Maybe you want to cut back on expenses, or you need a simple floor plan for safe living. Maybe it is finally time to be closer to family or you are taking those first, smart steps, for aging in place. The process doesn't have to be overwhelming. It's okay if you are not sure where to begin, Dawn Brinkman, founder of Homeside Marketing can help.

Great news! Look for my new SRES® designation!

Downsizing is process and it should not be taken on all by yourself. It can be confusing, frustrating and stressful to think about sorting through a lifetime of possessions. You may require the participation of multiple family members and it often means letting go of items which have become part of your identity. 

Trust me, you are not alone when it comes to taking on these challenges! According to the Alliance for Aging Research, by the year 2030, over 71 million people will be over the age of 65, and over 33 million will be over the age of 75 in the United States. That means in the next 8 years we have a lot of amazing homeowners to assist!

My name is Dawn Brinkman, and this topic is near and dear to my heart because I have lived it first-hand with my in-laws. From that first conversation, wondering if it is the right time to make a change, struggling through the private, uncomfortable conversations about money or safety, working with varied family members and navigating for the first time through a process which is critical, life changing and complex. It is not simple, but it is necessary. 

As your Senior Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®), I am committed to working with you and your family members. I will assist you with buying or selling and I have a team of professionals that can help with those important questions.

If you feel now is the right time to downsize or secure a safer home, you have come to the right place. Homeside Marketing is an excellent resource for making your home transition less traumatic, more enjoyable and far more streamlined.
