Are you a Senior and thinking of selling your family home?

Are you thinking of downsizing  to an adult community or perhaps moving in with an adult son or daughter who can help as you grow older?

Leaving the family home is a major life decision and can be one of the most difficult moves you will ever make. For both seniors and their adult children, the home represents deep emotional bonds, precious memories, security, the children growing up, community ties and lifelong friends. The thought of planning such a move can be overwhelming. 

Many seniors prefer to stay in their own home as they age, but sometimes, circumstances can work against those preferences:

  • Home maintenance becomes a burden.

  • A major illness or life event forces a move.

  • A single level home without stairs may be needed.

  • A desire live closer to adult children or other potential caretakers.

  • Financial considerations make it difficult to keep the home.

  • Support services are needed that are not available in 
    a home environment.

Whatever the reason...... there may come a time when parents along with their adult children, consider selling and moving on.

Selling A Senior's Home Is Different

Selling a senior's home can be much more complicated, due to the number of unique issues
and decisions.

Sometimes the difficulty is due to the number of people involved.  Although seniors usually make the decision to sell, it is not uncommon for the adult children to help them sort through a large number of issues:


  • Is moving the best alternative?  If so where? Have other options been explored?

  • Are close family members on board with a decision to sell?

  • What is the best way to downsize a lifetime's worth of possessions and family heirlooms?

  • What are the tax-related implications of a sale?

  • What effects might a sale have on future income?



If you are 62 or older, a reverse mortgage can be a very useful retirement planning tool.
