PERSPECTIVES A LETTER FROM WINDERMERE

OPEN HOUSES Our family was recently debating the merits of getting the news via print or online. Some of us still prefer reading the newspaper the old fashioned way, while others like the convenience of seeing it on their phone or tablet. Much like newspapers, real estate has had to evolve to meet the high-tech demands of our clients, yet there are still some things technology has not changed. What hasn’t changed? The time-honored tradition of Sunday open houses. What has changed is how buyers find out about open houses and search for homes. Once upon a time, the only way buyers knew which homes were for sale was through a real estate agent or yard sign. And open houses

GEOFF WOOD CEO · Windermere Services

JILL JACOBI WOOD President · Windermere Services

were posted in the classified section of the local newspaper. Nowadays, newspapers play a far lesser role because there is so much information available online, including interior and exterior photos of properties, but buyers must still look to their agent and open houses in order to physically see inside a home. From the dawn of real estate, open houses have been a convenient, lowpressure way for prospective buyers to look at homes without any strings attached. In fact, it wasn’t that long ago that a typical buyer would take their local newspaper real estate ad, circle the homes they wanted to visit, load everyone in the car, and go on a Sunday afternoon drive. Times have changed in some respects, but buyers still love driving around, visiting open houses, and learning the nuances of a particular area. In our opinion, it’s probably the best way to get to know a neighborhood. It can take some buyers up to a year of researching the real estate market before getting serious about buying. That’s partly why open houses continue to be a very important part of the overall buying process—and we don’t foresee that changing anytime soon. To search for open houses in your area, go to Windermere.com.

Woodinville is located in the lush Sammamish Valley surrounded by rolling hills, lakes, and evergreens, yet with easy access to highways and mass-transit. It is also adjacent to a new technology corridor dominated by biotech, e-commerce, computer, internet, and other high-tech companies.

2 | R E A L E STAT E Past planning demanded properties be at least 3/4 acres, giving Woodinville neighborhoods a spacious feeling. Locals call it “country living, city style” because they enjoy living in wide open spaces only 20 minutes from Seattle. In September, the median sales price for single-family homes in Woodinville was $495,000.

HIGHLANDS

Steeped in history, The Highlands is a private residential community in Northwest Seattle overlooking the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.

1 | H I STO RY The Highlands’ 498 acres were designed by the world-renowned Olmsted Brothers in 1907 to take advantage of the woodland setting. In addition to around 100 homes, the community features walking trails, play fields, tennis courts, a pool and wading pool, a preschool, and private beach access. The nondenominational Florence Henry Memorial Chapel (shown left) was designed by W. Marberry Somerville, and hosts many community events.

For many who call The Highlands home, living in the neighborhood is like stepping back in time. There is a unique sense of community— neighbors know each other well, and gather together to socialize multiple times a year. Parents with young children enjoy the multigenerational aspect of the neighborhood, with older residents welcoming interaction with the community’s youngest members.

3 | ACC E SS I B I L I T Y THE HIGHLANDS HOME SALES YTD

Located 11.9 miles north of downtown Seattle, residents appreciate the community’s privacy and 24-hour security, as well as being able to zip downtown in only 20 minutes.

COM M U NIT Y PROFILE Located 36 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, Park City is a picturesque resort town that offers access to more than 8,800 acres of snow, making it one of the most soughtafter destinations in the world for outdoor recreation.

1 | H I STO RY Park City has a rich and storied past: it began as a raucous mining town, nearly faded into history as a ghost town, and then re-invented itself as a ski town that is now host to events such as the Winter Olympics and the Sundance Film Festival.
