What to do with your loved one’s home if they need to move into senior care?
January 18, 2021
You love your family, so it’s no surprise that you want the best possible quality of life for them. When someone you love gets sick or can no longer live on their own- you face a myriad of decisions and have to make some big choices in a short amount of time. This may mean deciding to transition them from living in their family home to a senior living facility or even moving them into your own home.
While these significant changes are already overwhelming enough, you also have to decide what to do with their home, and you probably have a lot of questions like, should you rent it out? Is it best to sell it? Who will take care of the repairs? How long will it take to sell? How can you pay for their care if the home takes too long to sell? And while these are all very valid questions and concerns, we are here to tell you that the home selling process doesn’t have to be so stressful. However, we do get where you are coming from. Selling a home the traditional way comes with a lot of extra expenses and stress. You have repairs, extra fees, and countless paperwork to worry about.
Another concern you might have is the amount of time it takes to sell your home. Did you know that the amount of time from decision to sale is, on average, eight months? There are costly home repairs to manage, home showings, dealing with appraisals, closings, and fickle buyers. And the worst part is you will be dealing with the home selling process while juggling your loved ones' transition to a senior living facility and possibly handling their financial situation.

But what if their home is in disrepair?

We work WITH you and FOR you to ensure a fair, fast, efficient process that you can feel good about. Our goal is always to provide peace of mind and improve your family’s quality of life through an honest and upfront process.
Can you really give me a quick closing date?
Yes! We work with your situation and can offer a closing date in as little as seven days. If your family member is struggling with medical care costs, the quick closing will benefit this situation.
