Is Now The Right Time To Downsize...

If you have ever moved before, you probably aren’t surprised to learn that moving is considered to be one of life’s most stressful events. Moving can be very traumatic for older adults, especially those that have lived in their current home for decades and raised their family there. Leaving the home behind is both physically and emotionally difficult, but is a decision most older adults will eventually have to make.

The three most common reasons seniors relocate are:

  • Difficulty in maintaining a yard or home repairs and maintenance.

  • Declining health or just the aches and pains of growing older are making it harder to navigate your home.

  • Freedom. Many older adults are looking for an easier lifestyle where they can spend time enjoying their family and friends and not being tied down to their home.

If you are a senior who is thinking about moving or you are trying to help an older adult you love begin the process of relocating, it’s important to take your time and find a Realtor who understands the unique challenges that come along with selling a home when you are a senior.

Jennifer Herron Underwood is a Senior Real Estate Specialist. She has earned the designation from the National Association of Realtor. This credential means she has gone the extra mile to learn how to be a true resource for older sellers.

She is currently offering free “Downsizing 101 Consultations” in the comfort of your own home. These are no obligation appointments that will last approximately 60 minutes and will cover important concerns such as:

  • Is your home saleable? Should you make repairs or do you need to make repairs to sell your home? Can you sell as is? What is your home worth in today’s market? Is my home inspection ready? Should I have a pre-inspection?

  • She will provide you with her valuable “Downsizing 101” guide and helpful information for downsizing.

  • She can help assemble a team to help ease your transition to a new property. Movers, landscapers, and stagers can handle the heavy lifting. Attorneys and specialists can handle the heavy paperwork.
