Downsizing with Silver Legacy 

Downsizing can be driven by many events: Becoming Empty Nesters, retiring, loss of a loved one, not wanting/being able to keep up a large home, not feeling safe in your home any longer, and even just needing more help with daily tasks. Regardless of the reasons, it takes special care, a PLAN, and partners to get you to where you want to go. That's where we come in. 

Recent or Soon To Be
Empty Nesters

Transitioning from a bustling family home to a more suitable living space as your children embark on their adult lives involves careful downsizing and strategic planning.

The Role of Family and Advisors

Family is a huge part of a Senior move. It is great if they are local, but even if not, we coordinate closely on all aspects of a move.

Advisors can play a big role as well -- legal, tax, medical, etc. If they are not in place, we can make recommendations, then coordinate closely to make sure everyone is on the same page and working toward your goal!
