With the virus lock-down making it impossible to attend any public events, agents at The Steller Group Senior Solutions have repackaged their popular live seminars into videos — for seniors who want to make that big move into something lower-maintenance and single-level.

What: The Steller Group Inc. agents specialize in downsizing moves: listing, selling, improving to increase salability, handling discards, low-maintenance living, purchase and rental. Video series will focus on common issues that arise around a senior move and their solutions, including “Navigating Your Home Sale in a Shifting Market,” “What to Do With All Your Stuff,” “Home Wise Investments and Staging for Maximum Return” and “Right-Size Buying Options.”

As of today, you can watch their first online video installment of a series with the content from those seminars, to include ideas on getting the most value out of your home, prepping it for sale, thinning out all of the “stuff” that accumulates over decades of ownership, and finding attractive possibilities and locations for that next home.
After a frenzied early 2020 real estate market fueled by low inventory and high demand, Steller agents say they’re seeing a respectful and necessary pause across the industry due to local and state orders related to COVID-19.
“The real estate market is starting to hit the pause button,” says Steller broker-agent Blair Bryant, still reporting traffic and sales from previous weeks that look more like the super-seller’s market year of 2017 rather than the two slightly cooler years in between.
“Up until the stay-at-home order, many properties had been going under contract in 48 hours,” he notes.
That includes a home the team listed last week at $1.2 million that drew two strong offers in a single day.
According to broker-owner Conrad Steller, the statewide stay-at-home order specifically excludes real estate transactions, allowing all existing transactions, including all parties involved in the process, to work to bring those to completion.
“We have nearly 40 clients under contract, and only one has terminated due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19,” says Steller. “Everyone needs a roof over his or her head, especially during this time, and we’re working hard with our clients to help them close.”
Some longtime homeowners, adds Bryant, need to sell following a hardship or other stress.
