If you're considering a move to a retirement community, you could be well-positioned to net a great return on the investment you've made in your house - thanks to the vibrant real estate market expected during spring selling season.
For those who might not know where to start, the Erickson Realty and Moving Services program at Eagle's Trace in West Houston can help - with downsizing, selecting a real estate agent, finding a moving company, and much more.
“You don’t have to go at it alone!” says Pam Burgeson, Director of Sales. “Your personal planning consultant, Haven Benoit, will be with you every step of the way.”
This time next year, you could be enjoying all that spring has to offer in your new Eagle’s Trace apartment home, surrounded by a beautifully landscaped community filled with amenities, activities, and friends.
“We know that moving—from downsizing and packing to home staging and selling—can be daunting,” adds Burgeson. “ The Erickson Realty and Moving Services program was established to help seniors and their families effectively navigate the process.”
The program offers complimentary coordination of all realty and moving needs, including downsizing, home staging, packing, and moving—not to mention recommendations for preferred real estate agents from a roster of trusted professionals.
“As part of the Erickson Realty and Moving Services program, I can help you create a step-by-step guide, which makes the entire process feel less overwhelming,” says Benoit. “Whenever you’re ready, I can help you take the next step with confidence.”
Even if you’re not looking to sell this spring, it’s never too early to start thinking about what a move in the future might look like.
With complimentary home visits, Benoit can help you determine what your budget will be, decide on what items to bring with you, and design the layout of your future living space.
“Our home visits are so beneficial,” says Benoit. “I can take a look at your personal interior design style and help you figure out where your furniture will go in your future apartment home.”
Priority list perks
Only Eagle’s Trace priority list members have direct access to the offerings of Erickson Realty and Moving Services. Being on the priority list gives future residents the time to discuss options, get questions answered, make a plan, and implement their own timeline.
As a priority list member, you’ll also receive invitations to special sales events and seminars throughout the year and be the first to learn about community news. You can even reserve a specific apartment home design before it’s available to members of the general public. For anyone who has a strong preference for a particular floor plan, an early spot on the list can make all the difference.
March into home sales
Eagle’s Trace offers a wide variety of floor plans to meet every need and budget, whether you’re looking for a quaint one-bedroom model or a spacious two-bedroom, two-bath apartment home.
“Now is the time! Real estate in Houston is still very strong and continues to be a sellers’ market. However, interest rates are starting to climb and the unrest overseas may impact our economy,” notes Lisa Hudgens of ReMax NW and a long-standing preferred partner of Eagle’s Trace. “March through August is typically the best time to list a home and receive the most favorable outcome.”
Hudgens also notes the strong partnership between all parties.
“It is so easy for our seniors to move & downsize since ‘the team’ always communicates timing and a plan of action from start to finish. We each offer a critical step in the process and make it a seamless transition,” she describes. “New residents only have to focus on one task, which is what items they are taking to their new home at Eagles Trace, while we handle everything else!”
With the help of Erickson Realty and Moving Services, all the burdens of selling and moving can be lifted off your shoulders.
