Finding the right home in your late-in-life chapter can be unnerving, intimidating and at times seem impossible. The worst thing you can do is to procrastinate; the older you become, the harder it is. We know this personally because we are going through it ourselves. By planning ahead, you avoid being forced to make quick decisions. If emergency situations arise, those quick decisions are made even more difficult. By developing a plan before you need it, you have time to do your research and ensure that you select the best choice that suits your needs and desires. You have many options to choose from as shown below:
- Selling/Buying a Home to Downsize or Resize – We have 25+ years of experience buying and selling homes. If we list and sell your home, depending on the additional services, needed we charge a 6-7% commission. No payment is required until we sell your home. Services are provided at no charge up to closing date. We understand the process thoroughly, and our services come with a free home inspection. See available houses for sale here.
- Renting an Apartment, Freeing You of Maintenance Worries – We will refer you to a reputable apartment locator and then help you navigate that process and evaluate your options.
- Retirement Communities (Both Rentals and Buy-ins) – We provide tours and discuss many issues that need to be considered as you transition from home ownership to a retirement community. See local Birmingham retirement communities here. We also provide tours of retirement communities with no fees charged to you. The community pays the fee to Alabama Mature Moves. We promise to have no partiality to a particular community, focusing only on which community is the right fit for your needs.
- Aging-in-Place (AIP) – AIP involves staying in your current home. It can include home modifications so your home is hazard free and meets for your special needs. There are both positive and negative aspects to AIP, which we will help you evaluate. See additional information on the Pros and Cons of Aging-in-Place here.
Weighing these options can be confusing and complex. We are here to help. Contact us today to set up an initial planning meeting. A free consultation is provided to determine which package is best for your specific needs and to assist you with beginning your plan. A personalized Transitioning Package is available starting at $500, depending on number of services needed.
