Traveling

There are many people who would love to take an extended vacation, or even move overseas for a time, but the logistics of planning the trip are too overwhelming. In addition to everything else, there is the little problem of what to do with your belongings. Some of them can go with you, but moving an entire house full of furniture would be far too expensive. If you have ever considered taking an extended vacation, or if you have considered moving to a new country for a few years, here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to your apartment or home.

Keep the Apartment

If you live in an area where rentals are hard to come by, or you have a fantastic apartment that you really don’t want to give up, hang on to it. You can hire a rental agency to manage the property while you are gone and you shouldn’t have to worry about a thing. Work with the agency to determine how much you should charge for rent; you may even come out ahead in the deal. This works especially well if you own the property and you don’t want to go through the trouble of trying to sell it.

Trend Investing

When it comes to investing, there are never “sure things.” Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably engaged in illegal activities, and you want to get as far away as possible, as soon as possible.

The fact that you can never guarantee a return on an investment shouldn’t keep you from investing altogether, though. While there is always some level of risk, there are ways that you can effectively evaluate investment opportunities and make smart choices. In fact, the secret to smart investing usually comes down to a few basic factors — most of which you learn in a Business 101 course.

Trends: The Key to Smart Investments

If you’re a new investor, it might feel like everyone you know has a different approach to choosing which companies in which to invest. However, one of the most effective approaches is to look at trends. Trend investing involves looking at the overall direction of stock prices over time — whether they go up or down — and then riding the wave of upward trends.

Because trend following relies mostly on technical analysis, and looks at overall performance over time, many trend followers don’t pay a lot of attention to the individual factors that often predict how a particular company will perform over time. The most successful investors, though, often use a combination of approaches. By gauging performance with tools found on sites like www.trendsinvesting.com, combined with analysis of business basics, it’s easier to make solid investment decisions that are more likely to create higher dividends.

Before staking that “For Sale” sign in your front lawn, consider a few renovation projects that will return the best bang for your buck. At the onset, it can seem like a daunting and endless list, but consider only those remodeling projects that will help you sell your home quickly and at asking price. Because unfortunately, just because you put $20,000 into renovations doesn’t guarantee you’ll recoup the same value (though expect about 80 to 90 percent if you choose wisely!) The key to adding value is to focus on what’s most important to a buyer, rather than what may be important to you.

Boosting Curb Appeal

First, let’s discuss curb appeal. Potential buyers judge your home on that first drive-by, and an attractive first impression can lure people into that all-important open house. According to Bankrate.com, a good first impression can add 5 to 10 percent to the value of your property. If the exterior color of your home is fading, fix that first. Choose exterior paints and details that match the period and style of your home, while making sure another house on the block doesn’t already have those colors. Another easy fix is updating your front door with a new color of paint and new hardware. This will help set up a buyer to envision the first time they walk into their new home and start their new life.

July 14, 2014
Employee Health

As technology, globalism and the “machining” of the American worker continue to demand increasing productivity and cost savings, it’s common for businesses to skimp where they can in order to stay lean and competitive. And while the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act requires businesses to provide employees with healthcare, it still remains […]
