Real estate for seniors (50+)

As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I understand managing capital gains and the tax implications of owning real estate. I can provide information that addresses a host of issues that affect real estate decisions for senior citizens.

Buying or selling after age 50: mixed emotions

Buying a residence when 50 can be both exciting and daunting. The excitement stems from anticipating new beginnings in a fresh environment. It can be daunting because there are so many types of senior residences, finite resources and sometimes emotional hurdles to overcome.

I will sit down with you and your loved ones to discuss needs, outline options and help you determine the very best 50 residence option for you. Then, working within the parameters you provide, I will locate properties that fit your needs acurately, determine appropriate offers, and negotiate purchases on your behalf.

When necessary, I can tap a network of experts, such as home inspectors, movers, attorneys, and CPAs, to ensure that the purchase of your new residence, and the move, proceed smoothly.

Let's talk about your real estate goals. There is no cost, no pressure, and no obligation.

There is no one better who can help you sell your current home and/or find your ideal home than a Realtor. But it is important that you work with a Realtor you trust and who is a good match for you!

With selling a long-time home, there's almost always an emotional element attached. I specialize in senior needs and can ease the transition first by talking about your reasons for selling and then exploring all the options either modifying and staying in your current home or finding a different property to be sure you find the very best housing solution.

I use my expertise and industry knowledge to provide an honest assessment of your property and make suggestions for improving it for saleability. I may recommend hiring staging professionals who can make modifications that will best showcase your house and make it appeal to the broadest audience possible.

I can also provide insight on current market conditions, determine how your property stacks up against the competition and develop a pricing and marketing strategy to sell your home quickly and for the highest possible price.

Moving is easier with an experienced agent.

I can help assemble an appropriate team to ease the transition to a new property. Movers, landscapers and stagers can handle the heavy lifting. Attorneys, 1031 exchange specialists and mortgage brokers can manage the heavy paperwork.

I can also help you find your new home locally or refer you to another expert elsewhere to find property in a new city or near children.
