When most people hear the words “Arizona” and “summer” in the same sentence, they probably just think of unbearable heat and being uncomfortable. While temps in Arizona do get pretty high in the summer, there are lots of cool and fun activities that this beautiful state has to offer. According to Planet Ware, there are 17 must see attractions in this beautiful state: The Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Phoenix, Hoover Dam, Jerome, Havasu Falls, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Bisbee, Lake Mead, Tombstone, Petrified Forest National Park, Saguaro National Park, Antelope Canyon, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and Tumacacori National Historical Park. All of these places are in different parts of the state and would allow someone to appreciate all the beauty Arizona has to offer.
Thinking of selling your home? If not, maybe you should. According to U.S. News & World Report U.S. News & World Report 2018 may just be the right time for you to sell your home for four reasons:

- Interest rates are currently low: lower interest rates are good for everyone. Rates aren’t predicted to spike this year, but they mayrise to 4.6% by the end of the year and 5% in 2019.

If you are considering a remodel make sure that the remodel is one for you and not one you are doing in the hopes of selling your home for more, because it’s unlikely that you will see a return for that investment.
