Summer lovin, happened so fast! How you can make it last.

Summer is officially in its final countdown, stores are geared up for “back to school” and I even dare to say I saw a Christmas decorations being added to the isles at Costco (insert eye roll)!

If you are one of the lucky ones, you have manged to take some time and get away and enjoy some fun in the sun. Whether you call it a cottage, a cabin or a camp, when the temperature begins to rise, the dreams of sitting on the dock at a place of your own start this time of year….. If your wondering how to make your dream a reality this post is for you.

Well…. lets talk truths, if you don’t have the cash on hand to buy one outright, you’ll have to borrow the money, (enter me) I can help with that, and while the basic process of applying for and qualifying for a mortgage are the same, lenders will look at many more variables when assessing a property before lending money to buy a cottage.

As always, if you have questions never hesitate to get in touch. I’m here to help you turn that summer real estate lovin into more than just a one night stand 🙂
