Seattle condo development is stifled, while demand grows immensely. Results: sprawl and unaffordable homes. Seattle's real estate market needs smart growth planning from government. via WSJ MarketWatch 
Seattle's condo inventory is down 39% year over year. For buyers, that means bidding wars and rising prices. The median condo price in Seattle rose to $385,000 last month. That's 21% higher than just one year ago.

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.
