Finding The Right Real Estate Agent – A Guide For Seniors.
When considering buying or selling a home, seniors have a special set of needs that may not apply to others in the real estate market. The first time home buyer has a certain set of needs. Young families with small children have another. Seniors fall into a whole different category. It’s also important to understand that those in the 50 – 64 age group have very different needs than those in the 65+ category.
It is important then, to make sure that the real estate professional you choose has the ability to meet the needs of the senior seller or buyer.
Most Agents Are Simply Interested In Putting Your Home On The Market And Getting It Sold…
But there is much more to the process than that. Seniors need an agent who is willing to “go the extra mile” to make the transaction as stress-free as possible.
Some Senior sellers may be in the process of “scaling down”, moving to a smaller home, retirement community or an assisted care facility. The agent you choose needs to understand your requirements and work in with you and your family to figure out what you will need to take with you.
It’s Important That You Feel Comfortable With The Agent You Choose.
The agent needs to know what the market may demand. Minor maintenance and a simple fresh coat of paint may be all you need to make the property appealing before putting it on the market.
An agent dealing with seniors need to be understanding of special health needs which may be in the home. If health issues are a concern in your home make sure that you have an agent who will show compassion and concern in trying to show the home at convenient times for the family members with those special needs.
It’s important that you feel comfortable with the agent you choose. When searching for the right agent, try to find an agent who has had experience in working with other seniors. If you feel pushed by an agent, or rushed, as though they don’t have time for you, perhaps you don’t have the right person.
