Is Xome funneling the home buying process, or just your ability to select vendors?
On March 11, 2009, President Obama signed into law the FY2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act that permanently prohibits banks from entering the real estate brokerage and management businesses. Legislation is often less effective than its framers intend. Whether it's federal law or local Realtor board regulations, once a rule is on the books, profit-driven individuals will look for loopholes.

It's time for serious action on #REALTOR safety. Let's open doors: 
It takes a whole community to ensure safety. Here’s how lenders and title and escrow companies can get involved in the effort.

Fixtures cause so many real estate disputes.  Know them and define them before signing a sales contract.

Do you know Bellevue neighborhoods?  Vuecrest vs. Vuemont--Clyde Hill vs. College Hill--Lakemont vs. Lake Hills--find homes for sale and research Bellevue real estate by neighborhood.

Real estate's big data just took on a whole new look:
The negotiation, dissemination and confirmation of an agreement to build Upstream this past week between brokers and NAR's board of directors was shocking in its speed. Virtually the entire broker sphere is on board. Upstream, with its newly unified backing, has the potential to alter significantly the power structure of the real estate industry.

Chicken or Egg?  Either way, Bellevue home prices and real estate inventory are keeping this market hot.
As Bellevue home prices race toward new highs, the lack of available Bellevue real estate is holding back buyers.

I've visited quite a few dental offices and Dr. Werner's office was the most relaxed I've felt in a dentist's chair. The family dentistry office is very modern and professional, but the staff make you feel at home and the low-key atmosphere makes it as relaxing as possible. I'd recommend Dr. Werner's office to anyone looking for a Bellevue dentist.
