Speaking for both Libby and myself (Maja), I have to say our posts have been a bit spotty the last few weeks, and for good reason; we’ve been incredibly busy. The real estate market on Mercer Island, and Bellevue are on the upswing, and with fantastic interest rates right now, inventory is dwindling, and prices are increasing modestly. The Builders are scrambling like mad to keep up with the demand. For you first time home buyers, it’s actually less expensive to purchase than it is to rent for the same type of property.
As far as weekend happenings: This is the biggest weekend of the summer for Seattleites and Eastsiders; even bigger than the 4th of July … it’s Seafair weekend. Kicking off with the Seafair Pirates landing at Alki several weeks ago, and the Torchlight Parade last weekend; this week the Blue Angels have been thundering through the sky’s (for the last few days), and leading up to the hydroplane races this Saturday and Sunday. Looks like we are actually going to have some warm weather for the hydroplane races this year too!
I always get a chill when I hear those jet engines roaring overhead (love it). It may be goofy (yes, it’s goofy), but I have the Top Gun DVD, and I like to listen to just the first few minutes of the movie; with the jet engines firing up, and leading into “Highway to the danger zone” theme song.
