BUYING YOUR HOME OR FARM ON VASHON ISLAND:
Buying a home in a small, rural community with a very small inventory of homes can be a challenge. We try to educate our clients about our market so that they can make a wise and informed decision. Do you want waterfront, a view, or maybe a farm? Will you have horses, a boat, or need kids space? Will you need to be close to the ferry, close to schools, near town or want to be really remote? We work hard to find you a home that best fits your needs, and once you've found a home we work with you every step of the way to insure a successful transaction.
BUYING LAND ON VASHON ISLAND:
Buying land requires specific information and research. We pride ourselves on being able to assist our clients in making the decision to buy a parcel of land and then help them through the feasibility process. Septic designs, geo-technical engineering reviews, well siting, water shares, building requirements, drainage, the critical areas ordinance and many other issues need to be addressed. Building your own home should be exciting and satisfying, not a nightmare.
BUYING A SECOND HOME OR VACATION HOME ON VASHON ISLAND:
Buying a second home for part time Island living or a vacation home for just a few weeks a year is a process we are very familiar with at Amiad & Associates. We have helped many families satisfy their dream of an island getaway and can structure our search to fit your special needs. We are also comfortable with 1031 exchanges and other special tax issues that are often an important part of this kind of transaction.
BUYING INVESTMENT PROPERTY ON VASHON ISLAND:
Many of our clients have purchased homes or commercial property as an investment over the years. We are experienced in analyzing property for investment purposes and in working with business and commercial property.
BUYING A RETIREMENT HOME ON VASHON ISLAND:
We are seeing more and more people choosing a Vashon Island home for their retirement. They are looking to find a friendly, supportive community filled with cultural activities, volunteer opportunities and senior services. We also work extensively with the parents of folks already on the Island who want to be close to their children and grandchildren. This population has specific needs and desires that we are happy to accommodate.
