Presentations provided tips to take the stress out of selling a home

GOSHEN, N.Y. (March 26, 2018) – On Thursday, March 22, Glen Arden hosted an informational session geared toward people preparing to sell their homes. The event included presentations and tips by real estate and moving professionals, as well as a selection of related vendors offering additional information and offer of services to those interested. A large audience filled Glen Arden’s Rhinebeck Room for the event.

“The process of selling a home can be overwhelming for anyone,” said Lois DiStefano, Glen Arden’s Director of Sales. “That’s especially true for empty nesters or anyone letting go of a longtime family home. We were glad this seminar could alleviate some of that stress for people.”

Donna Gennaro, an associate broker with Rand Realty was one of the day’s main presenters. She provided attendees with valuable insights into current real estate market trends. Thomas Santoro, from House Detector Home Inspector, gave a presentation on preparing a property for inspection.

“I really liked the presentation from the realtor, Donna Gennaro,” said Ms. Audrey Saverese, an attendee. “She made it very clear how to go through the steps of selling a home, and was easy to understand.”

Getting organized for a move can make a home seller feel as though they don’t know where to begin. Colleen Ashe, of Ashe Organizing Solutions, shared her tips for making sure everything is in order for a smooth move. Presenters also focused on downsizing, including making donations as part of the process.

“The most important information I learned today were the steps to downsizing,” said attendee Ms. Barbara Korycki. “It doesn’t have to be stressful.”

Additional presenters and vendors who took part were Certified Interior Designer Betsy Ross, Michael Bauer, of Scan Advantage, who discussed document imaging and management, and Cathy Eschbacher, from Triangle Movers.
