I hope you all have been staying well, safe, and sound. I’ve been using some of this time to focus on staying healthy, and am lucky have have Watson to keep me motivated! He needs a lot of exercise and so I not only take him running, but have walked him up and down hills and even taken him paddle boarding. I’ve been on a health kick lately, eating foods such as avocados, coconut and soy milk and hope to come out on the other side healthier than I went in.
I have also been joining dance classes and other events via Zoom. One I can recommend is Swing It Seattle. If you would like me to share any others, please let me know. Most of them show up on my Facebook feed, which has been a great way to stay in touch with friends.
I’m in charge of hosting a dinner dance and silent auction for the Northwest Dance Network (I am on the board) at the Ballard Elks August 15th. It is planned to be an Italian themed event with Chicken Piccata. Brian Lee is scheduled to play swing music, and I hope we can proceed with this, depending on what phase we are in. I’m still looking for silent auction items; if you have something you think might be appropriate, please email. 🙂
I’ve given virtual open houses and tours in the last month, which has worked out well. I also have shown homes in person, abiding by the strict rules. One rule is to only allow two people in a home at a time, and use PPE.
The figures continue to roll out for real estate activity in April.
The Northwest Multiple Listing Service press release points to low inventory and a seller’s market. Coupled with low interest rates, this is motivating many buyers and we are seeing multiple offers.
