An investment in real estate is a safe, tangible investment that promises you years of returns that can easily diversify your portfolio. You’ll see continuing gains without risk, freeing you up to take other investment opportunities or merely let the profits continue to roll in hassle-free.

Real estate is a great investment for many reasons. You can enjoy an excellent rate of returns, amazing tax advantages and leverage real estate to build your wealth.

HERE ARE THE TOP FIVE REASONS WHY REAL ESTATE IS A GREAT INVESTMENT.

 1 Low Risks, High Returns

Compared to other investment options, real estate has a proven track record of being one of the safest, while still being profitable too. Real estate investments are non-volatile and instead of fluctuating or out of your control like the stock exchange, property value only goes up over time. That means you’ll see earnings of an average of 5- 10% per year, guaranteeing you’ll be making high returns for low risk, for life.

2 Tangible Assets

The land you invest in only gets more valuable over time, ensuring your investments are always growing. Even in the worst unseen cases, you can always find policies to ensure investments money are safe.

Mary was having a hard time with her kitchen, since its looks like a war zone!(her description) .She was having difficulties in arranging her kitchen, plus her in  laws were  coming over, that did not make things easier.

 ‘Small kitchens can be a challenge” was what I said to her when she came to ask for advice,  “Tell me about it Paul, I mean a kitchen is supposed to be my  safe space, but now it feels like  prison” I could see from her  facial expression , it was really stressing her out.

A house that needs cleaning is an un-welcomed distraction from living life to its fullest. Piles of dirty laundry or dirty table clothes in the living room can dull the day’s accomplishments. Clean homes make it easier to find lost items and allow the mind to relax.

How to prepare

Keep your favorite cleaners, buckets, detergent and whatever else you need in buckets or decorative baskets in high traffic areas. With these readily available, 10 minutes of immediate   cleaning can make a difference. Select optimal times for you and family members to dedicate to cleaning. It can be once a day, week or month.

Living room

 Place baskets strategically throughout the room for toys, remotes and whatever else tends to collect. Vacuuming and dusting the living room at least once a week puts an emphasis on picking up stray items. Get into the habit of neatening up at the end of the evening as part of a winding down routine to banish clutter.

A Property Manager is an individual or company who is hired by a landlord or property investor to manage the day-to-day operations at rental property for a fee. Their exact responsibilities will vary based on the type of property they are managing, the amount they are getting paid and the terms of the management contract.

 Avoiding bad tenants, lawsuits and scams is by far one of the main benefits that come with hiring a professional property manager.

       1 Better screening for tenants.

 Many people who own rental homes assume that they can handle their property management themselves. This is sometimes true; however we have the resources and the experience to screen tenants. This leads to higher quality tenants who stay on the property longer, pay rent more reliably, and create less damage.

The rise of social stories has opened up an opportunity for entrepreneurs and major brands alike to take their marketing to a new level. Social stories are short-term content pieces that live up to  24 hours on Facebook and Instagram.
