Are you ready to downsize the home and start a new chapter in life? Good for you! Knowing what to do next can be a challenge, though. How do you get your home ready to sell? Where do you plan on transitioning to? Which Arcadia real estate agents should you trust? Too often, the purchase of a new home is geared toward young families just starting out. What about the millions of people who have gone through this stage in life, raised their families and are now ready to downsize their house or home? This chapter is just as exciting as the first, but there are different factors to consider. No longer do you need the large fenced in yard or finished basement. It’s time to simplify things!
Working with a Downsizing House Real Estate Agent
Whether you want to downsize your home or your parents’ home, it’s helpful to work with a team of Arcadia and Pasadena real estate agents who specialize in housing sales and purchases for older adults. Natalie Aguilar Vogie is a Seniors Real Estate Agent (SRES) who works with adults 55 and older and their families. She knows what it takes to sell and purchase a home later in life. Working with Natalie helps overcome many of the challenges faced by older adults in transition. The property may be in distress and need fixing up before being listed. Families need help sorting through years of documents and other belongings. Downsizing your home for retirement is also emotionally and mentally draining. A lifetime of memories is inside the home, which is why this process requires patience, compassion and understanding.
Downsizing Services Offered
Natalie has an extensive network of professionals she has acquired through her 10 years as a Pasadena real estate agent. She can offer just about any service needed to successfully stage, list and sell a home quickly and for top dollar. Natalie will oversee many of these services on her own, especially if the family cannot be present. Other services, such as packing and moving, will be hired out to a separate company. You can expect superior service from the third parties that are chosen on your behalf. Below are the resources that Natalie can assist with with.
Packing and sorting
Estate and garage sales
Sorting, organizing and scanning documents
Packing and moving services
Moving day help
Encouraging Families to Work Together
Natalie is also proud to bring families together. It’s common for adult siblings to disagree over certain aspects of this transition, whether it’s where Mom or Dad will live or how assets will be divided. Adult children will fight over the smallest things, so it’s helpful to have a third party around to help families work together, not against each other. For these purposes, Natalie is happy to refer families to her network of CPAs, financial planners, probate lawyers and more. Whether you are looking to start a new chapter in your life, or you plan to help Mom or Dad with downsizing their home, you do not have to go through the process alone. With Natalie by your side, you will receive highly personalized support and guidance. Together, we will get your home sold quickly and for the most money possible so that you can start a new chapter in life!
