FOR SENIOR SELLERS & BUYERS
Is it time to sell your family home?
Are you thinking of selling your home to downsize or move to a senior-supportive environment? Or perhaps to move in with an adult son or daughter who can assist you as you grow older?
Whatever the case may be, you may be considering leaving the family home and 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 prefer to continue living in their own home or aging in place. Sometimes though, circumstances don’t allow it:
Home maintenance becomes a burden
A major life event forces considering a move
An aging parent wants to live closer to adult children or other 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.
