Some of the children of seniors who are about to move to their own home seek for the advice of Lakeland 55+ communities real estate brokers on how to make the move as smooth and as less stressful to the seniors as possible. The change of living independently is quite huge and planning it carefully can probably lessen the emotional effect of it to retirees. Some of the most useful tips which could help are the following:
Plan the move way ahead of time
The move should not be planned only when closing is at hand. As soon as the decision to buy a new home in an active adult community is made, a checklist of necessary To Dos when moving should be prepared. Along with this, an inventory of all the items in the home must be accomplished. This will make the next steps pretty doable.
Organize and downsize
Having boxes duly labelled is important so items can be properly assigned while packing. Categories may include items to move to the new home, left with the family, sold, donated or disposed. However, children must be sensitive when doing this as things will definitely bring back memories. Although downsizing is ideal to make the move easier, taking into consideration the feelings of the elderly is equally important.
Consider professional movers
If time is an issue and budget is not, then hiring professionals from moving companies which specialize moving retirees and the elderly may be ideal. Contact your Lakeland Florida real estate broker who may most likely have contacts with such companies. These hiring help offer expert assistance and can make the move systematic with less effort on the homebuyer’s part.
Make the elderly involved in the process
Apart from getting seniors involved in sorting things for the move, relatives can also try to tour their senior to the new home when they already feel like it prior to the move. Doing so means their opinion are valued and their emotions are being considered.
Decorate as close to the original home as possible
Taking photos of the old home, to note how furniture are arranged and how each room is designed can help in applying the old look in the new home. It is important that active adults feel like at home in their new abode. You can start by choosing a home in http://www.LakelandFloridaLiving.com which has very little difference from the retirees’ current home.
