LOCAL MARKET UPDATE
The typical seasonal slowdown of new listings in September added to frustration for buyers who are competing for a very limited number of homes. Strong job growth continues to fuel demand. The state added 83,000 new jobs in the month of August, and September looked to be just as robust. The result? King, Pierce and Snohomish counties all reported double-digit price increases from a year earlier.
Nothing says Autumn in the Northwest like sweaters and if you fancy knitting your own or learning how to knit your own, I highly suggest you stop by Tolt Yarn and Wool in Carnation, WA.
With its striped awnings and selection of organic gift products Tolt Yarn and Wool is a charming place to stop and visit even if you don’t have a burning desire to make your own socks.
Knitting not enough of a challenge for you? Have some sheep or goats? Want to learn how to spin your own wool and fashion your own doodads from it? The folks at Tolt can get you started! If wool, or where it comes from is your thing, you will not be disappointed. Classes range from beginning to advanced and include how to spin and dye your own wool- all naturally!
This is what living in the country is all about. Lazy evenings in front of the fireplace w/views of snow-topped Mt. Olympus and Mt. Rainier. Come home to peace and quiet, horses in the pasture and stars abound on a cold, clear night. Shy 15 ac with an exceptional PanAbode home, highly efficient to heat/cool. Refreshed kitchen and mstr bath with stone and Quartz surfaces. Addl -800sf guest cottage/office, fully self-contained w/3/4 bath. 4 stall monitor barn w/loft, 4 bay machine shed too.
Each night in the greater Seattle area, nearly 1,000 young people are homeless. And with the winter months quickly approaching, YouthCare is in dire need of survival supplies to keep homeless youth warm and dry during the long, wet winter.
