Whidbey Island sunrises can be as inspiring and dramatic as the sunsets.
Seen here from Pheasant Farm Acres community, looking East to the Cascades over Camano Island, the morning sky is glorious.
Photographed by a wonderful homeowner whose waterfront home sold in just two months, despite all the havoc in the real estate market, this view promises peace and reassurance in the beauty of creation. The new owner, an avid sailor and outdoorsman, was drawn to this scenery and will certainly be first to know when the day looks auspicious to head out for a sail.
Thanks to my great clients for starting off 2010 with such a lovely transaction. Everyone was trusting, appreciative, kind and generous with one another. Who says the market is beastly when there are homes and people like this to work with!
Owning a home on Whidbey Island is a dream come true for many people, and with great interest rates, very good buys in long supply, many folks are choosing to start living Island life now.
Surely the newly extended and expanded homebuyer's credit helps a bit... the new $6500 credit for move-up or relocating buyers who have owned their home for the previous 5 years is a factor for some...but I think it is more about price and quality of homes on the market now.
This weekend has been superb, if a bit chilly. Can hardly wait for the Alasdair Fraser/Natalie Hass concert at Ft. Casey's quaint auditorium tomorrow. Amazing that we can host a Scottish fiddle workshop with a duo that has performed world-wide as well as at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.
Hope to see you soon on Front Street!
