Why Beach Real Estate Property Can Help De-Stress You From the Daily Grind

Let’s conduct an experiment here: do you have an alarm clock handy? If so, get it out. Plug it in. Next step: let’s hope this alarm clock has one of those features allowing you to loop all sorts of sounds while you sleep. You know what I’m talking about? I’m talking about the synthetic playback of all sorts of nature sounds —

  • Waterfalls
  • Raindrops
  • Wind
  • Crickets
That sort of thing. Go ahead and get this video started, by the way, while reading, and I can guarantee that this will be the best article you’ll ever read today.
I know, I know. You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this, especially when the title does say that this is something about the benefits of beach real estate property, so what am I getting at? Or am I just pulling your strings and leading you on some goose chase?

No Goose Chase Here: Just Beautiful Visuals and a Feast for the Ears

There’s just one more sound you would’ve heard on that video, which also could possibly be on your alarm clock. It’s a popular one. I am, of course, talking about the ever-familiar sound of the surf, perhaps some seagulls in the air, and the gentle crash of waves on the shore. It’s the beach.
Name one individual researching for zero-down homes, and automatically you’ll know that the term “beachfront property” perks people’s ears up real fast. It’s obvious.
The appeal of the getaway, the visuals, sights and lack of city sound make for a great meditative escape, relieving you of stress and recharging you for the next daily grind, whatever it may be.
Your instant benefit is that revitalization. You stay productive. You get the relaxation you need. Heck, some may even resort to their, well, resort every weekend to recharge for Monday and the rest of the workweek. In fact…that’s probably why they call it a “resort”!

Don’t Knock the Beach Real Estate Property

It just might be the best thing to ever happen to you, emotionally, spiritually, even practically from a profession standpoint. I’d go this far to say that you benefit the best as a writer, or an artist. Why?
Not only can you handle more of the ‘marketing’ and business aspect of your job during your regular days in the city, but you can do your work while on vacation. Every weekend. Or on any given week.
Bonus! Don’t cheat, though, and settle for the alarm clock. I’d suggest getting the beachfront property, going for the real thing. It’s always better. 

The Double-Edge Sword of Real Estate: Future Property Developments

Real estate’s like gambling when you think about it. You’re basically betting on a property hitting it big. You don’t know if it’s going to hit big. You have certain factors on your side, though: property values, assessments, location, trends, that sort of thing. But you can never be sure of what’s going to happen. Even if you’re just a potential home buyer looking for your zero-down home through H.O.P.E. to Own, you’re never sure if that home’s going to turn into a good investment on your end in the future just in case you plan on mortgage refinancing or moving out.

More so is the fact that you never know what’s going to happen to property developments around
your particular real estate in question! That’s what this is all about.

Future Property Developments: Will They Help You or Hurt You?

This takes some real estate research, far beyond what you’re accustomed to, just so you know. After all, if you invest or purchase a home in a development that may face vacancies or additional land developments, that may just have a tremendous effect on the future supply and home pricing around you.
Other such issues can include soon-to-be governmental prospects on developments for new schools, hospitals, changes in zoning and traffic for better flow or access to other amenities and that sort of thing. If changes are made around you — for better or worse, specifically for you — you could be looking at a good thing…. Or a bad thing.

It’s a Gamble. But What Do You Expect?

Shoot the tables and see what you come up with, I guess. You go in with great knowledge and technique, though, as a real estate investor. Whether it’s beachfront real estate or just a single-family home in a neighborhood — whatever the case, wherever the chips fall, if you have some idea of what’s going to happen in the future, you’ll have some idea of just what you might net in terms of ROI, or property value.
Lucky seven.

Why Being a Blog Writer Can Make You a Great Home Seller

This is great fear of many real estate agents — and brokers. The idea that you have to write. And not just poetry, or anything like that, or even a mega-novel! No. The idea of writing a blog is like slitting your throat. Do you have the time to do that as a home seller? No. You’re too busy marketing and showing homes. You do not have the time as a home seller to sit in your bed or chair, with your laptop, writing on your WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, or even Facebook about your experiences, or thoughts, especially regarding the real estate industry. Right?

I Need to Make This Clear: Get With the Program and Start Writing

Blogging is essential to real estate when you think about it. It’s all about networking. We’re already pretty keen on the idea of social media being a hit with the real estate market, so it makes sense to think that the bread and butter of the digital atmosphere that is blogging would lay that foundation and build your audience better than any open house.
Get. Your. WordPress. On. Start writing. Right now. It’ll only help your real estate business.

Think of It This Way, People: How Else Are Prospective Buyers Going to Learn About You?

When selling through social media, you have to realize that it’s not just the technology, or even the home itself, making the sale. You are as well. You’re the secret weapon. You’re the closer. You’re the one making sure the buyer follows through on the purchase. After all, you can catch the fish on the hook, but only you can reel it in.
So be prolific with your blogging. Through the content you build, you can syndicate it through Twitter, through Facebook, through LinkedIn — through the entire World Wide Web. And before you know it, you’re known not only in the industry, but with buyers in your area. Go hyperlocal. Get in depth. Stick to the news. Of course relate to your reader with your own thoughts about anything going on in your life, because that personalizes the marketing aspect to great effect. But the important thing is to just write. And write with your own personal voice.

You’ll Find That You’ll Nab Many Buyers That Way

That’s actually Sales 101 when you think about it: connecting to the customer in a personal way. There’s no better way to do that than blogging (or “blog writing”). And the real estate, you can bet your bread and butter on it, will benefit from it greatly.

How the Millage Rate Affects the GR Property Value

A little bit goes a long way: that’s what we want you to remember when considering something called the “millage rate.” What is the millage rate? Simply put, it’s a property tax rate defined by the tenths of a cent applied to assessed property value. Might not seem like much, but when you add it all together, that’s something every GR homeowner, home buyer, or home seller would very much like to know….

It Makes for a Drastic Change in the GR Property ValueGR property value scale

What’s going to happen to the GR property value starting this July is a slight dip in the property tax rate. Yes, it sounds like a good thing but not when you have a particular relationship going on with the millage (the actual tax rate per tenths of a cent) and the actual property value. And here’s the great thing about Grand Rapids these days: the GR property value all around is actually going up. Great for the market, but not so good for actual tax dollars even if the tax rate drops a bit.

This is what it’s going to look like very soon: we’re going to see a drop from 9.1518 mills to 9.1515 mills. That’s .0003 mills per $1K in property value. The reason why the millage is dropping (hence the property tax rate per homeowner will be dropping just a tad) is because the actual property value is going up. It’s all about balance.

This ensures the city’s subsidy to the convention and visitors bureau sits at a steady $50K. Look at it like a scale, for instance. Both sides need to be even. If overall GR property value starts to climb, Grand Rapids will ultimately have to see that the millage rate goes down.

And the Millage Rate Doesn’t Have to Go Down a Whole Lot!

That scale can crash and burn just from one ounce of an ounce of a feather landing on one side, so when you think about it, the real estate market is very much like a balance. Keep it steady, and everything’s good in the GR economy (which is impossible). One side starts to fluctuate, and you have to compensate (and it’ll certainly ruffle up the industry some, but that’s normal!).

Translating Taxable Value of a Grand Rapids, MI, Home

No, you don’t have to be a genius mathematician to figure this out (that’s what this website is for, actually). Truthfully, Grand Rapids, MI, property values isn’t that hard (but certainly plenty out there make it a lot more complex than it should be!). In regards to the latest news about property values for, for instance, your Grand Rapids, MI, home, you’d think that the lower millage rate we heard about would actually be maybe even a slight benefit to homeowners. But it’s not. Want to know why?

Taxable Value Does Change When It Comes to PropertyGrand Rapids, MI, home sunshine

Case in point: if property values remained the same year after year, lower millage rates would definitely see a decrease in city property taxes. For sure. About 1.4 cents, to be exact. But that’s not the case here in the everyday Grand Rapids, MI, home, for instance.

Property values change every year one way or another. This can take a lower millage rate and turn the taxable value into something completely different. As it stands right now, with this lower millage rate proposed for every Grand Rapids, MI, home, taxable value per home having seen an increase from $45,138 to $46,141 in this past year won’t really drop the property taxes at all.

It will, in fact, raise it just a bit for every single Grand Rapids, MI, home.

Think of It This Way: Property Values Go Up, Tax Rates Go Down, But Accumulate Much More

It’s basic math. But there’s a balance, and people have to be on top of the changes like psychics on a hotline. It’s about prediction. Weather patterns. Knowing when the storm’s about to hit. The real estate market with respect to property values is a tricky little industry, but if you know what’s going to happen, when it’s going to happen, and what will happen when it happens, we can safely say you’ll be prepared!

RTOR’s Latest Review: Rent-to-Own Consultants

Diamonds. We love them. Ladies love them. Rent-to-own consultants and gurus love them, too. They’re sparkly. They’re pricey. That’s part of the allure, though, of the diamond, whether it’s a round cut, princess or marquise. However, as fun and trendy as it is for a lovely lady to receive such a radiant treasure, one thing’s for sure — if you just don’t have the funds to buy, you’re out of luck. More importantly, if you don’t find the right jewel for the money, you’re up a creek.

Rent-to-Own Homes Are Just Like That: They’re Those Pricey Jewels We Want so rent-to-own consultants diamondBadly But Can’t Have

In the real estate market, we look for the best deals. These days, it seems, rent-to-own homes are among those best deals, but they’re often difficult to find, hard to negotiate over, and a challenge to traverse through the legal channels of making sure you’re in compliance with an industry already littered with pitfalls. This is why oftentimes real estate agents don’t care too much for the rent-to-own home, because such a contract only involves the landlord/homeowner and the tenant/home buyer. Nobody else. No lawyers (although they can be included, obviously for a hefty retaining fee), no agents, no nothing.

This Is Where Rent-to-Own Consultants Come In

Rent-to-Own Consultants has changed the real estate landscape to a certain degree: they’re the middle man. The advocate. The diamond cutter. With them, they can resolve any need for legal representation, gain access to any list of rent-to-own homes, and even offer affiliate services for anything like credit repair or identity theft protection. They are what they say they are: consultants. And their fee isn’t as pricey as any of those diamonds you’ll find at Jared.

Aside from this review from RTOR, you can even check out Nationwide Property Value’s take on them as well as Assisting Renters’ viewpoint and know the truth: the Rent-to-Own Consultants bring the goods as an affiliate of the BBB A-rated H.O.P.E. Program — in any shape, cut or shine you could ever want in a rent-to-own home.

Something We Don’t Discuss Often: Credit Repair

We definitely should, though. No doubt. Because when it comes to rent-to-own, credit repair’s essential, and it turns out that the BBB A-rated HOPE Program sees the writing on the wall — despite already doing well for customers in credit repair thanks to Lexington Law — and recently reported of their own review of yet another credit repair service out there recently launched.

The Name of the New Credit Repair Division Is INDEPENDENT CREDIT SOLUTIONS

And the department over there is now in full swing to start assisting customers nationwide as this press release credit repair swampstates. Sure, it’s all well and good, and we love a good credit score. Without a doubt, homeowners love those shining credit reports, too. But more importantly, the best part of Independent Credit Solutions is the fact that they’re focusing on the one element essential to the success of anyone prospecting for rent-to-own options. It’s all about credit repair.

You’ll need a 640 score, basically. No ifs, ands or buts. Anything lower, and you might be treading through mud during your trek across the swamp of the real estate market, and that’s no fun for those socks and boots you’re wearing. It’s a dangerous jungle out there; you’ll hear that from even your favorite rent-to-own consultant, but what can make it better for you is a pristine credit score brought about by one of the best credit repair service you could ever have recommended by the H.O.P.E. Program.

Take Advantage of It Right Now. Immediately. Your Credit Score Demands It.

We can’t legitimately review such a site as this, though, as this has literally nothing to do with rent-to-own. But what we can do is discuss it. Right here. Right now. Credit repair’s important. You can have all the services in the world, but if you don’t take that first step and follow through with repairing your credit right now by enrolling here, you might be up a creek and lost in the wilderness.

And that’s no place to be right now in today’s real estate industry.

Divorced Couples Living Together: It Does Happen! (For Tax Reasons)

Think about the future here. Let go of the animosity (especially if you have kids!), because sometimes while the pain and tumult of divorce can be overwhelming, sometimes the money issues, especially with the house, can hurt even more! Something you honestly don’t want….

You Might Be Divorcing Your Spouse, But Try Not to Divorce Your Entire Life

Might be asking much, but when it comes to your taxes, you have an option here (as crazy as it may be). You can live in the home together. Promote stability. Be civil. Care. This also keeps all tax obligations amicable and mutual, neither side benefiting or hurting more than it should.
And here’s the bonus: you get more bonus tax advantages when you do eventually sell the home!
Also do keep in mind that just because you also own the home, doesn’t mean you always have to technically live there either. However, your mail will continue to arrive at that house. So make sure the ex-spouse realizes that and doesn’t shred the material every time he/she sees your name.

It’s the Simplest Way to Get Taxes Figured Out About the House

But it’s not for the faint of heart. Talk to a consultant with the Income Tax Planning Network about it some more and see if this may be an option for you. Check out this guide on taxes during a divorce as well for more possibilities. Because, remember: it’s just a house.
