“Downsizing to a new home can be very overwhelming. When people talk to you about downsizing and moving to a 55+ community what are their concerns and how do you approach this?” Asks Kim. “Many people who are considering moving have been in their home for over 30 years. A lot has changed in the real estate business during that time, and frankly, sometimes, people don’t know where to start” says Sandy. At Ken Miller & Associates, a real estate agent will sit down with clients and provide them with a check list to get started. The lending process is explained and also how to get started downsizing from your long time home, to a smaller, more suitable home that fits your current lifestyle.
