Realtor vs Estate Company: A Holistic Approach to Navigating Downsizing

Embarking on the journey of downsizing can be both an emotional and logistical challenge. Whether you're an empty-nester looking to simplify or a family member assisting a loved one in transitioning to a smaller space, the process requires thoughtful consideration. In the realm of downsizing, two main avenues often come to mind: working with a realtor or enlisting the services of an Estate Company like us, Estate Concierge.

Downsizing with a Realtor: A Quick Overview


When a realtor assures you they can assist in downsizing, it usually entails providing recommendations on depersonalization and decluttering the home for sale. The primary focus is to expedite the process, aligning with the realtor's goal of listing the property promptly. Their aim is to help you secure top dollar for your home, thereby maximizing their commission and your profit.


Typically, this approach involves leaving you with a to-do list, which may include urgent home repairs or improvements to enhance the property's market value. Interestingly, realtors may sometimes advise against renovations, suggesting that potential buyers prefer a blank canvas for their personal touch and saving you time, getting the listing up fast.
