Why Downsize With Us?
We like working with seniors because we ARE active seniors, and empty nesters. We know how difficult it is to let go of things which are sentimental to us, knowing that we all have to make changes and adjust. Please contact us, and we will make an appointment to talk about your home and, using recent sales data, give you an estimate of a reasonable list price for the property in today’s market and tips for some basic things to do to get more money for your family. We would also like to know how we can help in your transition, and where you would like to be in the next few months or years. We are glad to discuss options, and we never pressure you to move before you are ready. Sometimes it takes longer than first thought to come to terms with downsizing and get the home cleared and ready to put on the market. We work on your schedule, not on ours. Our conversations will always remain confidential.

Is there a possibility that your house will be involved in a divorce?
Sarah Rummage has the RCS-D (Real Estate Collaboration Specialist-Divorce) designation, and will meet with you to help you put together your documents prior to mediation, to either support keeping the home OR support selling the home. If you decide it is best to sell the home, it’s better to know it before going to mediation. Or, if it’s better to keep the home, you and your spouse can be confident in the decision. The initial consultation is at no cost to you.
Getting the Job Done
Having an experienced REALTOR® in your corner is especially important come negotiation time. This is more than just a financial arrangement; it’s an emotional one, as well. Selling your home can mean a job change, school changes for your children, and possibly leaving behind everything familiar to you and your family.

The difference between a staged home and an un-staged home can translate to thousands of dollars in the sale price. Clutter often makes rooms seem smaller, and overwhelming decorations may prevent a potential buyer from envisioning their own style in the room. This is a time to truly accept that you’re moving forward and allow yourself to picture your home through potential buyers’ eyes. Watch the below video to see how Home Staging can help buyers see your home as more attractive and help your home sell faster. When you are ready, we will guide you through the staging process so together we can prepare your home and get it SOLD!
Once you’ve finally accepted an offer on your home, inspections will be done to satisfy both the buyer and their mortgage lender. Many sale agreements are incredibly complex and feature a number of qualifications and fine print. We are familiar with these documents and can help guide you through the process.
Depending on how far you’re moving, you may require the assistance of a professional mover. Large, bulky items like television sets and furniture are not generally accepted by companies like FedEx or UPS. Consider not only the cost to move, but other factors like time and proper equipment. Though professional movers may seem pricey at first, when you look at the time and money to get similar results, you may re-consider. Be sure to get moving estimates in writing and compare several companies. Ask for discounts and be sure to only use licensed, bonded movers. Also make a checklist so that you’re organized and efficient. Or ask us! We often have knowledge of many local companies that can make your move easier.
