 Head Tax Page R2

Getting Your Home’s Drop Zone in Order By Kirsten Conner, Kirsten Conner Interior Design, Photos by WH Earle Photography Is your Drop Zone in order? The drop zone is the area in a home’s entryway used to store coats, shoes, keys, mail and bags of items just brought from the car or that need to go back in the car. It serves the function of a coat closet and … a place to “drop things” quickly. For a busy family, this area can become congested with piles of items very quickly and not provide adequate function. Drop zones are usually found in the main entry into the home and need to be functional, because in many homes, this area is the first part of the home a guest encounters. Therefore, it’s an important visual part of the home: it communicates the home’s decor style, color preference up front, and is an immediate window into the inhabitant’s lifestyle. Life gets busy and, sometimes, a mess is hard to control. Our homes usually do not look straight out of a design magazine but there are steps to take to make your drop zone functional and beautiful and, most importantly, a reflection of your aesthetic and a welcoming space. Looking at this space as a design problem is a good approach. First, think about functions that happen in your drop zone. Do you need a place for keys and mail and things to immediately recycle? Do you need a place to store high-use items for your kids like backpacks and sports equipment? How many shoes do you need to  Drop Zone Page R4

Queen Anne Home Sales (Low to High)

 Head Tax, from Page R1 both corporations and residents out of the city, corporations established offices just outside of San Francisco. The influx of investment in outlying areas didn’t slow real estate values or demand within the city. Instead it rejuvenated areas like Oakland and bolstered the overall Bay Area’s growth. Seattle’s outlying areas are experiencing some of the same impacts. Over the past 5 years, the national trend and desire for walk-able, urban neighborhoods with an in-city lifestyle have dramatically overshadowed the growth and desire for suburban living – especially amongst millenials. Tech firms including Amazon, Google, and Facebook have a median employee age of 30 years old or younger. Thus over half of their employees fall firmly within the millennial age category. Real estate data shows this segment of the population has a strong preference for urban living. This trend isn’t just true of the tech sector; new housing construction in rural areas hit

at an all time industrialized low! Neighborhoods with an attractive walk-able retail district like Queen Anne Avenue remain significantly more desirable to buyers than suburban areas outside of the city. Many of our millennial clients who reside on Queen Anne, Magnolia, and downtown are employed on the eastside by Microsoft, area hospitals, and other employers. It’s easy to look at companies like Amazon, Nordstrom, and Starbucks as the only major players in town, but small and midsized business growth in Seattle is also among the nation’s strongest. Even with the city’s heightened property and rental values, Seattle ranks #7 nationally for entrepreneurs and start-ups. We believe the strength of the city and surrounding area’s economy – to include large, midsized, and small companies - and the desirability of walk-able urban neighborhoods will correlate to a persistently hot real estate market.

Top Summer Laundry Tips for Fresher, Cleaner Clothes (StatePoint) From grassy picnics to sweaty soccer games to saucy cookouts -- clothes can be particularly vulnerable to all kinds of stains and odors during the warm weather months. Check out these tips for doing your laundry in a way that keeps clothes fresh and looking new as long as possible. • Understand the basics. Different stains require different cleaning agents, and unfortunately, there is no one single ingredient that cleans all kinds of stains well. For example, milk and grass stains require enzyme cleaners, while ink or wine stains require peroxides. Of course, clothes also need brighteners and detergents to come out looking their best. Understanding these basic principles can help you treat clothes more effectively. • Pre-treat stains. Stained clothing should be pre-treated with a

tough, multi-faceted solution. Rub in pre-treatment gently and wait three to five minutes. Just be careful not to allow the solution to dry on the fabric. Some garments will need a longer pre-treatment. If so, add the solution to water and soak the soiled clothing in a bucket before washing as usual. • Fight odor: Select products that keep laundry fresh longer. For example, Dryel has an Odor & Wrinkle Releaser that provides an extra boost of clean. • Extend the life of clothes. Pair a great detergent with a laundry booster that can tackle multiple types of stains. For example, Biz has more stain fighters than other brands, while also brightening clothes. Available in powder, liquid and liquid boosters, independent, third party tests have shown that Biz works 80 percent better than detergent alone.

• Read the tags. When in doubt, referencing tags for washing and drying directions can help you best maintain a garment’s color, brightness and shape. More fresh laun-

“Ask Sam”

AFTER

Question: What advice can you give a potential homebuyer in Seattle given that the values are at an all time high? Should you consider renting for now until the market trends lower? Answer: With demand continuing to outpace supply, values are not likely to drop QUEEN ANNE any time soon. Unless an unexpected REAL ESTATE egress from Seattle occurs spurring an unexpected housing supply, prices will likely continue to increase. 2018 value growth predictions are significantly more modest than what we saw in 2017. However, even conservative estimates predict a 5-6% increase in Seattle real estate prices this year. On Queen Anne and Magnolia, the median residential sales price last month was $980,500. So even a very conservative 5% increase in values equates to nearly $50,000. Seattle continues to have one of the nation’s strongest economies amongst small, midsized, and large companies alike! Even with the rising prices, Seattle ranks in the top 10 cities for entrepreneurs and start-ups. So while prices have increased as a function of demand, the trend isn’t likely to reverse.

Sam Konswa

In addition, the combined effect of rising mortgage interest rates and the tax benefits of homeownership are additional reasons to purchase now rather than hope values go down. The Federal Reserve began incrementally raising interest rates this year. While rates remain low historically, on a $600,000 mortgage balance, a 1% increase in the interest rate equates to an approximately 10% higher mortgage payment each month. Thus, if mortgage rates increased from 4% to 5%, the affordability of the mortgage payment would decrease by 10%. The projected rate increases for 2018 are around 0.25% per quarter. Even seemingly modest rate increases will overshadow Seattle’s projected home value increases with regards to a monthly mortgage. Additionally, many Seattle households will continue to benefit from itemized deductions on their federal taxes – even with the new federal income tax law. Thus, homeownership affords many the opportunity to itemize both their property taxes and mortgage interest. This benefit alone provides a substantial homeownership incentive. Rental rates are also at an all time high! Rents may not be increasing as rapidly as home values due to the construction of additional rental units, but the tax benefits of home ownership, increases in mortgage rates, and continued growth projections for home values do not support waiting for Seattle’s market to cool off.

 Drop Zone, from Page R1 keep in your zone? Do you have a place for shopping bags? Next, prioritize the most immediate need in this space. Do you need more surfaces to place items or are you seeking out of sight storage solutions? Consider removing all items from this space, including furniture, and carefully considering what is needed and truly desired. The eye is drawn to contrast, so the more clutter, the more chaotic this space may feel. Finally, consider a focal point for the eye to rest on, maybe a treasured part of your family’s décor or something that visually communicates the style of your house. A mirror, colorful rug, console table, large-scale ceiling-hung pendant light or table can each serve as a functional focal point for your space. These items can also add an interesting accent and direct eyes away from all the shoes and coats. Key items interior designers use in their practice include console tables, trays, baskets and bins. It’s important that these items function as an integrated design. Online retail sources offer “coat tree” forms if just a place to stash shoes and coats is needed. If a more involved storage system is needed, use a closet organizer company who can create a custom built-in system. An interior designer can help with planning and will work directly with a closet designer. A case study example and Before and After photos

of a family of four in Seattle. As a formally trained Residential Interior Designer I approached this project used vertical space to hang coats above an inviting bench but stored shoes under the bench, allocating a cubby and specific places for shoes. I sent a concept plan to my fellow Master Builder Remodeler Council member Organized Spaces and they created a built-in system to my specification. We better utilized vertical space but putting a cabinet that was customized to items that needed to be stored. Doors kept the visual clutter away. We added color with a durable bench, used to sit and put on shoes in a stain repellant fabric. We kept a treasured art mirror and added a tray for key storage. Hats were a high use item to this family and so I used vertical space to hide these. The result was a welcoming, beautiful, and functional space. It may be called the drop zone, but your guests will know this space as an amazing first impression of your well put-together home!

Simple Steps for Smart Storage and Easy Moves (StatePoint) Did you know 66 percent of Americans have difficulty finding things in household storage? And more than half are frustrated by the task. Instead of stressing, consider using smart, techbased storage solutions, like the Duck Pack & Track app-based labeling system to keep things organized. It uses a smartphone app and labels with unique QR codes to help you keep track of your boxes’ contents. Additional information is available at DuckPackAndTrack.com.

Serving Seattle for 35 Years!

Other things you can do to improve your storage skills? Turn stacks of paperwork into digital files by scanning them or snapping photos. Take advantage of vertical space by installing shelving and hooks. Also, some pieces of furniture, like ottomans, can pull double-duty as extra places to store books, photo albums, blankets, pillows and more. Don’t let your next move or seasonal cleaning be overly stressful. Smart solutions can keep you organized from start to finish.

Knowledgeable and Personable My partner and I were extremely satisfied working with Nicole Bailey. She took the time to really understand the house (location, size, price) we were looking for. She was knowledgeable about the frequently changing market and was always honest with us about expectations and reality in affording a home. She was very responsive to inquires and was on top of all the new listings in the areas of our liking.

Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, a member of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties and located in Bellevue, offers friendly, knowledgeable product experts and the latest selection of bath, kitchen, appliance and lighting products to help make your dream home a reality. Whether remodeling an entire room or looking to add a single upgrade, it’s important to select the best products that will last for years to come. One of the best investments you can make is in your appliances. With a vast array of choices on the market today, you’ll want to carefully consider your options and select appliances that provide the features and style you want at a price that fits your budget. Connected or “smart” appliances are becoming more popular and userfriendly, and offer features that simplify routine chores like cooking, cleaning and doing laundry. From digital readouts to wireless connectivity, today’s innovations give you more smart choices than ever before. Consider the following tech-enhanced appliances for your next upgrade. OVENS A connected oven allows you to control functionality using a smartphone and customize your cooking experience with helpful tips and information. Preheat your oven on the go using your mobile device or access gourmet guides that direct meal preparation, including desired doneness and what type of pan to use. Another tech innovation to consider when selecting an oven is convection. Convection cooking lets you cook multiple items at the same time without sacrificing consistent quality. For example, multiple racks of cookies will bake evenly, no matter their placement in the oven. REFRIGERATION With a connected refrigerator, you can verbally instruct the fridge to fill the ice machine and raise or lower the temperature. Additionally, many fridges can now self-diagnose issues and alert you which replacement part to order or the precise error message to give the technician so they can diagnose the error. HANDS-FREE FAUCET CONTROL Reduce the spread of germs and messes with hands-free and single touch faucets. Not sacrificing style or functionality, these faucets come with all the features of a traditional faucet but will also include a unique sensor and water flow mechanism. Simply touching any part of the faucet or placing objects directly under the faucet head turns the flow of water on and off.

WASHERS AND DRYERS Use an app to stay up to date during each step in the laundry process thanks to notifications from connected washers and dryers. Some washers are equipped to send digital reminders to start and stop wash cycles based on fabric care needs. If no one is available to unload the dryer, you can receive a smartphone alert to activate a wrinkle shield function. For the ultimate in connectivity and energy savings, some units offer technology that pairs a connected washer and dryer with a home monitoring device. You are then able to automatically activate or delay the start of a cycle based on your device’s ability to recognize when you are home or away. From cooking up culinary creations to removing tough stains, appliance purchases are an investment in productivity. Don’t simply replace an appliance, select an option that is high-tech, faster and efficient enough to meet your needs for years to come. Learn more about how to integrate technology and connected appliances into your home by visiting your local showroom and requesting an appointment with a knowledgeable appliance expert.
