Instructor: Helen Flynn
Selling a house one has lived in for 15 or 20 years is a major event and can be an overwhelming task. There are emotional, physical, spiritual, financial, and social ramifications. It often comes at a point in life when one’s physical and/or emotional strength is depleted. The purpose of this course is to provide information and guidance for individuals and family members facing this major undertaking and life challenge. Topics include knowing when it is time to move; options for where to live; what to do with your “stuff;” legal and financial issues related to selling and estates; dispersion of funds; and how to manage the estate of a parent locally or elsewhere.
