Senior Relocation Staging® and Downsizing
It is said that over the next 20 years, more seniors will be moving to various new homes for downsizing purposes than ever before. The baby boomers are retiring now and making that downsizing decision. Many homeowners have reached that "empty-nest" stage in their lives where they are ready to downsize or are just ready to enjoy a vibrant senior lifestyle without the expense and burden of maintaining a home.
Helping seniors move from that family home they have owned for a number of years to an independent living community, assisted living facility or just downsize to a condominium requires a special set of skills and a special kind of person. This type of transition can be a life-changing experience. It not only puts a lot of emotional decisions on the homeowner, but also the children assisting with the downsizing and/or relocation of their parent(s) or loved one(s). It becomes even more difficult when there are no children or the children live out of state and are not readily available to assist with this transition.
There is an undeniable need in the real estate industry for professionals who can dedicate their specialized skills and talents to this area of the population. Seeing this need was a great motivator to expand my training. In 2012, I earned my designation as an ASP®-SRS (Accredited Staging Professional-Senior Relocation Specialist). Highland Lakes Staging will assist in getting your home ready for the market. When you decide to put your home on the market, you have to remember one thing - it is no longer your home; it is now a product on the market. It is very difficult to detach from your home - especially one where you have raised your family. We will provide you with the information you need, walk you through the detailed steps, and help you prepare your home to appeal to the broadest market of prospective buyers.
