Real Estate Marketing Tips

The real estate sector is a tough market to be in. But it also provides for a more than decent living. In order to be successful in this profession, a real estate agent needs to have a vast network of people that can market and refer potential clients. A study found that 75 percent of a real estate agent’s business comes from referrals and word of mouth. With that in mind, here are some of the basic real estate marketing tips to get ahead of the game.

1. Be responsive

If you want to increase the reach of your network, you have to be responsive and mobile. And by mobile, I mean being able to communicate and post to your social networks on the go. Availability should be one of your strongest points. Making yourself easy to contact helps clients hire you easier.

Add social sharing to property pages

Homebuyers today are eager to share their top housing options to family and friends. Make it easy for buyers to share your photos to emails and social media sites by adding share buttons.

Create an irresistible content offer

Regularly put out content that will capture leads. Potential homebuyers, especially first timers, won’t just go ahead and purchase a house. Many of them will hit Google with queries like “What to look for when buying a new house” or “Most valuable features of a new home.” Make sure to write content that answer these questions. There’s a big chance they will land on your page.

Three Mistakes Every Real Estate Investor Should Avoid

A lot of people invest in real estate, but not everyone knows exactly how to make the most out of their investment especially in a slow property market. Below are three common mistakes you should avoid if you want to win the uphill battle of being a real estate investor.

Not claiming all the legitimate items you can

You can get a lot from valuable tax savings by claiming items such as smoke alarms, security systems, swimming pools, and even garbage bins. Light fixtures and fittings with a depreciable value below $300 can be claimed during the first financial year.

Rushing the deal

One of the biggest mistakes an investor can make is to jump the gun and sign the deal. A lot of times, investors just want to get the deal over with. However, staying calm and patient while executing a deal is of utmost importance. Do not ignore the paperwork.

Not getting professional help

Some investors think that they can do it on their own. You will actually save more in the long run by employing the help of a professional realtor because they know this backward. And a lot of investors don’t realize that hiring a professional agent is completely tax deductible.

Live-Action “Mulan” Might Have Music After All

The entertainment world was turned upside down when news outlets released statements saying the live-action Mulan might not feature its original movie soundtrack. Mulan without music? Really? How could that be possible?

Image source:
The “news” got a lot of Mulan fans pissed. With the recent success of the live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast,” many Disney fans thought Mulan without the music would be a sure failure. Known for hit songs “Reflection,” “Make a Man Out of You,” and “Honor To Us All,” Mulan surely stirred the hearts of many children and children-at-heart.

Fans stated horror when Niki Caro, the director of the live-action version of the 1998 hit, stated that the film would not have any songs as of her latest conversation with Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture. She even said the film would be a martial arts epic paired with thrilling and entertaining scenes. The film is set to be released worldwide in 2 November 2018.

Image source:
But Caro, however, clarified that her earlier statements were taken the wrong way. She said that the parties just never talked about songs yet, and that nothing is final as of the moment. Well, I’m just glad they’re not entirely x-ing out the possibility of a music-filled, live-action Mulan. But I’d still be watching it with or without the music for the theatrical experience.

Ginger is more than a spice that will add zest to a meal. It is also a known home remedy that is commonly used for fighting colds and sore throat. You may have already tried ginger tea to get rid of the sniffles but did you know that consuming ginger could do so much more? Here is a list of how you can use ginger to cure common ailments:

  1. Boiled ginger mixed with lemon juice and warm water is the perfect remedy for stomachache.
  2. Ginger-lemon combo can also boost a person’s metabolism and maintain weight loss.
  3. Feeling bloated and nauseous? A cup of ginger tea can prevent inflammation and can help pregnant women who are experiencing morning sickness.
  4. Those who are going through PMS can skip the ibuprofen and mefenamic acid and go for a cup of hot ginger tea.
  5. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, weightlifters and bodybuilders can consume ginger to prevent muscle soreness. Though the effects can’t be seen immediately, continued consumption will help in the long run.
  6. Taking ginger extract can also help lessen the pain experienced by those who are suffering from osteoarthritis. Those who take ginger extract daily have less pain medications.

There are different ways to enjoy ginger. You can take it dried, fresh, powdered, juiced, or made as oil. If you’re not into the taste of ginger, for a start you can use it in small doses to spice up dishes. However, if you’re looking into the habit of drinking ginger as a tea, you can use honey instead of sugar for an energizing effect. With magnesium, zinc, and vitamin C, this natural multivitamin will surely do wonders for your body.

Career choices for the certified fitness trainer

Want to explore the broad world of health and fitness? If you’re like me, working on a fitness training certification, or if you’re interested in entering the industry, here are career choices that will fuel your passion.  

Personal Trainer 

Being a personal trainer is a rewarding experience. It allows an individual to be involved in someone’s goals and dreams. As a personal trainer, it is your duty to guide your clients in sticking to a fitness plan based on their current physical state and goals. Aside from doing one-to-one consulting sessions, personal trainers can also do virtual training or group exercise sessions.

Gym Assistant 

For those who are still working on their certification, becoming a gym assistant is a good start. It is a customer service position, but you’ll get great on-the-job experience before you go a notch higher as a personal trainer or as a fitness consultant. Doing this job will definitely benefit your journey to becoming a fitness professional.  

Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant 

This appealing job is ideal for individuals who want to be set apart from other personal trainers. Lifestyle and weight management consultants are with their clients in every step of their journey, and not just inside the gym. Unlike personal trainers who are limited within the four walls of the gym, lifestyle and weight management consultants help clients change their eating and other lifestyle habits to aid long-term improvement. This job is a good way to level up one’s personal training career.

Fun workouts to try in 2017

It looks like 2017 is going to be an exciting year for fitness aficionados. With the release of wearable tech and fun workouts making their way into the mainstream, there are a lot of new things to try when it comes to keeping our bodies in tip-top shape. From what I’ve been hearing, here are some of the workouts that will be popular this year:

1. Body weight training

If you want to quit using classic weights even for a short time, body weight training is the way to go. No-weight workouts are a great way to kick-start an exercise routine especially for those who prefer to get fit from the comfort of their own home. Aside from the traditional push-up and pull-ups, there are other body weight exercises that will surely target all the muscle areas.

2. Specialized sports training

Those who want to train like their favorite MMA fighter or football player can do so with the help of a specialized sports training studio. These studios can also help those who are planning on joining a marathon or a triathlon. It seems that in 2017, more people will get into pro-athlete programs.

3. Boxing

Boxing has always been an option for a total body workout. However, in 2017, it will become more popular especially among women. With the opening of boxing studios and their affordable rates, more people will get their gloves on and aspire to have moves like Ali.

Image source:

These workout trends look fun. As I’m already into boxing, I’m looking forward to trying out specialized sports training. I’m sure that there will be more workout trends throughout 2017 worth trying out. Who’s up for a fitness challenge?

Just Married: A Newlyweds Guide To Buying Their First Home

The honeymoon bliss is still in the air – but newlyweds are beginning to feel reality closing in. After the fantastic and fairytale wedding, it is now on to more practical considerations. One of the first things newlyweds think of is buying a home. Before making that decision, many real estate experts recommend sitting down and considering these few things:

Both of your credit scores: Ideally, a couple’s credit score should match. This makes applying for a loan easier and eliminates any stress or hassle usually involved with financial institutions. It is unfortunate but if one person’s credit score is significantly lower than the others, it could affect any loan applications.

Image Source:

Think of the future: A good question to ask is: Where would we like to live in five years? Remember that most newlyweds’ first homes end up being their family home. Take a look at the neighborhood and imagine raising kids there. Even for couples that do not want children, it is still important to assess whether the area is somewhere they’d want to live in for at least five more years.

The question of "if": Perhaps this is not the most romantic conversation, but couples should ask themselves who would get the home if ever they separate. This helps determine insurance policies and who is legally responsible for the house.

Newlyweds are suggested to visit their local realtor for more advice. These professionals are able to give suggestions based on the couple’s specific needs and situations.
