Your Real Estate Needs & Goals
Whether you are a seasoned homeowner or a first time home buyer, your goals and objectives are important to me. With your goals & objectives paramount, we will consider the current market, whether buying or selling, to find the best possible opportunities for you. If you are just starting out? Consider buying a duplex, you live in one unit & lease out the other. This give you the opportunity to offset your monthly mortgage with the rental income.
Planning for the future?
Real estate can be purchased & can be held in a trust for the benefit of a child/grandchild for their future education. Working with your estate planning attorney and financial adviser, there are many avenues to leverage the real estate market for future needs be they education, retirement, charitable gifting. As a member of the Estate Planning Council of South King County, I'm glad to network with & refer you to highly knowledgeable professionals of integrity who can help you identify opportunities that would be best for you.
I partner with seniors &/or their children/family to down-size/right-size their living environment, including decluttering, installing ADA mobility aids & making repairs/adjustments for improved safety in & around the home.
If you have been left with the responsibility of selling a home of a deceased family member/friend, I reguarly partner with finanical advisors, estate attorneys and CPA's to finalize the affairs of a loved one with respect and in line with their wishes.
