The truth. It’s what Oklahoma City homeowners want concerning late-in-life housing issues like reverse mortgages, 55+ senior living options, selling a house in today’s market, and preparing to “stay put” in your own home as you age-in-place.
These topics, along with others, will be presented in the upcoming Senior Living Truth Series as 90-minute monthly educational seminars beginning in January 2016 at the Northwest Library, 5600 NW 122nd St. in Oklahoma City.
Adults 55+, seniors, and caregivers are invited to attend the free “Senior Living Truth Series” to learn the actual facts about issues related to home ownership and post-retirement downsizing in the Oklahoma City area.
This series of candid conversations and expert panel discussions about the unique and often complex issues facing long-time homeowners is to be moderated by Nikki Buckelew, considered the leading authority on issues related to downsizing, late-life relocation, and (55+) senior living solutions. As the founders of OKC Mature Moves Real Estate Services and The Seniors Real Estate Institute, Nikki along with her husband, Chris, have made it their mission to educate and guide both consumers and professionals on best practices related to post-retirement living.
“Seniors and families realize that the market is good right now in OKC, Edmond, Yukon, Mustang, and surrounding areas and are preparing to sell current homes and move into something more manageable,” said Buckelew. “Many seniors have no idea what is available to them, how much it will cost, or the process for making all the pieces fit together. We want to give them helpful information, introduce them to trusted local resources, and answer their questions. Beyond helping with immediate needs, our intention is give individuals and families the both direction and confidence so they feel empowered when the time comes to make a major life decision.”
The Senior Living Truth Series debuts with “The Truth About Reverse Mortgages” on January 28, followed by “The Truth About 55+ Senior Living Options” on February 25, “The Truth About Selling a Home in Today’s Market” on March 24, and “The Truth About Preparing Your Home for ‘Staying Put’” on April 28, 2016. More topics will be introduced as the series gets underway.
“People are tired of being ‘sold’ something only to find out later that there were either strings attached or they didn’t get all the facts,” Buckelew asserts. “There are myths and rumor mills running amuck and people deserve to know the real truth before they make a significant life-changing decision. They don’t want or need a sales pitch. They want truthful information from people they can trust so they can consider their options. And that’s exactly what we’re sharing in this series of educational expert seminars.”
There is no cost to attend for those age 55 or older. Registration for professionals is $25. Reservations can be made online at www.seniorlivingtruthseries.com or by calling 405-708-7010. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
