Ken Balsley has a blog at kenbalsley.com where he covers a wide range of topics regarding our area. His blog expresses issues, happenings, and his opinion on a variety of subjects.
Balsley wrote an article called, “Lacey Sign Ordinance comes under fire… again,” where he brings to light an issue the Lacey City Council needs to address.
The blog written on Jim Sweat’s Blog, called, “Zillow Makes It Easier to Scam Homeowners,” makes a relevant argument regarding how easy public information should be to obtain.
I’ve read a few of Sweat’s articles on his blog and I find his perspective to be pro consumer. All real estate professionals should be advocates to protect the consumer and in this case homeowner’s.
The blog, Mortgage Info by Michelle Wickett, is informative, relevant, and up to date information about what is happening in the economy and how that impacts the mortgage industry as well as other markets.
This weeks forecast focuses on the new reports being published regarding the economy and when they will be released. The blog goes on to explain what those reports mean and how they impact the mortgage industry and the housing market. I found it educational, understandable, and to the point. Very interesting read!

According to Professional Home Staging Blog Yellow is supposed to be in for 2013. I’m excited since this is one of my favorite colors. Move over drab and dreary taupe here comes yellow!
They also had some very good advice in the blog, “Staging Tips for a Successful Sale.”
This blog has a little something for everyone.
Since my first article is going to be about home staging I thought I would take a look at some of the home staging blogs out there. I came across Staged Homes Blog which is mailing directed at home staging professionals, however, there are some good blogs directed at the home owner. This blog, “Consider Staged Homes for your Next Purchase,” by guest blogger Megan Cates was interesting as it is directed more at the home buyer than either the staging professional or the home seller.
There is lots of information for people thinking about becoming a home staging professional as well as updated information for current home staging professionals on the main blog. I was a little disappointed as I expected to see more information about why to stage.
The blog written by the guest blogger was unusual as typically articles on home staging are not directed towards the home buyers. Although, a home seller reading this blog would gain important information too.
The article “For-sale Inventory Only Half of 2006 Level,” written by Steve Cook on his blog, “Real Estate Economy Watch,” was an interesting article about the housing market and available for-sale inventory in the nation.
In many of the major metropolitan areas the available-for-sale housing inventory has decreased for the first time since the housing bubble popped. Many see this as a sign the housing market is stabilizing.
In my opinion the blog by Steve Cook is one to watch & read!
