When Hayley Francis set out in search of her dream home in Seattle during the summer of 2015, she did so toting a wishlist of charming must-haves: checkerboard black and white tile floors in the kitchen, hardwoods throughout, and a classic Craftsman style. And, in the midst of a rapidly rising and highly competitive housing market, she was lucky enough to land a house in Seattle’s desirable Roosevelt neighborhood that checked off all of the boxes on her list— and then some! She had effectively hit the first-time homeowner’s jackpot.
