Last week I was talking with a friend of mine in Florida and expected that things would be quiet since fewer people than normal were traveling this year. Instead, she told me that their community was actually busier than ever because every beach house had been secured as long term rentals by people fleeing the cities, especially from New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. This got me thinking about all the different things you'd need to consider before making a jump from renting to actually buying a beach house as your weekend home. Let's take a look.

    Everyone can do their part and while some things are easier than others, right now is a great time to think about doing "something" to save energy around the house. For folks like me here in Southern California, August and September are two months of the year where I suddenly become acutely aware of the costs involved with keeping cool. While the rest of the year is pretty easy, with the hot desert air coming over the mountains and the ocean water unable to cool things down since it has been heating all summer long, it gets hot and stays hot. Since I am generally forced to have my AC running full blast to keep cool that results in electric bills that are often more than $300 per month! However, there are still plenty of ways to offset that cost, so let's check them out!
