For those of you who have lived in your home for 20 years or more, you may have noticed that your yard is getting larger and harder to keep up, and the stairs may seem a bit more difficult to navigate. Your long-time neighbors may have moved away. Much of the space in your home has been transformed into storage lockers as you’ve collected ‘treasures’ from your relatives as well as keepsakes from your life’s experiences. There may have been a minor or major accident such as a fall. Winter has kept you somewhat isolated and your inner being thirsts for contact with others.

Looking back at my 35 plus years career in real estate sales here is what comes to mind. When discussing a move with mom and dad, there is never a right time or a wrong time…it is just time!
