Twitter is an excellent resource for the Sandwich Generation, with plenty of useful tweeple (twitter people), links, and info about a wide range of caregiving topics. At SandwichINK, I do a weekly article with the best caregiving and grandparenting links for the week from Twitter. It’s also a great resource for the Sandwich Generation when it comes to real estate info and, starting today, I’ll be doing an article periodically about all things Twitter, real estate, and Sandwich Generation. The topics can range from buyers to sellers to renters and even to real estate agents and investors.

And YES, I’d love to have you join the conversation with us at Twitter by following me @SandwichINK. See you soon! 🙂

Then again, perhaps you are trying to sell your own empty house from a distance, along with caregiving, grandparenting, and all the other duties familiar to those of us in the Sandwich Generation?

In March, I shared some helpful tips for caregivers in the Sandwich Generation over at SandwichINK. They are things I’ve learned when trying to sell my house in the past, as well as those I learned while recently working through the process from a distance. In all but one of the transactions I was a caregiver dealing with aging parents and grandkids, so it’s a topic I know up close and personal.

  • Why it’s important to be sure you have a good real estate agent.
