Buying a home? Here’s inside knowledge that pays

In real estate, location is key. But how do you find that ideal location for you? It helps to have a little inside information!

David Law grew up in California, and after a few years living in Dallas, Texas, he missed the West Coast’s ocean and mountains. With his wife in the tech industry, the Pacific Northwest seemed the perfect destination, says the licensed realtor with The Agency Northwest.

“We’ve made our home in Issaquah for the last 13 years and having raised our son and daughter here, we’ve gotten to know the people and the places that make the region special,” David says. “There’s a real sense of community.”

Reflecting on that experience, “one of the things I bring to the table for buyers, especially those new to the area, is the experience of being a transplant myself.”

With more than a decade in local real estate, he also brings in-depth awareness of market trends.

While the market remains seasonally slow through December and January, and did see an adjustment from May 2018’s peak values, expect to see the market rebound with increasing prices. Why? Not only is there continued demand for the Seattle region, but historically low interest rates continue to provide incentives, notes David, who specializes in working with buyers.

“It’s very exciting to help people find, negotiate and buy their perfect home.”

Get the inside track on the home you want

In real estate, building connections with clients is essential. After all, you’re guiding them in one of the most significant events of their life!

But community relationships are just as vital. A knowledgeable, connected real estate agent is attune to both to what’s on the market now, and what’s coming.

“The relationships I have in the community, and the large network of people I’ve gotten to know through sports, the tech industry and beyond, allows me to be tuned in to potential homes that might be coming available,” David says.

What’s important to you – now and in the future?

That inside knowledge reaches beyond knowing where the good family areas are, or where you can be close to urban amenities and transportation. It’s also key to understanding how local neighborhoods are evolving – what they’ll look like five or even 10 years from now.

After all, the last thing you want is to overpay for a home, then find it impossible to build equity.

“That’s why it’s so important to have that local knowledge, and work with someone who will secure the best deal so you don’t over-pay,” David says. “I help my clients find the right homes at the right price point, in the areas in the most demand, and that meet their needs.”

The local real estate market is expected to rebound after a seasonal lull thanks to continued demand for the Seattle region and historically low interest rates.
