New Year’s Resolutions

It’s still early on in the year.  How are your new year’s resolutions coming along?  Most Americans make these resolutions hoping to bring about significant change in their lifestyles.  But usually, by the 3rd or 4th week of January, they’ve forgotten about them and return to their regular habits.  They fail to recognize the power such changes in habits will make in their lives.

Adults who change their lifestyles can decrease their chances of developing heart disease later in life, according to a study conducted by the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.  Researchers collected data on lifestyle habits of approximately 5,000 participants between the ages of 18 and 30, then analyzed the status of their health 20 years later.

They found that 25 percent of participants who had adopted at least one healthy habit (maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, exercising etc.) had cut their risk of developing heart disease.  The 40 percent who had dropped one or more healthy practices had actually increased their chances of cardiac problems.

The takeaway:  Dropping unhealthy habits at any age can have a positive effect on your heart health.  So don’t assume you can’t help yourself just because you’ve pursued the wrong patch up until now.

The Miami realtor plays a critical role in the real estate transaction.

Many home buyers and sellers are not aware of the true value that the realtor provides during the course of a real estate transaction.  Many people, in fact, are not cognizant of the expertise, professional knowledge, and just plain hard work that go into bringing about a successful real estate transaction.

A multitude of important services and steps required in a real estate transaction are carried out by the realtor of the brokerage staff.  Most of these step have traditionally been viewed simply as part of a realtor’s professional responsibilities to the client.  But, without them, the transaction could be placed in jeopardy.

Depending on the transaction, some of these services and steps may take minutes, hours or even days to complete, while some may not be needed.

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 3.36.21 PMWhile markets fluctuate regularly, are you going to let a potential market fluctuation keep you from buying your dream home or other investment property?

Or are you going to let a potential market fluctuation lead you to sell your family’s home in order to benefit before a possible downturn?

Of course not.

Markets go up; markets come down. We’ve seen plenty of cycles time and time again and we’ll see many more as time progresses.

Consider these opportunities to grow both your investment portfolio and other assets. In market downturns, the best thing to do is to wait and observe. A great buying opportunity is just around the corner.

Take a look at the South Florida real estate market, for example. The market begin to change later in 2007, prior to the stock market crash of late 2008/early 2009. What ensued was one of the best buying opportunities ever to be capitalized upon later in 2010 and 2011. Properties were purchased at nearly half of what these are today available for on the market.

Tap into a home equity line of credit to purchase that investment property you’ve been eyeing.
