Summer is great for vacations. The weather is almost perfect wherever you may chose to go. Most destinations are fully staffed and ready to take care of your every desire to ensure well earned rest and relaxation. A slew of pictures and memories will be recorded into your cyber data storage to remind you of the good times with family and friends.
Something else happens during the summer vacation season. Local retailers are fighting for business and are willing to offer all kinds of deals to cash in on some of those “vacation dollars.” Plus, there is another bonus. Retailers are always moving inventory a bit ahead of the peak selling season. Translation: upgrade your garden furniture towards the end of summer. This holds especially true if you’re planning on selling your #BayArea Peninsula home.
The real bonus comes with building materials. There are sure to be big discounts on basic building materials as well as a host of specials aimed at home improvement projects. An overlooked home equity strategy which often pays off in big dividends, is to use some of that built up vacation time to spend a week or so getting home improvement and update projects done. The key is to work on projects that will take longer than a day but less than a week to complete. These are perfect for what I like to call a summer “renovacation!” If undertaken with a little advance planning, getting those myriad of projects done can free up a few extra weekends of fun and rejuvenation throughout the rest of the year. The added time and savings from your "renovacation" will allow you to enjoy a few mini-vacations during fall and winter!
