For seniors, moving and selling your home is a BIG step.
Your parent might be reluctant – even fearful – to leave their home for a completely different lifestyle in a retirement community.
- Does your parent have unrealistic expectations regarding the value of the home? Joan takes time to walk your parent through the pricing process, helping them separate sentiment from reality, so you can arrive at a realistic price for the property.
- Is the home outdated or in need of repair? Joan understands the Denver housing market. She knows what today’s buyers are looking for and will recommend only those updates and repairs that make sense to your bottom line. For instance, thinking of replacing worn carpet covering hardwood floors? Don’t waste your money. Young buyers – who make up the majority of today’s market – prefer hardwood floors.
- Is your parent fearful of downsizing and letting go of precious belongings? Joan can suggest many tips to “rightsize” your parents’ home, as well as recommend professional organizers and staging experts.
If the senior’s property requires repairs or upgrades, Joan’s resources can help.
