. Its times like these that
Buyers who desperately need to find a home or sellers who have no flexibility or ones that want
to take advantage of the lack of activity in the marketplace will surface. There is always business
After all these days at home, I believe, the long periods of looking at our four walls thinking
about the future will lead us to thoughts about buying a new home. Dreams to buy a larger home
or a smaller home or move to a different area will surface—potential adjustments in home
purchases or sales to subtract from or add to the financial wealth picture. Green Homes or a
home with up to date technology, more creative living space, more gardening room, play areas,
or more garages could be a list of ideas for the Dream Home. Find your Dream home.
I believe, too, that for families that want to combine their living situation to be closer to each
other, available for more care if needed, and connect lifestyles for the future. These people will
be looking for homes that offer Additional Dwelling Units (ADU)
There are many of these types of living arrangements on the Market today. Locations where
there are two homes on one property. Homes that offer separate living quarters for guests,
members of their family, or they rent it out either on full or part-time bases. This option is an
alternative to Adult care or assisted care homes. Take a search for yourself.
Today I took a look to see what offerings were available. If you are looking in Snohomish county
today for a home that has an additional dwelling unit (ADU) that is over 800sq feet, you find 15
homes that meet the criteria. In King County, there are 20 homes listed and active on the Market
What is your dream about where you live? Will you be ready for a change in a few months? Now
maybe a good time for a consultation over the online video conferencing link called Zoom.
Here is a list that we could talk about:
The Desired Criteria
Timeline for a purchase or sale to happen
What financial impacts of current events will have on housing?
Financial planning for new homes
Wealth Building with Real Estate
First home buying
The list certainly could be longer. If you would like to explore in a Zoom environment with
others, the ideas that I have regarding Buying & Selling Real Estate come to join an Event that
Marcelle Allen, an author and entrepreneur, and myself a 22-year Real Estate agent will happen
on Zoom. It’s a Game; it’s thought-provoking, and its fun! Take your mind off the News and
take time to Hope for a better tomorrow.
We believe & want to help you achieve your life goals beyond today & we can start those
conversations over Zoom in consultation or this fun game called: Financial Joy and Wealth
Building with Real Estate. Sign up and Join us.
Stay Safe, Stay Well,
Dream the Dreams that reflect your Hope.
