Health Benefits of Living by the Beach

I recently came across the article Neuroscientists Strongly Recommend That You Visit The Beach Regularly, which greatly intrigued me.  I can’t begin to say how amazing it is to live by the beach. No matter how stressful the day, it only takes a few minutes to melt the stress away.

Last night my wife went out to dinner with the girls and I was left to fend for for myself and our two daughters. Out of initial laziness, I decided it best to order Victoria’s Subs. Driving by Straits Pond and realizing how perfect of a night it was, I quickly made the decision to head down to Sandy Beach (Insert Link Here to Beach blog post done prior). A simple dinner turned into a night I don’t think I will ever forget. Reagan running after the Seagulls wearing her purple tutu while Madison enjoyed nature’s sound machine, asleep in her carseat.

Boston Rentals Show Promising Investment Opportunities

Boston homes are not staying on the market long. No matter what neighborhood you look in, there are few open houses or for sale signs to discover. When you do come across a house for sale in Quincy, Waltham, Medford, or Newton, then you will want to contact the agent immediately because some homes are spending only a day or two on the market. Can you imagine how fast a cute home with stylish upgrades and modern appliances will go with these turnover rates? Striking while the iron is hot could net you big returns if you choose the right property. Signs are pointing to turning homes into multi-unit rentals to get the most income. Switching over design ideas and making functional changes do not have to be intense and budget breaking. By adding a rooftop bar, a backyard barbecue, or a fabulous appliance package in the kitchen, you can draw in rental applicants fast.

1. Make repairs

You may have lived all along with stained ceilings, broken windows, missing tile, a heavily-scratched floor, or some other dents and issues. It’s fine though, after all, you’re the landlord of your house. But that is about that. Since you’ll be putting your home on the market soon, you won’t like anything to get in your way of making a great sale. If there is one thing that will greatly affect the way prospective buyers value your home, leaving these issues that need repairs unattended to is one thing that will devalue and de-market your property to a large extent. If you’re hoping to get maximum value before placing your home for sale in or near Boston, consider fixing any problem you can.
