CLARKSVILLE, Md.—The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate will offer up to 15 complimentary hours of move management services to seniors moving to an active adult community, retirement community or assisted-living community when they list their current homes with the Northrop Team.
The move management services—including sorting and organizing belongings as well as packing and loading boxes—are offered through the Northrop Team’s Senior Living Division, which specializes in helping seniors sell their homes and transition into living arrangements more suitable for their needs.
“As Baby Boomers age, more and more seniors want to right-size their homes, a challenging undertaking for many who’ve lived in the same house for decades and accumulated roomfuls of belongings,” said Karla Pinato, director of the Senior Living Division with the Northrop Team. “We’ve assembled a team and package of services dedicated to easing this challenge.” The new services ease the challenge of moving and prepare homes for staging and photography designed to appeal to homebuyers.
The Northrop Team’s senior real estate specialists help seniors consider their options from selling their homes and moving into 55-and-older lifestyle communities or one-level condos that require less upkeep to transitioning into retirement or assisted-living communities. Northrop Team specialists represent seniors’ interests throughout the home selling or buying process and subsequent transition.
“Moving is overwhelming for anyone, but can be especially overwhelming for seniors who aren’t familiar with today’s housing market and don’t know what to do with a houseful of furniture, clothes and other items,” Pinato said. “That’s where we step in to help.”
