Summer in the Northwest is really great. We are all excited and rush to get outside without having to wear fleece or socks with your sandals. (No, I don’t wear socks with sandals, ever!) We try to cram in as many outdoor activities and barbeques as we can into those few short weeks of warm dry weather. We also tend to put off indoor activities in the summer time because that shiny orb in the sky keeps drawing us out the door.
This year many people in our area just cannot do that. They will have to spend some time dealing with the solutions for their underwater house. Those that put this on the back burner until the weather turns could be setting themselves up for financial failure. Our experience in helping underwater homeowners says that dealing with this early on will make your summer much more enjoyable.
Why is this so important right now?
We heard lots of predictions from the “experts” and the sales groups that promote housing tell us that the spring buying/selling season will propel the housing market forward. Now that the numbers show it did not happen, those experts are walking back their predictions of a spring recovery. If you read between the lines, they are telling us that this housing market is on its last legs. If you were a bit skeptical of their predictions in the first place, now you know that you were right all along.
If you owe more on your house than it is worth, this is not good news for you. If you thought you were going to just stick it out until your house values recovered so you could sell it, you are now in the only window you are going to get for many years. If this is not enough for you, you will have to look for other solutions. Don’t beat yourself up. There are over 400,000 people in Western Washington alone that are in the same boat that you are.
So now what do you do?
