Summer is here.......sunny skies........schools out.........fun in the sun.......road trips.......ice cream....cotton candy.........kettle corn ....music festivals and more!! Summer is the opportune time for families to relocate.....or plan a road trip to visit family and friends in different states. I usually, plan our family trips to go down to San Diego to see my nephew. The sandy beaches of San Diego.....the tacos and margaritas in the sun....just sound delicious and refreshing. I can feel the sun on my face!
As a homeowner, summer is also the opportune time to do home maintenance.....whether it is cleaning the gutters.......cleaning the roof.....painting.......or re-finishing the deck. There a lot of home maintenance projects that need to be done, not just ton maintain a clean home but also to ensure that you are protecting your investment. Your home is one major investment that everyone does in their lifetime.....some people move a lot and buy/sell their homes.....some people choose to live in one home for more than thirty (30) years. Which one are you?
In my experience, I believer that there are three types of homeowners: 1) the Settler - their home is immaculate, clean and tidy, they have invested in extending that deck or creating an outdoor retreat or indoor retreat... "their personal touches show" because they are going to live there forever...; 2) The Hoarder - their home is filled to the brim with things.......every room has furniture and things; no room is left behind...every room is filled to capacity, it may look like hoarding.....or an organized mess.....whichever they believe; 3) the Stager - this is the person that treats their home like a hotel.....it looks neat, orderly.....even beautiful.....but there is no "personal touch" - the home lacks the "feel good" vibe of a home that has been lived in.....it's "staged" because in their lives....they move a lot....they are nomads.....they don't want to settle.
Irregardless, take this summer time to enjoy the sun, do some home maintenance and decide whether it is time to upgrade, downsize or move! Give me a call and let me help you on this journey of investments and home-ownership!
