30 Jul What is summer for? Reflection or disconnection.
Summer has finally arrived. One way or another, we all take advantage of this time of the year to take a few days off, to change our usual activity and take the opportunity to travel, relax, practice a hobby, hang out with friends or family and especially to disconnect from our day to day .
Do we really rest on our hoped-for holidays? Whatever, the important thing is to forget routines, to forget our day to day, get a change of environment, look for new landscapes, have other schedules, retake abandoned activities, travel far, fly in every possible way, discover special places, distance ourselves or find ourselves, enjoy , whether we rest or not.
This change of activity, space and time is a disconnection in itself, a change that allows us to get away, relax and enjoy, although in some cases it can be exhausting. But it is also a good time to reflect because what better moment than now, away from our day to day and far from home. The scenarios are always better from the distance!
Take the opportunity to analyze where we stand, both personally and professionally, where we want to be in the short and medium term, now is the time to open up, analyze our assets and establish an action plan to achieve our goals.
And if we are considering an investment, if one of our issues is making the decision to change homes, to invest in housing, or to make the change from renting to ownership, this time of year can be a good occasion to analyze our needs and options.
Analyze your alternatives, research the market, raise expectations and above all, take note of all your doubts and uncertainties to consult with a specialist.
- Should I sell my house and buy myself a bigger one?
- Do I want to live downtown or on the quieter outskirts?
- Should I keep renting and buy a small house as an investment?
- Do I look for financing and buy as an investment?
- Should I buy in the city or in a tourist area?
- In the centre or further away?
These are some of the reflections that we might want to have, once we are far from the hyperactivity of the «school term».
Let’s take advantage of these days to disconnect, but also to find moments for reflection. It is a good time to establish our roadmap for the new school term.
If one of your projects is to invest in real estate, go ahead, the end of the summer is a good time to get down to work. And if you need advice, consult a Real Estate Personal Shopper.
