Are you, or someone you know, considering downsizing or moving to a retirement community? It may be a good time to contact a Senior Real Estate Specialist (like me!) with unique training and skills to ensure a smooth transaction—AND transition!
What is a Senior Real Estate Specialist
A Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) is a real estate agent who has undergone specialized training to work with seniors, typically individuals aged 50 and older, to address their specific real estate needs. These specialists are equipped to assist senior clients in various aspects of real estate, particularly when they're buying or selling properties.
SRES designees have a thorough understanding of the financial, legal, and emotional factors that often come into play when seniors make real estate decisions. They can provide guidance on a wide range of topics, including downsizing, retirement communities, age-restricted housing, estate planning, and other matters relevant to older individuals and their families.
Some common services provided by Senior Real Estate Specialists include:
Advising on downsizing: Assisting seniors in transitioning into smaller, more manageable homes or retirement communities.
Estate planning: Helping clients consider how real estate transactions can fit into their overall estate planning strategies.
Retirement communities: Guiding seniors through the process of selecting suitable retirement communities or assisted living facilities.
Legal and financial considerations: Collaborating with legal and financial professionals to ensure seniors' real estate transactions align with their larger financial goals and estate plans.
