5 Reasons to use an SRES Realtor

A Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) is a REALTOR® who is uniquely qualified to assist seniors in housing sales and purchases. A prb.org report notes that the number of Americans ages 65 and older is on course to more than double from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060. The real estate community recognizes this growing population and is offering the benefit of an SRES with unparalleled training and experience in seniors real estate.

As someone over the age of 50, your needs aren’t the same as a first-time homebuyer or seller. You might be looking to retire, downsize, or join an active adult community. Whatever reason you may have for considering a move, you can depend on an SRES® to guide you through every part of the process.
1) An SRES helps you manage the financial and emotional challenges of selling a long-held family home

2)They create a customized plan to market and sell your property– as a senior or adult child of senior parents you may need your home to sell quickly, yet maximize the cost so funds are available for retirement or assisted living arrangements.

3)The correct communication: SRES Realtors communicate with seniors the way they want to be communicated with. Many homeowners want/need to have personal visits versus email, text, or even phone.

4. Takes a no-pressure approach and will take the time needed to listen and advise so the client is comfortable and confident in their choices.

5) Can interact easily with all generations, including seniors, adult children and caretakers. Other family members may be involved in the decision making process when listing the property. An SRES Realtor is prepared and knowledgeable about properties as part of a trust, or properties as part of an inheritance.
