Maintaining a home may be a longstanding source of pride for you, but it can also become a burden as you grow older. Perhaps your home has a large yard which requires constant maintenance. There are also a number of high expense repair fees that can quickly add-up which not only can cause a financial burden, but also an immense amount of stress. Retirement shouldn’t be about shoveling, mowing the lawn or home repairs. It’s worthwhile to take a look at your current living situation and see if an alternative to remaining at home may give you more freedom and flexibility in the long run.

For many of us, the decision to make a move from our homes of many years is understandably difficult. But things have changed. Upkeep has become strenuous and costly, and it interferes with how we want to live our lives today. Presbyterian Homes understands your concerns and has designed a Home Sales and Moving Assistance Program to eliminate any anticipated stress.

The Home Sales Contingency Plan offers low interim-financing rates and interim rental in the unlikely event our relocation consulting team can’t sell your house in 90 days. Statistics indicate that prospective residents whose homes were sold through our relocation consulting team sold 3.9 months faster than those who chose to go it alone. Be sure to also ask about our deferred entrance fee program.

As your move approaches, Presbyterian Home’ program does it all, from planning to packing to putting it all in place, just as you wish.Experts can provide simple moving solutions and, based on your needs, services may include a network of real estate professionals to find the right buyer at the right price; recommend improvements to make your house as appealing as possible to sell; and organize your move to help you decide what to bring.

There are five Presbyterian Homes communities offering a maintenance-free lifestyle. To learn more about Presbyterian Homes located in Evanston, Arlington Heights and Lake Forest, visit the Website at or call (847) 866-1641.
