Seems to be a marketing ploy for:
1) realtors to find and pressure people to sell their homes
2) sales folks from the various senior housing options to plug their offerings.
This is NOT an unbiased event. These speakers are not representing your interests! They are trying to earn commissions!!!
And the newspaper is giving them free advertising. Can I have some free adv for my business too???

If you sell your house and move to a retirement community, an agent will sell your house to a buyer who pays cash in exchange for a lower price and a quicker commission for the agent.

Avenidas supports seniors in many ways. Many people downsize before an accident in the home occurs - like the fall and broken hip which leads to an abrupt entry into a nursing home. The housing conference sounds like it provides information about other options that may be preferable for responsible seniors.
