Going Over 50 (SRES)

Going over 50Homebuyers and homesellers over age 50 (and yes, I’m looking in the mirror) have a varying set of needs when it comes to housing. Some of us are downsizing due to an empty nest. Some are looking for a retirement home near the grandkids – or a golf course. For others, moving into a retirement community is in the cards. There is also the possibility of needing a home with a master on main bedroom or a mother in law suite. Older individuals also have different financial profiles than younger families.

The National Association of REALTORS® has a special designation for agents who have completed training that helps those 50 address the myriad of choices that they face. “Seniors Real Estate Specialists®” designees (like me), are better equipped to counsel clients through the financial and lifestyle transitions involved in moving, refinancing, or selling a family home.

If you’re in this age category, give me a call. We can chat about the joys as well as the aches of maturing, and then talk about your real estate needs.
