Whether you are a seasoned homeowner or a first time home buyer, your goals and objectives are important to me. In partnership with you, 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.
Real estate can be purchased and 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.
