WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?
According to a recent Kitsap Sun articlewritten by Business Reporter, Rachel Pritchett, our local real-estate market has slowly slipped into its usual seasonal slowdown, beginning in November.
However, compared to last years figures, we’re certainly in much better condition overall.
Pending sales in November were 36 percent higher than in November 2008. The 267 sales that closed in November, while steady in the short term, was far higher than the 166 that closed in November 2008.
As I had shared in a previous post, the popular $8000 1st-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit was officially extended by members of Congress, along with some similar tax credits for Repeat Home Buyers.

Local Business Review: “The Aloha Kitchen”
All I can say is it’s about time!’ Finally, a decent ‘Da Kine’ plate lunch comes to Kitsap County WA with the opening of The Aloha Kitchen!
I’m a HUGE fan of good Teriyaki, but I’ve missed the traditional plate lunch you can only seem to find on the Islands. My favorite used to be The Kim Chee II over in Kaimuki on Oahu. Now, I don’t have to drive so far!
With most traditional plate lunches, you get 2 scoops of rice, macaroni salad, and whatever main dish/entree your Hawaiian heart desires!
On my first visit, I got the Kalbi Ribs. The food was great, the service Island-friendly! The only thing missing was shaved ice!
Make sure for your next business lunch or dinner date, to head over to The Aloha Kitchen and experience true Ohana!
