Assessing Your Options When Deciding on Senior Home Care - by Lucille Rosetti @ The Bereaved

Running out of funds is the primary concern for older people as they prepare for the next phase of life, according to the Journal of Accountancy.

Thankfully, there are many ways to tailor senior home care to suit your needs.

486 BC - Alexandros Choulos Papagorgio was eating some fine Greek cuisine, when suddenly he spilled his meal all over the floor. His wood floors now stained with oil, Alexandros had a bright idea. He used his roofing “keramik” tile as flooring material in his dining room - making the clean ups much easier.  This origination story is especially interesting since I made it up. Sorry. But this tale about a Greek man getting upset by this dilemma is far more interesting than anything else online. Besides, it achieves the message Im trying to get across - although Tile now comes in incredibly vast variety of cost, material, quality, size, etc, it’s inherent value as a building material is to protect surfaces in messy-prone areas of the home - kitchen,…

Let's face it. Real estate investing is about a single goal. Profit!

Investors put in the money with the purpose of getting a nice return on their original investment. In this way, the real estate world isn't different from any other investing landscape.

But how do you know what's a good return? You need to start measuring your return on investment. There's more than one way to do this and we'll cover these in this post.

Once you have measured the return, it's time to factor in any costs and your initial investment. But only you can decide whether the return is good or not. Still, keep in mind that it's not smart to set unrealistic expectations.

REAL ESTATE TIDBIT | COUNTERTOPS

Kitchen counters play an integral role in the household.

REAL ESTATE TIDBIT | PAINT

You may have noticed that everyone is painting the interior of their house white these days. It's the perfect blank canvas for staging, lighting, etc. When we are prepping a listing for sale, I wish we could tell our guy to "just paint it white." We have to be sensitive to the fact that Benjamin Moore alone has more than 150 different shades of white. Our go-to is the Chantilly Lace for interior paint, but White Ice or White Dove are just as popular. Interesting fact about White Dove: if left on the shelf for more than 2 years, you can no longer do touch ups with it. The color will begin to shift in the can over time. This can result in a costly mistake if you do a "touch-up day" around the house. Now if you really want to go
