Spread your real estate investments

As real estate market continues to improve, many investors now are chasing the “hot markets” and putting all their eggs in one basket. Although is tempting to concentrate on one particular area, you have to ensure that you are not over dependent on one particular market, one particular type of property or one particular country.
Those who have been successful time and time again in the real estate market are those who have sold before the top and bought before the bottom of the market.
Investing on a medium to long-term basis and continually monitor the value of your real estate assets by making changes where applicable and assess the risk/reward ratio is something that you should consider for a profitable long-term business.

Remodel trend: Larger shower subs for tub

A more modern and functional bathroom adds to the quality of life at home, and potentially adds to a home’s resale value. Of course, there are limits to consider — from budgetary to footprint restriction. However, the oversized soaking tubs take up a lot of room and although they look glamorous, large tubs require more water than most standard water heaters can supply to completely fill with hot water.
If a good soaking bath is not a high priority for you, consider converting a tub into a larger, more-luxurious shower. The shower possibilities are almost unlimited, including body sprays, handhelds, rain heads and more.
Keep in mind that some of the innovative options could increase the cost of the project.
From spalike luxury to utilitarian simplicity, there are many options to create your own version of a bathroom update.
