As we age, our real estate needs change. From renter, to first-time home Buyer, seasoned Seller or buying a vacation home, our needs change and the experience of your Realtor does make a difference. I recently obtained certification in Senior Real Estate Services specialist (SRES) that includes advanced skills training in down-sizing methods, managing a long-distance move, financing strategies for retirement and the role of housing, finding retirement community resources, and mortgage strategies for seniors. Finding an agent who has these advanced skills and someone who understands how seniors need added communication and support, can take the pressure off of other family members and help make any real estate transaction less stressful and time-consuming. If you have a family member who needs a Senior Real Estate Specialist, or you yourself are contemplating a housing change due to retirement, illness or a relocation, contact me for a free and personal housing analysis.
