INVESTING FOR THE FUTURE
The pandemic has been a reminder of how uncertain the stock market (and other traditional investment strategies) can be. This shows all the more why a diversified portfolio is a winning portfolio.

The Seattle market is a fighter. We’re anticipating a strong summer showing, and many Realtors think that the housing market will drive the return of the economy. So if you’re considering buying or selling a home this year, now might be the time to act. This month’s Every Door Newsletter tells you why.
TERMS VS. PRICE: WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT IN AN OFFER?
It’s hard to believe, but sellers don’t always go with the highest bid! Many times, a lower bid that comes with more favorable terms (terms that ensure the sale will happen) ends up being the winning bid. Every Door Brokers Lindsey Gudger and Jason Gasbarra discuss these terms and how we’ve used them to help our clients win bidding wars and land the homes of their dreams.

advice for buyers
Whether we’re working with a first-time homebuyer or someone who is on their seventh purchase, there are three things that we find ourselves reminding buyers over and over:
1. Focus on what you can’t change.
2. Don’t wait to see what the market does.
3. Ask questions.
Every Door Broker Katie Melton covers each of these points and why they’re so important. Read the blog or watch the 2-minute video here.
