With dozens of senior realtors serving the Colorado Springs community, you should have no problem finding one that can meet your specific needs with sensitivity, respect, and compassion. These trained professionals maintain a database of specialists to ensure that the difficult process of buying and selling a home is smooth for both you and your family.
Senior realtors are trained and undergo extensive reviews on the senior housing market as well as the sensitive needs of their clientele. These agents are designated Senior Real Estate Specialists (SRES) through the National Association of Realtors. Colorado agents can also hold a certification through the Seniors Real Estate Institute as a Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP).
A senior realtor will tap the services of other local professionals in order to meet your needs. These professionals include social workers, elder-law attorneys, financial advisors, senior movers, senior downsizing companies, estate sales companies, and professional organizers. If you do not feel you need their services now, you can always contact your senior realtor in the future for recommendations.
Senior realtor customers in Colorado Springs are typically age 50 and older. The SRES Market Size reported that in the last 20 years, the senior buyer and seller market has doubled for those seniors age 55 and over. This growing industry means more certified senior realtors in Colorado.
Senior realtors can call on their network to provide customers with services even if the clients are not selling their home. You can ask about companies that install safety rails, walk-in tubs, and wheelchair ramps, among other additions.
Senior realtors can begin early in preparing your home for sale. They may make recommendations to increase the value or appearance of your home or suggest financial products like a reverse mortgage to use the equity in your home to finance your long-term care. These agents have been trained to demonstrate patience and compassion during this time and understand that some items and rooms of your home may hold sentimental value.
