Many seniors are looking to move to smaller, often more affordable accommodations but have a current home full of treasures, furniture, clothing and household items collected over the years. Many seniors don't have family in the local area and the thought of sorting, packing and de-cluttering often is overwhelming and adds to the stress of moving to a new home.
We have found great success in working with our clients by offering an additional fee for service where we will work with them to begin the sorting process of "keep, giveaway, garbage and goodwill". Our clients have indicated that the service has been invaluable and helps them break down an often daunting job into smaller tasks within a set timeline. They have also indicated it is actually more fun and easier with someone guiding them and doing a lot of the bending, lifting, lugging etc.
Not only does this prepare our client to have fewer items to move into their smaller home, but it allows for the current home to be cleaner, clutter-free and ready to be placed on the market.
It's the small things that help make the real estate experience an outstanding one.
