AND, if you don’t know what movie that is from… well, maybe I am getting old! Are you “Standin on a corner in Winslow, Arizona?” Maybe you’re staying this summer at the “Hotel California.. and, will you ever leave?” Are you “Leaving on a Jet plane?” Do you know when you’ll be back home again?
Enough already. Right? When I thought about this blog, my mind immediately went to all of the songs I know from over the years that talk about travel and places to visit In fact, almost every single state is referenced someplace in a song. “I wanna be a part of it, New York, New York…..”
Let’s face it. Once Memorial Day arrives, our minds wander. We think of picnics, and beaches, and ice cream socials, and well, anything but work!
What does that mean from a Real Estate perspective? Do you have the water off in your home if you are going to be gone longer than a few days? Have you turned the AC up so that it doesn’t run constantly? (This is particularly true in Tucson!) Do you have pet care figured out? And/or can you take your pets with you as you travel? What about your mail? Is it being forwarded to your summer residence? Is someone picking it up for you if you are just gone for a few weeks? Will some lights automatically come on so your home still looks inhabited?
Summer will be best spent and best remembered if you figure out these details that will not affect the pleasure of your experience.
If you are new to Tucson and need some help, please message me and I will do my best to introduce you to people who help with those details, including checking on your home while you are gone for the summer.
Meanwhile.. can you match the photo to the song? AND, truthfully, are you singing in your head right now? Or, maybe even out loud?
PS. There are 2 songs here made famous by the same group of artists. But, one of them was written co-written by my “friend” Jackson Browne. Do you know which song this is?
