In a nutshell, I went through the 5 simple steps to downsizing, answered questions and gave real life examples for each step. Unlike so many seniors who have downsized in the past, there are now specific businesses designed to make the process as seamless as possible. In fact, the owners of Carefree Moves, Dee and Cynthia, spoke about organizing the move by helping to choose what will fit in your new residence, pack up your belongings and even unpack them at your new home.
Several of the attendees asked us, “Where were you when I last moved? I could have used you!” We look forward to helping them now.
Merrill Gardens hosted the event. Many of the people who attended had never been to Merrill Gardens so it was great exposure for them. At the end of the presentation, Maria from Merrill Gardens gave tours of the community.
We have several future seminars scheduled. If you have an interest in attending, let us know. We are also happy to give a one on one consultation about the housing market, preparing your home for sale and the steps to downsizing.
