San Francisco, CA – May 12, 2016 – On Saturday, June 4, the Larkspur Library will host a forum for seniors entitled Empty Nest, What’s Next? The event will be at 11 a.m. at the Library, located at 400 Magnolia Avenue. The forum will be held in the City Council Chambers, and it is free and open to the public.

Sue Dwight, Senior Living Specialist at Zephyr Real Estate in Marin, is one of the featured speakers. She will discuss housing options for empty nesters: staying at home, moving to a smaller home, condo or apartment, or possibility moving to a senior community. She is well versed in the many types of senior options, their costs and their qualifications. She has over 10 years’ experience with independent living communities that offer a continuum of care (CCRCs).

David Hellman, attorney and certified public accountant, will address the often-asked question, “Can I afford to move?” He will focus on estate planning and taxation laws, with emphasis on capital gains issues. He is a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law and in Tax Law by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

In the Bay Area State of the Region Report from the Association of Bay Area Governments, the average age of the population here and across the country is rising as more and more Baby Boomers retire or semi-retire. Marin County has the highest median age in the Bay Area, and population growth since 2000 has been largely in the age groups 50 and over. Real estate decisions and quality of life planning consequently becomes more and more important.

“We are grateful to the Larkspur Library for offering this informative event for our community,” commented Erinn Millar, Sales Manager at the Marin office. “Sue has a wealth of information and network contacts in her repertoire.”
