What is an SRES?
An Seniors Real Estate Specialist is a Realtor who has done advanced and extensive training on the topic of assisting those who are aged 50+ and their families. While every purchase and sale of a home is unique, when it comes to person(s) over the age of 50 there may be extra considerations during a transaction; this includes second home taxes, estate planning, emotional ties, and more.
Why Should I Use an SRES?
An SRES puts the unique needs, concerns and goals of the 50+ client first as they have the knowledge and compassion to offer support through legal and financial transactions as well as lifestyle transitions, including relocation, refinancing, selling, or buying property. An SRES aims to serve the needs of multiple generations, taking every opportunity to advize and listen to the whole family including adult children, grandchildren and caregivers. By taking the time to ensure a client is comfortable and confident in the final decisions, this no-pressure approach will allow for tailored buying, selling, and marketing for the needs of an older client. An SRES has knowledge in provincial laws regarding senior care housing, reverse mortgages, pensions, TFSA's, and more. If you require someone with a network of local senior housing options, support services, or any senior-focused professional, look no further.
