    Reasons To Consider Investing In Rental Property In Today’s Market

    The real estate market is constantly changing, with investment approaches shifting as new market trends and area-specific information drive change. What worked twenty, fifteen or even five years ago may not work now or in the new year to come. Successful real estate investors need to constantly consider market trends in order to continue growing within their industry.

    The Real Estate Market Could Crash In The Next Few Years (Or Sooner)

    There are many signs that another real-estate market crash is on the horizon. Zero or low down payment mortgages are again becoming a thing. Real estate prices have risen dramatically while incomes have basically stagnated, which suggests a lot of people may be getting in over their heads. With market conditions changing it makes sense to invest in rental properties in 2019.

    Increased Demand For Rentals Due To The Shift In The Market

    Most young home buyers are more savvy than you may think and realize that this is not the right time to purchase due to the market trend - higher interest rates historically bring down the home value , therefore the demand for rentals will increase in the New Year as it is becoming apparent that purchasing may not be the way to go for now.
    In the past the thinking process was that if home prices go down, you can just sit tight for a couple of years until they come up again. In my opinion those home buyers should be prepared for a long wait. I have a friend who bought a house...

    The Importance of Maintenance and Upkeep of Your Home

    One of the most valuable assets that you own or will own one day is your home. However, with our hectic lifestyle, it is easy to overlook the maintenance and upkeep of your home. As a homeowner, you are expected to spend anywhere between 1% - 4% of your home’s value on maintenance and upkeep of your home yearly.

     

    There are a number of benefits to performing regular maintenance and upkeep of your home to avoid potential disastrous situations.

     

    1. Money & Headaches

    Regular maintenance can avoid something breaking down later on which most probably will incur even more costs. Take for example, if you do not perform periodic maintenance of your heating and cooling system, eventually it will break down and replacing it is not cheap!

     

    2. Time, Time, Time

     Not just cost, unexpected breakdowns usually take more time to be fixed. You may be saving a few hours here and there by foregoing the regular maintenance and upkeep of your home but once it catches up with you, it can lead to more time to be spent fixing the problem and a boatload of frustration.

     

    3. Value of Your Home

     Your home value is dependent on the current condition of the home. You may think that you are...

    Importance Of Being Creative And Diversifying Your Content

    We've all heard the saying "content is king." This is very true, but to expand on it we like to say "effective and creative content is king." This blog will be explaining the different types of content, the importance of being diverse, creative, and original, and the importance of not spamming the same content.

    Video

    Video content is extremely powerful. It allows you to be extremely creative. Also, with YouTube has an extremely large audience and it is completely free to post there, with no limit on the time of your content. You can create a video an hour long and post it there, where on Instagram you can only post a video that is 60 seconds or less. 

    Originality

    BE ORIGINAL!!! You can take ideas from other people who are being successful with their content but you need to put your own personal twist on it. If you are just copying other people you will come off as lazy or repetitive and people will be less likely to engage. People are on these social media platforms to be entertained, not to see the same thing over and over again.

    Audio

    Don't forget about audio content. The best way to make audio content is to start a podcast (which we are in the process of creating, stay tuned...) Podcasts are powerful because they do not require a lot of commitment for users to engage with. A video you have to watch and listen so you can not be doing other...
