A seminar led by Contra Costa Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Dayna Wilson, on April 27th, helped local seniors facing the challenges of financing retirement understand the Bay Area real estate market and how to unlock the equity in their home. Wilson, a real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty/Day Real Estate (http://www.day-realestate.com), a fellow real estate agent and a Home Equity Retirement Specialist, showed seniors how they can plan for retirement by leveraging the local housing market. Attendees learned how to reduce expenses, plan for changing locations and create additional income to finance health care and assisted living.
Seminar topics covered how to afford to stay in your home or relocate closer to family members, and how to access cash to fulfill retirement dreams. Seniors and their families learned how to accomplish life transitions with the most ease and how to plan for senior living. The class also covered topics like accessing equity from a home while aging in place, what to consider before renting vs. making a move, the costs and complexities of selling, risk management, and ways to minimize the stress of moving.
"As a person that has lived in the same house for more than 45 years...'Wilson' gave me a lot of information that will prove essential if and when my wife and I decide to change our residence at some point." - Don, Lafayette, Ca.
