I'm sure you've heard that King County home prices are on the rise but how much, you say? This chart, courtesy of Seattle Times, shows exactly how high.

David goes on to explain...WHAT IS FICO?
- The FICO score is the most popular credit score model in the country. It's a statistical calculation based on the information in your credit profile.
- FICO reports several types of scores. Each is tailored for a different purpose, such as a credit card, personal, installment, auto
