Have you been thinking about selling your home in Grand Rapids and saying farewell to the responsibilities of homeownership? Right now the Grand Rapids housing market is hot! Now is an ideal time to sell your home and say hello to the flexibility and freedom of independent living at Clark Retirement. Here is what you need to know about selling your house and moving into an independent living community.
Right now, Grand Rapids does not have enough houses on the market to meet the growing demand of home buyers. This is great news for sellers — it’s not uncommon for houses to be sold within a week. And with heavy competition for homes due to the limited inventory, sellers are sometimes receiving above asking price.
Not only is there a high demand for homes in Grand Rapids right now, but the median price per home increased by more than 11% in 2019, a trend that has continued to rise in 2020.
Ready to begin the process of selling your home? Start by determining the value of your home and finding a realtor. An easy way to roughly gauge the value of your home is to visit Zillow and get a Zestimate. You’ll still want to work with a realtor for a more accurate value, but services like Zillow can at least get you started.
When you’re ready to list, it’s a good idea to work with a realtor who specializes in working with sellers over 60 years old. These specialists will have a better understanding of your unique needs and options for retirement living. You can find a realtor recommendation from the National Association of Realtors.
You’re ready to move and start celebrating the next chapter of your life. As you look into retirement community options, it’s important to consider a Life Plan Community like Clark.
A Life Plan Community allows you to “age in place” and offers you access to multiple levels of care should your needs change. You also have the promise of lifetime housing, no matter what. A great fear of many older adults is outliving their financial resources. The Clark Promise removes any fear and promises you will always have a home in our community, even if your financial resources become depleted due to longevity or illness.
Another big perk of living at Clark is our vibrant communities and great amenities. At Clark you’ll be surrounded by people like you who are living life to its fullest!
