Content removal and/or estate liquidation

Often this is a responsibility left to a surviving child (or family), who has been identified as the Power of Attorney (POA) or Estate Executor. Along with that comes the task to properly attend to the items left behind. This is a difficult challenge often mixed with emotion and limited time resources. Whether you are across the country or right down the road, we can help you with the decisions.

Organizing and de-cluttering your home

Senior Transition Services is often called upon to help a home owner organize and declutter a house in preparation for sale.  By carefully removing the accumulated clutter that could easily distract a prospective buyer from seeing the actual size and attractive amenities of a house, a much better impression about the true beauty of the property is made.  Realtors frequently tell their clients that decluttering helps sell a house more quickly.

"I have been a customer of New Horizon since April 2008. I just wanted to say thank you to them for their much appreciated assistance every time I need something and for everything she has done to help my family in making the best decisions possible in regards to the storage of my cousins belongings after her traggic auto accident. Her advice and guidance has been a Godsend. Thanks!"
