Tacoma Appreciation – Truly Amazing! 
In the North Tacoma market, the Median Sales Price in Jan. 2016 was $297,500. Today, it stands at $425,000. That’s an increase of 42.9% in the last 3 years. Wow! But not all areas are created equal when it comes to increases in their median sales price. Check out Old Town/Stadium District median sale prices. They increased from $429,000 in Jan 2016 to $658, 125 today. That’s an increase of 53.4%. And the Proctor area saw a 46.1% increase from $338,600 to $495,000 in the same time frame. Likewise, the Westgate area increased from $275,000 to $385,000, an increase of 40%. However, the rate of increase seems to be slowing everywhere…. but …. Old Town/Stadium District, which saw a year over year increase of 14.5%. In 2019, the Old Town/Stadium area increased more than twice Proctor, 6 times as much as the Westgate area and 6 times as much as No Tacoma as a whole.

Prepare for a Less Stressful Move

A move is often considered a stressful life event. As professional organizers, my business partner and I frequently receive calls from clients who need to move out of their homes in a hurry and want help managing the process. They’re suddenly faced with an overwhelming number of tasks, such as scheduling home inspections, addressing deferred maintenance, decluttering, packing, dealing with donations, staging, garden cleanup and more. It’s enough to cause anyone anxiety.

If you’re expecting to move at some point — even if you don’t know exactly when that will be — there are a number of tasks you can do now to ease the burden later. Here are the top seven ways I recommend you prepare, whether you know your target move date or not.

12 Key Decorating Tips to Make Any Room Better

I hate to break it to you, but designers don’t follow a secret rule book. There are no hard and fast laws governing what we do. We are creative types by nature and love to imagine, dream and explore, following our intuition. That said, there are some rough principles that guide us to ensure a great result every time. They are just tried and true things that work. And these aren’t tricks or skills that take years to master. Anyone can do them from day one. Consider this a foundation for developing your own quirky, creative, rule-breaking intuition.
