Restaurant review – Tastebud

Tastebud
 
 
We recently met friends in Multnomah Village for pizza – we'd heard a lot about Tastebud & love wood fired pizza, so we gave it a whirl. They don't take reservations, but there are a lot of nearby bars to grab a drink while you wait, and Tastebud will call your cell when your table is ready, so we had a martini at Renner while we waited.
 
The service was quick, they had a nice choice of beers, and the pizzas we tried were dynamite.

We ordered the Yoder, which had lamb sausage, jalapenos, fresh mozzarella and parsley.  The Nausicaa had pork sausage, olives, mozzarella & fennel.  Both were extremely good and two pizzas fed four hungry people perfectly.

This isn't just a pizza place, though, so don't hesitate to try the fish, chicken or chops!  Everything they make comes from this beautiful oven!  Dinner Menu
 
I'm super happy to not have to cross a bridge for really good wood-fired pizza!  Once in a while you like to just roll down the hill to dinner.  We love you, Tastebud.

Waiting to Sell Your Home Until After the Holidays

 

Waiting until after the Holidays, Isn’t a Smart Decision | Keeping Current Matters

 

Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their home on the market for the first time. Others who already have their home on the market decide to take it off the market until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait: 1. Relocation buyers are out there. Companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays. 2. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy. 3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control. 4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays. 5. There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year: Supply of Homes | Keeping Current Matters

 

6. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will make a comeback in 2016. This will lessen the demand for your house.

Bottom Line

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home may cause you to miss a very good selling opportunity!

 

Please call me if you'd like me to walk through your home with suggestions on how to position it in the marketplace for top dollar!

Your nest and your nest egg

2015: A Year of Housing Opportunity | Keeping Current Matter

 

 

Many believed that when the housing market crashed, so too would the desire of American’s to own a home again. Many reports have shown that, especially among younger generations, the American Dream of homeownership is still very much alive. Julián Castro, Secretary for HUD, recently summed up what it means to own a home in a speech at the National Press Club.

"Homeownership is still the cornerstone of the American Dream — a fact you can see in the lives of everyday folks. It’s a source of pride. It’s a source of wealth, providing both a nest and a nest egg. And it strengthens communities and fuels growth in the overall economy."

Castro appropriately named his speech, “2015: A Year of Housing Opportunity”, a theme that rang true throughout.

“Opportunity is not an abstract concept – it's a path to a more prosperous life, and housing often serves as its foundation. T.S. Elliot once said that "home is where one starts from." “A home is often a primary source of wealth in a family… Having a home is generational way to pass that wealth on. We want people responsible enough to own a home to have that opportunity.”

Bottom Line

“Over the years-through decades of economic downturns and wars-the American people have always held on to this Dream, and always will.”

As the economy continues to improve, more and more Americans will qualify for homeownership, allowing more families to obtain the American Dream.
