Many people in the rapidly growing 70-and-over population segment are selling their homes in favor of smaller houses or condos, either in traditional neighborhoods or retirement communities. This is a perfect time to cater to the relocation needs market.
Moving is always stressful, and it can be especially traumatic for someone who is leaving a home they’ve been in for decades that is full of precious memories.
Adding to the challenge is the fact that families are more spread out geographically and not always available to help with the moving process. Not only is the packing and cleaning process physically demanding, it also takes an emotional toll.
A senior relocation consultant can provide an element of compassionate objectivity as decisions are made about what to keep, give away, sell or toss.
As a senior relocation specialist, you can offer a wide range of services. It’s typical to provide a total turnkey package, which means you’ll orchestrate every aspect of the move, including:
- Assistance with selling the current home
- Assistance with finding a new residence
- Assistance with selecting a moving company
- Sorting and downsizing
- Estate sales
- Coordinating movers, utilities, cleaning and other tasks
- Packing and unpacking
