The process for seniors has its own unique set of requirements that must be met. A REALTOR® specially trained to serve the fifty-plus market with the sale of their home and transition have additional services and systems to make the experience for seniors as smooth, comfortable, safe, and stress free as possible.
Some of these services and systems may include:
Extra help & guidance. Many seniors are widowed and living alone. They aren’t sure of the next steps. If they don’t have local relatives to help them then as a REALTOR® trained to work with seniors, I provide consultations to explain the entire process. I patiently ask everything I need to know about them. Then I offer all the options for their transition. Even if it requires multiple consultations to be sure they are 100% informed and comfortable.
The home selling experience is complicated – for anyone. Many topics, ideas, and contracts are discussed during the process. I make sure I get to know my client(s). If necessary, I present everything in a slower paced format. I help my client to relax and feel they always have ample time to process the things we discuss without feeling any pressure. The result is better understanding and reduced stress & anxiety for them.
Real Estate Contracts in plain English.
Real estate documents are written by Lawyers. They can be long & confusing Before we list the home for sale I sit down with copies of all usual contracts, in larger type if requested, and written in layman’s terms. This extra consultation helps my clients feel more comfortable with the paperwork required during the actual transaction and allows them to ask questions or explain their concerns with me early. Then, when an actual offer is made they clearly know what they’re signing, without feeling anxious, confused, or overwhelmed.
Supporting professionals. The home selling process involves MANY professionals. As a full service REALTOR® I’m your ONE-STOP professional. I offer a safe, smooth, and stress-free experience for seniors. I have a full team of professionals specializing in helping seniors.
These are proven & vetted professionals I’ve worked with successfully in the past for other seniors. This may include professionals to help with packing, unpacking, decluttering, donating, movers who treat seniors with respect, compassion, and patience during the move, and more.
