Creating Sanctuary: How to Make a Smooth Transition in a New Area Quickly After Moving

 

Moving to a new or unfamiliar area can be exciting, but it’s also trying. Not having your usual haunts, as well as not feeling completely comfortable in your new house, can make it hard to relax. However, there are tricks to making your new space feel more like home.

 

Adjusting to a New Community

 

The first thing you do after settling in is to go out and meet your neighbors. Be prepared with some questions, both about your neighbors and the local area.

Help us Brighten a Child's Life!

For the 14th year, The Cascade Team is once again hosting Project Crayon Drive this April! For the young who find themselves at Seattle Children’s Hospital, sometimes the simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors. Yet, something as simple as crayons often goes overlooked. Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, but each child only gets a couple to use.

And that’s where The Cascade Team — in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Guild Association and several area merchants — comes in. Throughout the month of April, agents from The

The Seattle City Council votes today on whether to allow taller buildings and denser construction in 27 Seattle neighborhoods while adopting new requirements for developers to help create affordable housing.

But if it passes the vote, exactly which neighborhoods are being impacted and how? Well, the short answer is it's complicated. Many different zones and many different areas in each zone are impacted differently. There's a lot to sort out.

However, there is a website that the city provided that has that information on an interactive GIS map. You can see on the map which areas are in the plan, down to the block. You can also zoom in and click on certain areas to see the detail of the plan for that specific area. You can even enter in your address

Selling your home these days isn’t as simple as it used to be. With the explosion of real estate marketing on the Internet, prospective buyers can do their initial home shopping online. While this means that your listed property will be viewed by more prospective customers, it also means that many other properties will also be showcased, making for a much more competitive market.

While sales in the existing home market are expected to take a tick up early in 2019, there is a lot of concern about raising interest rates and economic uncertainty in the future. We are also looking for increasing inventory levels to start as early as March of this year with predictions of the greatest amount of housing inventory to hit the market in five years by May.

With so many new buildings being constructed in both our neighborhood and the city as a whole, the City of Seattle’s Design Review program is exploring ways to make it easier for the public to learn more about projects planned for their neighborhood, and to make it easier to provide input on the design of these projects.

The City of Seattle’s Design Review program reviews private developments in neighborhoods throughout Seattle, including multifamily structures and commercial buildings.

The mission of the Design Review program is to foster design excellence, provide a forum for the public to weigh in on projects planned for their neighborhood, and to provide flexibility, when appropriate, in how land use code requirements are applied.
