Your Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES) Realtor®
Are you thinking of selling your home to move to a senior supportive environment? Or perhaps to move in with an adult son or daughter who can help with your needs as you grow older?
You may be considering leaving the family home with all that it represents – the place where children were raised; the safety and security of a family unit; the physical space where your oldest and dearest memories reside. For seniors, it can signify the best years of their lives, where friends and community ties were made.
Many seniors would refer to continue living in their own home, or aging in place. Sometimes, circumstances work against those preferences:
- Home maintenance becomes a burden
- A major life event forces considering a move
- An aging parent wants to live closer to adult children or their caretakers
- Financial concerns make it difficult to keep the home
- Support services are needed that are not available at home
Whatever the reason, there may come a time when parents, along with their adult children, consider selling and moving on. As your SRES®, Jim Maceo can help you and your family through the complex issues and unique situations your may encounter during the process.
