What Does Sibling Rivalry Have to do with Selling a Family Home?

What does “sibling rivalry” have to do with the sale of a family home?
 
As it turns out, quite a bit. 
 
In fact, in our experience, this has proven to be a key part of our work with families who hire us to sell their elderly parents’ home.  
 
In the last 10 years, we have experienced a significant rise in the number of adult children who have consulted and then retained us to list, stage, sell and close on their parents’ home, either after they have moved into a senior’s residence or, G-d forbid, passed away.  
 
The sort of work that we have done with families is highly specialized.  Often times, there are many different emotions at play which can influence and sometimes hinder the sale process.  Luckily, as a mother/daughter team, we have decades of experience helping adult children and their elderly parents manage the sale of their home - successfully, speedily and with the least amount of stress.   
 
We have faced the presence of sibling rivalry play out in our work, which has caused us to become sensitive, skilled and capable in managing the family dynamics.
 

As we know, siblings generally spend more time together during their childhood than they do as adults. The sibling bond is often complicated and is influenced by factors such as birth order, gender, personality and the relationship that each child had with the parents.  We have witnessed particularly intense family dynamics surrounding the sale of the family home.  At times, this is influenced by financial issues such as inheritances. At other times, the intense emotions stem from unresolved past issues, the loss of the family home or, even worse, the unexpected loss of the parents.

Whatever the underlying issues may be, an experienced realtor who is skilled in family dynamics, diplomacy and estate sales is critical to ensuring that all members of the family are treated equally, fairly and respectfully, whatever the outcome of the home sale is.  
 
If you are facing the prospect of selling your parents’ family home and/or moving them to a smaller residence such as a condominium, The Graff Girls would be pleased to assist you in transitioning your parents to their new home.
