The average person thinks that one real estate agent is just like the next one, but you may be surprised to learn that there are quite a few differences between them. Most realtors list and sell your home or condo and or help you find your next home. But DMV Living is quite a unique real estate company we specialize in seniors and those seniors who are making the life altering decision to move into a senior community, that specialization encompasses many things. For example, at DMV Living we are three generations of family members whose careers in real estate have been spent helping seniors. What specifically does helping seniors mean, I am glad you asked and here are the numerous specifics as well as a realtor who has been certified as a Senior Real Estate Specialist. How does an SRES agent help you than an agent that has not been certified as a specialist.
Benefits of using an SRES agent include:
- Customized approach to your living situation that fits in with your overall life plan.
- Awareness of options like senior-based communities and aging in place needs.
- Multiple choices that help reduce out-of-pocket expenses, acquire cash, and create or delay income streams or get financial aid for when you need it at a later date. This can help you remain independent longer.
DMV Living provides training to senior living communities sales team to best help them close the potential resident but also make sure that their community is the best fit geographically, financially, needs and personality to make sure that it is the perfect fit. We also work very closely with our community partners and help them target prospects by holding various types of marketing events such as Downsizing Lunch & Learns, we also provide the communities with the resources to reach out to their prospects with special themed events, Garden Party, High Tea, Author Signings, Trivia Night etc. (All based on what the community is interested in doing) we will create the event and the invitations and help them market to those potential new residents geared toward success.
At DMV Living we offer 90 day no cost Property Management to seniors who may be at a senior community for respite or just to try it out. It is a huge decision to leave your 5-bedroom home of say 50 years, leave your memories and most of your possessions behind to transition into a much smaller space at a senior community.
Another part of our services is partnering with the best Move Management firms in the area who will work with each senior carefully and compassionately from downsizing into their new home. They will help the client sort through their belongs and help with creating items to take, donate, auction or trash and then set them up 100% in their new homes with pictures hung and the bed made.
One of the most important services DMV Living provides is helping the seniors with a life plan, many seniors may think that they can’t afford to move into a senior community. Their only asset may be their home and they don’t realize that if they paid $60,000 50 years ago today it may be worth 1.2 million. We help them create a plan to include how much their home is worth and what they need to get into the community that they have selected. We have partnered with numerous firms that will take that burden and stress off their shoulders.
Another service we offer is helping the senior get their home ready for sale and at top dollar, that may include a kitchen or bathroom renovation or a simple sink replacement. Either way we work closely with contractors who also specialize in working with seniors. They are priced fairly and have the patience that is required to help the seniors work through this emotional process.
We are here and ready to help with whatever stage of the process you are currently at. Give us a call today at.
