Walnut Creek Seniors At Risk; Missing Key Housing Questions!
Sam Benson specializes in helping seniors downsize their homes in Walnut Creek, CA. His Senior Sessions campaign offers free books and information on how seniors can avoid making risky real estate decisions.
“When seniors are downsizing their living situations, they tend not to be aware of what problems to look for. As an example, a gorgeous and clean independent living community may awe a senior right off the bat. He or she instantly falls in love with the unit, activities offered, and even the grounds. No problems detected, right? Wrong. As with any real estate transaction, more questions need to be asked,” said Sam Benson.
The Senior Sessions campaign is available for free to groups of 10 people (or more) and there is no pushy business pitch before, during, or after the event. “As I cited in the example, seniors may find a place they like and then sign on the dotted line. My Appropriate Housing Selection talk discusses what red flags need to be identified by the buyer through asking the right questions. If a senior community has too many or immediate vacancies, deeper digging is suggested as to why.”
Mr. Benson says something as simple as asking if a guest apartment for out of town guests is available should be considered. While selecting the most appropriate living situation for a senior certainly isn’t elder financial abuse, other real estate challenges can arise.
