Here in the Midwest, School is finally out for the summer. My Kids are planning for their first day to sleep in. My daughter is starting her summer job. My son is planning for his time with buddies and my youngest is awaiting the arrival of four chickens. My wife is acting as concierge for this adventure, and we are laughing at the flurry of activity that awaits.
Summer is a great time for planning for grown ups as well. Many job and home decisions are made during the summer. As a person buying a home, it is important to be settled in prior to the beginning of a new school year. Your realtor can help you to analyze the various school districts in your area and also assist in showing the features of the various towns and suburbs.
As a home seller, it is important to plan for keeping you home show ready. Gardening, cleaning and traveling are all issues that appear during the summer. If one stays on top of it, showings are but minor interruptions to your funfilled summer adventures.
Summer is great. Life slows a bit, people relax and changes appear like the beautiful summer flowers. Be prepared to enjoy your summer and if you are buying or selling a home, Allow the summer to be your friend.
