Happy Father's Day to Dads of all ages! Some of you can't wait for your "special" day to arrive while others don't even realize that it has come and gone. Many take the opportunity to get out & have a free day of fishing on that special day while others just kick back and relax on the patio. Many take the time to remember their father who has passed on and celebrate the life he lived. I was just told about a story this week about a family that celebrates their dad's birthday every year around this time, even though he passed away several years ago, with a big party remembering all the great times they had.
So how does Father's Day affect the real estate market? Well, it can in different ways. Many families will take off for the weekend so viewings of properties tend to be fewer on that particular weekend. But there is also the other factor where this is the chance for the Dad to see the properties he wants (the one with the huge shop or the full out mancave in the basement.) Sometimes this is a day that makes one stop & think about where they are in life, where their children are and how everyone has grown up so quickly. This can be a time when "downsizing" starts to come into the equation so you may receive the call that "it is time to downsize".
So to many, this special day has many meanings. To Hallmark, it is golden. So enjoy this great weekend however you choose and if you start thinking about house hunting or that it is time to switch things up and sell, do not hesitate to call.
Happy Father's Day!
