I am a young “baby boomer” who is trying to get back in the realty scene again, after being married to my high school sweetheart for 30 years I need to sell my house
I didn’t know how hard it would be and how things have changed.
I hesitantly went on a few home selling sites, after my children all convinced me this was the way to go today. Boy, did I get a wake up call! The men I have met have all been liars and con artists. They either lie about their age, post a picture of what they looked like 20 years ago, or want only one thing.
Is this what it is like for “baby boomers” who have been out of the scene for years? If so, I think I’ll pass !
Dear Disillusioned Dina,
Home sales is very different than it was years ago. Although courting someone and getting to know them has been around since the beginning of time, priorities and values have changed for many
Unfortunately, the method of meeting someone, going on numerous open houses and taking your time to get to know them, is pretty much a thing of the past.
Today, it is not uncommon for a woman to pursue a man and to have a relationship in the early stages.
Although it is not this way with everyone, it makes it hard for people like you and me, who still have certain values.
I have known many people who have been successful on home repair sites to sell your house in Citrus Park, but the odds of finding that special someone is not good.
I suggest volunteering or joining social groups where you can meet people with the same likes as you. Although it is scary for Baby Boomers to start selling their homes again, life goes on after a divorce or death. These are supposed to be the “golden years.” Be cautious but have fun.
