Considering Senior Living Care

For older adults who need some assistance with daily activities—but also want to maintain some independence and social interaction—an assisted living community is the solution. Assisted living communities typically offer private or semi-private apartments with kitchenettes, bathrooms, and closets. There are also common areas and amenities like fitness centers, salons, spas, pools, craft rooms, theaters, and more.

Moving into a retirement community can have many advantages, and it's possible to maintain the same great quality of life you've always had. You'll get easy access to professional care and supportive services, such as:

  • Medication management
  • Personal care
  • Housekeeping and laundry service
  • Meal preparation
  • Transportation
  • Social activities and entertainment
  • Safety and security

Making the move to a senior community can bring peace of mind to yourself and your family members. However, it can also pose some challenges and difficulties. In addition to adjusting to a new environment and a new routine, a common concern is how to deal with the cost of senior care. Selling your old house is one way of paying for an independent or assisted living residence, and this process starts with downsizing and decluttering your belongings.

Advantages of Downsizing Your House

Downsizing your house can have many advantages for elders who are planning to move into a retirement community. Some of the benefits include:

  • Reducing expenses and increasing cash flow. By selling your house, you can eliminate your mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and utility costs. You can also use the proceeds from the sale to pay for your assisted living fees or other expenses.
  • Simplifying your life. By moving into a smaller space, you can get rid of the clutter and excess belongings that may be weighing you down. You can also enjoy more freedom and flexibility, as you won't have to worry about managing a large property or dealing with repairs and upkeep.
  • Improving health and safety. Living in a senior community, you have access to professional staff, medical services, social activities, and other amenities that can enhance your well-being and security. You can also avoid the risks of living alone or in an unsafe or inaccessible environment.

About Home Downsizing Solutions®

A very smooth transaction with a fair market price. I’m glad we didn’t go the regular real estate route. Very professional and everything was upfront with no surprises. Thanks for helping me sell my mother’s house. Terry E.
Having sold our house to Ben Souchek, I can honestly say it was the easiest transaction we’ve gone through in quite some time. Ben has been up front and has done exactly everything he said he would do. It’s not often that you run across someone these days that does this and is willing to help in any way he can. Our experience with Ben has been nothing but positive. Mike P.
Ben was very helpful and patient when it came time to selling my home. After my husband passed away I needed to fix and sell the house. They helped me, gave me honest advice and waited patiently while I made decisions… You won’t be disappointed! Excellent service! Teresa M.

Get In Touch
  • Take inventory of your belongings and sort them into categories: keep, donate, sell, or discard.
  • Go digital when possible! Scan important documents, photos, and memorabilia.
  • Measure your furniture and compare it with the floor plan of your new place. Sell or donate any items that won't fit or match your new style.
  • Avoid tackling the whole house in one go. Work on one room or area at a time. Set realistic deadlines and reward yourself for completing each task.
  • Ask for help from family, friends, or professionals if you feel overwhelmed or need assistance with sorting, packing, moving, cleaning, or selling your belongings.
  • Consider hiring professional services that can help you with some of the tasks. For example, you may want to hire a senior move manager who can help you plan and coordinate every step of your move.

Benefits of Using Cash Home Buyer Companies for Funding Senior Care  

Another important step to moving into an assisted living or other senior community is selling your house. One of the best ways to sell your house quickly and easily when downsizing is to find a cash buyer who is willing to buy your property as-is, without any contingencies or conditions.

A cash buyer is someone who has enough funds to purchase your house outright, without relying on financing from a bank or lender. Many homeowners prefer a private cash house sale because it eliminates many of the steps of a traditional home sale such as paying for repairs, showing their house to strangers, negotiating a sale, and a lengthy closing process.

Some of the advantages of selling your house for cash include:

Get In Touch
  • Faster closing: A cash buyer can close the deal in as little as 7 days or less without any delays or complications. You don't have to wait for appraisals, inspections, financing approvals, or other formalities that can take weeks or months with a traditional buyer.
  • Fewer fees: A cash buyer can save you money by eliminating the need for commissions, closing costs, repairs, or other expenses that are typically involved in a conventional sale. You won't have to pay any fees or charges to a realtor or a third party.
  • Lower risk: A cash buyer can reduce the risk of the deal falling through due to low appraisals, failed inspections, financing issues, or other unforeseen problems that can occur with regular real estate investors.

How to Choose a Retirement Community 

You and your family have decided it's time for moving into a retirement community—but how do you choose one that suits your budget, needs, and preferences? Here are some tips:

  • Determine your budget. The cost of a senior care home can vary depending on the location, size, services, and amenities offered. You'll first need to determine how much you can afford to spend on an senior living facility each month. Consider your income, savings, assets, insurance, and other sources of funding that can help you pay for an assisted living facility.
  • Identify your needs and preferences. Decide what features are important to you in an assisted living facility. Consider your physical, mental, emotional, and social needs and preferences that affect your quality of life. For example, do you need assistance with bathing or dressing? Do you have any medical conditions or medications that require special attention? What hobbies or interests do you have?
  • Visit different facilities. The best way to find out if an assisted living community is right for you is to visit in person and see for yourself. Schedule tours or appointments with different facilities and communities that match your criteria and compare them based on their appearance, atmosphere, staff attitude, resident satisfaction, and quality of care. You can also ask questions or request information about their policies, procedures, fees, contracts, licenses, and accreditations.
