Moving is a daunting task for everyone. But, often, Los Angeles county seniors have lived in their homes longer, which makes moving even more difficult. Seniors often feel so overwhelmed they don’t know where to begin. Many families no longer reside nearby and cannot 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 want a stronger safety net.
Whatever their personal goals, it’s advantageous for Seniors to work with a Realtor who understands mature clients and the complexities involved. Phyllis Harb, a Senior Real Estate Specialist, is certified to meet the needs of Los Angeles County Seniors. Seniors contemplating buying, selling, or relocating should insist on the experience and knowledge of a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) to help guide them through the process.
