In our last post in the Hanging Up the Keys series, we talked about tips on selling your home when moving to senior living in Rock Springs WY. Now that you know how to prepare your home to sell, it’s time to find a good realtor that will help you get the best value for your home. Working with a good realtor can go a long way!


It’s all about personality, especially when selling your home at an older age. Your house is full of special memories, and you don’t want someone who is just trying to sell your home for the sake of selling it. Choosing a realtor based on their personality – how well you get along with them – rather than their experience will help make the process smoother and more enjoyable. Have other homeowners in the family? Be sure to ask them for referrals. It’s the best way to make sure you get an excellent, personable agent with a proven track record to back up their personality.


Make sure they can offer you enough support. Do your research, even if they are a referral. Ask your friends and family all the questions you need to make sure they can take on your home. A lot of realtors work with multiple agents at any given moment.


Finally, make sure they can mitigate risk. When selling your home and moving into senior living in Rock Springs WY, you want a realtor who will give you the honest truth about the risks associated with selling. Most of the time, the selling process is smooth, but because each home is an individual circumstance, an honest and realistic realtor can help you get the best price for your home.
