Investing in Commercial Real Estate

When most people think of real estate investment, they think of rental homes and apartments. However, current economic conditions make rental real estate riskier than ever. Even good honest tenants are subject to losing their jobs and being unable to pay rent. Furthermore, declining property values and rising taxes and insurance negatively impact profit potential.


Commercial real estate investment offers an attractive alternative to residential real estate. Leases are long-term and the checks are less likely to bounce. There are two basic types of commercial real estate investments: direct and indirect.


In direct commercial real estate investment, you purchase one or more business buildings. This option requires a large amount of capital and offers little liquidity. As the owner, you will be responsible for management and maintenance issues.

Office buildings and manufacturing facilities usually provide long-term tenants and greater stability than retail establishments. But if you need your money, you have to find a buyer for the building. And again, you will have tax and insurance issues.

Novice investors have been burned by hidden environmental problems or zoning issues, so make sure to seek the advice of an attorney knowledgeable in commercial real estate issues.


Indirect real estate investments allow the smaller investor to enjoy the benefits of commercial real estate with fewer disadvantages. Funds from many investors are pooled and used for commercial investments. The fund's directors hire managers and address maintenance issues. Furthermore, shares in the fund can be sold at will, improving investors' liquidity.


There are many options in indirect real estate investments.

You can consider the pros and cons of various investment types. For example, you may decide that America's aging population makes medical building investments a "sure thing". On the other hand, concerns about national health insurance issues leading to restrictive regulations in the medical industry may lead you to look elsewhere for investment opportunities.

The global marketplace makes it possible to invest in real estate anywhere in the world. However, differing regulations and politics may increase risk. On the other hand, rapid growth and profit potential may make the risks worth taking.


Like most investments, the costs of real estate investment shares have dropped considerably. However, the returns are still excellent compared to other investments. 
And the real estate investors' mantra "They're not making any more land" is as true as ever.


You can go online to research major real estate investment funds. Maybe you can find the perfect commercial real estate investment to meet your financial goals.


It does not matter how many commercial real estate deals an investor goes through, they always have an established process that they utilize every single time to assure they cover all their bases and increase the likelihood of a great investment. Synergy has a lot of meaning in the commercial real estate market. By utilizing synergy of process and assets one can realize huge results and profits by making minor adjustments to strategy. Those minor adjustments can often mean the difference between success and failure.

Real Estate Commercial Property

The buyer's market in real estate these days has created all types of real estate available for investors. One of these markets that are considered cheap and more affordable is the commercial real estate market. This can be one of the most profitable markets for investors, but many investors do not put much effort in purchasing commercial properties, because they do not understand the benefits. By comparing costs with benefits, you will soon come to know that commercial real estate is the actual way to go. You should consider the use of property that you are selecting. If it is a commercial property then it is only good for business world, you will find it difficult to sell out property in the future. By choosing a property that is flexible and supple in its usage, you will raise the chance of success with your investment.


You should also consider the location of property.

Is it located on main road? Is it behind other buildings? By checking all these facts, you will be able to get the property that is right for your needs. Try to find the profit margin of the property. By considering the profit margin of the property, you will be able to decide if it is good for you or not. This is an important decision for you to make, so run those numbers and try to find if this property best suits your financial condition. Commercial investment is said to be a great choice over residential investment, simply because it doesn't look to fluctuate so much. By choosing the right property with right place, considering the profit margin, you will be able to invest successfully in commercial real estate and make most of your profit.

Real Leadership

If you were to ask the average man or woman in the street what makes a good leader, the majority, I think, would put forward qualities such as strength, determination, courage and, for many, ruthlessness. If you were to ask how many people demonstrate such qualities, our fictitious survey group might cite Napoleon, Wellington, Margaret Thatcher and some leaders of industry such as Richard Branson. Leadership is perceived as being


in short supply. We are, so many believe, crying out for leadership. (One of the arguments put forward for grammar schools has been that they would produce the next generation of military and industrial leaders). 


But while the word 'leader' usually conjures up the picture of someone like JFK, we are all leaders at certain times - and not just in special circumstances. A parent needs to lead his or her children.

A partner within a relationship will, if the relationship is to be balanced and work, have times of being the leader and other times of being led. Even though leadership may not be a full time occupation, we will all have moments when others look to us for direction, guidance and support.

My experience as a trainer and a consultant has made me very aware that every trainer and every consultant is a leader, and that they have different ways of leading. Becoming clear about my own style of leadership has been very important for me both personally and professionally. It has involved me making explicit some of the assumptions and beliefs that govern my behaviour and has enabled me to recognise how these fundamentally affect the messages I send, and the way of working that fits for me.


Leadership, I have found, is like charity - it begins at home.

To be a good leader of others you first need to know how to lead yourself - and when you can lead yourself you can lead others. I think you need to be clear about the journey you wish to make, the speed at which you wish to travel and the beliefs and values that will guide your path. In the training courses that I run, we call this process pacing yourself (In other words, being true to yourself and not trying to force yourself to be anything that deep down you know you cannot be). It is about becoming the leader that is already within you.

So often when I'm coaching executives my function is to draw out what they have not recognised that they have within themselves. In the context of training, this means allowing the leader to come out as opposed to teaching slick tricks or having to stick 'leadership' on from the outside much as you might stick wall cladding on a house to


cover up cracks. Leadership, when you are true to yourself, flows like a river and is without effort. It emanates and radiates. It is not something that is forced out with determination, or that creates high blood pressure and sleepless nights.


Put another way, leadership is about personal congruence. And the key to personal congruence is being able to pace yourself. To pace yourself you need to be able to honour and acknowledge the different aspects of yourself whether your conscious mind likes them or not. You will also need to address your own particular habitual patterns and experiences. If this sounds like a tall order, the good news is that the ways to achieve this can all be taught.


In addressing these areas I have found myself personally changing and becoming more completely aligned, a process which can be unending for anyone who seeks to realise more of themselves than they have currently achieved. It is like becoming a charioteer with all your horses running in the same direction, at the same speed and with the same intentions. The pay-off is enormous as you are truly able to walk your talk, to practice what you preach or to do what you say. It produces a particular kind of leadership style which is sometimes called 'leading by example'. This is about leading by being: being one whose behaviour is naturally aligned with who you are and what matters to you. My experience is that once people know they can have this, they want it very badly because it is profoundly healing and very empowering.


Leading in this way whether at work or in your personal life means acting with personal purpose stemming from a centred sense of self. It is centred because it steers a safe course between grandiose self-promotion and unitive self-criticism, rather than oscillating violently between the two. To use a much abused word, this really is


empowering. The fruits of such self-empowerment are readily apparent.


Leaders who are empowered have as a high priority the empowerment of those they lead. Expect such people to be: (i) clearer about what matters to them and more able to be themselves; (ii) not just confident but truly competent; (iii) creative because they are able to adapt what they have learnt to their own circumstances; (iv) not just knowing about a subject, but really able to do it and even to live it. 


Once you can pace yourself you are ready to lead yourself and others. The more I have been able to lead in this way, the less I have needed to try to dominate others personally or professionally. The more competent the person becomes, the less they need to dominate, whether as a trainer, a parent, a consultant, a manager, or whatever.


My research suggests that the most effective leaders are motivated by a vision that is allied to their mission. Their mission is an expression of who they are and as a result it is not just a bunch of words, it manifests from within and is an expression of that individual's identity.


Unfortunately, many find themselves in businesses and organisations, in positions where they are expected to demonstrate a leadership style which is not really them, a cultural 'norm' that just doesn't fit. If the culture is made up of bullies bearing threats to create an atmosphere of 'have to' as opposed to one of 'want to', and your nature and belief systems are thrown into conflict when trying to copy such behaviours, leadership will become a heavy burden. Each day will be an exercise in girding loins and repeating in your head 'it's either them or me'. If you are then judged by your ability to mimic external behaviours that violate the inner values that you hold, the way you come across will be seen as confused, indecisive and not 'the stuff we're looking for'. On the other hand, if


you succeed in this deception you may feel split and unable to be yourself. And over time this can eat away inside you, and at your success, like a corrosive acid. As one executive I was coaching said, " On the outside I've got it all but inside I just feel like a hollow tube."


To enhance someone's ability to be a leader in their life, one must first enhance the individual who will be that leader. There is no better way to do this than to create structures which draw out of an individual his or her own unique vision and mission. Why? Because these are born of that person's identity.


I have found that to identify one's mission in life is a very profound experience for the individual. It matters a lot to people and stays with them afterwards. This is because they have achieved a high degree of integration and have a felt experience of what their life purpose is.


It also has two remarkable and often unexpected side effects. People begin to become more successful. They also become more creative. 


Once your sense of self and your mission are aligned with what you do, you become unstoppable. How could you not do your mission if your mission is a natural expression of who you are? As one course participant said to me, 'Now I can enjoy doing me'. From my own experience in aligning my behaviour with my mission I can vouch for the truth in this.


As a result you also feel freed up. Free to do what will support your mission and free to dream up new ways of realising it.


So being a leader is not about commanding vast armies of people, nor is it about having power over others. People who seek power over others are usually chronically disempowered individuals themselves. Nor is leadership about control: the better you are as a leader the better you are able to influence. The more influential you are, the less you need to try to control.


That's why for me the purpose of good leadership training is to uncover the natural leader in each of us. To help each of us manifest our purpose and live it more fully and more successfully.

Real Estate

The house is one of the most real is that nobody will ever have. No matter what your home is large or small, will be very valuable. As a homeowner, selling your home can not be a very welcome development, and so, if you can not find the idea very attractive, you look out for a good Realtor that can sell your house quickly. If you're thinking about getting into contact with any real estate agent and selling your property, you should avoid walking in a representation directly, because letting a total stranger to sell your house is not a good idea. Idea is not very safe to give your property the first meeting of everyone.



main idea is to find an agent who has some experience with the type of property you have. Take the time to research facilities well before deciding on a Realtor, because you should get the value of your home is worth. So keep all these factors into consideration when looking for a good realtor that can sell your house quickly and at a good price.



When you are a real estate agent, you and your agent must develop a strategy. You must decide the price and how long you leave the market before you think of the reduction. You also need to discuss his committee also will avoid misunderstandings in the future. If we talk about these different things when they first start to sell your home, you can find the whole process go much smoother.



The sale of your home itself is not so expensive. You do not have to worry about taxes or dealing with a number of people who have a house sold. However, there is a lot of work, fewer resources at hand, in some cases, and more problems if you decide to sell the house yourself. That decision can only do so highly regarded by both sides. Of course, if you're not in a hurry, you can add the same house before. Then, if you do not sell, you get an agent to help you.



Selling a home is never an easy task. For an owner, it is difficult to dispose of his home and a buyer is difficult to spend hard earned money. Large luxury estate homes are more difficult to sell due to their high cost. In the current economic crisis, nobody can afford to buy goods and certainly not large, extravagant houses. People prefer to buy homes that are functional, rather than the fairy tale. You may have trouble constantly trying to find a suitable place for negotiations, which will satisfy both parties. But do not get through everything that argument. There are some tips to help you sell the house, with only one third of the effort that you would have to invest otherwise.



The price is very important. First, we must examine the market trends to get the right idea of what price range as a residential area at the time. Understand that the house price is not right what you want or what they would have received if he had sold the house six months back. The right price is what the buyer is willing to pay today. Your Real Estate prices is the best bet, because most people can not afford the real estate and homes do not want to spend more than already expensive price range.



Most of the time, there are no costs that you pay out of pocket!My team negotiates aggressively with the banks to ensure you owe nothing. Occasionally, some banks will require homeowners that are completing Short Sales to take small unsecured loans (typically around ,000) that the homeowner must pay off over 5-10 years. These loans are typically at zero percent interest. The banks do this as a good faith gesture on the part of the homeowner. While my team does its best to ensure you walk away owing nothing, we cant promise that because the banks are in control. Even if you end up owing a small amount, it is MUCH better than going through foreclosure or bankruptcy where you could still owe hundreds of thousands of dollars even after they take the house.

Real Possibilities With Real Estate Software

Given the recent plummet in commercial real estate values, now is the time that a sophisticated investor should start focusing on making real estate acquisitions. Dont be fooled by people touting no money down programs. In commercial real estate, there is almost always a requirement to have at least 20% down. However, a real investor with no money can still put together commercial real estate deals by pooling money from other investors and getting a cut of the profits as a reward for organizing the deal. This is known as syndication. Typically, investors choose real estate for several reasons: cash flow, depreciation, tax benefits and influence.


In putting together a real estate deal whether it is for ones own account or for syndication, it is absolutely crucial to perform a thorough analysis. GoodReal Estate Software is vital for this purpose. There is too much money at stake in commercial real estate to buy property based on an expectation that the price will just magically increase. Real estate investor software allows the investor to gather the needed data and put it into a consistent and logical framework where it can be compared with other projects .


Real estate investment software can be used to determine whether a project is worth doing. For example, an investor may have a threshold internal rate of return of 20% and the software will weed out a project that doesnt meet this criteria. The software can also be used to rank projects and determine which is the one most profitable. In any event, commercial real estate has far too many variable and complexities for an investor to just wing it based on feel. Quality commercial real estate software is essential.

Real Real Estate Mortgage Opportunities!

Finding a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity can seem like an impossible task with so many disreputable ventures available.  Sometimes it can be difficult to tell the difference between a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity and a get rich scheme that is simply designed to take your money.  When you're looking for a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity, ask yourself the following questions to help determine if it is in fact a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity.  Does this opportunity give me the information I need about how to close my loans?  Does this real estate mortgage opportunity offer leading edge mortgage technology?  Does this real estate mortgage opportunity offer me the ability of partnering with people, not creating my own competitors?  What kind of experience, training, clients, and success rates does this legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity come with?  What kind of helps and educational guides does this real estate mortgage come equipped with to help you understand the ins and outs of the legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity?  Does the real estate mortgage opportunity offer the ability to work through a virtual office, or is the opportunity localized to a specific office, branch, city, or region?  



Major factors that differentiate between a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity and a swindle can seem inconsequential or can even go unnoticed.  A key difference between a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity and a fraud is communication.  Legitimate real estate mortgage opportunities will offer easy and reliable methods of communication between the clients who patron that company and the individuals who manage the finances of each client.  Any type of financial opportunity that doesn't encourage open and easy communication between company and client, no matter how much of a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity it may seem to be, is more than likely not.  Keep an eye out for get rich quick schemes that may turn up from time to time.  Any company that promises instant unbelievable results or overnight success stories that seem too good to be true with the use of their services is probably not offering a legitimate real estate mortgage opportunity.

Understanding Commercial Real Estate Leases

One of the most important aspects of managing commercial real estate includes understanding leases. There are a variety of leases employed by landlords to manage their tenants, and it is necessary whether you are leasing or renting a commercial space that you completely understand the agreement (lease) that you are signing.

A lease is like a partnership. It outlines how the business relationship between the lessor and the leasee will proceed. Following are some types of commercial leases that you, as an investor, may encounter.

The Triple Net Lease (which is abbreviated as “NNN” in advertising) is used extensively in commercial real estate. It is popular for multi-tenant and single-tenant industrial and retail properties.

The three elements—the “triple”—are Taxes, Insurance, and Operating Expenses. In a true NNN lease (and many so-called NNN leases are not “true” NNN), the tenant pays a basic rent to the landlord, and in addition pays ALL the operating costs of the property: the real estate taxes, all the insurance premiums, and all the operating expenses—from utilities to maintenance contracts, pest control to security. The tenant is responsible for everything under this form of commercial real estate lease.

In a single-tenant building, many if not all of these costs will be directly paid by the tenant. Even the tax bill will be invoiced to the tenant. In a multi-tenant building, it is more common for the landlord to be invoiced for at least some of the operating expenses (taxes and insurance at least) that will be collected, often monthly, from each tenant according to their pro-rated share. This separate collection is often called “CAM,” for Common Area Maintenance (although it may include non-maintenance items such as insurance and real estate taxes).

A Gross lease, sometimes identified as a Full Service Lease, in its pure form has the tenant paying a single flat sum each period to the landlord as the total rent, with the landlord responsible for all costs of operation of the property. A one-night stay at a hotel is such a lease, as are some short apartment leases.

More often, Gross leases should be called Modified Gross, because under their terms a tenant will be required to pay some of the operating costs (electricity, water, cleaning, for example), and/or the rent each year may increase by the amount that the operating costs—or the tenant's share of them—have increased in the previous year.

Like anything else in real estate, it is important that you understand the agreements and the terms before entering into a deal. Understanding commercial leases isn’t as difficult as performing brain surgery, but you need to do a little homework all the same.

Getting Real About Real Estate

Is it time to buy? Phoenix Arizona real estate has seen it's fair share of the good, the bad and the ugly. From the effects of the "Keating Five" to the crash in 2007, Phoenix Arizona home prices have gone up and down like a Teeter Totter at the school playground. One would ask why Phoenix Arizona real estate would be appealing and the answer is resiliency. It has always bounced back. Real estate is a long-term investment and generally speaking losses occur because of an inability to sustain a short period of misfortune.


Like other parts of the country, from 2006 til 2010, Phoenix has seen a significant decline in home prices. Like other parts of the country, Phoenix has seen a drastic increase in foreclosures. Overall, foreclosures have a negative impact on the economy and the emotional impact on the homeowner is immeasurable, but one man's loss is another man's gain.

Bank owned real estate presents an excellent opportunity for purchasing a Phoenix home for sale at a reduced price. While some of these homes may require a little 'TLC', they do pose a high potential for instant equity.

Don't over do it. When qualifying utilize the 31/41 qualifying ratios. The mortgage payment should not represent more than 31% of your total salary, and your total debt should not account for more than 41%. Don't rely on future income.


Reserves, be sure that you maintain two months reserves. This is money saved for a rainy day, or a temporary loss of a job.


While the Phoenix real estate market has fallen, it has shown signs of recovery. Don't wait to long, if you are thinking of purchasing a new home, now may be a great time.

DHS introduces fees for the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)

All foreign nationals entering the US under the visa waiver program will have to submit an application under Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA.) Until now, there has been no fee for applying under ESTA. However, with the passage of the Travel Promotion Act (TPA) which was passed into law by President Obama on March 4, 2010, the US government has announced that there will be fee for all ESTA applications starting from September 8, 2010. Applicants who belong to a country on the US visa waiver program will have to pay a total fee of under the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

On August 6, 2010, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) declared that out of the total fee of , .00 USD would go towards the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) website administration and the remaining .00 USD would be spent for travel promotion.

It has to be noted that the fee collected from the nationals belonging to visa waiver program (VWP) countries will be matched by the contributions from private sector to fund the Corporation for Travel Promotion.

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in collaboration with the Corporation for Travel Promotion will help to provide relevant information to all applicants on required travel documents for entry approval. In addition, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will continue to work with the Department of Commerce to notify all those who will be affected by this change including the foreign and domestic media and the travel industry.

Applicants should note that Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) will take up to 72 hours to process and will be valid for up to two years. So applicants should ensure that they process their application ahead of time. Any applicant who wants to stay in the US for at least ninety days must know that the visa waiver program is a simple option.

Financing Commercial Real Estate Deals

Typically, you will need to secure a loan for financing commercial real estate deals due to the size of the deal and type of property. While this probably makes sense, what you may not consider is where to look for this financing. Most if not all investors would probably consider going to large banks because of their overall size and assets. But read on to see why this might not be your best option and where you should probably be looking instead.


Obtaining Bank Loans:
It is preferable to deal with small, rather than large, banks. Big banks have more money, but not necessarily for you. Also, it’s easier to get lost in a big bank, because those employees may get promoted to a different location or a different department suddenly, your contact may no longer be there when you need them most, like in the middle of a deal.


A small bank that has their charter as a community bank is a better bet. A community bank is formed under what is called the Community Banking Act (CBA). It usually furnishes a certificate of need, just like a hospital would do to get into the community. Their certificate indicates the particular niche of the market on which they are focused. Also, one of the great benefits of a small bank is the loan approval process. They usually don’t have to wait for a committee to meet to discuss your loan. They see each other every day and make decisions quickly, since there are only two or three persons on the loan committee.


And how about this for a twist you may not have considered before. When you find a local bank with whom you enjoy a thriving relationship, consider trying to make them your tenants. Imagine having the community bank that you use for most of your accounts being downstairs in the lobby of your building. You could go down when your representative is not busy, or even visit with one of the officers to see what they think about a particular deal you’re considering. Certainly, this would give you an edge over your competition if there is such a thing when dealing with banks. But surely it couldn't hurt to have such a relationship.


Here is another source for financing commercial real estate deals you may not have considered before.

Finance Company Loans:
Finance companies are capable of doing things that conventional banks can not do due to government regulations or the internal workings of the institution itself. The first thing a person thinks of when this type of company is mentioned, is usually Household Finance or Family Finance. And while these are certainly finance companies, they aren’t the ones you need to be contacting. The types of finance companies you want to contact are the ones with vast real estate financial dealings. Below are three of the larger companies that do this type of business, but you could certainly find others with all of the resources available to us today to locate information.


Some Finance Company Suggestions:
• GE Capital
• Westinghouse
• Ford Credit


So in summary, I hope this provides you with some valuable information perhaps you had not considered prior. By opening your eyes to some additional resources for financing commercial real estate deals, it may be an area you will want to consider for your investing portfolio moving forward.

Real Estate

Have you ever seen those websites about buying houses with "No Money Down?" They have all kinds of people offering great testimonials in little videos about how they have gotten rich, buying rental properties, with absolutely no money out of their pocket. There's usually a wealthy looking man or woman talking to someone about their new house, and they "I own that one," pointing to a beautiful colonial estate they bought on the cheap by using internet website advice "I also own that one next to it, and the one two doors down, and I'll be closing on the one directly across the street from it, next week." They then assure viewers that they have purchased 35 homes in the last eight or ten months, with zero money down on the properties. Plus, in many cases they say they also paid no closing costs.
And, let's not forget, this same person is grossing tens of thousands of dollars monthly, and his net worth is nearly ten million dollars. So they claim
Now, all of this looks wonderful, so when the person selling the course that will teach you how to do this, at a nifty price of just 0, speaks, you are glued to their every word. "Real estate is the safest and fastest way to make money in this economy" the expert will tell you.
So here's the million dollar question. Can you purchase houses with no money down? Can you become a landlord in as little as one month's time and start raking in the cash from those rent payments? The answer is an absolute "Yes." It can be done, and I am proof positive, because others, despite a lot of misinformation out there, have been doing it, not always in terms of buying 35 homes in the past eight to ten months, but in a good amount for sure. The question you should be asking yourself is not can I buy real estate with no money down, but should I?
This is the million dollar question that the person selling the no money down program with all the amazing testimonials hopes you never ask. The websites advertising and marketing strategy would collapse, if they gave anyone a chance to ask this question, because they would be forced to lie if they answered it for everyone. Start your own exhaustive search of different real estate offers and assess for yourself what you want, how much you're willing to invest, and what's a B.B.B. approved offer or business, and what is not. Check scam reporting websites to ensure the offer is legit to. .

Real Estate, real estate agents

Real estate includes land in all the forms. These forms of land include land such as trees, water, and permanently attached items to it which includes fences, building and among others. The term Real Estate is directly related to land. It is used widely in the context of retailing, offices, manufacturing, housing, farming, worship, houses and among others. We could include all the activities related to the property under Real Estate. People who are involved in the real estate sector aim to value add the land by developing it or adding structure to it. These tricks are to enhance the value further of any given property. Since ages the Real Estate Sector has existed however in the recent few years the Real Estate industry in India and across has witnessed boom. It has grown as a second largest employer. With its revenue close up to US $ 12 billion, it further aims to grow estimating up to 30% per annum. The statistics above proves that the Real Estate sector is emerging as an important source of income in the economy today in India and across. The Real Estate sector has provided employment not only in the field of Real Estate but also to various other fields like; developers, constructors, architects, designers, landscapers, engineers, market researchers, financial analysts, construction workers, sale & leasing personnel, and among other fields that are aligned or work closely with the Real estate sector. This proves Real Estate sector as a boon in today’s economy providing employment to various people who specialize in the relevant field. However strong the Real Estate Sector is which is proved from the above data, it has its own flaw. The Real Estate sector proves to be sensitive to any fluctuations in the economy in India or across. The slightest of the fluctuation, can either create wonders or hazels for this sector. This is due to the simple fact that complete transaction of the property is directly depending on the common people who in turn are affected by the fluctuations in the economy of a country. In spite of the flaw mentioned the fact remains that the Real Estate Sector is the second largest sector growing in the Indian economy. It strongly aims at the expansion of the land by developing various office buildings, hotels, apartment buildings, or houses in any particular area. While talking on the job opportunity the Real Estate sector has provided opportunities and with the major responsibility lies on the Real estate consultants and Real estate agents. They aim to provide a complete solution to the investor and new clients in the field of Real Estate. The increasing progress in the field of Real Estate and various constructions the end-result of the Real Estate sector is to provide the space being well constructed for sales and lease, impacting the complete transaction of the property. Thus Real Estate sector proves to be a boom not only to the people but also to the economy of the nation.

Real People Eat Real Food

Chemicals and Additives


'We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavours and furniture polish is made from real lemons.'
Alfred E. Newman


There is never one thing alone that causes ill health or disease - it will always be a combination of many things - BUT - if there were one aspect of our diet that is more irritating than any other - I believe it would be the addition of all the chemicals - the inorganic, lifeless, poisonous chemicals that are listed on the containers of the foodstuffs that occupy the shelves of the supermarkets.


• Let's face it folks - we are 'organic by nature.'


• The body cannot efficiently utilize inorganic matter.


• It will be forced to either lay it down somewhere or attempt to eliminate it - either way - a total waste of energy.


• There are thousands of food additives and chemicals in common use by the world's food industry.


Since the USDA no longer provides data on the amount of additives consumed by the average person (in the Western world) we have to extrapolate a little bit.


• In 1979 the USDA determined that each person consumed up to ¾ of a ton of food each year - of that, additives made up less than 1%.


• If we increase the amount of food consumed over the past 30 yeas we could reasonably expect each person to be ingesting up to and over ½ ounce of additives per day.


• The Columbia Encyclopaedia tells us that food additives comprise approximately 10% (about 150 lbs) of the food consumed by the average American adult.


• The laboratory CANNOT duplicate 'mother nature.


• Additives' are simply chemicals that resemble 'qualities' of food in name only.


• They have no life force.


And I might add - that all vitamins, supplements, tonics and tinctures that are produced and sold in shops - they have no life force either - they can stimulate - or they can depress the nervous system - but that's it.


If you want real health - not just a shine on the surface with the furniture polish - eat the real deal - chemicals are just the peel of the fruit - they cannot build health.

All the best for your health and happiness,
Kevin

What Entrepreneurs Should Learn From Julius Caesar

In the heights of the Roman Empire, Julius Caesar stood leagues above the rest of the world. Some historians would argue that he was the most powerful human to ever walk the planet, and how can you argue? But, to me, he offers more than just a book I read in high school, though that book is rarely used as an example of entrepreneurship and it should be. However, he is more than an example; he is the heartbeat of the world of innovators and should be seen as the guide for all entrepreneurs. Julius said things like ““It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.”, “I would rather be first in a small village in Gaul than second in command in Rome” and “how to avoid getting stabbed in the back at work.”, and all of these quotes could be thought of as symbols of the way we all must think.

He was an inspiration and a role model for the free world, though he was an emperor. He should be read by entrepreneurs, not Zig Ziglar or Robert T. Kiyosaki, he was the real deal. He owned the world, not a sales technique or a real estate strategy. True power comes from understanding true power, not what someone else wants you to buy. He also said “Men freely believe that which they desire”, which is why these “gurus” exist. Make sure you are reading all the time, but make sure you are reading things that draw real thought and come from a place of where you would like to be one day. Don’t believe the hype and rush into a business that someone else claims to be a success in because most of the time those that you should learn from cost more than .95. Go to the source of information and do it right or don’t do it at all. It may sound strange, but be like Frank Lucas in American Gangster and go to the source directly or stop playing the game. Find the people that matter in your world and get to them the right way.

Now, being that Julius Caesar was the most powerful man in the world, I can safely say that he understood success and power better than any of us ever will. This is what no modern day book can teach you, how to truly handle success. Sure they teach you about the things to do to be a success and the road to walk down, but do they teach you how to handle it when you get there?

There is something that very few people knew about Julius Caesar. He always had a shadow behind him while he ruled his empire. He always had a skinny peasant standing behind him that would lean over and whisper in his ear which would change the look on his face and the way he would speak. This peasant was not a God or a Statesman; he was a peasant that Julius Caesar himself paid to work for him. Everywhere Julius would go, this poor man would go and never did this poor man speak to anyone but the Caesar. Never did anyone know what they spoke about and why he was there. But, the story behind this man is one that I have taken to heart and every other businessman that is truly destined for greatness should also take to heart.

The story goes like this. One day the Caesar was walking through his palace and he stopped right outside the gates because he saw a man working on the wall. His guards immediately ran to accost this man and Julius stopped them so he could ask this man what he was doing. The man replied that he had been working on filling a hole in the wall, at no cost or want of recognition. The man explained that 2 known criminals had come in to his eatery in the poorer section of Rome and spoken about this crack in the wall. They spoke of the ways they were going to use it to break in and steal from the Caesar. Without thinking twice this man came to fix it. Julius was stunned and amazed and took this man under his arm for a walk. After this walk, no one really knows what happened because of the secrecy involved, this man never left the side of the Caesar again.

The legend says that Julius had taken this man in and provided his entire family more money than they could ever spend in exchange for his undying loyalty and time. He saw what he thought to be a true Roman and a real honest man and rewarded him for it. However, this man would have the hardest job in all of Rome, as the legend goes, and through his occupation every free spirited innovator should learn.

Julius Caesar, the most powerful man on the planet had asked this peasant to be his voice of reason. He had given this man the daunting task of being the voice of reason to the most feared and respected man in the world in a time of pure chaos. This man, that no one knew, or ever spoke to, had the task of standing behind the most imposing figure in history at all times. Every time the Caesar got an ego or stepped out of line, according to the guidelines of best practices and Roman rules that Caesar himself wrote, you would see this skinny peasant lean in and whisper to Julius. He was only allowed to say one phrase in public and was rarely allowed to leave the grounds. For this his family never had to worry about financial matters ever again. But if he were to ever fail; his blood line would have ended on the spot.

Julius Caesar hired a man to stand behind him and whisper in his ear, “You’re only a man, you’re only a man, you’re only a man” which is a far cry from the rich and powerful of our time. Today the rich and powerful will pay people to tell them the exact opposite and even pay to have others lie to them so they feel even more omnipotent. Caesar understood power and its uses and downfalls and took the time to look in the mirror. He noted that every powerful man will be tempted to think they are Godlike in the face of fame and fortune and he humbled himself at every possible chance.

This story, though legend and not historical (because they killed him too before anyone had a chance to ask him what he did for a living) tells me more about success than anything any “guru” ever could. It tells me that we all need to have a voice of reason and a person to stay in our face about the things we do on the way up or at the top. And, that it is more important WHO we are and not WHAT we are or what we have done. Take this this to heart and find those in your life that tell you the truth at all times and hold on to them at all costs. You may not even like them, but you need them if you plan to be a real success and not just another wanna be “guru”. I have found 3 in my life and they have saved my rear end more times by keeping me in check when I succeeded than anyone could ever have helped when I failed. It is more important to have your feet on the ground than your head in the clouds. Don’t be afraid to look in the mirror and when it is hard to do, make sure you have someone there to hold it for you. The bottom-line is simple, power corrupts and only those that truly deserve it will maintain it. Protect what is yours and stay true to who you are as an entrepreneur, it is the only thing you can really control. Hiring a coach to keep you from making mistakes is usually not needed, but having a coach that helps you stay as focused as you did on the way up, will never fail.

Home Insurance - 'Home Sweet Home'

Insurance is a promise by an organisation to an individual to cover his or her losses that often come in life. The insurance companies offer various types of schemes to the people to cover up the expenses of the losses. One can insure their vehicle, house and even life.


Home is the place which is necessary for every person. Then, how can this attribute be untouched with these useful schemes. Home Insurance is a scheme that covers your homes, and farm houses. Although it is called a property insurance but it also insures your offices, flats, building and whatever you want to insure. With its policy you can cover many personal insurance protections that protects you from financial losses regarding your flats and buildings from any kind of losses. It covers the loss of your living expenses, loss of possessions and any kind of calamity that may occur at your home.


If you own a house then you must have the insurance of it as you don't know what may happen to your house tomorrow.

It keeps your home and your liabilities safe for your future. It is a kind of safety to your house as the policy safe your roof in your bad times. To apply for these benefits you first need to pay some amount called 'premium' to that firm at some specified interval of times. Nowadays, every third company is giving insurance, whether its home, life, car or any thing you want. This helps the person or rather insures him that he will not come on road if some kind of crises falls on you. Newspapers, magazines, fliers, TV, everywhere you can now finds the ads related to insurance on lowest possible premiums. Online services also play a vital role in this regard.

Home Insurance is kind of shield between you and your house that protects you future.

When talking about policy, Dwelling policy (DP) is a similar kind of thing that is used for residences that are not qualified for vacancy/non-occupancy, secondary residence/seasonal. DP includes both property and liabilities cover that with any kind of additional premium. It means that only one single premium is paid for all the coverage related to the house.

Before taking up your the home insurance always remember to read its manual first as it has some but major terms and conditions, clause etc., that don't cover your loss or you can also say major losses. The home insurance policy or any kind of policy is set for a specific period of time. So do clear the facts and things that are covered under you policy before like- the amount your company is determining for your house, what things are covered including the property in the home, the damaged liabilities coverage and all related kind of queries. These are some major points that are somewhere mentioned in clause, terms and conditions but the person who is seeking insurance goes unaware of these things.

More About Commercial Real Estate

Being a legal term in some of the major jurisdictions of the world, real estate encompasses land and the permanently attached properties along with it, specifically the residential and commercial property of any kind. If you consider leaping into the commercial real estate investment then it will be a wise decision to be prepared to come up with some intricate decisions along with some lengthy research that includes researching the right properties available and the market conditions as well.


Commercial Real Estate is divided into three different categories including industrial, office and retail. It demands full knowledge of all the properties that may fall in these three distinct sub divisions. There are many states in the world where any residential property holding more than a specified number of divisions qualifies to be a commercial property for tax purposes and borrowing.


The commercial real estate may be one of the toughest businesses to start with, however, you can even reap maximum rewards from it, if found lucky enough to hit the right odds.

Selection of the right type of a property will always be considered an essential point in this particular field. Investing in separate and dissimilar properties like apartment buildings and retail may cause a greater stress and may likely lead you to failure.

Select only one type of property when you start with your real estate ventures and thus become a professional in that particular section before you move on to another new venues. As an investor, it will be imperative to learn about the property, market scenario, restrictions and conditions, zoning ordinances, existing leases, environmental hazards, tenants and the existing conditions as well.

Real Commercial Printing Costs

In looking at commercial printing costs, you should not just look at the monetary value you should also look at the effort of both parties and the time spent in creating the prints.  One of the most important things to do to cut costs in printing is to find the best commercial printer who can give you a good price for your print and less of a headache when printing starts.

Colors
Do you really need multi – color printing (more than one color)? If you are picking just black for your prints, printing will relatively be cheaper compared to a print that has one specific color.  The more colors you require apart from black the more it will cost.  Since our monitors use RGB colors, the prints will most likely not match the actual design and should you require the colors to match your pick as exact as possible, your price just might go up.  So to save you a few bucks, be fine with the colors that comes out the proof unless the colors are way to different from the one you chose.

Paper Choice
Your choice of paper can also affect the price quote your target printers may give you.

Thicker paper and paper made of good quality will obviously add to the price.  This is a very important choice as papers ability to absorb ink varies greatly plus papers of good quality survive longer than the thinner ones.  You can however use the cheaper ones for simple handouts that people just might throw away eventually.

Print dimensions
The bigger your prints are the bigger the costs, this would increase even more if you require a particular size that is not commonly done.

Print volume
How much prints are you thinking of having produced? Commercial prints are often more than 500 copies or more.  Ideally your printer should give you a good rate for the volume of your prints.

The more prints you require for printing the more savings you get.  This will not only save you money, it will also save you time and effort to go back to your printers if you need the same prints  again just because you did not print that much.

Pre-flight/submission/uploading Check
The more thorough your review of your design you do before you give to the printers the more you save on monetary costs, efforts and time.  Look at everything from all corners; check your fonts, colors, simple spellings and grammar, typographical errors, wrong pictures etc.  The more you scrutinize everything the better for you and your pocket.

Finishing
Additional add-ons apart from the print on the paper like binding is another add-on to the bill.  Some printers include this in the package to give you better rates.

Turnaround time
Your chosen printer should meet any deadline you require.  While monetarily late prints will not cost you greatly (unless you have an event coming in a few days), it will how ever cost you the time.  The time lost is the time that the prints should have been with the intended users.

Understanding the entire process of commercial printing will help you greatly in cutting down the costs.  Talk to your chosen commercial printer and be friendly, nice customers tend to be given better packages or cheaper rates than arrogant ones.

Thailand Villas

Thailand is a land of exotic locales, stunning views, mouth-watering cuisine, lush flora and rare fauna and has lately topped the list of favorite holiday destinations. When in Thailand, there is no better option to stay than in a villa. Thailand Villas are resplendent in luxury and grandeur and are any day a better option than hotels. Thailand Villas are an amalgam of contemporary and traditional culture under one roof. Generally a villa would include 3 to 5 bedrooms, pavilions, magnificent pools, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living rooms and beautifully landscaped gardens to spend some peaceful time in.

The investment potential of Thailand is on an upsurge and it is the best time to invest in a property there. The government in Thailand is focusing on a 10% growth of annual tourism and is taking aggressive measures to achieve it. The thriving tourism industry is one of the major contributors to the rising investment in Thailand property. Recently, many new luxury resorts have come up and are attracting tourists like never before. You may buy a villa for your personal use as well as for renting it out during holiday season to reap maximum benefits from your property.

Villas in Thailand are of various types and you may pick one according to your preference and budget. Private villas are a private Thailand property and are located on individual plots of land. Some of these villas demand a security deposit to be made in order to ensure complete safety of the premises, but you may get some villas that do not demand any such security. Most villas have an excellent in-house staff for cleaning, washing, cooking, laundry etc who are available at your service throughout your stay. The recent property boom in Thailand has made investing in a villa here as a lucrative option. However, it would be wise to investigate the ownership, laws, pricing, locality, amenities and facilities of the villa before you invest any money there.

Villas are preferred by people who indulge in luxurious surroundings and have the money to afford the luxury. Hence, this profile of your forthcoming customer has to be given due importance when you look for villas. Compromising on the open spaces and quality would only do you harm as your villa would not be suitable for the person who may rent it. As you are catering to a niche market who splurges on luxury, it is imperative to buy a villa that does justice to the tastes and preferences of a prospective customer. It would not be prudent to cut corners as it would affect your clientele. Invest in a villa that is luxurious and caters to all the whims and fancies of a customer. This would ensure a steady rental all year round and would give you returns all your life.

Bali-villas

Bali Villas, doesnt the name sound interesting in itself? The entire experience and the ambience of such villas is even more interesting, beyond the imaginations and the fantasies of an individual. The feeling of being at home outside ones home is a feeling unparalleled. One gets to get all the comforts and the luxuries of ones home but s/he is away from all the fuss that the city has on offer. This is the beauty of the
Bali Villas. As the name itself suggests, such villas are located in the serene and scenic location of Bali in the mystical Indonesia. However, these villas have managed to create an identity for themselves, that of being the most different and the most imaginatively comforting places for holidays. This comfort of the villas is added up by the mixture of grandeur and humility in the hospitality offered at these Bali Villas.

The trend with most Bali Villas is that the guest is welcomed in a grand style. The driver who is assigned with the responsibility of picking up the guests sees to it that the guests are made to feel as important as possible. The guest, along with his/her family, is driven to the villa from the airport in a cab, owned by the villa. The driver, in cases of most Bali Villas, is also on the rolls of the villa. This adds to the control the villa owners could have over the quality which is being delivered right at the outset. This is important because the driver and the cab are the first point of contact of the villa with the guests. Therefore, if the first impression on the guests is good, the rest of things become smoother for the staff members and the owner/s of these Bali Villas.

Staff members and owners of all Bali Villas know it well that their existence depends upon the quality that they deliver. Promising grandeur is one thing, delivering it with precision is another. That is where comes in the role of an effective villa manager. The villa manager takes care of the entire stay of the guests at the villa. In case the number of expected guests is large then one could even consider having more than one manager for the job. These Bali Villas would do well to entertain only quality when it comes to the managers because the job, as simple as it might look, is a difficult one. The guests of the villa can also be guided on tours and trips they could make outside the villa to explore the city and its cultures and heritage. Bali Villas should, thus, secure a grand reception and stay for the guests.

Real Belonging

I belong to our town band. We have a tendency to're a assortment of odds and ends who each plays a musical instrument of one kind or another. Mostly we all played our instruments after we were in grade faculty, and then put them in storage for several years till retiring to the tiny mountain valley where we all live. Each instrument could be a bit tarnished and definitely the youngest is a lot of than middle aged. As an example, my saxophone is older than I am.


We have a tendency to have drums, a baritone, tuba, clarinet, saxophone, two or 3 trumpets, relying on the day, 2 flutes (3 when a guest from out of city is staying with a relative), a keyboard, and eventually, we have a tendency to have 2 instruments you do not typically see in a very band; an accordion and a home-made instrument that does not have a name. It is a single heavy-gauge string tied to a wood shovel handle hooked up to a plastic bucket for the sounding board, all on a picket plywood base about 18 inches square.

It makes a real thrumming sound that adds to the percussion of the drums.

We have a tendency to don't march. We have a tendency to sit... and play. We tend to play twice a year. On the fourth of July, we have a tendency to arise early and get on the back of a trailer and are pulled around our very little mountain valley (full-time population 120, summer vacation population 800 - a lot of or less relying on the weekend and the holiday). We tend to wake everyone up around 7:00am and then we have a tendency to all gather right down to the New England style church (engineered in 1868) and have additional music by the band, a very little program, and after all breakfast for everybody within the community.


The complete-time residents came from all over the United States to measure in this small community.

The half-time residents principally return from the encompassing communities and cities from which they escape on hot summer days or once they want to play within the snow within the winter.

The simplest factor about it, though, is the feeling that exists in the valley. People usually comment on feeling how peaceful, serene and something else... they simply can't put their finger on it.


I assume it's as a result of of the individuals themselves; from people who initial settled the valley and every one those who've come ever since. They've come from everywhere and they've gotten along... as a result of they want to.


There are different religions, nationalities, political persuasions, and ages. One factor all of them have in common is their love for our very little valley. We tend to unite in several common causes, such as clean-ups, fundraisers, barn dances, potlucks, sicknesses, surgeries, and celebrations. And yes, we have a tendency to probably apprehend each others' business too much.


Still, our love for the sensation we have a tendency to've all helped produce, and the desire we tend to have to take care of it, keeps us together. We have differences, yes, however we tend to don't worry an excessive amount of concerning settling things that may't be settled. Instead we all simply target being tolerant, obtaining along, and enjoying the things we tend to share rather than worry concerning the things we don't.

Flipping House

The term flipping house is used to described purchasing revenue generating asset and quickly reselling it for profit. Sometimes others thought (new to this business) that in this kind of business, you are excluded in paying capital gain. Well you don’t need to pay capital gain if it is not for reselling purpose or you will be living in the house you are buying.

When you venture to this kind of business, you need to be ready with all the necessary information. If you are tight budget type, you need to reconsider, because there are some unexpected expenses that come along the way. Normally the process is for sale houses in a good location, good neighborhood and good ambiance. Eager to buy it, you will contact the real estate agent, remember you have competitor in buying that house, which surely thinking the same thing ‘profit’.

If you are an old timer investor who knows what houses are going to be marketable or houses that are ‘selling like hot cakes’, you can already do flipping house. Once you bid, real estate agents will check on all the offer. Sometimes there are some buyers who are best in using aggressive approach - approach that could be annoying like buyer keeps on calling even to the agents house, calling on the real owner of the house or giving some story on how badly they want to buy and renovate the house, and surprisingly agent will give in, even there are better offer. For the investor, there is a lot of work to be done, although it already planned on how it will end up or look like after the changes and renovation.

Good investors don’t just buy houses for flipping, but also, they are looking for persons who will probably work with them at affordable price. You can research that even one knows how to draw and lay out things, he still hires a draftsman because he doesn’t have a license. Make sure to check even the draftsman you are going to hire - sometimes you can hire a draftsman who is not too expensive, which will help you indeed with your budget. And there are some draftsmen, who have some architecture background or maybe taking up architecture at the same time, so he will provide some suggestion or idea, you will find it brilliant and unique, and will adopt it.

Flipping house is truly a good type of investment, knowing your budget and your plan with the house - surely it will become a profit.

Find commercial real estate listings

Do you know where to find commercial real estate listings? Please note that you are at the right place. On our listings you can all buy house cheap such as real estate apartments, beach houses etc. Have you ever come across a property or home owner who wants much money to be paid for the property? Welcome to the real world, it happens all the time to real estate experts. The question is would you like to see our listings or not? Do you take the listings or not? Will the customer reduce the cost to a more realistic level quickly so the listing does not stagnate on the market?


The pricing difficulty arises because most property owners think that they paid a good cost for the property and they want their money back plus an extra.

In their view time escalates the assets value (even if it is only a few years!). In their view prices do not go back when it comes to their wonderful assets. Well the conflicting is the case and prices do go backward for all sorts of reasons. The recent global monetary crisis in many countries has proven that.

Keep in mind that you do not have to list a property just because the client wants to list it with you or your agency. Protect your time and protect your status. Remember that an unsold property that is on the market for a long time will have impact on your reputation. It is better to be known for listing and selling a few good properties than listing lots of poor listings that are expensive


Before you take the expensive listing on there are a couple of considerations that you are required to make given that it's your time that will be taken in the marketing of the expensive property.

Take into consideration these questions:
Would it be better to let some other mediators take the listing at the inflated price and waste their time?
Can you come in later after the other mediator has remained unsuccessful with the property, thereby allowing you to condition the seller to a more reasonable price?
Will the client lessen the price quickly and soon if enquiry is low?
What range will the client drop the price to if they are to make the property more commercial?
How long have you got the listing for and is it long enough to match the customer to the market?

My theory is that the customers are not always right when it comes to price and the way to challenge them on their price theory is to propose that they put the property up for sale at public sale. Tell the client that the public sale method is the best way to get the best price that exists in the market today.


If the client is serious on selling the property and if they think their property is as good as they make it out to be, then they will not be frightened of the public sale process. One final thing needs to be said and done here. The broker funded marketing campaigns are necessary and the money for that campaign has to be paid before you start the marketing.

Villa Holidays

Villa holidays can feature many of the key elements that make up the perfect break – comfortable and private accommodation, peaceful and attractive surroundings and great weather hopefully.


Holidays are made up of a combination of many factors, all of which contribute to a great experience if things turn out well. For different people this combination of elements will vary. While some will prefer an active holiday resort, full of attractions and organised events, others will go for the opposite, opting for a remote spot where peace and quiet is the signature of every day. Sun and sand beach holidays are chosen by millions every year, while the beauty and seclusion of the high mountains is something others return to regularly.


The key components of any holiday typically include the weather and the type of accommodation, but food quality, service levels, good company, seaside opportunities, local sightseeing, sporting options and attractive scenery are all ranked as important.

In selecting a holiday from a travel brochure or website we make judgements on what we are purchasing based on the information available. We study the hotel features, check websites that cover the local area and read reviews posted by previous visitors. Once we make a selection and book the holiday, we are then relying on the accuracy of that information and the quality of the travel company to make sure our holiday turns out well. Certain elements are then out of our control, the weather of course, but also the standard of the hotel and the food it provides, the service levels provided by the hotel staff and of course whether we get on with the other hotel residents. If we have been to a resort or hotel before then we may know what we are getting, but for new locations a certain amount of uncertainty remains and it is that uncertainty that many people feel uncomfortable about.

By opting for a villa holiday, much of that uncertainty is taken away and a high degree of flexibility and control is returned to the holidaymaker, and that perhaps is one of the key attractions of this type of holiday.

Once we have found and booked the type of villa we want, many of the remaining holiday components remain totally under our control, except for the weather of course. We can choose what we want to do everyday and when we do it. We can get up early and enjoy the sunrise or perhaps have a lie in and recharge our batteries without being disturbed. We can choose what to eat and when we want to eat, not being restricted by hotel timetables. One favourite option is to visit a nearby market, purchase some regional produce and try out a local recipe. If we don’t want to cook for ourselves we can pick a local restaurant to try and if it does not meet our standards we are quite free to choose a different one the next day. If the villa has its own private swimming pool we can opt to sit around it all day, undisturbed by others or we can pack a few things and head down to the local beach.

Cost is also a factor when it comes to booking a villa holiday. Unlike some other types of holiday accommodation, villas are usually priced per property, so for larger families or groups of friends a villa can prove to be a very cost effective choice. If you like your space and can afford to rent a large villa, then you’ll enjoy the luxury of having the whole property to yourself, with rooms to relax in, eat in, sleep in, plus all the outdoor space. In some cases you may be left to your own devices for the entire duration of your stay. In many cases a housekeeper will visit the property once or twice each week and in the case of luxury serviced villas, you may even have fulltime staff or a dedicated cook.


Choice is the key element of villa holidays and as well as there being many different villas to choose from, once your holiday has started the ability to tailor it and choose exactly what you do remains throughout.
