Blog Buyer Retire in the Couve' (Vancouver, Washington)

Retire in the Couve’ (Vancouver, Washington)

By Julia Robertson, October 1, 2019

Making smart investments now, leads to easy living into retirement.

I’m not a financial advisor, but I’ve been witness to some very smart investments over the years.  I’m impressed by this adorable couple purchasing a retirement home in Vancouver, Washington. They decided that the Couve’ is their destination for retirement(Noted as the one of the best places to retire in the US, by Forbes). They flew in from California a month ago and we previewed several homes, fell in love with a great townhome. Vancouver average home price is $291k, has a good economy, and rests on the Columbia river gorge- with breathtaking views and countless activities to do outdoors. The Couve'(Vancouver) has been voted ‘best place to retire‘ many years in a row, on many lists.

After they went into contract, they flew back to California. I’ve attended the inspections on their behalf, coordinated contractors, completed final walkthroughs, communicated all details of the transaction with them- all while they are residing in California. Most people still have to go about their life and work during the real estate process and I love being able to communicate all the details long distance on their behalf! We coordinated the closing details so they could keep their travel plans to Paris. What a relief to know that everything is taken care of while you’re away. The plan is to rent the home for the next 5 years or so, building equity, and watch that nest egg grow! I’m honored to help you through this process. Congrats Anne and Marshall! C’est l’heure de fêter ça!
