Money-Saving Tips for Moving

February 3, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

When it comes to a new home, most buyers immediately think about the hefty mortgage that they’re going to have to pay over the next 15 to 30 years. But, another cost you have to consider is the cost of moving from your old house to your new one. Purchasing a new home is stressful enough as it is, relocation doesn’t need to add to it. Here are some tips that will save you some money on your next move.

DIY versus Hiring a Moving Company

This is one of the first things that you should think about. Most objects you’ll probably be able to carry yourself, but larger items may require help from a professional mover or a friend. Research the various DIY options and compare them with professional movers. Obviously you’ll want to choose a company that is reputable and trustworthy, but take the time to obtain multiple quotes and also select a time that’s convenient – stay away from rush hour.

Obtain a Firm Quote

If you’re deciding on going with a moving service, make sure you get a final quote from them. Don’t settle with a rough estimation, as you’re going to see it only go upwards when all is said and done.

Downsize

It’s important to downsize whenever you move. The less that you bring with you, the less you’ll have to worry about when it comes to settling into your new home. The old items that you can part with, you can also sell for some money on the side. Essentially, this is a good time to hold a yard sale or even donate to a group that accepts items.

When it comes to running your business, if you’re like most owners, you spend a decent amount of time thinking about the future. This probably involves a lot of success: higher profits, more employees, maybe another office, some awards, plenty of accolades, etc. Chances are these kinds of daydreams are one of the reasons you started your own business in the first place. It’s good to have these kinds of thoughts, too, because they can help you get through rough times.

However, you need to be looking forward for other reasons as well. Looking ahead is the only way to consider all the risks your business faces. That, in turn, is how you know what kind of business insurance agent in Santa Ana you need to speak to about locking down coverage.

How to Tell a Home is a Good Buy

July 12, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Home is a Good BuyWhether you are buying to flip a home, or you want something that will appreciate in value so you can leave it to your kids, it’s a good idea to try and exercise some judgment for whether a house will be a good buy or not. While there is no substitute for an appraisal, these tips will help you make some fair assessments based on market conditions.

Amenities

What the home offers to you can help determine whether it is a good buy or not. Bathrooms are a great example. Full baths, that is bathrooms with a bathtub/shower combo, tend to add more value than a half or quarter bath. Extra bedrooms are nice, especially for people who frequently have guests come to stay. Those extra bedrooms can also serve as a home office.

Think Outside the House

Consider how you can utilize the space outside of your home. Adding a deck or patio to the rear of your house would be a good way to utilize that space, create a seating area and potentially add a barbecue for an outdoor kitchen. In the front yard, a small seating space that runs flush along the house can give you a porch you didn’t have before.

Kitchen Space

Kitchens with more space always tend to sell for more, but you can turn a long and skinny kitchen into what you need with proper cabinet space. If you are willing to compromise on some of these features, you can get the dream home you want with features that won’t run you broke.
