We live somewhere beautiful – PNW

The saying goes “Where you hang your Hat” is Home. Well I can say I absolutely love living in the PNW, in Washington State. Or more accurately Lacey, WA or Olympia, Wa as everyone just groups us in with Olympia – The Capital of Washington State.

I have live a lot of places, and loved all of them, but my heart will always bring me back home to the PNW. Sometimes its hard to describe, and understand. For the locals it is a no brainer, fresh air, fresh water, mountains, trees and desert all in one state. We have Canada to the north and Oregon to the South and the Pacific Ocean to the West. You can’t beat how this is the furtherest north you can go in the continuous 49, expect for Alaska.

When you look around, and especially in Olympia, it is like a time warp. Yes its the capital of the state, but when I walk into the county court house for real estate permits. It is like traveling back into time, a simpler time, the smells, the sights all reflect an era that is long and gone, except for in Olympia, WA. When you walk down the streets and go into the shops and restaurants. It is a friendly warm welcome, as if you have always been a local. I would even say you get more room to make this city your own, as the constraints of a big city or new age era is so structured and ridged with protocols, where here you have the luxury of more freedom.

Some will see a different side, but if you know what to look for, this place is as good as it gets in my mind. I am so happy we decided to make this our home, not only for our children. Where they can have a glimpse of the world I grew up in, it helps them understand that there is more then just being a robot with standardized structure. Here you can you, see the old with the new. A launch port for exploring the world outside the United States. Plus Washington state in its self is almost a replica of the entire US, in a complete small scale minus the east coast atmosphere and south.

If you are looking for a place to call your own in the PNW – Call me – 360.338.8355

*** I will make sure to tell you the history, the legends, the facts and everything you should and need to know when buying out here in the PNW. And if you do make the change, welcome to the last wild west country in the United States!

Investing in homes in Olympia, WA

Olympia, WA has always been a sleepy town and a great place to raise a family. What has finally started turning the corner is the home investors are finally really coming out of the wood works and noticing that there is more and more people moving to Olympia. With this flipping homes has become more and more of a popular item. The catch is the home prices have risen so much that finding a home for a great price to flip is harder and harder.

I am very lucky to have the opportunity to flip three more homes on waterfront on Long Lake, in Lacey, WA. The homes all home plenty of land, there are two waterfront lots, and the third home lot, can be subdivided in two 4 lots.

Stay tuned as I take you through the entire process of how I flip the homes.

Here is some starter pics.

Summit Lake Water-Front

Summit Lake Cabin Home

When you think of waterfront in the woods with a cabin and friends and adventures await you usually will go towards the movie “The Great Outdoors”.

This cabin on Summit Lake is what I think of with regards to the movie “The Great Outdoors”. When you look around all you see is trees, and the water is beautiful with 2 docks on the property and a boat house. The cabin with 2 bedrooms and bath make you feel right at home and the solid new deck really allow you to relax and enjoy the wilderness settings. If your style is fishing, relaxing and just taking in the surroundings, this is you lake front home.

Waterfront living & views! Adorable 2 BR cottage right on Summit Lake in a great location with a deck overlooking the lake, boathouse, and has 2 docks. Adjoining property has a fire pit. Sited on a private lane. 3 parcels total included in sale with over 100 feet of waterfront.

Wind and No power – Home quality of Life

When the wind is blowing and of course in Washington State the trees are abundant, which equals branches falling on power lines everywhere. Which means disrupted or no power for hours to maybe a day or two for you and your home.

When looking at buying or building a home. A major question should be is the house wired for a generator?

Yes you can be like be, I have a generator from Cabela’s. And the generator works great. Here are the issues though. I am running my extension cords from the side of the home where I have my generator behind the fence. Then the cords go through the garage door in to the house and I plug in the key essentials, Fridge, phone and any items we would like to have the luxury of usage. It definitely works and is a nice way to get a little bit of power. Plus we have the wood burning fireplace for some heat. But every time the power goes out, I always say, “I wish my house was wired for a generator”.

Then all I would have to do is start the generator on the outside of my home. It is wired in to the house and I have the selected items I want on the generator running. No extension cords, no trying to figure out which items I can use. It is all setup and running. Now I will admit it is kinda of fun, running the extension cords and really feel like I am trying to survive a zombie apocalypse, but after the few times, yay I’m good. And the next house I buy or build, will be wired for a generator.

Commerical Properties

Pic Olympia

Right now you are starting to see a change in the Commerical real estate market. There is more and more commercial properties coming on the market, and they are selling just as fast if they are a good deal in core density locations (ideal location – down town core areas).

Lets make this very easy population keeps growing, more and more people are moving back to the city life. The downtown city locations only have one choice and that is to grow bigger and up. If you are buying a building in a downtown location that you know the city will have to expand some day out and up, just wait to be bought out. And in the mean time lease out your building and just collect on the money. This is not the fast a quick way to make money, you are now in this for the long haul and patience is key. Buy the building that is older and needs some love, but can easily be leased out because of its location. Keep the lease going for 10-30 years, and when that time comes you building will be worth multiples of 2-10 what you paid for it. Plus you were making a small amount on the side well waiting to cash out on that Commerical building.

So if you want advice or where I would recommend to look on key downtown core areas to buy a Commerical building. Please contact myself, I love finding key buildings to invest in. Way put the money in a back and make a little bit, when its so much more fun to invest in Commerical buildings, where you know the only way there is to go is UP.
