The Upside of Downsizing

Oak Park Arms

Roz Byrne, real estate

Roz Byrne, seniors’ real estate specialist, will present a seminar titled, “The Upside of Downsizing,” at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 28 at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave. Her seminar addresses the concerns of moving for seniors. The public is welcome to attend the free event.

Byrne is a realtor specializing in helping retirees sell their homes. She is a 15-year veteran with RE/MAX. She earned a SRES designation which stands for Seniors Real Estate Specialist.

One of the greatest concerns for seniors after “Where am I moving to?” is “What do I do with all my stuff?” Many seniors have not bought or sold property in decades and a lot has changed in that time – legal and consumer issues, disclosure laws and technology.

Byrne’s seminar addresses:

  • a timetable for moving
  • enlisting the help of family and a network of resources to reduce clutter
  • a look at the realities of home sales in the current real estate marketplace

Many seniors have expressed a feeling of relief after attending one of Byrnes’s seminars. They are empowered with the knowledge that their home can sell and equipped with a timetable and a booklet of resources to execute the sale.

The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 708-386-4040.
