SELLING WITH SENIORS

SELLING WITH SENIORS

 

"This amount represents a lifetime's worth of savings," is a sentiment you may often hear expressed by a senior interested in purchasing his final home and, it really is his biggest financial investment at that stage of life.

No doubt about it, it's a long, slow process. Understandably, seniors do not wish to feel rushed. They want to take their time making this grand decision and they want to completely trust the person they've hired for the job.

Home with amenities are attractive to them. They'd like to keep up a certain quality of life without having to worry about common maintenance issues. Other like-minded couples of a similar age range, in close proximity, are great for a built-in social life and a feeling of community.

 

 

55+ Community in Nassau County on Long Island

 

 

 

 

 

There is a huge demand for 55+ communities. Most are selling out as quickly as they are built.  Jill Sackler, SRES, Long Island's South Shore Real Estate Agent

 

 

 

Until now, new 55+ communities on Long Island tended to be farther east and north, making their proximity to Manhattan a bit of a commute.

 

 

 

There's been tremendous interest in newly built and gated 55+ communities, geared towards active adults, that can boast a more accessible location.   Jill Sackler, SRES, Long Island's South Shore Real Estate Agent

 

 

 

Dutchgate is such a community and it's still affordable. You can take advantage of all the amenities it has to offer and make it to the City in time for an evening show.
