Making use of your resources: The easier way to move
When elderly men and women make the decision to move into an assisted living facility or 55+ community, the transition can be difficult. There is a sense of unease associated with that big move. Will they sell or rent out their current home? How will they move? Where do they even begin to look?
A realtor can be beneficial in this transition because he or she can help take the stress off the selling process. Wendy Woodruff, a Valdosta-based realtor, says her responsibilities are promoting and protecting the client’s interests.
“I’m responsible for preparing a comparative market analysis, providing guidance and assisting sellers to get their home SHOW ready, developing a marketing plan for clients, draft and prepare offers and paperwork, negotiating all offers, and communicating with all parties to ensure a smooth closing process,” said Woodruff.
Using the other resources available to them can also be useful. Resources like Caring.com can give a person a sense of belonging to the communities they are considering moving to. Caring.com has several outlets for older men and women as well as for their family members. From articles regarding preparations to even benefits for the elderly, Caring.com has what elderly people need to make a safe decision on their next steps.
Making a move can be stressful and confusing, using available resources is something that can put someone’s mind at ease.
