The Upside of Downsizing

Roz Byrne

Roz Byrne, seniors’ real estate specialist, will present a seminar titled, “The Upside of Downsizing,” at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, May 4 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 20-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.
