Is it time to sell the family home?

Barbara Ziegenbusch is a Senior Real Estate Specialist with experience in senior’s real estate issues.

Are you thinking of moving to a retirement community or moving in with your adult son or daughter who can help with your needs as you grow older?

You may be considering leaving the family home with all that it represents—the place where children were raised; the safety and security of a family unit; the physical space where your oldest and dearest memories reside.

Many seniors would prefer to continue living in their own home or aging in place. Sometimes, circumstances work against those preferences:

  • Home maintenance becomes a burden
  • A major life event forces considering a move
  • An aging parent wants to live closer to adult children or other caretakers
  • Financial concerns make it difficult to keep the home
  • Support services are needed that are not available at home

Whatever the reason, there may come a time when parents, along with their adult children, consider selling the family home.  As a Seniors Real Estate Designee (SRES), Barbara Ziegenbusch can help navigate you through this process so you can stay focused on what matters most-family.
