Market Facts: Is it REALLY a Seller’s Market & WHY???
In short. Yes. Total YES!
Here’s why. A “balanced” market is a 6 month supply of homes. A Seller’s market is less than 6 months. PIERCE COUNTY HAS A 1.4 MONTH SUPPLY. Stop. Think about that. Take a balanced market. Cut the Inventory in Half…. then cut it in HALF AGAIN. That’s where we are today.

Fully Loaded Deviled Eggs
Before you know it, Easter will be here! One of the things I love about Easter besides family and my Faith is the Deviled Eggs. But, face it…. we’ve all had “not so great” Deviled Eggs. These ones are hands, down the BOMB! A must try for any Easter get together.
• 12 eggs
• 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
• 1 small onion, chopped
• 1/4 cup sour cream
• 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
• 1 tablespoon ranch dressing, or to taste
• 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 pinch onion powder
• 1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
• 1 tablespoon bacon bits, or to taste
• 1 cup finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
• 1/4 teaspoon paprika, or as needed
1. Place eggs into a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium; boil eggs for 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the boiling water and fill pot with cold water. After 2 to 3 minutes, pour off water and replace with more cold water. Repeat until eggs are fully chilled, 10 to 15 minutes. Peel eggs.
2. Heat vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat and cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
3. Slice eggs in half lengthwise and scoop yolks into a bowl; transfer egg white halves to a plate. Mash egg yolks with a fork; stir in sour cream, mayonnaise, ranch dressing, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and lemon pepper seasoning until yolk mixture is smooth. Stir in bacon bits and Cheddar cheese.
4. Generously fill egg halves with filling and sprinkle each deviled egg with paprika. Refrigerate until chilled before serving.
Spring Cleaning Tips
1. The best refrigerator cleaner is a combination of salt and soda water. The bubbling action of the soda water combines with the abrasive texture of the salt to make a great cleaner.
2. The best way to get rid of lime buildup around the faucet it is to lay paper towels over the fixture, soak it with vinegar and let it set for an hour. The deposits will soften and become easier to remove.
3. Clean screens with a scrap of carpeting. It makes a powerful brush that removes all the dirt.
4. Clean windows with a rag and soapy water, and then dry them with another rag. You can also go to an auto-parts store and buy a windshield squeegee, which cleans very well.
5. If drapes are looking drab, take them out of the window, remove the hooks and run them through the air-fluff cycle in the dryer along with a wet towel (to draw off the dust) for 15 minutes. Hang them back in the windows immediately.
6. Clean the blades of a ceiling fan by covering them with a coat of furniture polish. Wipe off the excess and lightly buff.
7. Sometimes comforters, blankets and pillows don’t need to be cleaned, but they do need to be aired out after a long winter in your closed-up home. Take them outside and hang them on a clothesline for a day.
