These topics, along with others, will be presented in the upcoming 55 Plus Seminar Series as 90-minute monthly educational seminars continue into June at Laura Bush Community Library. Adults 55+, seniors, and caregivers are invited to attend the free “55 Plus Seminar Series” to learn the actual facts about issues related to home ownership and post-retirement downsizing in the Austin area.
There are a lot of myths out there about what you must or “should” do in order to sell your home. The myths are perpetuated by shows on television featuring real estate agents with pearly white teeth and selling tiny homes for 2 million dollars. Real estate agents further confuse the issue because they advertise homes as “totally remodeled” and make it seem as though these homes are the only ones available.
During this 90-minute panel presentation, they will discuss the pro’s and con’s of fixing up a home to sell, as well as the pitfalls and benefits to selling “as-is.”
Here are just a few of the questions that will be answered: What is necessary to sell a home in the Austin City metropolitan area? What does “as-is” really mean and does it make financial sense to sell that way? How do I know if an as-is cash offer is a fair offer?
This series of candid conversations and expert panel discussions about the unique and often complex issues facing long-time homeowners is to be moderated by Cyndi Cummings CSHP, SRES, CSA, considered a leading authority on issues related to downsizing, later-life relocation and (55+) senior living solutions in Austin. As a Certified Senior Housing Professional, Cyndi Cummings has made it her mission to educate and guide both consumers and professionals on best practices related to post-retirement living.
“Understanding whether staying in your current home or making a move would be better for you, requires information from trusted resources,” said Cummings. “Many seniors have no idea what is available to them, how much it will cost, or the process for making all the pieces fit together. We want to give them helpful information, introduce them to information that can help to answer their questions. Beyond helping with immediate needs, our intention is give individuals and families the both direction and confidence so they feel empowered when the time comes to make a major life decision.”
The 55 plus Seminar Series continues with “Selling As-Is” on October 23rd and Living, “Dying & Leaving a Legacy” on November 27th. The remaining calendar is located at www.55plusseminarseries.com.
There is no cost to attend for those age 55 or older. Reservations can be made by calling 512-937-2772 or online at www.55plusseminarseries.com. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
