Hello? It's Me...

Occasionally we walk into a home and as the homeowner is escorting us to the second floor to proudly show off the master bedroom suite that was added last year, after combining what was once two smaller bedrooms, into one (wince), we smile and agree how yes indeed it is spacious and beautiful. But...we are silently wishing you would have called.

Hello? It's me...

your local, experienced REALTOR offering complimentary consultations on real estate planning. We are here to help you avoid certain home improvement blunders, like Amy Hoak, who wrote this excellent and informative article, "Renovations that Could Lower Your Home's Value". She's spot on folks. Please note, like all financial planning, real estate is no different. Just like Amy says, "Everything is relative to what the homeowner's long-range intent is." We agree and coach our clients to look forward, consider circumstances current and future before making decisions of such epic proportion. 

Thinking about renovations? Call us. First. 978-356-8922

Help Your Parents Make Their Retirement Funds Last Longer

 

Are you a member of the Sandwich Generation, raising kids AND your aging parents? Maybe you're the slice of bread on top or the aging parent and have no intention of trading in your long history and beloved memories for a one-level living arrangement. Maybe you planned ahead and Gram and Gramps are already in their cozy condo with a garage, first floor master and laundry. Regardless, the process is looming, inevitable, complicated and usually highly emotional. 

I read an excellent article by Jeff Brown, a Sandwich Generation writer..."What to Do with Mom and Dad". He breaks it down and his bottom line spells it out. Don't wait. Get all family members on board, educate yourselves and get help from your accountant, attorney and real estate agent. Clients reach out to us often for advice and we provide them with the tools they need to set attainable, long-term financial goals. Educating you on market conditions, current actual values and return (or lack of) on potential improvements is what we do best. We understand the sensitive nature of being a "slice" in the "sandwich" and the emotions attached to "home". Take advantage of our 200+ years of collective experience. We care about our seniors; they deserve the absolute best and we want to help you help them get exactly that.
