Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 04, 2014
With the growing population of first and second generation Indian Americans in the area, a need arose to assist the community in not only finding suitable homes and properties, but to connect them with real estate agents who were part of the community itself, or understood its specific needs. Vik Vad, a real estate broker with Cantera Real Estate, this week launched a section of his website, VikVad.com, inviting the Indian community to participate in a Q and A, and answering their questions about the home buying or selling process.
"I am grateful for all of my clients, and I always listen to their individual needs," states Vad, himself a second generation Indian American. "Since I grew up right here in Austin, and am active in the community, I am able to pinpoint exactly what each family needs or wants at the stage of life that they are in, and I enjoy helping them realize their dreams in finding a home." Mr. Vad stressed that though many young families are looking for an area with good schools, and lots of living space, many families with kids that are grown are also looking to downsize as well. Still others are simply looking for quality investment property that appreciates nicely, and yields a good return.
"A buyer shouldn't hesitate to specify that a home should face a certain direction, based on vastu shastra," suggests Vik Vad. "Or sometimes we are looking for a suitable puja room, or a separate area for parents living with the family, or frequent guests." It goes without saying that Vik and his team understand the unique needs of Indian families, and appreciates getting them a good value for their money, or selling their home at top dollar in the market. He also has an almost endless list of contacts for local temples, desi grocery stores, and specific sub-community friends and gatherings. Mr. Vad encourages those that are new to the area to contact him directly for a free, no obligation consultation, and has even made friends with many of the people whom he originally helped to purchase a home.
