There are endless 239 1956 that shout out that we are in for a major cor- rection or slow down in real estate appreciation. It would appear that a lot of this gloom and doom is self- fulfilling. Real estate markets are highly impacted by consumer confidence, and once the word gets out that a bubble might be busting, the "herd mentality" takes over and it happens. Regardless of how accurate these predictions are, 2006 is going to be a very interest- ing year to watch unfold. If you are a buyer or a seller in this real estate market, these changes could easily influ- ence your timing or ultimate decision. Rising interest rates will continue to impact the af- fordability of homes, and the results of such a slow down could ripple across the entire economy. Construction jobs, the financial service industry, and real estate professionals will be but a few of the hard- est hit areas. A study out of UCLA this week indicated a potential loss of 800,000 jobs in these industries alone.

As much as the speculators need to be slowed down in such markets as South Flori- da or Las Vegas, the need to keep us moving forward is lifestyles through the equity in their homes. The basics that fueled this highly lucra- tive investment of real estate are still very much in place. Take a deep breath; don't panic. It may turn out that these winds of change just might be a breeze blowing us in the right direction. High-quality homes in half the time The popularity of fac- tory-built housing in America is on the rise. In fact, according to the Man- ufactured Housing Insti- tute, there are 22.5 million people living in 10 million factory-built homes across the country today. But what exactly does factory-built mean? A fac- tory-built home is quite simply a home that is built indoors and then trans- ported to the homeowner's lot. These homes are pre- cision built with the same or higher quality materi- als as in traditional "site built" homes. And because the homes are built in a controlled environment, unforeseen weather delays and weather damage are eliminated. The result is a high-quality home con- structed in half the time. ~E Q.~.ITY, PAGE 13 ~A new 1867 as! home nestled In a wooded area of South Everett featuring 4 bedrooms ~tbe room in the mo~ floor could be a den/affk:e) 3 bathrooms, gas fireplace, patio, granite on ~ hen island, ceram- ic file on kitchen ounlerlops, red eak floor with rnople cabinels in kit(hen, soaking lub and shower with tile in rmstef bolh and wall to wall carpet Great location close to shopp~j, schools, kS, ~ Frank Foster (425) 750-4801 99 and bus line.
