Today’s real estate consumer has far more complex real estate needs than the home buyers and sellers of past generations. Gone are the days when Mom and Pop would buy a modest home, raise their family there and frequently live in the same place for many years. Today’s very mobile society is also an affluent one – many in the ‘baby boomer’ generation have already inherited their parents’ assets and their real estate needs have changed to reflect this. Homebuyers and sellers today are dealing with such current realities as estate homes that need to be sold, children who need residence housing for college, vacation homes or even income or investment properties. Many of these situations call for real estate help in places that are far from home, either in another city, or province or even in another country. If this sounds like you, it may surprise you to know that your best first step in handling these distant real estate needs is right here at home with your local Coldwell Banker real estate professional.
