Summer's Sneaking Up

Have the longer days got you dreaming about
summer vacation? Maybe taking the family
to the lake or a road trip to
visit family? Summer is just
around the corner, so now's
a great time to start
planning your summer
vacation.

Here are some tips and suggestions for planning this summer's adventures.

The Summer Solstice
June 21st is the longest day of the year and there are a variety of festivals and events around your community that can be a great experience for the whole family.

Time Away
The beautiful thing about Canada is that it has an abundance of summer getaways. You can pack up and go on a camping road trip through some of the most spectacular wilderness on the planet, or rent a cabin on a lake. Spending time like this with family or friends is a great way to maximize the experience.

Vacation on a Budget
If you vacation with family or friends, then sharing lodging is one way to help maximize your budget. Now is the time to start looking for the specials as well. With some planning ahead, you can certainly save on you vacation.

No matter what your plans are for summer, the most important part is to spend it together and to enjoy every moment.

All of us at Capital Direct wish you and your family a very happy summer.

Thinking About Listing?

Getting your home ready to list is important because a large percentage of buyers will decide on whether to look inside or not based on what they see on the outside.

If you're considering selling your home, here are some tips to help you improve the ‘curb appeal' of your property.

  • Remove mold, moss and mildew from sidewalks, stairs, roof and driveway.
  • Make sure windows are clean inside and out.
  • Clean dirty siding or decks with a pressure washer.
  • Keep the lawn and garden tidy.
  • Edge along flowerbeds and pathways.
  • Use lighting to enhance the home's appearance after dusk.

These are just a few of the most common and easy to do things that can help improve your home's curb appeal. If you can fit it into your budget, a fresh paint job to the exterior of your home will go a long way to improving curb appeal. Potential buyers will notice it and appraisers may value your home higher.
