Parting with a long-time home can be one of the most difficult moves - it is often full of emotion and very hard to imagine living in a smaller or simpler home after many years in the same familiar surroundings. Whether it is the house you grew up in or where you lived many years, there are rooms full of memories that need to find a new place.
The Murphy Team has developed a specialty practice around the big life change of "downsizing". Over the years, we have helped dozens of homeowners begin the next chapter - sometimes for happy reasons like moving closer to grandchildren, and sometimes for difficult reasons like the loss of a loved one. We have managed these sales for local clients and also for family members who live far away and need "boots on the ground" management of the process from beginning to end. We also know there may be varying ideas among family members about what should happen to the family home. We have navigated these waters many times, and our goal is not only to get you top dollar for your home, but also to bring empathy, efficiency and a calm sense of order to the process.
We are here to help strategize your move to a brand new lifestyle or simply prepare for the sale of the house. We help you figure out where to make donations, how to set up an estate sale, what to send to storage and what to bring with you. We have reasonably priced and reliable stagers, movers painters, haulers and handymen at the ready. Our goal is to make everything as seamless and stress-free as possible so you can focus on your new place.
If you are thinking of downsizing or selling a longtime family home, please reach out. We understand the process from start to finish and would be delighted to help.
