REALTORSR must complete many hours of pre- and post- licensing coursework and pass a state-required exam to obtain and maintain their real estate license. A select few also choose to take it a step forward and add to their knowledge and the tools they provide to consumers by earning the Seniors Real Estate SpecialistR (SRESR) designation.
According to the National Association of REALTORS, REALTORS who carry the SRESR designation are special qualified to address the real estate needs of those 50+ in the marketplace.
Seniors have needs and communication expectations that differ from today's millenials and SRESR holders bring a unique approach to each transaction. A SRESR REALTOR can also help buyers and sellers better understand how to use the government-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program to buy a home without the need to make monthly mortgage payments.
Could you attract more buyers with this strategy? Knowing all of the options available is key to selling a home faster and maximizing the returns for everyone!
When choosing a REALTOR or lender for one of the most important financial decisions most people make, it's critical that you work with a partner who has the tools to assist you.
