Low Inventory | Brevity Jewelry | Staple & Fancy

LOW INVENTORY MEANS GETTING INVENTIVE...

Two off-market sales in January

Interest rates are still extremely low, and buyers are very ready to pull the trigger on that new home. One major problem, however, is the sheer lack of homes to choose from. 

Never one to take no for an answer, I found two off-market properties for two sets of clients in January, that now are under contract. 

A low-inventory market may just require some creativity and innovation. Sometimes the market is created for us, and sometimes we're fortunate to be able to create the market for ourselves.

Bravo, Ethan Stowell. I am so happy to have had the experience of Staple & Fancy a couple of times now. On Ballard Ave. in a hip ambiance; rough-sawn lumber, exposed brick and Edison bulbs, is the best food I've eaten in a long time. 

Staple & Fancy has an incredible chef's menu that is to die for. If you're looking for a fun place to eat where the food and atmosphere are going to be killer, this is it.
