Do you know an older adult who was planning a pivotal year, but feels like everything is on hold while we trudge forward against uncertain times? We get it – and we are here to help! A major media source recently reported that Baby Boomers are more likely to shelter in place longer even as reopening procedures take hold, but we firmly believe that you can take care of your health today AND plan for your best tomorrow. Whether you were planning to look at some active senior communities, wanting to start the decluttering and downsizing process or just about to list your home – we are here to help you keep your life and sanity on track.
“I AM READY TO EXPLORE MY OPTIONS.”
The good news is – you still can! If you have toyed with the idea of moving into a condo, renting an apartment or entering a senior community, virtual tours offer a sneak peek into your next place without leaving your current one. You can also still drive through potential neighborhoods and areas to see what you love, what you don’t and what questions you have! Speaking of questions… experienced agents (like us!) are often happy to connect you with clients who have made a similar move; we know we have many older adult clients who would be happy to share where they moved and what they loved about it. You can explore your options and you do not have to do it alone.
“I WANT TO DECLUTTER AND GET RID OF STUFF.”
There actually may be no better time than the present to tackle this project. If too much stuff is causing too much stress (moving or not!), our friends at T-O-P Move Management have some great tips to help. They recently published a brand-new blog titled “Diving Into Downsizing While Sheltering In Place” and even mentioned two local junk removal services whom are offering no-contact pick-up!
“I DON’T KNOW IF I SHOULD STILL LIST MY HOME.”
If you were just about to interview agents to list your home, we would advise that you still consider it! While many expected home sales to pause much longer, pent-up demand in Silicon Valley is still here. With even less inventory than pre-COVID-19 times, many sellers are receiving multiple offers with great terms that meet their needs. The revised Realtor.com Housing Forecast predicts increased activity in late-summer and fall, and we would concur not to wait until year end. Low rates are also a driving force for many serious buyers right now – so please weigh your options and let us know if you need help. (This is not a solicitation of business if you are already working with an agent.)
If you feel ‘stuck’ or know someone who has questions and needs help finding answers, we would be honored to assist.
All our best,
