Happy first day of the month! Can you believe we're already in the month of August?? Time will definitely fly by us since the end of the year is filled with plenty of holiday and school/work events!

So you're probably wondering, what does my home worth have to do with the rest of the year and the monsoon season? Well, unfortunately the monsoon season leaves our homes with damages from time to time, or your home is becoming a little too old to be going through the same repairs over and over again. Maybe it's time to upgrade to a bigger home because the entire family is coming over for the holidays. Regardless of the reason, it's important to know if it's financially the right time to be looking for a new home!
