Burien Seen

Around Burien with Teanna Gentry

Buying or selling a home? Get professional help

What a crazy market we are living in! The housing market that is. This week I was reading the Seattle Magazine and saw our little town of Burien was featured as a "Place to Live" in Washington. How cool! And this article just reaffirms what we are all seeing. Everyone is moving to Westside Seattle. Homes are getting 10-20 offers, selling in hours, and people are even paying in cold hard cash just to snag their prized house. From what I am hearing, it's not going to get any better.

As any buyer or seller knows, home inspection is a part of the process when it comes to the sale process. Thank goodness for people like Matthew Irvine, who is the owner of Stellar Home Inspection. This is a very new business for Matt, but he is no stranger to our town. He is a local resident and has lived here for most of his 48 years. I sat down with Matt, and he told me a little bit more about what his business is all about. He said, "I am a certified licensed insured residential home inspector. I do home inspections for real estate transactions. For buyers, agents and I also perform pre listing Inspections for sellers. I am a member of Internachi the largest association of inspectors in the U.S. I strive for excellence and constantly push myself to keep up with continued education in this industry. I want to give my client peace of mind during this extremely important decision. Stellar Home Inspection's motto is, "Done once, Done right." For more information check out his website at: Https://Stellarhomeinspection.com or email him at: Mat@stellarhomeinspection.com. Thanks for sharing Matt!

After all the stress the home buying process can cause, I know what I would want. Some body TLC and a good workout! Stress and lack of movement are not good for our bodies, so I am glad places like, Life in Balance Physical Therapy are close by. I sat down with one of their Doctors, Elise and asked her several questions about what they can offer.

Dr. Nelson has been working in our West Seattle clinic and is now also seeing patients at our Burien clinic on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons!
