Coronavirus Cancelled Vacation Turns Into An Upgraded Staycation
What happens when you have to cancel a vacation because of the dangerous and dreaded Coronavirus? Well, with a recent buyer, it turns out that the money saved is being used for a staycation that will be enjoyed now and for many years to come.
In case you are not familiar with the term staycation, it basically refers to enjoying a vacation in your own home (or hometown). Here are some homes for sale in our area where you could "staycate" for years:

Social Distancing Due To The Coronavirus
One of the saddest terms I've learned in recent months is "social distancing." It's used to describe actions recommended by Public Health officials for the purpose of slowing or stopping the spread of contagious diseases like the Coronavirus.
I find it sad that such a term even exists, as our high-tech society has already been moving towards offline distancing in favor of online engagement. But until there is a cure for the Coronavirus, much of the social distancing advice seems to be pretty wise.
They Turned Bad News Into A Staycation
Recently, we met with a married couple who refused to let a canceled vacation turn into a pity party. Instead, they used the money they would have spent on their trip abroad as a downpayment on a home with a pool.
They advised us that since they could not take their family on a vacation right now, they would invest the money on a long-term staycation instead. When you consider their upgraded surroundings and combine it with the above-average rate of appreciation they will enjoy, the decision will become the gift that keeps on giving.
They said the move made sense due to historic-low mortgage interest rates and the availability of cash that they no longer were going to use for a vacation. Staycation indeed!
If you want help determining whether or not you can turn a canceled vacation into a permanent staycation, just let us know. We can help you evaluate your options and perhaps get you into a home that you will love for many years to come.
