Re-Defining the Home Selling Process
Many older adults want and NEED to sell their homes for top dollar, ensuring their hard-earned equity ends up in their own pockets and not those of investors or others looking to make a profit. As the real estate market continues to change our process of supporting mature sellers stays the same: putting YOU at the center of the equation. Lauren and Erin discuss the factors needed for a successful transition and ultimate home sale for older adults and why the various techniques used matter greatly.
Feeling Out of Alignment?
The first step to thriving later in life is to identify what areas of your life are holding you back, where you want to go and what action items must be taken to get you there. Many people feel that “something” isn’t working but aren’t always able to identify what it is. In this episode, Erin and Lauren highlight how aligning your actions with your ultimate goals allows you to shift your mind-set and create real change in your life.
GET IT OFF YOUR CHEST! You can’t go over it, you can’t go under it, you must go through it. Whatever is holding you back from moving forward in your life it’s time to bring it to the surface and process it in-order-to move past it. Finding your supportive tribe is the first step in establishing the trust needed to begin your cathartic experience. Tap into your inner knowing to gain the answers within yourself.
Patience is a Virtue, Especially Later in Life
When you have fallen from the grace of patience, know you are not alone! It is not so easy to be patient with ourselves and others, especially as we age, and life brings a variety of new challenges.
