Declare Your Independence From Rent This July 4th

Every July 4th Weekend, we celebrate our independence from the rule of Great Britain all those years ago. Cookouts, parades, fireworks and fun—intended to not only remind us that at one point we weren’t a free a country, but also an opportunity for families across our great nation to enjoy ourselves, a release from the daily grind of work, paying bills and fulfilling our daily obligations.  Yes, July 4th is meant to be fun, and here at Coldwell Banker Innovations we hope you enjoy this mid-summer holiday. After all, no longer do we have to be concerned about the Crown posting Red Coats on every street corner, or being frustrated by “taxation without representation”. Hopefully the only tea on your mind will be the fresh brew poured over ice helping you cool off poolside!

But, for some of us, we do still live under the daily rule of an evil tyrant; a monthly monster that demands to be fed, eating into your bank account with a hunger that often leaves us wondering why we continue to appease this hideous beast. Yes, you guessed it, we’re talking about that dirty four letter word that makes everyone cringe: RENT.  There is, however, a solution to banish this vicious enemy once and for all.
