Want to do something fun and Seattle-based today? There is an event at the Olympic Sculpture Park, one of the ongoing days of fun and sun planned through August 30 for Summer at Olympic Sculpture Park (check out the events on Saturday the 11th,including yoga,drawing and sketching,zumba rhythms,food truck and more).
Today's excitement includes a visit by food truck Charlie's Buns and Stuff (check out Food Truck schedule for the month) music, and drawing. Combine this with a visit to the nearby Seattle Aquarium if you are with kids, or just enjoy the sun, views, and art with a long stroll while soaking in the natural beauty of the Northwest combined with SAM's sculpture garden's quirky humor... and the scintillating beauty of the glass wall, which never fails to fascinate. If you are out and about without kids, don't fail to stop by Pike Place Market on your way home to score one of the amazing $10 bouquets that would be twice as much in your local store and lasts twice as long! Or do some browsing in the many home design stores along Western Ave, which will also give you a chance to check out the progress being made on the Aqueduct construction (yes, parking is a little weird down there at the moment due to the construction, but not bad, for the summer crunch!). And there's always SAM itself, the Seattle Art Museum, with it's signature cafe Taste, starring executive chef Craig Hetherington with an innovative summer menu based on local farm products. (Here's a taste...of the lunch menu!)
Due to the great weather and plentiful summer events, it might be hard to concentrate on your real estate search, but let me just add a footnote, don't wait too long! We are seeing multiple offers for homes in the whole area now,certainly it's common this summer in Seattle.
This situation is stimulated by the "low inventory" which means a low supply of homes on the market, and historically low financing available.
We are out and about showing and finding our clients the best deals, so don't hesitate to get in touch for a list of
The new listings (including REOs) in Belltown, Magnolia, Queen Anne, Fremont, Wallingford, Phinney Ridge, Eastlake, Westlake, Ballard, the Highlands, Richmond Beach, Lake Forest Park, the U District, Ravenna, Wedgwood, Laurelhurst, Bryant, Sand Point, Madison Park, Madison Valley, Capitol Hill, Montlake, Madrona, Mt.
