Although living in today’s fast-paced world where we want everything now – our food, technology, and so forth – there are still some things we try to put off until the last minute. Like moving. And if downsizing is part of your moving experience this time around, it can take on even greater significance.
According to Ben Souchek, a principle of The Sierra Group, LLC, a little planning can go a long way.
“One thing I’ve learned from my experiences helping people sell their homes and downsize to a new place, is that it can be at once exciting and a source of stress,” Souchek said. “Although downsizing is often an event my clients are genuinely looking forward to, the task loses its luster when you wait until an inopportune time to get started.”
Souchek and his team believe that providing honest solutions, particularly when problems arise, is paramount when working with clients, whether they be a buyer or seller.
“Unfortunately, there are a number of companies out there that are not so transparent, or do not provide much information to the seller,” Souchek said. “We do everything we can to set ourselves apart in the market, and the testimonials we receive speak to that.”
To illustrate, Gordon & Mrs. H. had this to say: “As Gordon and I embark on a new phase in our lives we have Ben & Sierra Group to thank for this blessing. We have sold three homes and have never been treated with such an informative & caring way as Ben exudes. He saved us so much grief (going through regular real estate procedures). Ben’s way & the highway was the best way.”
If you want to move into a new living space or community by the time the holidays roll around, Souchek explained that now is the time to start planning.
“It might seem like September is too early to start thinking about it,” he said, “but the fact of the matter is that December will be here before you know it. So start planning for the winter now, and give yourself some cushion.”
Following are several steps Souchek said can go a long way when it comes time to start packing your things:
▪ Make a pros-and-cons list of the top three properties into which you are interested in moving, considering which communities are the most viable and which might be more difficult.
▪ “Consult with family, friends, and call us here at Home Downsizing Solutions for professional advice on how to sell your home,” said Souchek. “Whatever you are dealing with – finding help moving your belongings, or needing to leave your belongings in your home while the house sells – we have a solution for you. Don’t try to do everything on your own.”
▪ Downsizing usually means moving into a residence with less space, so be proactive by noting the essential items you want to take with you and the things you might want to sell or donate.
Regardless of why you are looking to sell your home, whether due to downsizing, or because you’ve outgrown it, have accepted a job transfer, are experiencing financial difficulties or a health challenge, or other reason, 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.
The company can also help take care of any needed repairs, allowing sellers to leave behind anything they can’t or do not want to take with them, 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, 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,” said Souchek. “It’s critical to have access to the resources that will make the process as easy as possible, and I have been able to provide this for our clients by setting very high standards of professionalism and honesty. It’s among the many things that to set my company apart in this industry.”
