Now that you are getting older, are you thinking about moving to a small condo closer to family. As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, I can assist you with your move by providing you specialized knowledge, tools and resources necessary to make your move a smooth one. My training has helped prepare me to work with senior adults as they transition through different types of real estate. I am not just to help you sell your home and fine a new place to live but to make the entire process easier with tips and advice that will help your transition go smoothly. The following are things I will do to help you.
Help You Develop a Realistic Schedule for Your Move
If you have lived in your home for 30 years, you may not know where to start when it comes to moved. I will help you stay on task and work with you keep you moving forward according to the schedule you choose. It’s easy to procrastinate and wait until the last minute to figure out where everything will go once moving day comes. However, the longer you put it off, the more stressful things can get.
Plan for the new space
I will help you plan ahead by helping you figure out how much space will be available in your new home. Then I will help you visualize what you can realistically take with you and what you can’t.
Use a tagging system to categorize items
Now that you have a plan for your new space, I will explain how to separate and tag the items that will stay behind into different categories. What items can be donated? What items will be sold? What items can go to children or other family members? Creating a tagged system like this can streamline the downsizing process and help keep you organized.
While helping you figure out which items will go where, I will imagine myself in your shoes. Moving is emotional and stressful and while it isn’t my move, I will treat it like it is.
Help get belongings where they need to go
Once you have finished deciding on where everything will go, it’s time to get everything to its respective place or new owner. I can help you locate a professional to assist you with relocating and disposing of the items you won’t be taking with you if you don’t have anyone that can help you.
As space clears up in the your home, and moving day approaches, I will keep working with you to answer your questions and ensure everything is finished right until the end and beyond. I love that my clients become friends so when you have questions later, I am still here to help you anytime you need.
