Move Manager

Job Description: You help retirees relocate to smaller quarters, typically to an apartment or retirement community, by coordinating the move and configuring the new home setup. This means helping them choose which items in their present home to sell, donate or toss. You might even run their yard sale or shop for new furniture.

Median Pay Range: Fees range from $30 to $75 per hour, or more.

Qualifications: Knowledge of interior design is essential, and it helps to have an "in" with a local real estate agent to launch your business and to provide a steady clientele. The website of the National Association of Senior Move Managers can give you information about courses and — if you want it — certification.
