Expect Democrats to pound on Republican Senate candidate Dino Rossi for several days about his upcoming speaking engagement on real estate.
It's a seminar Tuesday at a Bellevue restaurant that asks a legitimate question, although not one for which many people are seeking an answer. To wit:
"Is now the time to buy a Waterfront Home?"
The seminar, put on by a real estate firm, is going to answer the question in the affirmative, listing some "great dealw" of $11 million on down on Lake Washington, citing low interest rates and low closing costs.
Clearly a buyers' market on high end lake mansions. But maybe not the best speaking gig for someone running for the U.S. Senate in tough economic times.
