With effective mortgage rates below 4%, and Pittsburgh’s unemployment rate below 7%, it may not be as challenging as you think to sell your home and move to retirement communities in pa. Real Estate in Pittsburgh is booming, very few homes are on the market for longer than 30 to 45 days.  The theory of supply and demand is never more prevalent than today in the real estate market.  Today’s sellers are netting a larger percentage from the sale of their homes because of low interest rates, and the strong supply of first time buyers and transferees.

If you are like most Sherwood Oaks clients, it’s been years since you’ve sold a home.  So, it may be interesting for you to learn that you should have a home inspection before putting your house on the market.  This gives you more control over the sale when the sales agreement is presented.

At this retirement community pa, we at Sherwood Oaks have been helping seniors sell their homes for many years.  Our Preferred Realtor program puts you in touch with a realtor with specialized training.  Once you have listed your house, you may want to use an estate and household sales specialist, and we can recommend a good one.  Another person you can take advantage of – for free – is an organizer who Sherwood Oaks pays for. He will help you clean out attics, garages and closets, and also be present on the day of your move to unpack and hang your pictures. Call us for more information! 800 642-2217

What is Lifecare at This Retirement Community in PA

Sometimes residents have a long-term care insurance policy when they move on campus.
