Palo Alto’s Avenidas offers its Fifth Annual Housing Conference on March 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, located at 3921 Fabian Way in Palo Alto. Early registration for this one-day conference is $40 for Avenidas members and $50 for non-members. After March 1, registration is $60. The program includes lunch, a keynote address, one copy of the newest “Where to Live Housing Guide,” three workshops, access to sponsors and the opportunity to win prizes.
Rick Turley, president of Coldwell Banker in the San Francisco Bay Area, will give the keynote address, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Mr. Turley’s keynote address is entitled, “Real Estate is Real Local--A 2011 Review of the Bay Area Residential Market.”
“The topics in these workshops are full of information and can be used in real-life situations because all our speakers are experts and experienced in each of their assigned topics,” Kari Martell of Avenidas said.
The conference is composed of three sessions and in each session every participant has the option to choose one of three workshops.
The three workshops for the first session include “The Comfort and Safety of Home,” “Selling Your Home: The Four P’s” and “Where to Live: First Steps.” The four “P’s” in selling the home are planning, preparing, pricing and paperwork, and attendees at this workshop will benefit from the speaker’s 26-plus years of real-life situations.
The three subjects for the second session are “House Rich and Cash Poor: Ways to Unlock Your Home’s Value,” “All About Assisted Living” and “Letting Go of the Past to Make Room for the Future.” The third and last session’s topics are “Help Staying in Your Home,” “ABCs of Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC)” and “Should I Rent or Should I Own?”
This conference is dedicated to the lives of seniors and is about making wise decisions, choosing the best options in their lives, ensuring their lives are as convenient as possible and maximizing the potential of what their lives can offer.
