Setting Goals in Real Estate

I feel like with anything in life, you should set goals, whether that’s to eat healthier, take up more hobbies, read more, watch TV less, or whatever it is. Maybe that’s just how my mind is wired.

But when Mitch and I started working together in real estate, we mutually set a goal to average at least 2 deals a month. And this month, we’ve finally reached that goal by doing 49 deals over a 24 month period.

We couldn’t have done any of this without our friends and clients. So thank you to everyone who has trusted us with your real estate needs.

Of course, now that just means we need to set new goals. A friend of mine who goes by the name “Henry” who I look up to has done over 70 transactions during the same period. That’s basically an average of 3 per month. So, challenge accepted.

The market is a little bit slower now than it was at the beginning of summer, so we’re hoping it leads to more opportunities for buyers. I guess we’ll find out!

Gainsborough Commons in Renton

Still Available!

Asking $229,000 | 2 bedrooms | 1.5 bathrooms | 1004 square feet | Renton WA 98055

Take this opportunity to snatch this condo unit up, located in the Gainsborough Commons community in Renton.

Why We Love This Listing: There’s a lot of options with this listing. Purchase it as a first home, or as an investment property. The cashflow as a rental would be better than most investment opportunities in King County. The complex features a club house, exercise room, and outdoor pool, which are typically things you’d have to pay for in a gym membership. The best part is that there’s no rental cap, so if you live there, outgrow it, and want to rent it out in the future, you will have that option. If you’re in the market for a condo, let us know! -Jin

Tanglewood Listing in Klahanie

Just Listed!

Asking $349,000 | 2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 875 square feet | Issaquah, WA 98027

Mitch and I are proud to announce the newest listing in the Tanglewood Condominium community in Klahanie.

Why we love this listing; It has always been a quiet community with good amenities. It’s ideal for small families with children, especially with Challenger Elementary School right across the street. The community itself features a club house, pool, sport court and children’s play area. Plus it’s relatively flat (something that can be hard to find in Issaquah) which means you can ride bikes, walk, run, skate or do other activities without dealing with too many hills. Hiking and mountain biking are all within minutes, and skiing is under an hour away (Summit at Snoqualmie). It’s great for someone with an active lifestyle. The unit itself has a brand new range and interior paint, and the rest of the appliances are newer as well. -Jin
