  • Contact Stephanie Danielson, Broker and request a market analysis. This will give you an idea of how much money you’ll net from your home sale.
  • Talk to your Financial Advisor and base your decision on financial sense.
  • If a property interests you, first review its average utility costs and deferred maintenance.
  • If you no longer want to care for outside maintenance issues, moving into an association maintained property or apartment may be your best option.
  • If moving to an association-maintained community, know their rules and regulations, as well as what your dues cover.
  • If you prefer to rent, visit for up-to-date listings, or for 55+ rental communities.
  • If your desire is to purchase, one of our Buyer Specialists will set you up on a custom MLS search so you can view listings as they become available.
  • Think long-range such as; single-level living with no stairs, an open floor plan which optimizes living space, a walk-in shower or tub should also be considered.
  • Choose a location convenient to where your interests lie, including shopping, doctor offices, transportation sources, religious worship, distance to family and friends, etc.
  • Keep moving ahead and congratulate yourself for each step you make. Enjoy your new-found sense of freedom and self-determination!
