Home Owners: How to save $ this summer!

May Real Estate on the Cheap: See if one of these ideas could help you save for that awesome family vacation or for your future dream home.



Spring is flying by, which means summer is right around the corner. Although you are excited for the ultimate beach side vacation or theme park adventure - you are dreading the expenses that will come along with it. Here are some possible money saving tips for you!


1. Grow some of your own food
May could be the best time to plant most vegetables you would want in a home garden.  Corn, squash and tomatoes are just a few idealistic foods for these type gardens. In comparing to grocer prices ... it is sure to be a money saver for the family.


2.  Team up with the neighbors
If you plan to higher a landscaper or lawn care service this summer, ask your neighbors if they have similar plans, and ask about multiple customer discounts.

If you have four or five people come together and contact a lawn service, you have 'group buying power.'

That servicemen can recognize the benefit of having several customers in the same area and often times will give you a better price.

Use that same tactic if several neighbors are planning on pressure washing or resealing their decks or getting the sprinklers serviced. Most homeowners in your area will have similar yard-maintenence needs.


3. Rent out your home ( for the truly brave )
While you are off vacationing through out the summer, why not let someone else live in your home and take care of it while you are gone, in exchange for some 'Cold Hard Cash'

Require non refundable deposits, Set rules and regulations, legally signed contracts and such to ensure care of your home. In return, use the money made to pay for your 'own' fantastic getaway!
