As a Realtor and Senior Real Estate Specialist: SRES designated agent, I am referred into estates all the time that have the parents or siblings home that has, let's just say, accumulated things over the years! Nothing wrong with this, but it can be overwhelming at times to deal with a house that has seven rooms that look like this one, plus the garage. This can also lead to, and involve the home having a lot of deferred maintenance that has to be addressed. Some examples are: Roofs, plumbing, flooring, remodeling in kitchen and bathrooms and exterior siding, windows and landscaping surrounding the home. So, what do you do?

You need a Realtor that has a team of experts in estate sales, moving, packing and yes even trash removal to help. that agent also needs a team of contractors in every area to address the needs of the home. On the other hand, sometimes estates don't have the kind of money it takes to fix anything and just want to sell the home "As-Is" and so it's nice to have an agent that has investors that will make an offer and take the home completely as it currently is with all the things and everything. The agent can also put the home on the market to draw as many investors into the process to make sure you yield the highest and best selling price that the market can bare.

Lastly, this agent should also have a team of contractors to help the parent "age in place," as they say, if that is what is preferred. The home can be retrofitted with rails, seats and grip bars in the shower and ramps to help your loved one be safe in the home they currently live in.

When is this appropriate to consider your options? Usually I get the call when a parent passes away and the kids inherit a property that they are not able to keep, but in other cases the family has decided to right-size the parent into a more manageable living situation closer to them. That could be an assisted living home, a single level condo, or even a 55 Plus community for the more active senior. These are all great times to address this.

In the end though, you need a professional like me to sit down and find out the needs of the family and then discuss all the available options to consider before making a decision. I hope this help!

I am never too busy to answer questions or come out and sit down to discuss what would be best for the family so don't hesitate to call me. Mike Rains REMAX -(714) 293-4786. #mikerainsrealtor

This is a super clean single level detached home coming on the market soon. With inventory being the way that it is these days, I wanted to put it out there for buyers who are looking for something they don't have to do a thing too! This is such a well maintained home, with the upgrades and color schemes that make it a modern and warm home to live in. Call me for more information or if you would like to schedule an appointment to see this lovely home

Just read this article from Market watch, article, that revealed that the home builder confidence has climbed to an 8-month high. This could be great news to get more building projects to market to address what has been a prolonged housing shortage. here is a snippet of the article;

"The closely-watched sentiment tracker rose to its highest since March, the industry group said Thursday. That was the second-highest reading since the housing bubble of 2005. Economists surveyed by Econoday had forecast a one-point decline, to 67. Any reading over 50 signals expansion.

The sub-index that tracks views current sales conditions also rose two points, to 77, but the gauge of sales over the next six months dipped one point to 77. The tracker of buyer traffic rose two points to 50.'
