Seniors: The "Silver Tsunami"

Posted by Rachel Badgett on Thursday, August 8th, 2019 at 1:05pm.

Seniors can be very vulnerable with housing needs and finances. Just recently, we heard stories from people in both real estate and law about seniors being taken advantage of even by family members. It often involves their estate, home, will and money but can also be about their general care. Knowing an effective attorney specializing in elder law is crucial if you have a loved one you are concerned about. We heard Sanders Law Group present at the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce. They impressed us! They go to bat for seniors. They say this on their website:

Every day for the next 19 years 10,000 Americans will reach age 65. We started out as Baby Boomers, now suddenly, we are the “Silver Tsunami”. It’s clear that, as we face some of the difficult challenges of aging, like dealing with incapacity and long term care for ourselves or a loved one, taking advantage of needed resources is confusing, complex and requires advance planning.

This local law firm is also listed as a resource by Silver Age - a wonderful and reliable resource for seniors looking for help to find the right place to live, aside from normal real estate. We also recommend their services - many times they help find a place for someone at no charge. 

Something that really tugs at our hearts is helping seniors sell their homes. We have helped many who are downsizing. We know how stressful it can be and have great ideas. Unfortunately, some wait too long and the moving process alone can literally cause a heart attack! Don't wait until your body can't handle a move. Please, please contact us for help so you can sell your house under the guidance and care of our expertise. 

Managed by multiple award winning Brokers, our firm is here to provide you with expert guidance and support.
