You’ve lived in your home for 30 years. Now, the kids have grown and moved away, the neighborhood is changing and you’d like to move to a smaller home where you can enjoy an active retirement.

The problem is you’re not sure what your house is worth, you’re concerned about tax planning and you don’t know what your options are in terms of what or where to buy. You might want to consider hiring a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®).

What a SRES® Means to You
