Selling a home is typically very stressful for the homeowner. Selling a home and relocating to an assisted living community or a 55+ community takes an already stressful situation and adds additional concern. Senior transition can be incredibly overwhelming to the entire family, not just the senior. The Davenport Group recognizes this issue and designed a program specifically to eliminate as many headaches as possible during this stressful time.
We meet with one new 55 and up, independent living, assisted living, luxury senior living, or memory care community every week and interview them to find the best facilities for our clients. We do not accept any form of financial incentive from these facilities as we feel that if we were to accept a fee we no longer would be providing an unbiased opinion for our clients. We have also developed a network of qualified companies that partner alongside us to make the transition as smooth as possible.
We understand that you have a choice when hiring a professional to help you sell a home and we truly appreciate the opportunity to present this unique program and the results we’ve achieved for our clients. Regardless of the price of the home you are selling or purchasing when you hire The Davenport Group as your Realtor® you, your family, and your home – will be prepared for a successful sale.

1. Initial Consultation
We will meet with you, and any relevant family members, to provide a complimentary home evaluation. We will then review your time frames and strategize the best plan of action. If you have not decided on an assisted living facility, we have met and toured numerous facilities and can help guide you to the facility that best fits your needs and lifestyle.
2. Taking Inventory
After we determine which items you will be taking with you, our estate sale specialist will then work with you on what you would like to sell, keep, and donate. This includes a free estate appraisal and then we will schedule the estate sale if desired.
3. Getting Organized
Once the time frames have been determined we will schedule our professional stager to go through the home with you. They will work with you to determine what items you would like to take with you to your new space as well as what items your family would like to keep.
4. Getting Ready to Sell
Now that all of your belongings have been organized, you will work with any trade services to make any necessary repairs or upgrades to the property to get the house in the best condition to maximize your profit. We have relationships with many contractors, some of which will accept payment for their completed services at closing.
ShowingTime is an App that gives you the control of showings and lets you determine the best times for your schedule.
This system verifies that the agent is licensed and in good standing, making it the most secure showing in Georgia and allows you to approve showings via your phone, email or text message.
To maximize your homes exposure, 60 of your closest neighbors will get a personal letter letting them know your home just came on the market.
