Tips for Seniors on Tackling the Three Big Stages of Moving

Blog / 24.04.20170 comments

Moving can be a stressful event for anyone, but for senior citizens, it can come with its own set of challenges. Seniors often struggle with mobility issues, and on top of that have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. Each move has three major stages: the packing, the actual move, and the unpacking. Here are some tips to make each stage more manageable.


The packing

Every senior should take a move as an opportunity to downsize. Not only does it cost more to move more items, but part of what makes living independently a challenge for seniors is the sheer amount of upkeep they’re responsible for.

One tip is to make a log of your most important items. Before you even begin to pack, write down what you have in your home that you can’t live without. This will be an accurate list of your prized and necessary possessions, as you’re scribbling it blind (without seeing the item first and experiencing that bias). Once you’ve begun to pack, think about things in terms of “what would I save in a fire.” It may sound morbid, but it works.

Dealing With an Unwilling Seller

Blog / 17.04.20170 comments

Many home buyers will come across what seems like the perfect property, but for some reason, the seller does not seem to be on board. In the world of real estate, love for a property doesn’t mean anything until the very last papers are signed, and a seller is not obligated under any conditions to sell to any particular buyer or honor an offer. Under the conditions in today’s market and depending on the location of the property, the seller may want to see if they can get a bidding war, or they would rather have an all cash offer so that they can have a faster close.

As frustrating as it can be, if you have your heart set on a certain home, it may be worthwhile to keep pushing for the sale. If it doesn’t work out, you will still learn about the homebuying process and have information to use in your next offer.

Go to Your Max

It is often tempting to try to play the game of making a lowball offer to see what the seller counters with, and then going back and forth. But if you are emotionally invested in a property, then it’s time to skip the negotiations. If you want the home, don’t beat around the bush for it – just come out with your highest offer. At that point, it’s up to the seller.
