This event has been canceled.  While convening events such as this is a core part of our mission, we have changed our approach in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

We want you to know that AARP is providing information and resources to help older people and caregivers protect themselves from the virus and prevent its spread. You can find AARP's coronavirus resources at www.aarp.org/coronavirus. We also point you to www.cdc.gov/coronavirus, and your state and local health agencies for the latest information.

Has your situation changed, or do you wish to make your living arrangements simpler? One of the first things to consider in the downsizing process is what to do with all the “stuff” you have accumulated over the years. • When should you start the process of downsizing of your possessions? • How do you make the decision of what to keep, give away, sell or just toss? • What are your options? • What do you do with all your paperwork and records? If you are planning to sell your house and move to a smaller more accommodating place, here are some things to consider: • When’s the best time to sell? • How to get your house show ready. • What’s important in considering a realtor? • What goes into pricing your home and getting a contract in place? • How to decide on the right buyer and why the buyer’s lender is important. Presenters: Lisa & Bob Novosad, Novosad Realty Partners Gourmet coffee, hot tea and pastries provided by AARP.
