If your elderly loved one is preparing to downsize, it’s essential for them to work with a professional real estate agent. Moving out from a family home can be a very traumatic experience. Moreover, the logistics of preparing for the sale of a lifetime’s worth of possessions can be daunting. Therefore, having a realtor who knows how to help seniors and their families through this transition is important.

Realtors with the right expertise and who are well connected to a network of experts in various areas will be able to offer advice or recommendations in both legal and financial aspects. In addition, they have the resources to make the move seamless to a new home or senior care facility.

While there are several reasons why you should hire a real estate agent, it can be overwhelming to choose the ideal professional from the abundant options available. To help find a qualified professional to help your loved one make a smooth transition, here’s a list of the top five important things to look for in a senior/ home care agency.

Good track record
Check with your specialist to see how many older adults they have helped to sell their homes. Ask them if they are equipped to handle your loved one’s unique situation. Also, make sure you work with an agent who has experience in your specific area. Ask the agent what unique issues could arise and how they would handle them.

Pay close attention to the agent and observe if they listen and ask you questions. Most successful professionals will have access to various technology, are aware of the market trend, and help achieve your specific goals. So take the time to find someone who is resourceful and can be trusted.

Buying or selling a home can be quite stressful. With so many older adults selling and searching for homes, it’s important to partner with the right real estate professional who is patient with you and your circumstances.

Look for certified real estate agents who have completed the educational and professional requirements. These certifications can be helpful if you’re looking for someone who caters more specifically to your needs.

Clear lines of communication
Lastly, you need to feel completely comfortable when talking and communicating with the real estate agent. They need to respond in a professional and friendly manner and be accessible to you as and when you need them.
