Windermere Foundation Quarterly Report Q3 2015


Greeetings from the Windermere Foundation,


Many people in our communities struggle each day to have their most basic needs met. But thanks to contributions from Windermere owners, agents, staff and our community partners, the Windermere Foundation has been able to donate $1,359,000 so far this year to organizations that provide services to low-income and homeless families throughout the Western U.S.


Windermere offices throughout the Western U.S. partner with organizations in their local communities to help with fundraising and support of their programs. One such organization is Tree House in Tacoma, Washington, which welcomes families who need a place to stay while a loved one is in the hospital. Tacoma-based Windermere Professional Partners has been a supporter of Tree House since 2007 when the organization was merely a concept. Since then, they have donated nearly $75,000 through the Windermere Foundation to help make Tree House the incredible organization that it is today. Over the years, the Windermere team has filled the Tree House pantry shelves with non-perishable food. They were also the very first organization to cook a hot meal for the families that stay at Tree House—families like Will and Carmenita. Here is their story:


New parents, Will and Carmenita, are among many of the Tree House guests. They welcomed their baby boy William at 25 weeks, which was extremely premature. Since his birth, baby William has had multiple surgeries to repair a collapsed lung, a brain bleed, and a hernia. He recently received a shunt to help relieve the pressure put on his brain. In the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Tacoma General Hospital, progress is often incremental, with setbacks that could occur at a moment’s notice. It is critical that parents and loved ones stay close by these vulnerable babies. Recognizing the need for families to be near their loved ones in a time of serious illness, MultiCare offers families a place to stay at Tree House. Carmenita and Will have been able to stay at Tree House since William’s birth.


As Carmenita recently expressed, “We’re both very thankful for everything the Tree House has done for us. To be able to be so close and being able to see William whenever we want has meant so much. All of the families and staff have been great; it’s nice to know that we are not alone and that other people do care. The Tree House has really felt like a home away from home for us.”


“We are big fans of Windermere Professional Partners and the Windermere Foundation,” says Cindy Niemi from MultiCare. “As a side note, while they were doing all this for Tree House, they sponsored five of our seven Rock the Foundation events to help with critical care needs at Tacoma General and Allenmore Hospitals.”


Another organization that the Windermere Foundation supports is the Children’s Justice Center (CJC) in Vancouver, Washington, which is one of 600 nationally accredited Children’s Advocacy Centers in the U.S. that provide a safe and supportive place for child victims of crime and their non-offending family members. The center’s multidisciplinary professional team comes together from across a network of both public and private agencies to provide a comprehensive and skillful response that includes safety, justice, healing and support for child crime victims.


The Windermere Stellar offices in Vancouver  have supported the Children’s Justice Center over the years by hosting an annual auction on their behalf. From 2012 through 2014, they have raised and donated a total of $163,300. At this year’s auction in October, they raised an estimated $125,000 which will help the CJC multidisciplinary team provide more for the children they serve. The monies raised will help fund an expansion of the center’s family outreach and support program.


“I am very impressed with the talent, heart and professionalism of our local Windermere group. Over the years, it shows how well they have done to improve their fundraising. They are a winning team for sure.” ~ Mary Blanchette, E.D., Children's Justice Center


These are just a couple of examples of how Windermere offices donate their time and money through the Windermere Foundation to support local non-profit organizations in their community. If you’d like to help us continue to support these and other programs, please click on the Donate button.


Thank you to everyone who supports the Windermere Foundation. Your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of many families in our local communities.

November Maintenance Guide

This article originally appeared on

Written by Anne Reagan


November is full of autumnal celebrations, falling leaves and changing weather. For some regions, snow might already falling and winter wind storms threatening to knock out power. This is the right time of year to keep preparing your home for winter like purchasing snow supplies, testing your generator and keeping the gutters clear of leaves. Be sure to keep your home safe this fall by keeping up with your weekend projects and to-dos.


Inside the home

Call and schedule a plumber: The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day for plumbers due to garbage disposal issues, clogged drains, dishwasher problems and toilet troubles. Do yourself a favor and schedule a plumber to come in and fix issues prior to the busy holiday.

Clean dryer vents and duct system: Thoroughly blowing out the dryer duct system is important to help make your appliance function better as well as reduce the risk of dryer fires. The incidences of this type of fire increases in the winter months so get this task done this month.

Test smoke alarms: Thanksgiving turkey dinners and distraction from entertaining guests mean more accidental cooking fires. Add to this the assortment of unattended candles and fires in the fireplace and you have a recipe for danger. Stock up on fire extinguishers and check the batteries in your alarms.

Get winter storm ready: November wind storms can easily knock out power. Check and replace the batteries in your flashlights and place them in easy-to-find areas of the home and service your backup generator system. While you’re at it, stock up on extra water and canned goods just in case.

Call and schedule a heating service pro: Make sure your heating unit is in good working order and change the filters every 3 months.

Add appropriate leftovers to the compost bin: Big meal preparations can often lead to valuable compost material. Check our composting tips here.


Outside the home

Purchase snow removal equipment: This is a great month to stock up on de-icers, shovels and other snow and ice equipment. If you regularly use a snow blower, be sure you have it serviced before the snow falls.

Call and schedule a gutter cleaner: November brings downed leaves, needles and branches which can quickly clog your gutters and downspouts. Protect your roof and foundation by having clear gutter drains. And make sure you use common sense when climbing your ladder – hire a pro if you can’t do this yourself.

Stock up on firewood: If your home has a wood-burning fireplace, make sure you have plenty of seasoned wood. Seasoned wood is wood that has been dry for at least a year. Unseasoned wood can produce more smoke or creosote buildup within the chimney.See our video about how to build the best fire in just 60 seconds.

Keep lawn clear of leaves: Continue to rake leaves and remove heavy, fallen branches off of the lawn this month as wet leaves can suffocate the grass blades. Rake leaves and compost them or use them as mulch around shrubs and bushes in the yard.

A New Listing, To Die For

If you dream of a home with character, do we have a gem for you! This new-to-market charmer is located in an isolated part of town and has a view to die for. The dead silent surroundings will give you all the privacy you need. Six bedrooms is ample space for a growing family, or plenty of room for unexpected house guests. If you happen to live alone, don’t worry, there have been reports of voices in the night, so there’s always someone to talk to.



Recent upgrades include a new roof, although further soundproofing may be needed to contain the occasional screams and clanging chains. This home comes with a full arsenal of security provisions, including trap doors, secret passageways, and a soundproof panic room. If you love to cook, the kitchen comes equipped with its own walk in freezer and meat hooks for artisan style butchery. Bone-appetite! Don’t worry about furnishing this period home, all the furniture is included, as the family that lived here before could not take their possessions to the next world. The grounds are extensive and include an ancient burial ground.



Consult your closest medium to schedule an appointment.  Act fast; people are dying to get in this place. Open house on October 31, dusk to dawn.



5 Things to Consider if You’re Behind on Your Mortgage

Financial setbacks like the loss of a job or large medical bills can make it tough to make ends meet. If you find yourself behind on your mortgage payments, it helps to be proactive.  It's also good to know that federal and local agencies, even banks, are working to help those who are behind on their mortgages from going into foreclosure.

If you are behind on your mortgage, here are 5 steps you can take.     


1)  Call your lender as soon as possible.

As uncomfortable as that call can be, the problem will not go away by avoiding your lender. If you are having trouble making your payments, the sooner you contact your lender, the more options you will have. Some homeowners postpone communicating with their lender for so long, that foreclosure becomes the only option.  Don't let that happen to you.


2) Talk to a housing counselor.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a list of approved nonprofit housing counselors, who will provide free counseling for homeowners who are behind on their mortgages. They'll go over options and suggest next steps. Call HUD at 888-995-4673 or visit the HUD site to find a counselor in your area.


3)  See if you can lower your mortgage payment.

You might be able to refinance or do a loan modification to make your monthly payment more affordable. There are a number of programs available depending on your circumstances. A HUD housing counselor or your lender can help you explore your options.


4)  Find out if you qualify for a short sale.

A short sale is an alternative to foreclosure when a homeowner needs to sell and can no longer afford to make mortgage payments. The lender agrees to accept less than the amount owed to pay off a loan, rather than going forward with a lengthy and costly foreclosure process.

Although every homeowner’s situation is unique, the basic criteria for qualifying for a short sale are:

  • You need to sell your home.
  • You owe more on your mortgage than your home is worth.
  • You have a personal financial hardship that will prevent you from making future payments. (Examples of hardship include loss of job, divorce, death of a spouse and medical emergency or illness.)

In most instances, a short sale makes more sense than foreclosure. In general, when you want to obtain a loan to purchase a property in the future, more opportunities will be available to you if you do a short sale. Find out more about how short sales work.


5) See if you qualify for cash incentives tied to a short sale.

Several programs offer cash incentives to homeowners to do a short sale in order to avoid foreclosure.

The federal government's Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program might provide $3,000 in relocation assistance to homeowners who do short sales. 

Lenders, including Chase and Bank of America, have paid significant cash incentives to encourage sellers to do a short sale and avoid foreclosure. In the past few months, we have had homeowners receive checks from their lender at closing in amounts that range up to $35,000. And these large incentives are not restricted to owners of high-end properties. The owner of a short sale property that recently sold for $164,000 received a check for $25,000. The checks are given for relocation assistance and can be used however the homeowner sees fit. There are no restrictions.

It’s important to note that the seller incentive is determined by the investor, so not every lender is paying incentives. However, if you are considering a short sale, it’s a good time to find out if you qualify.

Get Extra Cozy This Fall

It’s almost that time of year again; time for cuddles and hot cocoa by the fireplace. It’s also almost time to debate whether to trade in the heels and cocktails on a chilly Friday night for Netflix in bed. We’re going to make that decision a piece of cake for you. Plot twist: sweaters aren’t just for humans *gasp* they’re also for beds. Go get a cable knit blanket and let your lovely bed revel in the sweater weather with you. Next, definitely invest in a real down comforter because it really is that much better than a featherless comforter. You’ll feel even more luxurious than you already do if you skip the top sheet and go European style.

Once you’ve got the basics down, add a super fluffy rug right next to your bed so your feet have something soft to land on each morning. It’ll be like walking on clouds, which is a much nicer wake-up call than a cold floor. Next: lighting. No one feels über comfy if they’re being blinded by their bright overhead flight, so go out and find a pleasant lamp to put on your bedside table. If you’re into a fairy tale feel, you must string lights above your bed to add a twinkle of magic. Last but not least, pillows, pillows, pillows. Some say you shouldn’t do more than two on each side, we say the more the merrier. And just like that, voila; you’re very own Wonderland.

What You Need to Know about Real Estate Appraisals

Appraised value vs. market value

Appraisals are designed to protect buyers, sellers, and lending institutions. They provide a reliable, independent valuation of a tract of land and the structure on it, whether it’s a house or a skyscraper. Below, you will find information about the appraisal process, what goes into them, their benefits and some tips on how to help make an appraisal go smoothly and efficiently.

The appraised value of a property is what the bank thinks it’s worth, and that amount is determined by a professional, third-party appraiser. The appraiser’s valuation is based on a combination of comparative market sales and inspection of the property.

Market value, on the other hand, is what a buyer is willing to pay for a home or what homes of comparable value are selling for. A home’s appraised value and its market value are typically not the same. In fact, sometimes the appraised value is very different. An appraisal provides you with an invaluable reality check.

If you are in the process of setting the price of your home, you can gain some peace-of-mind by consulting an independent appraiser. Show him comparative values for your neighborhood, relevant documents, and give him a tour of your home, just as you would show it to a prospective buyer.

What information goes into an appraisal?

Professional appraisers consult a range of information sources, including multiple listing services, county tax assessor records, county courthouse records, and appraisal data records, in addition to talking to local real estate professionals. 

They also conduct an inspection. Typically an appraiser’s inspection focuses on:

  • The condition of the property and home, inside and out
  • The home’s layout and features
  • Home updates
  • Overall quality of construction
  • Estimate of the home’s square footage (the gross living area “GLA”; garages and unfinished basements are estimated separately)
  • Permanent fixtures (for example, in-ground pools, as opposed to above-ground pools)

After considering all such information, the appraiser arrives at three different dollar amounts - one for the value of the land, one for the value of the structure, and one for their combined value. In many cases, the land will be worth more than the structure.

One thing to bear in mind is that an appraisal is not a substitute for a home inspection. An appraiser does a cursory assessment of a house and property. For a more detailed inspection, consult with a home inspector and/or a specialist in the area of concern.

Who pays and how long does it take?

The buyer usually pays for the appraisal unless they have negotiated otherwise. Depending on the lender, the appraisal may be paid in advance or incorporated into the application fee; some are due on delivery and some are billed at closing. Typical costs range from $275-$600, but this can vary from region to region.

An inspection usually takes anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours, depending on the size and complexity of your property. In addition, the appraiser spends time pulling up county records for values of the houses around you. A full report comes to your loan officer, a real estate agent or lender within about a week.

If you are the seller, you won’t get a copy of an appraisal ordered by a buyer. Under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, however, the buyer has the right to get a copy of the appraisal, but they must request it. Typically the requested appraisal is provided at closing.

What if the appraisal is too low?

If you appraisal comes in too low it can be a problem. Usually the seller’s and the buyer’s real estate agents respond by looking for recent and pending sales of comparable homes. Sometimes this can influence the appraisal. If the final appraisal is well below what you have agreed to pay, you can renegotiate the contract or cancel it. 

Where do you find a qualified appraiser?

Your bank or lending institution will find and hire an appraiser; Federal regulatory guidelines do not allow borrowers to order and provide an appraisal to a bank for lending purposes. If you want an appraisal for your own personal reasons, and not to secure a mortgage or buy a homeowner’s insurance policy, you can do the hiring yourself. You can contact your lending institution and they can recommend qualified appraisers and you can choose one yourself or you can call your localWindermere Real Estate agent and they can make a recommendation for you. Once you have the name of some appraisers you can verify their status on the Federal Appraisal Subcommittee website:

Tips for hassle-free appraisals:

  • What can you do to make the appraisal process as smooth and efficient as possible? Make sure you provide your appraiser with the information he or she needs to get the job done. Get out your important documents and start checking off a list that includes the following:
  • A brief explanation of why you’re getting an appraisal
  • The date you’d like your appraisal to be completed
  • A copy of your deed, survey, purchase agreement, or other papers that pertain to the property
  • If you have a mortgage, your lender, the year you got your mortgage, the amount, the type of mortgage (FHA, VA, etc.), your interest rate, and any additional financing you have
  • A copy of your current real estate tax bill, statement of special assessments, balance owing and on what (for example, sewer, water)
  • Tell your appraiser if your property is listed for sale and if so, your asking price and listing agency
  • Any personal property that is included
  • If you’re selling an income-producing property, a breakdown of income and expenses for the last year or two and a copy of leases
  • A copy of the original house plans and specifications
  • A list of recent improvements and their costs
  • Any other information you feel may be relevant

By doing your homework, compiling the information your appraiser needs, and providing it at the beginning of the process, you can minimize unnecessary phone calls and delays. 

Homeowners Insurance: Protecting Your Home

In addition to providing shelter and comfort, our home is often our single greatest asset. And it’s important that we protect that precious investment. Most homeowners realize the importance of homeowners insurance in safeguarding the value of a home. However, what they may not know is that about two-thirds of all homeowners are under-insured. According to a national survey, the average homeowner has enough insurance to rebuild only about 80% of his or her house.

What a standard homeowners policy covers

A standard homeowner’s insurance policy typically covers your home, your belongings, injury or property damage to others, and living expenses if you are unable to live in your home temporarily because of an insured disaster.

The policy likely pays to repair or rebuild your home if it is damaged or destroyed by disasters, such as fire or lighting. Your belongings, such as furniture and clothing, are also insured against these types of disasters, as well as theft. Some risks, such as flooding or acts of war, are routinely excluded from homeowner policies.

Other coverage in a standard homeowner’s policy typically includes the legal costs for injury or property damage that you or family members, including your pets, cause to other people. For example, if someone is injured on your property and decides to sue, the insurance would cover the cost of defending you in court and any damages you may have to pay. Policies also provide medical coverage in the event someone other than your family is injured in your home.

If your home is seriously damaged and needs to be rebuilt, a standard policy will usually cover hotel bills, restaurant meals and other living expenses incurred while you are temporarily relocated.

How much insurance do you need?

Homeowners should review their policy each year to make sure they have sufficient coverage for their home. The three questions to ask yourself are:

·      Do I have enough insurance to protect my assets?

·      Do I have enough insurance to rebuild my home?

·      Do I have enough insurance to replace all my possessions?

Here’s some more information that will help you determine how much insurance is enough to meet your needs and ensure that your home will be sufficiently protected.

Protect your assets

Make sure you have enough liability insurance to protect your assets in case of a lawsuit due to injury or property damage. Most homeowner’s insurance policies provide a minimum of $100,000 worth of liability coverage. With the increasingly higher costs of litigation and monetary compensation, many homeowners now purchase $300,000 or more in liability protection. If that sounds like a lot, consider that the average dog bite claim is about $20,000. Talk with your insurance agent about the best coverage for your situation.

Rebuild your home

You need enough insurance to finance the cost of rebuilding your home at current construction costs, which vary by area. Don’t confuse the amount of coverage you need with the market value of your home. You’re not insuring the land your home is built on, which makes up a significant portion of the overall value of your property. In pricey markets such as San Francisco, land costs account for over 75 percent of a home’s value.

The average policy is designed to cover the cost of rebuilding your home using today’s standard building materials and techniques. If you have an unusual, historical or custom-built home, you may want to contact a specialty insurer to ensure that you have sufficient coverage to replicate any special architectural elements. Those with older homes should consider additions to the policy that pay the cost of rebuilding their home to meet new building codes.

Finally, if you’ve done any recent remodeling, make sure your insurance reflects the increased value of your home.

Remember that a standard policy does not pay for damage caused by a flood or earthquake. Special coverage is needed to protect against these incidents. Your insurance company can let you know if your area is flood or earthquake prone. The cost of coverage depends on your home’s location and corresponding risk.

Replacing your valuables

If something happens to your home, chances are the things inside will be damaged or destroyed as well. Your coverage depends on the type of policy you have. A cost value policy pays the cost to replace your belongings minus depreciation. A replacement cost policy reimburses you for the cost to replace the item.

There are limits on the losses that can be claimed for expensive items, such as artwork, jewelry, and collectables. You can get additional coverage for these types of items by purchasing supplemental premiums.

To determine if you have enough insurance, you need to have a good handle on the value of your personal items. Create a detailed home inventory file that keeps track of the items in your home and the cost to replace them.

Create a home inventory file

It takes time to inventory your possessions, but it’s time well spent. The little bit of extra preparation can also keep your mind at ease.  The best method for creating a home inventory list is to go through each room of your home and individually record the items of significant value.  Simple inventory lists are available online.  You can also sweep through each room with a video or digital camera and document each of your belongings. Your home inventory file should include the following items:

·      Item description and quantity

·      Manufacturer or brand name

·      Serial number or model number

·      Where the item was purchased

·      Receipt or other proof of purchase \Photocopies of any appraisals, along with the name and address of the appraiser

·      Date of purchase (or age)

·      Current value

·      Replacement cost

Pay special attention to highly valuable items such as electronics, artwork, jewelry, and collectibles.

Storing your home inventory list

Make sure your inventory list and images will be safe incase your home is damaged or destroyed. Store them in a safe deposit box, at the home of a friend or relative, or on an online Web storage site. Some insurance companies provide online storage for digital files. (Storing them on your home computer does you no good if your computer is stolen or damaged). Once you have an inventory file set up, be sure to update it as you make new purchases.

We invest a lot in our homes, so it’s important we take the necessary measures to safeguard it against financial and emotional loss in the wake of a disaster.

Golf Tournaments: A Tee-rific Fundraising Event

Why do we love golf tournaments so much? Maybe it’s because it gives us an opportunity to be in the outdoors while enjoying beautiful scenery. Or maybe it’s because it gives us a chance to be a part of a team and connect with others away from the office. And sometimes, it allows us to unleash our lighter-side by dressing up in fun outfits. Whatever the reasons, these events are a terrific way to raise money for a good cause. The weather may not always cooperate, but that doesn’t stop anyone from getting their tee on. Rain or shine, the event must go on!

Several Windermere offices either hosted or sponsored golf tournaments this year. These are just a few of the events:

Snohomish Golf Tournament

In its 21st year, the annual tournament was held on July 21 at the Legion Park Golf Course in Everett, Washington. Organized by the Snohomish group of Windermere offices, participants from the community, as well as Windermere agents from Alderwood, Arlington, Edmonds, Everett-South, Kirkland-Northeast, Lynnwood, Lake Stevens, Marysville, Mill Creek, Monroe, Mukilteo, and Seattle-Mount Baker, all came out for the day. The event raised nearly $25,000 for the Windermere Foundation, and proceeds benefitted Housing Hope’s ChildHope Program.

Windermere Stellar Golf Tournament

On July 27, at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland, Oregon, the Windermere Stellar offices hosted their 6th annual golf tournament to benefit the Windermere Foundation. With a field of 144 golfers, 12 hole sponsors, and eight other sponsors, the event raised nearly $51,000 this year, for a grand total of $225,000 over the last six years. Monies raised go towards providing grants to organizations serving low-income and homeless families.

Windermere Legends Golf Tournament

The annual Windermere Legends Golf Tournament benefits the Windermere Foundation and The Don Deasy Memorial Leadership 1000 Scholarship Fund. Each year, scholarships are awarded to Quincy High School graduates (Don’s Washington hometown) who demonstrate high potential and financial need, and who have been accepted to the University of Washington. This year’s event took place on September 3, at The Golf Club at Newcastle, and raised a little over $25,000.

Windermere Real Estate’s Chip in for Charity Golf Tournament

On September 28, 23 teams came out from 11 Windermere offices in the greater Seattle area for a beautiful day of golf at the Sand Point Country Club. The event also featured a silent auction and dinner, raising more than $20,000 for Seattle Public School programs that serve low-income students.

Thanks to these golf tournaments, as well as a variety of other fundraising events, the Windermere Foundation is able to support non-profit agencies that provide services to low-income and homeless families throughout the Western U.S. To date, that total amounts to over $30 million in donations.

Personalize Your Pumpkins

This Halloween skip the knife and save a pumpkin! Last year we saw this new trend take off and turns out it's still just as popular this year. Do something different than the typical Halloween jack-o-lantern and try a more sophisticated pumpkin with a flourish of your personal style. We've scoured the internet for our favorite bloggers/Instagrammers to bring you the ultimate no carve pumpkin ideas. So, without further ado, here they are!

Floral Fun – Use a drill or nail wide enough to poke holes through for stems of flowers and cover pumpkin in them. Use flowers with your favorite fall colors: yellows, oranges, and reds. For a more dainty look, use white daisies.


Bold & Sparkly - Paint with traditional acrylic paint and allow it to dry overnight, then put glue all over the stem and sprinkle glitter on it (or wherever else). Sparkles and gold accents will add glam to your fall décor and make you wish pumpkins were always in season.


Dia de los Muertos Style – Begin by painting the whole pumpkin white, then allow it to dry overnight. Next draw a skull face with a pencil, and then go over it in paint.

Monogram – Add your initial to your pumpkin with glitter or thumbtacks. If you are putting it outside, another idea is to put your house number on it.

Different types of paint - Use chalk paint for vintage looking pumpkins with muted tones or glow in the dark paint for extra spookiness.

Make it unique – This could easily be our favorite. Are you a wine connoisseur? A Seahawks fanatic? Forever have the wanderlust itch? Put your passions on your pumpkin to reach the pinnacle of customization.

Not only are no carve pumpkins quick and easy, they're super chic too. Spray paint your pumpkins gold, silver, black, and white, add stripes or polka dots or turn it into a doughnut. Whatever direction you go with with it, your 2015 pumpkin game = strong.
