Buying or selling your home is a momentous occasion, especially for Baby Boomers and seniors 50+ looking to sell the family home. You'll want a knowlegable and trustworthy realtor on your side to guide you through this pivotal time and ensure that you're being provided all the real estate options available to make the tranisition to the next phase of life a graceful one. If you're a senior in the greater Orange County or Los Angeles County areas and are looking to make this transition, then you need a real estate agent who is a designated Seniors Real Estate Specialists (SRES®) and will provide the type of care and guidance you need and deserve during this life-changing experience. Here are three reasons why using an SRES® for your senior real estate needs is the right decision to make.
1. They're called "Specialists" for a reason. "SRES® designees are certified senior specialists and astute to the financial and emotional challenges senior clients face when they sell a long-held family home," according to the SRES® site. The Seniors Real Estate Specialists designation is only awarded to realtors who have undergone and passed rigorous training that equips them to become "specialists" for late-in-life clients looking to sell the family home. SRES® agents are knowlegable (and sensitive) to what it takes to make these transactions as seamless and graceful as possible.
2. They're a hub of knowledge for real estate options for seniors. An SRES® agent will provide seniors with valuabe information and options regarding reverse mortgages, the use of pensions, funding retirement, downsizing the right way, and what applicable tax exemptions are available to senior citizens when selling the family home and transitioning to their new home.
3. They'll be be there to guide you and your family every step of the way. Not only will an SRES® realtor be there to listen to your every need and provide unprecedented communication throughout the transaction, but an "SRES® designees can tap their network and put you in touch with qualified home inspectors, movers, attorneys, CPAs and other experts."
