As the weather gets colder, heaters go on and fireplaces are lit. Save on energy with these tips!
As the weather gets colder, heaters go on and fireplaces are lit. However, keeping your house warm can get expensive. This season, save on energy in Premier homes by following these tips.
-Set your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees when home. Lower this temperature when in bed or when you are not home. For every degree that you lower your thermostat, you save about two percent on your heating bill.
-Weatherize your home by caulking and weather-stripping all doors and windows. In addition, use locks on windows to make them tighter and draft resistant. Continue reading →
Congrats to our Howl-oween Best Pet Costume Contest winner, Lexy the Biker Babe!
Join us in congratulating our Howl-oween Best Pet Costume Contest winner, Lexy the Biker Babe! Lexy heated up the competition with her edgy and rockin’ style. She could definitely be the owner of a Harley! Her family, the Tuckers, received a $200 gift certificate. Maybe Lexy can get a new helmet?!
The Howl-oween promotion did not just bring cute animals dressed in their best costumes, it also brought Premier new Facebook “likes.” As promised, for each new “like,” we donated $1 to the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County. In all, we donated about $120! Hopefully, it will help more pets be adopted into good families, such as the Tucker family. Continue reading →
Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my! Our Howl-oween contest hasn’t had any zoo animals enter yet, but we do have a tourist, sheep, pirate, biker, Santa, tourist, hot dog and even a banana split! There is still time to enter your pet in our Best Pet Costume Contest on the Premier Communities Facebook page! Dressing up pets for Halloween sure is fun, but please remember to keep their safety in mind.
Here are some pet safety tips for residents in our new homes in Lacey, Auburn, Bonney Lake, Everett, Fife, Lakeland, Olympia, Orting, Puyallup, Spanaway and Tumwater:
-Don’t assume that pets will love their new costumes. Try costumes on in advance to see how they react. If they don’t like dressing up, don’t make them. Continue reading →
Kids love dressing up on Halloween. We are sure to see lots of princesses, ghosts, ghouls, sports figures and cartoon characters trick or treating from our Auburn, Orting, Tumwater, Spanaway, Olympia, Fife and Lacey homes. Sometimes you even see the family dog dressed up and following the kids along the route. To make sure everyone is included in this festive holiday, Premier Communities invites you to sniff out some special treats for your furry friends on Facebook this Howl-oween. Enter your pet in our Best Pet Costume Contest for the chance to win the grand prize, a $200 gift certificate to the place of your choice (You choose, it’s our treat!).

Premier Communities is thankful to be selling homes near Seattle. Why? In a Zillow.com report about the cities where homes sell the fastest, Seattle real estate ranked second! Others on the list were San Francisco, Boston and Alexandria, Va.
“Although the U.S. housing market continues to struggle, many local markets are doing significantly better than the country as a whole, with some places virtually missing the housing bust altogether,” states a CNBC article, “While shifts in home values are important in any market, it’s important for sellers to determine the length of time a property can expect to be on the market before it will be sold.”
Homes that sell fast attract perspective buyers and allow sellers to accept favorable offers. Seattle’s median time to sell between April and July, 2011 was 73 days. Since the national median was 117 days, and even 168 days in New York, that’s fast!
If you want to invest in great Seattle real estate, visit our Premier homes in the Tacoma, Olympia and Everett areas.
