Old Town Anacortes
Summer is the perfect time to truly get to know Anacortes; visit the Farmer’s Market on a Saturday morning, then take the opportunity to walk through the Old Town district and browse the shops on Commercial Avenue. There is no shortage of boutiques, antique shops, book stores, and coffee shops to browse. You can even take a short walk to the marina and enjoy watching the boats coming in and going out.

Deception Pass State Park
If you’ve only driven across the bridge and haven’t actually gone into the park, you need to! Pack a lunch from the Farmer’s Market and go exploring around the park. There is a swimming and picnic area for the family, and miles of hiking and biking trails. You can even take advantage of clamming and crabbing during certain times of the year.

A Sales Tax When You Sell Your Home?

Several of our clients have been misinformed that there is going to be a tax on real estate transactions beginning in 2013. That is not true.

Beginning January 1, 2013 a new 3.8% tax on some investment income will take effect, but it WILL NOT be imposed on all real estate transactions.

What will be taxed is a 3.8% tax on SOME income from interest, dividends, rents less expenses, and capital gain.  The tax will effect individuals with an adjusted gross income (AGI) above $200,000 and couples filing a joint return with income more than $250,000 AGI.

For a more detailed explanation on how this new law might impact you, please contact your tax advisor.

This information is subject to change and is time sensitive.  This is not intended to be tax advice.

However, if you would like information on the real estate market in Anacortes, La Conner, Samish Island, Guemes Island, Bow, or anywhere in Skagit County, please give me a call.  I would be happy to provide you a complimentary market analysis of your real estate or show you homes for sale.
