Lease your Broadmoor Home – Rentals Needed

Broadmoor Rental

Broadmoor Home - Leased by Ewing & Clark

There is a great shortage of luxury homes available for rent in Seattle right now – especially in central neighborhoods such as Broadmoor, Madison Park, and Capitol Hill.  It is especially challenging to find larger homes to accommodate families that are looking to lease. There are many reasons families look to rent a home: perhaps they already have the home of their dreams and in the midst of an extensive remodel and would like to be out of the house during that time, some are just moving to the area and want to get a feel for the neighborhoods before purchasing or ensure their new job is going to work out as expected, others are just not ready to commit to a purchase. Either way, there are lots of folks out there looking for nice home and they’re willing to pay for it.

So, if you are a Seattle home owner looking to move or thinking of taking a sabbatical then consider renting your house. The need is: clean and well cared for 3+ beds, nice/newer kitchens and baths.

Ewing and Clark has clients specifically looking at Broadmoor and the surrounding areas. Call Ewing and Clark at 206-322-2840 or contact an agent at the Madison Park office – they will be happy to get your home rented for you!

Ewing & Clark has leased several homes in Broadmoor, including the home pictured above.

“Good to Go” on 520-Tolling Begins in April

The 520 Bridge is almost ready to begin tolling, and the cheapest way to travel over the bridge will be signing up for a Good To Go account. The Good To Go account comes with a transponder, available for purchase at Safeway stores for $5 dollars. Transponders are activated by a license plate number and deposit, the use of which is necessary because the lack of toll booths. The toll will be taken out of the user’s pre-paid account as they cross, and those without a transponder will be fined, thanks to the cameras taking snapshots of license plates. Good To Go is the state’s most recent electronic tolling system, and WSDOT expects the tolling on 520 will help keep costs to work on the bridge at bay. Toll amount will vary throughout the day, which was planned to encourage driving during off-peak hours. Good to go passes are available online, at Safeway stores, or at service centers. Visit the official website for more information.

UPDATE:  It is April and it is not “Good to Go”….won’t make any predictions until I hear when it is really going to start.
