Sudbury MA, November 2, 2006 -- It was great fun presenting "Where to go and how to get there" to a group of about 35 attendees at the monthly of the Sudbury Villagers - a social club made up of women in town, mostly Seniors who have lived in their homes for many years, some for decades.
The group was very interested to hear about housing options in town, what the market is doing, what they need to do to get their homes ready to sell. I spoke about watching out for fraud - seniors are such a target audience these days; environmental/EPA factors - lead, radon, carbon-monoxide, Title V. Financing was something most hadn't considered - most assumed they would sell their homes and pay cash - I suggested that may not be the best option, depending on taxes, how much cash they need on hand...lots of factors to consider, no one-size fits all. And finally, while everyone knows that when the sell a house they hire a real estate agent to represent them, most people still don't realize that as buyers, they can and should also have a buyer agent/broker represent them. And, especially with new contruction to help them to not ovr-buy!
The attendees asked some thoughtful questions, and everyone left feeling like they learned something. Hopefully, the information will help reduce some of the stress that happens during the process. My biggest point was being prepared will make things easier!
