People often think that renting out your own property is very simple and doesn’t come with many problems. That’s not always true. Property owners often can’t handle all of the different things that need to be done to maintain a property alone, so it’s very common to get help. This past week, I hired some people to do a one time cleaning service for Singapore property owners at one of my places. I had to kick two people out of two different townhomes that I own, and they left a mess behind when they left. There are many things that go on like this on a continuous basis.
I got into purchasing properties because of the financial value each property brings to my life. Continue reading Being a Landlord is Easier when You Have Assistance
I knew that I was going to need some help with my spring cleaning in Singapore this year. I usually have plenty of time as well as energy to do it on my own, but I was severely lacking in both this year. I was working a lot of overtime because we had three people out. One was out for medical purposes, and two were out on pregnancy leave. Rather than hire someone else, all of us pitched in to cover for them until they were back. That meant that I was running myself ragged, and I just needed some help.
I knew that I could put my spring cleaning off for a little bit of time until life slowed down again. Continue reading A Cleaning Gift for Myself
When I injured my back a couple of months ago, I was in pain, but I thought it would just heal on its own, so I just took some aspirin and went on about my day. As time passed, the pain started to get worse. Someone suggested that I go to a chiropractor to have it looked it, but I told them, that I would be just fine. Passing up on the chance to go to the Concord chiropractor was a big mistake. Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning and my wife had to help me.
Fed up with my stubbornness, my wife made an appointment with the chiropractor that morning and didn’t want to hear any objections from me. Continue reading Things Don’t Always Heal on Their Own
I knew that I wanted a two bedroom apartment around Manassas Virginia. Other than that, I really did not know what kind of apartment I wanted. I had never lived in one before, but my job was too unstable to consider anything other than an apartment for the time being. I knew I would be in the area for at least two years, so I just started looking at decent apartments for Manassas VA area. I came across some that I knew I would never step foot in even for a tour, and I came across others that I knew I could not possibly afford because they are just that nice.
However, there were still quite a few in my price range, and they were really nice ones at that. Continue reading I Am Enjoying Life at Palisades
Finding a florist in Fitzroy who would keep up with our business proved a challenge after our long time florist decided to retire. I own a funeral home and of course that means we’re always dealing with flowers. We have about four or five funerals each and every day and we need a florist who can keep up with that demand. Our old florist understood our business and our needs and was always there for us come rain or shine. We never had a problem, even when something popped up at the last minute. He was always there for us.
When he decided to quit the business, we got really worried. You simply can’t have something go wrong with a funeral service. Continue reading Best Flower Shop We Have Used
Working out of an old building can mean a lot of problems. I own a barber shop on the bottom floor, and I am also the owner of the entire building, too. Between the two things, I am on my toes all the time. I found myself with a pretty busy schedule this week for haircuts and shaves, and wouldn’t you know that this was the same week that the AC went out, too. I really needed air conditioning repair in NYC very quickly so that I would not have a lot of angry tenants to deal with or problems with my own customers.
I made some calls, and because it had been such a hot week, the AC people told me that it would be a few hours before they could get to my location. I didn’t mind because I know that when there’s a heat wave, these places probably have a lot of grumpy customers who take it out on the employees, even though it’s not their fault at all. Continue reading Everyone Needs to Keep Working when Something Goes Wrong
I was really sick and tired of the apartment that I had been living in for nearly a year. It sounded and looked good before moving in, but that taught me that I need to do a lot more research other than just looking at a complex’s website if I want to know the real details of a place. I was under a lease for 12 months, which meant that i started looking for a new place to live as soon as I had just a month left. I looked at the Regency at Lookout Canyon first because it looked like a really nice place the few times I had passed it.
I knew that I was going to have to go online and find out more, so I looked at their website as well as a local review website. Continue reading I Could Not Wait to Move to Regency
I do not know what the problem is, but I have a husband who does not remember things very easily. He leaves a lot of things out where they should not be in the house. It is something that I have never been able to change when it comes to him. Sometimes he remembers, but most of the time he does not. He definitely did not remember to pick our weight scale up off the bathroom floor. I tripped over it and had to go to a chiropractor in sacramento after I began experiencing extreme pain from the fall.
Oh, you can imagine my anger after I fell and realized what caused it. We have a small bathroom, so I normally make sure that the scale is placed in an out of the way area so that no one will trip on it. But my husband pulls it out to use it and forgets to put it back. It is made of very thick glass, so it is to miss when it is placed on our white floor. Continue reading My Husband’s Forgetfulness Caused Me a Lot of Pain
After my husband and I were married twenty years ago, we set up an irrevocable trust with all the property that we both own. In our minds, we figured we would be with one another into our senior years and up until the day we both passed away. But that didn’t happen. We ended up getting a divorce. But we needed to find a trust attorney in Los Angeles who could make changes to our trust. This can be done with the type that we have if both parties agree to the change.
It took us awhile to work out the terms of our divorce, At first, my ex-husband tried to fight me every step of the way. Continue reading It Was Necessary to Find Legal Help That I Could Trust
I was interested in learning about different rate plans for some energy providers here in Texas, but I was not sure how to go about it. I did not fancy calling each one to get information, and I knew that it would also take a long time to go to each website and get the info that I wanted. I found just what I needed though when I came across an advertisement that said to click here to compare energy plans. I had found that when I was doing a search to see if I could find an easier way to compare the plans, which is just what that site does.
I already had service with one provider, but I was looking to be more green. Continue reading Being Friendlier to the Earth
Choosing an Internet service that is right for you is easier than you might think. I always recommend to people that are searching for a new service to take a close look at their Internet usage, what they want to use the Internet for and what their price range might be. This will help them narrow down the type of service. For those who are looking to avoid dealing with the cable companies one of the best is DirecTV Internet. Satellite has come a long way since the days it was originally rolled out and consumers can expect to find quality comparable to broadband.
I’ve been using satellite Internet for the past 6 months. I had approached it with some trepidation as I was suspecting to find a service that would be reminiscent of the days of dial-up. Thankfully it turned out to be far more reliable and I’ve been able to utilize it for everything that I use my Internet connection for. Continue reading Tailoring an Internet Connection to Your Needs
I bought a nice piece of land a couple of years ago. It was a good deal and the location was something that I was able to live with. It is not really that close to my job, but it was really inexpensive and I could deal with the commute. Of course I have a small motorcycle that I use to go back and forth to work much of the year. Right now I have been checking out the offerings from ADT Security and some of their competitors. What I am looking to do is to get the best smart home system that I can afford. Like most people I am on a budget and the purpose of the smart home features is to save me money. So I have to figure out what the total cost of it is going to be. How much is going to cost you up front and then what is going to be the cost to have it on a monthly basis. Continue reading Checking out Some Smart Home Systems
Much like anything else in modern society, luxury cars provide a means to show off or make an investment. The world offers plenty of luxurious car brands, but some are more popular than others. This article will discuss the world’s most luxurious car brands.
The Rolls-Ryoce received top pick in a recent Beijing study. The original Rolls-Royce first made its appearance in 1906. As the years progressed, this luxury brand has changed ownership twice and still provides some of the most popular cars modern day.
Bentley is another popular choice. This brand actually manufactures Rolls-Royce cars as a subsidiary since 2003. This brand name was developed in 1919 by W.O. Bentley. It was renowned for its rotary aero-engines during the first World War. After WWI, Bentley went on to manufacture luxury cars that we still see today.
Ferraris are often seen in fancy and upscale neighborhoods in Miami or Manhattan. This brand came to existence in 1929 by Enzo Ferrari. Continue reading The World’s Most Luxurious Car Brands
There is luxury in a Range Rover that cannot be had in a Jeep Grand Cherokee even though both are decent commercial off-road performers. The Range Rovers and Land Rovers had a reputation of needing extra repairs, and expensive repairs they were. However, those days may be behind them. The high end luxury SUV market has the Range Rover at the top of the heap for comfort and cool things that buyers of these vehicles expect.
I find it strange that the utilitarian use of off-road capability has so much of a concentration on comfort with both of the vehicles. Even the Jeep has leather seats and fancy things available. Personally I would really like to see a really tough SUV that has a durable interior and exterior along with components that are truly off-road capable. Sure, we can custom build these things, but I think that there would be a market for this type of vehicle if a good one was introduced.
The Honda Element has a polymer floor available and water resistant seats, if I remember correctly. This is a great vehicle to take the kids and Rover to the beach in. It is great to go a little off-road and down to that fishing pond too. Continue reading I Would Like to See a High End SUV Made for Real World Use
