Why every Real Estate Agent needs a Senior Move Manager
By 2030, seniors will account for one-fifth of the total U.S. population – 79.1 million. And a large number of them will be downsizing their homes.
As a realtor, you know what you need to do to get a home ready to sell. But you may not be ready for everything that needs to happen to get the sellers ready to move.
That’s when – and why – a Senior Move Manager can become your best friend. Here are just a few of the ways a Senior Move Manager can help you.
Getting the sellers in a “move mindset”.
Seniors can significantly underestimate the time it will take to get their home ready to sell, and easily get overwhelmed when timelines get tight. A Senior Move Manager can help your sellers create a schedule they can keep, so you can get their home on the market on time.
Acting as an intermediary with the family.
When adult children are in charge of selling their parents’ home they often disagree about what needs to be done to to get the house ready. A Senior Move Manager can facilitate a family discussion and find the way for everyone to move ahead together.
Coordinating move details.
Every move has its challenges. With a Senior Move Manager in place, your sellers have wrap-around help to answer questions and resolve issues. And you’ve got time to do what you do best.
Connecting you to new clients.
A Senior Move Manager is a great resource to other professionals in the senior community as well as a great referral sources for new clients.
These are just some of the ways a Senior Move Manager — especially an experienced and accredited one like Maria Quinby of On The Move — can be a great help to you.
