  • Five Pieces of Good News From Seattle

    July 29, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Technology has given us radical levels of instant, exciting connection. However, with so much going on in the world, reading / listening to / watching / skimming through the news every day can feel a little overwhelming.  So, to help you start your week in a positive mood, here are five good things currently happening in the Seattle area. 1. A Kirkland startup aims to reduce food waste. According to the USDA, Americans throw away 32 billion pounds of produce every year. Stixfresh, however, has designed a sticker to place on fruit that keeps it fresh longer. This tiny sticker contains wax and naturally-sourced ingredients that “create a protective layer around your fruit.”  Studies have also shown that these stickers also increase the fruit’s sweetness and help it retain moisture and firmness. Buy these magical stickers through their crowdsourcing campaign. 2. A Seattle nonprofit is cleaning up homeless camps. The city of Seattle has been working for years to help its residents who experience homelessness. In general, Washington, Oregon, and California experience higher rates of homelessness than in other areas of the country. Facing Homelessness, based out of Seattle, began as a Facebook page that published individuals’ stories in order…Read more

  • Should You Rent Or Buy in the Seattle Area?

    July 19, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Renting isn’t easy these days. During the second quarter of 2019, the demand for apartments increased by 11% from a year ago, which resulted in a 3% increase for the national average rent.  Business Insider reports that the average rent in Seattle for a one-bedroom apartment is $2,049. If $2,000 for a one-bedroom sounds expensive, that’s because it is. While Seattle apartments do cost less than those in Los Angeles (average rent $2,362) or San Francisco (average rent $3,600—yikes), they still rank among the most expensive rentals in the country. Sorting through all of the information and making the best decision for your individual housing needs can make your head spin. Reach out to Pickett Street’s experts to talk through your living situation and your buying or selling options. Additionally, we’ve laid out a few clear facts below to help you get organized. To rent or to buy: Renting pros: You’ll pay less up front. And one perk about living in this area: a security deposit in Seattle cannot cost more than one month’s rent.  You don’t have to worry about home maintenance. Seattle’s current apartment boom means that there are plenty of apartments available. Renting cons: It’s not a…Read more

  • Summer 2019 Gardening Trends

    July 15, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Doesn’t reading a good thriller in a hammock or enjoying corn salad while sipping one of these cool local drinks on the patio sound amazing?  I recently visited my parents in Gig Harbor and delighted in my stepdad’s gorgeous garden in full bloom, with its shady paths and sprawling flowers and herbs. Since then, I’ve had outdoor living spaces on my mind. If you, too, are curious about cultivating outdoor spaces, here are a few summer gardening trends for 2019. 1. Native, ecologically-friendly gardens The University of Washington Press recently released the third edition of Arthur R. Kruckeberg and Linda Chalker-Scott’s Gardening with Native Plants of the Northwest. The book acts as a guide to the Pacific Northwest’s lush landscapes and native flora; readers will find information about nearly 1,000 trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and grasses.  According to the Seattle Times book review, “Regardless of where you stand on the native/non-native continuum, I think we all can agree that cultivating resilient biodiverse landscapes that support pollinators, wildlife and human habitat is a good thing.”  Country Living UK agrees that planting gardens that thrive in your area’s climate conditions is key. Designer Sue Townsend advises people “to plant the right plants…Read more

  • Investing in Vacant Land

    July 8, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    A few months ago, I chatted with a friend about whether she ever planned to move on from renting to buying her own home.  “What I really want,” she confessed, “is to buy some land outside of the city and build a treehouse on it.” (If you’re curious about what the heck a treehouse residence is, check out these stunning examples from around the world.) Luckily for my friend and for many others who think out of the box, investing in real estate can take many different forms. If purchasing a standard previously constructed house is not for you, consider purchasing a duplex, a condo, a residential or commercial building, a farm, or even vacant land. First, as always, call or email Pickett Street at to talk about your real estate options. The team can walk you through all the options. Then, take a look at the list below of pros and cons for purchasing vacant land. Pros: 1. Owning vacant land as a long-term investment can be more affordable than owning a home. Property taxes and fees are often lower for vacant land than for developed land. Purchasing vacant land is also cheaper up front. Most vacant lots in…Read more

    Pickett Street Properties is dedicated to serving the community and is highlighting businesses and community members that are dedicated to doing the same. In this highlight we are excited to share about the Watershed Pub & Kitchen in Northgate, WA.

When Ben and his now wife and Co-Owner Kelsey were starting to talk about marriage they also started talking more seriously about the idea of opening a pub. After one of Ben's regulars at the Fiddler's Inn urged him toward Thornton Place as a potential location, followed by many months of planning and negotiations along with Ben's parents Liz and Craig, the dream solidified and Watershed Pub & Kitchen became a reality.   The Watershed Pub & Kitchen is a family owned, community founded neighborhood pub centered abound craft beer, cider, wine and spirits, wholesome, scratch-made comfort food and genuine hospitality and community.
