I Wish We Had Moved to a 55 and over Community Sooner

When Jensen sales representatives sit down to learn about a potential buyer, we find they often feel all alone with their quandary over whether to sell the family home and make a move for themselves to a 55 and over community. We typically hear that the children have left the house (presumably for good!), the yard is getting too much to maintain, climbing stairs in the cape or colonial is wearing them out, and some more modern conveniences would help make cooking, cleaning, working and living a lot easier (like a first floor laundry, island kitchen, new flooring, better storage, etc.). They don’t need so many rooms and would like to reconfigure others to have open living/kitchen/dining areas, a first floor master bedroom/bath, and a home office or hobby space. If we only had a nickel every time we heard this…

Beyond the house, the old neighborhood holds great memories but has changed one too many times and they are now ready for a change. Yet, it is hard to give up the house and place that has meant so much to them. We understand what you are going through. Jensen is here to listen and help you find a more accommodating home and neighborhood.

You are not alone! Many Jensen residents have made the journey before you. A house within your means is more important today than ever. Making a move needs to be a step forward to a more secure and comfortable lifestyle. Using one’s equity to buy a new or resale home, perhaps being able to keep some funds in reserve for emergencies or that special trip, and having the income to cover monthly expenses allows for a good night’s sleep. Getting in on the Good Life in a right-sized and more manageable home is a dream come true.

Please keep in mind another statement we hear all the time: “We wish we had done it sooner!”
