Uncertain Strict Timelines Cause Unneeded Stress
Seniors face the most uncertain timelines compared to any other age group. This is especially true if you’re on a waiting list for a senior living facility. You’re not sure when you’ll be able to move in, but once you get the call, things need to move fast.
Finding the Right People to Work With
Let’s face it, seniors are a vulnerable group who are often targeted by people who will try to take advantage. This is why it is imperative to work with honest people you can trust. Finding the right people will make your whole transition process better.
Showings Cause Safety and Inconvenience Difficulties
Selling your house with a Realtor means showing your house to multiple (often unqualified) buyers, until it’s sold. Vacating your house to accommodate for showings is a difficult task. Problematic weather conditions, health issues, and the need for assistance will make showing a huge inconvenience and safety issue for many seniors.
Repairs Limit Pool of Buyers
Many seniors have lived in their home for a long time. Chances are your house in need of extensive updates and repairs. Outdated houses will limit the pool of buyers. Today’s buyers expect a move in ready house with modern updates.
