Montgomery AL Real Estate Investing Tips

by The Hat Team

The word is spreading in the world of real estate—“Now is a good time to invest in Montgomery AL real estate.”  The reasons behind this advice appear to be both numerous and sound and include justifications such as low home real estateprices and interest rates, an increased demand for rental property, strong signs of a recovering real estate market, and the continuing volatility of the stock market.

Think that you might like to invest in Montgomery AL real estate and become a landlord?  Then continue reading.  Investment gurus and experienced Realtors have many sage pieces of advice for you about property selection, financial considerations, and building a team.  Among them are:

  • Find the right piece of real estateThe Internet can be your best friend when searching for houses to buy, so remember to use the net to check out homes and neighborhoods. Investigate current rental rates, average salaries, and unemployment figures for that area.  Be alert to homes that are in mortgage default and about to be foreclosed on. You may want to consider properties in pre-foreclosure if you have ample time to wait. Look for properties that don't need major fixes but will benefit from quick, low-cost improvementsChoose a knowledgeable Realtor who is experienced in investment properties.  Think about joining a real estate investment club to meet a wide variety of professionals.
     
  • Run the numbers:  Get every last expense figured into your calculations, and be sure that you will have positive cash flow from the start. Include repairs, mortgage payments, taxes, insurance, maintenance, management, HOA dues, utilities and reserves.
     
  •  Hire your own professionals:  You may think it would be easier to just utilize the inspectors or appraisal professionals selected by the seller, but it will hurt you in the long run. No one likes spending money on something they could get for free. Nevertheless, it is good to hire individuals that you can truly trust.

It is important to realize that investing in Montgomery AL real estate is not a get-rich-quick scheme and that it does require some work on your part. While appreciation will occur over the long term, you don't know how long that will be. In the meantime, you want to be able to make a profit, or at least not lose money every month.

Montgomery Halloween Happenings

by The Hat Team

halloweenThere's a goblin at my window,
A monster by my door.
The pumpkin at my table
Keeps on smiling more and more.
There's a ghost who haunts my bedroom,
A witch whose face is green.
They used to be my family,
Till they dressed for Halloween.
- by Sandra Liatsos

It’s nearly that time of year again—Halloween, a time of ghosts and ghouls, tricks and treats, and costumes and candy!  Did you know that Halloween is second only to Christmas in terms of spending?  Yep--$1.2 million on costumes and another $2.5 million on candy, decorations, and other themed paraphernalia! 

Other little-known facts include:

  • 86% of Americans decorate their houses.                                                  
  • 10% of pet owners costume their pets. (Click here for unique ideas)
  • 35 million pounds of candy corn are produce yearly. (How many are consumed in your Montgomery home?)

Halloween traditions are many and varied.  “Tis the night for donning a costume, wearing a mask, bobbing for apples, and, the children’s favorite—trick-or-treating.  Looking for something different to give to the little ones coming to your Montgomery home this year?  How about juice boxes, mini-marshmallows, popcorn balls, fruit roll-ups, 4 pack crayons, small glo-sticks, silly erasers, themed pencils, or goldfish snacks?

What is a mummy’s favorite music?    Wrap
Best Halloween insurance?  Mediscare
Favorite drink of ghosts and goblins?  Ghoulade    

Carving a Jack-o-Lantern

Be your pumpkin orange, white, green, and yes, even blue, you want the face on the porch of your Montgomery home to be individual and unique.  Get free templates to assist you in carving or for cut and paste faces here.

If you see a spider on Halloween, the spirit of a loved one is watching over you.

Costumes

Forget the old standbys of ghost and witch.  Get creative and think about the unusual.  A bearded lady? A cupcake?  Or perhaps popcorn or an aquarium?  Although the web is filled with sites which sell costumes, you can express yourself by making your own garb.  Check out CostumeIdeaZone.com for silly, serious, and/or super fast ideas.

PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES FOR THE YOUNG AND YOUNG AT HEART CAN BE FOUND AT Caboose.com, Halloween.com, ZombiePumpkins.com, and TheTeachersCorner.net.  For creative ideas such as wicked wreaths, friendly ghosts, fright lights, tasty treats, and much, much more, visit LowesCreativeIdeas.com.
