Metropolitan Market celebrates it's grand opening in Sammamish with record crowds. Hundreds of people were lined up around the block for the 9:00 AM launch. If you got a parking spot you were one of the lucky ones as cars were seen parked to the west as far as 218th Ave SE and pedestrians walked from Sammamish City hall to the north. In attendance were the Sammamish City Council along with Sammamish Chamber of commerce members and Metropolitan Market employees from other stores.
Inside the market is an array of beautiful and artfully displayed foods of every sort. The perimeter of the store features the meat, produce, deli and specialty items including the bakery cafe, pizzeria, poke bar and many more. Truthfully it was hard to see everything because the store was packed with shoppers. It is evident that this is exactly what Sammamish residents want. The upscale nature, high quality and extensive selection are clearly a home run. The middle aisles of the market are the standard grocery items, staples, canned goods etc. still with the high quality and variety expected from the Metropolitan market stores.
As for me I am looking forward to enjoying the convenient location and 24 hour availability Metropolitan Market will provide. See you at the market!
Whenever we list a property, the homeowner always wants our advice on what improvements or changes they should make before putting the house on the market. As part of answering that question, we often look to Remodeling magazine, where every year, they publish the Cost vs. Value Report.
It’s a parched, scorching desert out there for many U.S. home buyers. For the past 28 months, the housing market has been defined not just by demand—which remains sky-high in many parts of the nation—but also by the shrinking number of available homes for sale. So what are the signposts of a tighter-than-tight marketplace? Buyers are jumping on realtor.com® listings within seconds of their initial postings. Wanna-be homeowners are burrowing themselves into ever-scarcer, ever-busier open houses and going a little mad trying to get in the first bid. Real estate agents are knocking on hundreds of doors just to squeeze out one more listing.
