Moving is a daunting task for everyone. But, often Los Angeles county seniors have lived in their home longer, which makes moving even more difficult. Seniors often feel so overwhelmed they simply don’t know where to begin. Many families no longer reside in close proximity and are unable to provide the physical support needed. Also, some seniors have no surviving children, or their children are unable or even unwilling to help.
Ideally, the attainment of senior status represents a time of less responsibility. The aim is to remain healthy, independent, and active. Sometimes the goal is to travel, or move closer to family. For others it’s about “right sizing”, creating an environment more conducive to their current and anticipated life needs. Other seniors simply want a stronger safety net.
Whatever their personal goals, it’s an advantage for Seniors to work with an Realtor who understands mature clients and the complexities involved.
