Your home is typically the biggest investment you have. It’s also the source of memories, the holder of cherished possessions, and so much more. It’s not bricks and mortar; it’s a living, breathing part of you. And now it’s time to move on to the next phase of your life. To guide you through this process, you must make sure you are hiring the best agent for your needs. Use these questions provided by Pivoting Aging Innovations Inc.; they’ll help you make the right choice. In real estate, as in life, not all things are created equal.
What makes you different?
Why should I trust you? Chances are you’re reading this report because someone you know said we focus on working with seniors, or maybe you and your family found us online. Throughout this article, and the other articles available to you, you will discover how the Accredited Senior Agent training that we’ve done will make this process as easy as it can be for you.
How many seniors do you regularly work with?
As Accredited Senior Agent’s we have focused our business on helping seniors make the often-difficult moves. Perhaps more important than how many seniors we work with is the success and satisfaction our senior clients and their families experience. If you would like references from some of the seniors, or their families that we have helped, we would be pleased to provide them for you.
I’m nervous. How long will all this take?
The answer to that question is really dependent on your circumstances, your wants and your needs. Because we can function as much as a counselor as a real estate agent, we will not pressure you or your family to make a decision. We are your resource, to help you make the best decision for you.
Will you give me time to have my family and/or lawyer look at the paperwork?
Of course we will. There have been lots of changes in real estate over the years, and things change all the time. Not only that, your lawyer knows you and your history, and may have specific information we need. We like to find out who your lawyer is, and then phone them to introduce ourselves, so we can emphasize to them that your best interests are our primary concern.
What do you know about my options for my future housing needs?
We are aware of the many options available to you. Between our own knowledge and that of my Network of Exceptional Specialists, we are on top of changes in your options. Whether it is financial assistance to help you stay where you are, or moving to any number of options, we have the expertise to make it as easy as possible for you.
I don’t know what to do – I’m so overwhelmed with my ‘stuff’. Can you help me?
We understand how you feel; as Master Accredited Senior Agents we are often asked this question. What other people have found is that, through our Network of Exceptional Specialists, we can help them through the process. Whether it’s helping get things to out-of-town family members, getting items to local donation centers and everything in between, we can help. Ask for our report ‘What to do with your ‘stuff’.
What have I not thought of that I should be asking you?
There are so many things to consider that we couldn’t possibly list them all here. We will walk you through some additional questions. When we are just talking, we will be making mental notes of the things you haven’t asked me, so we can make sure you are as informed as possible. When questions pop into your head, make sure you jot them down. Please, reach out at any time to discuss your real estate needs, or the needs of your aging loved ones.
