Father's Day Is Changing, For Good 🪒

 


It is 2022 and dad doesn’t want a tie and probably hasn’t since 1955. According to TheShelf.com, in 2020 ties were finally beaten as the most frequently gifted Father’s Day item. The pandemic caused self-care gifts for dad to be the new king of gifts.

So, what does dad really want now?

Fatherhood today is a study of evolution. Dads lead, guide, protect and love more than ever. Most new dads know how to play Minecraft and are willing to battle creepers and morning traffic to give kids what they need. So it makes sense that ties and razors are no longer the most desired gifts.

Dads today are more apt to appreciate brands like Lego and Levi’s over Barbasol and Gillette. But what they really want is time and experiences with people who matter to them. You’re better off giving your presence for a cool family experience (think - a day by the water or a trip to an artisan ice cream shop).

When asked, most dads indicated they'd love to have a meal with their kids. It doesn’t even have to be somewhere special; the go-to family restaurant or diner is just fine.

Whether you are celebrating a dad who is 26 or 60, it seems that the gift of time with family and friends will never go out of style.

Happy Father's Day!


Buying a Home This Summer?

 


Summer is in full swing, which means it's prime season for buying a home. If you're in the market, I wanted to share a few reminders about the extra expenses of buying a home. Check out the link below to learn more about these expenses you may not think about.



Buying a home is always an exciting experience. It's the largest investment you'll make. Please don't be surprised by these extra expenses. If you're ready, I'll guide you through the entire process to ensure you're in the know. Give me a call or text me to start your home search.






Is Your Home Eco-Friendly?

 


When you think of being "green," what do you picture? Is it recycling as much as possible or using solar panels on your roof? I wanted to share a few simple ways to make your home eco-friendly without splurging on extensive home upgrades like solar panels or the most efficient appliances. So, in honor of Earth Day, here are four simple ways to make your home more eco-friendly.

Switching to LED lightbulbs will make your home more efficient and eco-friendly. As a bonus, you'll save a lot on your monthly budget.


Rather than using hot water to wash your clothes, use cold. According to EnergyStar, 90% of the energy used in your washer is from water heating up. So skip the hot water to reduce CO2 emissions; your clothes will be just fine. While you're at it, you can decrease how much you use your drier.

Did you know plants do a lot more for your home than add a little decorative flavor? They help keep your air clean.

Using window treatments can add more style to your home, but they can also help insulate your home and improve efficiency. Heavier curtains or blinds can keep the cold air out and the hot air in your home.

If you're looking for a way to save more on your monthly bills and be a little more eco-friendly, try these ideas. If you're looking for a newer, more efficient home, start fresh this spring with a new home. I'll help you find your next efficient home. Shoot me a text or give me a call to talk about your move.
