Let’s face it, you just can’t beat the joy that a beautiful garden, the smell of freshly cut grass, or the cool shade of a tree can bring. Often these are the fruits of your labor, for months or even years, to cultivate a greenscape that suits your needs, desires, and lifestyle.
Each season of the year requires a certain amount of time and energy to “plant the seeds” that come to fruition in the spring and summer months. For many seniors, the same amount of energy they once had to dedicate to a yard may have diminished considerably. Or perhaps there is now simply too much that needs constant care. And while some seniors may hire a lawn service to care for their yards, those costs do add up over time.
Taking this, and other potential issues like outgrowing the home you are in, accepting a job transfer, experiencing financial difficulties or a health challenge, or retiring into consideration, it may be time to looking into downsizing. The Sierra Group can help.
The Sierra Group 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.
Never miss a local story.
“Providing honest solutions and solving any problems that arise for this type of sale is paramount,” said Ben Souchek, a principle of The Sierra Group, LLC. “Unfortunately, there are a number of companies out there that are not so transparent, or do not provide much information to the seller. We do everything we can to set ourselves apart in the market.”
Among the benefits The Sierra Group provides are taking care of any needed repairs, allowing sellers to leave behind anything they can’t or do not want to take, utilizing private funds to close escrow when it is convenient for the seller, moving flexibility, and no commissions or closing costs.
“Every buyer and seller is different,” said Souchek, “so we address our concern for the individual by visiting with our clients, learning about their goals, and how we can help with the moving process. The transition should be painless, and we’re interested in helping through as many steps of the process as we can.”
According to Souchek, downsizing doesn’t have to mean leaving your green thumb behind.
“If you still want a garden or to take care of a yard, albeit a smaller one, you can find a smaller home or senior living community that that allows you to continue to pursue that passion,” Souchek explained. “Some communities feature a communal garden where you can put your green thumb to work without having to worry about all the extra maintenance that goes along with it, whether it be summer or winter.”
It can be difficult for someone to say goodbye to a yard they have cared for over the years, said Souchek, but a new, smaller yard or a community garden is an opportunity to make new memories and plant new flowers to see what blooms next. Souchek and his team work with a large number of real estate agents who specialize in, and/or have their noses to the grindstone around a wide array of residential options.
I've been in the home buying business for more than 19 years, and I constantly try to do things to set my company apart and make us the best solution for someone downsizing,” Souchek said. “I set very high standards of professionalism and honesty for this business, and overall, sellers seem to really appreciate the benefits that we can offer, and for good reason.”
Souchek said that education is key, which is why he wrote, “The Secrets to Downsizing,” which provides great information for anyone thinking of downsizing, whether they have done it before, if they have never sold a house and don’t know what’s in store for them.
“We encourage anyone who is thinking about downsizing to come to us first to see what resources we have available,” Souchek said. “It’s critical to have access to the resources that will make the process as easy as possible. We’ll use our network to get you in touch with the information you need, and can assist you every step of the way!”
