Who Are the Senior Real Estate Specialists®?
Seniors Real Estate Specialists® are REALTORS® qualified to meet the special needs and concerns of maturing Americans. A national program since 1998, The Senior Advantage Real Estate Council® (SAREC®) offers a specific designation, SRES®, to identify those members who have successfully completed its education program along with other prerequisites.
By earning the SRES® designation, your REALTOR® has demonstrated necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel senior clients through major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home. Your REALTOR® has received special training, gets regular updates, and is prepared to offer the options and information needed in making life changing decisions.
Why Use SRES®?
A Seniors Real Estate Specialist® is experienced and knowledgeable in meeting your specific needs. And that can make all the difference in the world.
As we age, we demand specialists in our health needs, so why not in our housing and equity needs as well?
An SRES brings:
- A customized approach to your situation; an SRES works with how your living situation fits into your overall plan.
- Expertise and patience without condescension.
- An awareness of options and solid, reliable referrals for specific situations to explore those options.
- A variety of choices to reduce out of pocket expenses, gain cash, or create or defer income.
How Can a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® Help Me?
An SRES® designee can help you make wise decisions about selling the family home, financing, buying rental property, or managing the capital gains and tax implications of owning real estate, among many other issues. Seniors Real Estate Specialists® offer clients relevant information on current trends in senior real estate transactions, and can refer you to other professionals such as attorneys and C.P.A.s who also have specialty interest in senior clientele issues.
A national program since 1998, the council now has Seniors Real Estate Specialists® in all 50 states and Canada and adds hundreds of new members every month.
SAREC® members are not qualified to give legal or tax advice and SAREC® does not guarantee the accuracy of its members® information. All clients are strongly urged to contact a real estate attorney or certified public accountant to obtain legal or tax advice streams to either stay independent or finance assistance.
