SRES and CAPS explained

SRES and CAPS explained
Those of us 50 years and older have a unique set of wants and needs.
We may be approaching retirement, or retired, caring for an aging parent, settling an estate, looking to downsize, or trying to find that perfect slice of paradise. 

If you’ve asked these questions I can help:

·         We want to keep our home and live in it as long as possible. Should we find another home or renovate?

·         Mom’s house is too much for her now, what are the options?

·         The next house we buy will be our last, how can we plan to age there safely?

·         Our parents don’t have enough equity or income to purchase something else, are there any alternatives?

As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Certified Aging in Place Professional and Senior Home Safety Advisor I will help you identify what makes the most sense.

Every family has its own concerns and priorities. I can help sort through the options.

Optimizing your next chapter in life
