One of the biggest concerns to emerge from the current coronavirus pandemic is the enormous impact it has had in several aged care facilities. Indeed, one of the major talking points to emerge in recent months has been the overall aged care industry in Australia, and how effectively these services are caring for our elder relatives.
As some of our regular readers will know, the team at Ian Reid Buyer and Vendor Advocates have a long and successful track record of assisting older Victorians to make the transition to life in an aged care facility, both through helping them to sell their existing family home with a minimum of stress, to assisting in choosing the right place to move to. So if you or someone you know is considering making a move to retirement living, whether that means a purpose-built retirement community or another form of aged care, our Advocates are able to help with that process every step of the way.
It is important to remember that the move to retirement living has enormous financial implications for the person or couple making that move, and for the wider family as well. That’s why it is particularly important that these decisions are fully informed and based on objective advice that is focused on YOUR best interests, not someone else’s.
Up to date advice
It’s probably been quite a while since you last dealt with a real estate agent. Over that time the way agents work has changed, methods of sale have changed, and buyer expectations changed. But with an Ian Reid Vendor Advocate by your side, you can be sure that your best interests are protected every step of the way.
Getting your property ready
One of the major concerns for many people when they move to retirement living is how to present their property in today’s market. Of course, this often includes the task of de-cluttering the home to show off the available space, moving furniture around, getting the garden sorted and organising storage while the property is on the market. Rather than calling on family members and friends for assistance, your Ian Reid Advocate can organise all these tasks for you.
Support you can rely on
When you decide to move to aged care, you will need the support of someone who not only knows the property market well, but who is also prepared to offer you emotional support as well so you don’t have any unnecessary stress or pressure. Your Ian Reid Advocate will be there by your side to help you choose the right agent and take care of all the details in preparing your property for sale. They will also monitor the agent’s performance, maximise negotiations on your behalf, and guide you through to moving day and beyond.
As we mentioned earlier, an Ian Reid Advocate van even help you find the right accommodation to move to as well.
So, if the idea of moving to aged care is causing concerns for you and your family right now, why not give the team at Ian Reid a call for some obligation-free advice today. You’ll also find lots of helpful tips in our free booklet, “Fatal Real Estate Traps Exposed”.
