Today we were joined by the always lovely and amazing Vanessa Rimkus with Fairway Mortgage in Bellevue.

Vanessa and her husband, Sean, live in Snoqualmie Ridge with their two adorable boys. We talked schools, community, and more. The Ridge, as the locals call it, is definitely a fun place to live with a true sense of community. And if you are a golfer, it doesn’t get any better. Sean is a regular at the Club at Snoqualmie Ridge.

We also had a great chat about mortgages, where we think the market is going, and 2 of the most popular questions that Buyers have these days:

  1. Is now the right time to buy?
  2. Can I still buy if I don’t have 20% to put down?

Here is a great chart that Vanessa referred to on the show that illustrated the costs of waiting if interest rates go up and the prices continue to appreciate the way they have been.
