Downsizing

Have you been living in your home a long time and feel like it’s probably time to move into a smaller home or condo? Have your children all grown up and now out on their own? Empty, unused rooms? Or maybe it’s just too big and too much to maintain? You feel it’s time to downsize, but not sure how to best make it happen? We understand. We have helped numerous clients downsize to a smaller home or condo from a larger one.

At Ivan Realty Pro, we are on a mission to give our clients A First Class Real Estate Experience™. When it comes to selling a home that you have lived in a long time, often this is an emotional challenge. Often, the hardest part is figuring out what to do with all the stuff. Don’t worry! We have a game plan.

If you need to downsize, we recommend meeting with Ivan several weeks before going on the market. We can then help you analyze what all needs to be done to maximize your equity position when selling. If you need connections to our vetted painters or a handyman, we will provide great recommendations as well.

You have lived in your house more than 5 years.

It takes a lot of effort to get up and down the stairs.

You're tired of spending the entire weekend cleaning the yard or the inside.

Your kids are all out of high school.

Your kids keep suggesting that it's time to move into a smaller house, condo or assisted living complex.

You're retired now and want to travel more.

Home maintenance becomes a bit more of a chore than it used to be.

Tired of paying that large property tax bill.

You love the beach and feel like it would be fun to live in a beach house.

You know it's time and just need to make it happen!

Tell us more about your situation and what downsizing could mean to you. Again, contacting us early in the process is a good thing. We can then provide expert advice for preparing your property for the market and connecting you with the right service providers (if needed), and assisting in finding your replacement home.

TESTIMONIALS

The Costello’s

Aliso Viejo Home Owners

“We sold our house with Ivan Larco’s help and could not be more pleased he helped us save thousands of dollars. He has a very professional approach to every aspect of the sale, including comparison reviews, listening to what the owner wants, suggesting helpful fixes and arrangements of each room to make it more inviting, expert photography and website, and finally, making the final negotiations of the sale a very painless closing process. We have already told our friends how happy we are with working with Ivan and will recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property.”

Ruth & Brian R.

Dana Point Home Owners

“Ivan Larco was great in every way. He is responsive to our many questions. He is at all times professional and gets thing done...We highly recommend him. Have you ever tried to do a FISBO?  We tried to work one with our former tenant.  After sixty days of stress and aggravation, we found Ivan to corrected our previous mistakes. Our property was a fixer, but Ivan took charge, and got it sold.”

Courtney F.

San Clemente Home Owner

“What I liked most about having Ivan Larco represent me in the purchase of my home was that he looked out for my best interest. Ivan was relentless and laser focused on my criteria and goals. Ivan firmly negotiated every aspect of my purchase all the way up to the repairs negotiation and ensured that my new home would be in top shape prior to my move in.”

Sherry M.

Northwood Irvine Home Owner

“I’ve been so deeply impressed by Ivan Larco’s rich knowledge and experience in the field of real estate. He offered me great service on my real estate needs with efficient and successful result. He is the right person you can trust in real estate service.”

Jennifer R.

Aliso Viejo Home Owner

“Ivan Larco is on point! He is thorough, punctual, and has excellent follow-up. Ivan asked all the right questions in the beginning to determine our likes and dislikes. He never slacked and we truly felt like his top priority from beginning till end. He negotiated for us an outstanding deal and was a pleasure to work with along the way. I would highly recommend Ivan to anyone looking for a home.”

Max & Tristen M.

Aliso Viejo Home Owners

“My family and I were very blessed by having Ivan Larco and his team find a way to get us out of our condo and into a home. When the seller, of the home we wanted, said he was taking it off the market, we were so disappointed. However, Ivan contacted the seller’s agent and got us an even better deal that included the seller paying for our closing costs. That was amazing! In addition, Ivan was also able to secure a lease for our condo with a deposit check, so that we could close our escrow in as quick as 30 days! Thanks Ivan, for all of your hard work!”
