Move while you're still young enough to enjoy it!

Normally, when you're selling one home, you're enthusiastically planning for the purchase of another.

Not always.

Forty years was a very long time to live in one place. All their life cycle milestones were tied to this residence.  Every displayed memento needing to be wrapped, sold or trashed unleashed a torrent of near- paralyzing memories. Packing up was excruciating. 

 

Picture elderly clients with serious health concerns. Leaving the house normally meant a visit to the doctor. A flight of steps and practically any distance at all needed to be avoided at all costs. Their minds were on other issues - pressing issues like estate planning - serious issues - matters of life and death. 

My home visits needed to be brief. Sitting for any length of time was difficult for them and a limited attention span resulted from their obvious pain. The information I brought yielded little more than a cursory glance. Interest in the recommendations I made was practically nonexistent.

However devastating it was for them to leave a home they owned for so many decades, this property was like a noose around their necks and the time had come to let it go. 

 

Don't let this happen to you.

The perfect home for my family on Long Island's south shore came with a list of must haves. For our purposes, an updated kitchen or baths, while a real bonus, were negotiable. Rather, it was location that was much more important. The perfect house… more
