   Visit our new section ...

Buying or selling a home can be a daunting task for anyone. Not only is it one of the largest financial transactions in a person's life, it can be difficult emotionally for a senior who is moving from his or her home or for caregivers who must sell their own “childhood” home on behalf of their parents.

The FamilyCare Real Estate Section provides unbiased information concerning the legal, financial, logistical and emotional aspects of family real estate and housing and helps you protect one of your most valuable and treasured assets.
