You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who says that moving is fun.
Even the most organized person must go through the ritual of finding a new place, financial considerations, getting rid of unwanted items, hiring movers or rallying friends to help, packing and unpacking their belongings…once you get started the list can seem endless.
According to mental health experts, moving is one of life’s most stressful events. And when you factor in the reason for your move — divorce, job loss, foreclosure, death of a loved one, or another situation — you can see how the stress just piles on.
But one of the things sellers can do to ease their mind is contact The Sierra Group, LLC, which offers the fastest, most convenient way to sell one’s house, “as is,” for a fair price, and on the date of the seller’s choosing. The company also provides the seller with additional benefits like taking care of any needed repairs, buying their house right away by utilizing private funds to close escrow when it is convenient for the seller, and no commissions or closing costs.
“These are things that you can’t put a price on,” said Ben Souchek, a principle of The Sierra Group. “There is a lot to be said about the ‘costs’ of a great deal of stress, anxiety, and physical exhaustion. Our goal is to relieve the seller of these burdens, allowing them to more fully focus on their future dreams and goals.”
Downsizing is another reason why many people, whether baby boomers who have just sent the last child off to college, or seniors moving to a smaller home, apartment or care facility look to The Sierra Group to help alleviate the economic burden of ownership. They offer a service called Home Downsizing Solutions which also gives the seller up to 90 days, or sometimes more, to make their downsizing transition, including allowing them to leave behind anything they can’t or do not want to take with them.
Souchek details this and more in his book, The Secrets to Downsizing, which provides valuable information for anyone thinking of downsizing, whether or not they have done it before.
“Your house is your most important investment, and selling it the way that best suits your needs is an equally important investment in your peace of mind.” said Souchek.
“As a licensed realtor, and working with other realtors in different markets, what I’ve found is that real estate is certainly not a one-size-fits-all operation. That is why we offer a wide range of personal, customizable services and options that can be tailored to fit a buyer or seller’s unique situation, needs and desires.”
According to Souchek, there are a lot of moving and transition services out there that can help with the traditional downsizing activities. But there is a downside.
“Some of these companies do a really great job in these areas, but most people don’t realize what this involves until they get into the process. And the costs can add up very quickly,” Souchek said. “So, we include a moving allowance of up to $1,000 to help defray the costs of these services for the seller, if needed. We tell people that selling their home to us is more beneficial than they may initially think it is.”
Souchek and his team also work with a strong network of real estate agents who specialize in, and/or have their ears to the grindstone around new home communities, apartments, condos, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and other residential options.
“It has been very exciting to see people making their downsizing transition with more ease and peace of mind,” Souchek said. “We do everything we can to set ourselves apart in the market, and the testimonials we receive speak to that.”
