Is it time to move or downsize? 

Moving is one of the most stressful activities you can undertake! 

 Making the decision to move, to the right house, in the right neighborhood, at the right time, is far from straightforward.  The thought of leaving your comfortable and familiar surroundings can be confusing and emotionally draining. But there will be a time when looking after and maintaining your home can become a burden and start taking too much time, money, and effort. You may also be considering health issues that could limit your ability to live independently now and in the future. Fortunately, a highly qualified professional, Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) like Ivana Basnight can support you in making those difficult but important decisions that are best for you and your family.
