Love is in The Air Moving on with No Regrets

Past clients called me to assist their parents. They needed to move them into an assisted living facility.  Mom had been ill for some time she had limited mobility and Dad had a heart condition. They lived in a two-story Row/townhouse with a finished lower level. The house was in disarray.

 

The roof had leaked they had it replaced. The damaged it caused was not fixed. There were water marks on the ceilings and walls. Plus the watermarks were on wallpaper so that made it look even worse. The carpets needed replacing but under the carpets were hardwood floors. The kitchen was original and untidy.  The other problem was that they had a potty downstairs.  The parents were not mobile and it really did not show well at all.

Dad was happy staying in the house. It was evident it was time to go. They would be happy in a place that had prepared meals and social life. One-floor living would be best for them this house was too much for them to upkeep. I had other clients in the same situation and when they had moved they were amazed at the quality of the life they had experienced. They loved it and never regretted their decision to move. Dad seemed more in tune to the move after our long talk 

 

We had decided to price it below market. It was in a wonderful neighborhood. I knew it would sell quickly if we priced it right. I explained everything to them. I am a straight up person. The house had good bones. Newer windows, heater and central air system, plus it had a  beautiful fenced yard and a deck. It just needed some updating and TLC in Real Estate language that is tender loving care.

The assisted living facility had a list of Realtors they recommend. They had made an appointment and felt funny not keeping it. Their daughter was upset with them but I gave them all the paperwork. Told them to fill out the disclosure and call me after they met with the other agent. The daughter thanked me

 

Three days later I received a call. All the papers were signed when could I pick them up.  In the meantime, I had spoken to agents in my office about this property . Many were interested in it for themselves to fix and flip . Another agent had a buyer who was an investor looking for a property to fix up and keep as a rental . 

 

In forty-eight hours we had five agreement of sales all cash as -is . They were very happy and the sale went smoothly without any problems. They are happy with their move with no regrets. I was able to get them more money than expected.

 

 I see pictures of them on Facebook enjoying themselves.

They are going places and having fun it makes my heart feel good

Great job, Hannah.  In cases like this, the big hurdle is to get the folks to accept the need to move into a care facility.

Gabe Sanders  Mom was all for the move it was Dad who had his back up. Once we jumped the hurdle The family sorted out the house on what was staying and what was coming to the new place Dad was getting excited. Now he is all "Smiles"

Makes one's heart feel good

Your impressions of this property and its potential were spot on, Hannah Williams ... well done!  It's a happy ending all around.  Mom and Dad are happier (and safer).  The home sold quickly.  You couldn't ask for better ...

Lisa Von Domek  It is difficult to leave a home that you can no longer maintain Especially when you have lived there for many years. When you finally make the decision to do so  it is nice when you can look back  without regret 

Thank you  for your kind words
