Rent Collecting Methods to Know for Your Rental Property Business

Running rental property means you have certain due diligence to accomplish daily, weekly, and monthly. One of the most obvious tasks you need to do as the owner of a property you rent out as well as a landlord is collecting rent.

Rent collecting methods for your rental property business

It sounds simple and not many investors pay much attention to it. Instead, many of investors pay attention more on how to find a tenant.

Well, it is also important as the first step in running your rental property business. However, you still need a work to do after finding a tenant which is rent collection.

Rent collecting methods in running your rental property business

Rent collection is supposed to be easy thing to do. However, it is not only for you as a payoff for all your hard work and investment but also for your tenants. When you make it easy for them then you give them a favor in not complicating anything.

If you make rent collecting process too complicated, it will be just a nuisance both for you and your tenants.

It is something you need to avoid since it is monthly task you need to accomplish. So that, pay your attentions to some alternatives of rent collecting methods you need to know that I’d like to tell you on a second.

The first method is of course none other than cash. Collecting cash sound simple but it also can cause potential hassle.

It is not efficient to let your tenants send cash in the mail. The solution is to drive to your rental property every month for rent collecting. Of course, sparing time to meet up with your tenants and retrieve cash from them is not the best way.

To minimize potential problems, it is highly advised to set time and date every month. So, there is no risk of conflict to emerge.

Next rent collecting method is by check. It is quite popular and many landlords and tenants still use this method. However, it has also downside such as lagging issue regarding to time a check is sent to the time it is received.

There is also potential loss of items in the mail. There is common conflict such as when tenants say they have sent the check on the first but the landlords haven’t received until the fourth.

This problem often leads to bigger conflict than it is necessary.

Next method is online. This is getting popular and preferred by most rental property business. With the help of advanced technology, online payment is more effective and efficient that it is thought before.

There are various program and website online offering payment service online. It is easy and safe. There is also advantage of this method such as clear time and date of the transaction made.

The problem is also minimized since there is no lagging issue in the mail. You also don’t have to spend extra time driving to your rental property to collect cash.

Make sure that you choose trusted and reputable sites to set up online payment from your tenants if you prefer this method.

How to Make Your Small Room Look Bigger

Not everyone can afford a large space for their dwelling. Even a cramped structure in the middle of a city cost a fortune. However, that does not mean you have to live in a claustrophobic dwelling. There are many practical ways to improve your limited space and make the most out of it.

How to Make Your Small Room Look Bigger

Get rid of dormant items

This may seem obvious that the many clutter of items would make your space way too packed. But many would overlook this in favor of a more “major” or permanent solution. Evaluate your space. Take a look at stuff that you can eliminate from your room. Perhaps some of the stuff on your table are not frequently used anymore? Or a certain decoration—or maybe even a furniture—is not to your taste anymore? It’s time to re-evaluate them. You’ll be surprised by how much space you actually have by eliminating the stuff you already have.

Think of your rooms as a flowing space

Eliminate the restriction of vision imposed upon by walls. Removing your wall is a major decision. However, it’s one of the most effective methods. If you can’t eliminate the entirety of your wall, then opening the side or the center of the wall can serve just as well for your space to be open and feel larger. Install a sliding door if you cannot commit on a permanently-open space. An age-old option that you can put into practice is the Japanese sliding doors. If you decide to have a glass or even a clouded glass, you’ll also allow lights coming from the other room, creating another feature on a connected feel of the room.

Sunlight for a brighter, larger room

The natural lighting is powerful. A well-lit room by the sun will have minimum problems with shadows cast that would make a limited-space area feel even smaller. If you don’t have a sufficient window for this, then consider in investing in one. A large window that allow the sunlight in can make such a big difference to a room.

Pay attention to the unity of the space

To create the effect of a large, unified room, many designers opt to create an effect of a room being of one of a “whole”. This is particularly true for open-plan living, but it can also be applied to other rooms, creating a semi-open space. The color of the furniture and the color of the wall need to have the feel of being whole. It’s important for all elements in the room to be in harmony with each other.

Give a view to the outdoor

This may not be able to be accomplished with all rooms. But even when your room is on the upper floors, as long as your room and the outdoor is immediately separated by one wall, this is highly possible. You can tear down the maximum height of the wall and replace it with a double or triple-paned windows. Multiple paned window is essential for a good insulation since it is immediately exposed to the climate. Giving a generous view to the small garden or the neighbor is an excellent way to make your space seem so much less cramped. In addition to that, it also gives way for natural light to brighten your room.

Things to NEVER Do On Komodo Sailing Trip

So you have decided to take the famous Komodo sailing trip. Spending a few days living in a liveaboard, diving in numerous Komodo’s world-class diving sites, and exploring the gorgeous islands in betweens. Nothing can be as perfect as this remote frontier to unwind all worldly problems and just to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of nature.

As a tourist, however, you still have the responsibility to keep Komodo area as how you found them. The UNESCO-protected region is extremely sensitive; both underwater and the upper-land.

Things to NEVER Do On Komodo Sailing Trip

Bottling Up the Pink Sands

We got it. Komodo’s pink beach is beyond pretty. The rosy glow charms anyone who come and see it—especially for the first timer. With being only seven in the world, the urge to scoop a few spoon of the pink sands into a small bottle can even feels stronger than before.

But for the love of Komodo, please don’t.

Some pink beaches in the world has turned into less pink due to tourists’ greed. Don’t let it happened to our Komodo’s Pink Beach.

Lit a Bonfire in the Deserted Island—Or Throw Cigar on the Bushes

As you have probably know, one of the National Parks’  charm is the crips golden savannah that covers most of the undulating hills in the area. The gorgeous savannah fields are a result of adaptation to Flores’ dry climate. Such vegetation means the islands are highly susceptible to fire. Even littlest tinder can start fire that, with the help of the wind and dry grasses, will spread quickly and burn the whole island.

P.S: It has happened before, which recent fire occurred on poor Gili Lawa

Lit a Firework in Komodo Sailing Trip for Whatever Reason

Today, some Komodo sailing trip starts catering private party and honeymoon trip. Following nature of a party, you might want to add fun to the night and lit a firework. But then again, you better not. The fallen spark, if it fell to nearby islands, can ignite an unwanted fire.

Throw Inorganic Trash to the Sea—Especially Plastic Waste

Beneath the ocean, the life of hundred species of corals, fishes, and abundant marine creatures depend on clean water—otherwise they will be vanished. You don’t want to see those pristine diving sites get corrupted with trash, so please restrain the need to throw anything to the sea. Not only they are a pain the eyes and foul-smelled, trash are a major factor to the death of marine life—who can easily mistaken plastic like foods. To turtles, plastic bag resembles jelly fishes, their favorite snack and they will get choked trying to swallow the plastics. Sea birds are known to mistook plastic pellets as fish eggs, and million of them die per year as the result.

You can start by collecting your own garbage and reducing plastic usage during the sailing trip. Start simply by denying plastic bags and plastic straws, both onboard or around the park. Be an ocean hero.

Things To Anticipate Before Your Property Investment Falls

Everyone want to success in what they are doing, we are trying so hard for that day and night. But, not everything will be run as what you want. Sometimes, you get the better results, sometimes you just need to think about what you have done before you as the cause of your fails. In property investment, it is also the same with the other businesses in general, you have to prepare yourself and your business for the worst case.

Anticipate the property investment falls

So, what will you do if your property business falls? Have you prepare many things to secure your business? If not, I will inform you about some of the important things to know for anticipating right before your property investment going down.

What to prepare before your property investment falls?

Investors are required to read where the trends are going to. It doesn’t matter if you are the property and real estate investor, stock exchanger or else, if you know how to direct or at least can finds out the next trend in the market related to your business, that will be the great thing to get. It is because, there will always the time where investing in property won’t give you a better financial state but the otherwise. The worst case is, you may are going to broke and I believe that it will be something you don’t want to experience in this life.

There are some of the variables why investing in property business will be the wrong step to walks on. It can be the decreasing of people’s purchasing power, inflation, the worst marketing strategy, nature disaster or your team is late to finds out that the property is at the disaster-prone, strict regulation from the government, etc.

But whatever the causes of the property investment falls, there will always the back-up plans to anticipates it. And that’s what I am going to tell you in the next second.

The first you need to do is you have to evaluates the property you are planning to invest in. You have to know whether the property where you will put many of your money can be secured or not. If there will be possibility to secure the money through certain steps such as overhauling the financial management and the concept of the building, then you are good to go.

Next thing you need to pay attention is about the property price. It is recommended for you to sell the property directly when you think that will brings you more money. Don’t wait too long when the price is still on top except you are waiting the down of the market. Property price can even down to the unimaginable number that can makes us stress.

Get an experienced mentor! That will be the next important and useful tip for all the property investors. Just because you have somehow unlimited budget and also experiences, doesn’t means that you have to put an investment alone. Find someone that is more in knowledge and also experiences in property business than you are and start collaborating. By doing that, you can minimize the risks and also the fail. Then, hopefully there will be more successful chance coming along the way.

Last but not least, think about the investment diversification. Never put eggs in a basket, they will be broken. So with the business and investment, never get all of your money out just for one investment. See the other business opportunities as well!

That’s all I know about the things to keep in mind for anticipating the fail of property investment. If you finds this useful, kindly share the post to reminds the others. Thank you.

Misconceptions You Will Find about Real Estate Business

Deciding to start investing in real estate should come from thorough consideration. You need to know exactly what you are getting into before you regret and backtracking.

Some people believe that real estate is a great start for investing money. However, it is also common for new real estate investors to believe in misguided advice or misconceptions. It is true that there are myths even in real estate business which is a logical deal.

It is great to ask for advice for those successful investors in order to follow the step. However, it is better to follow the truth. The best step to take is to do your own due diligence and necessary research in order to make the right decision.

Real estate business misconceptions

Here are misconceptions you will find often about real estate business:

  1. First misconception is that investing in a bad neighborhood is a big no. However, this statement is not true at all. If you can manage to find a potential even in a bad neighborhood then you can earn your profit. Statistically, distressed home prices are 37% below median sales prices. Thee type of properties are typically 20% under the market value. Hence, you can get your chance to higher your profit. You can use flip or buy-and-hold strategy for these properties.
  2. The next misconception is that you need to be wealthy to invest in real estate. Being wealthy means you have easier access to start investing but it doesn’t determine whether or not you are going to be successful. Statistically, 23% of successful investors started investing in real estate with less than 10,000 dollars. There are various alternatives to start investing in real estate if you have limited funds. Thus, being wealthy is not a must or rule to be able to invest.
  3. Next common misconception in real estate business is that customer is always right. In business, customer should be treated as a king. However, it doesn’t make them always in the right side. Statistically, 37% of customers do little to no research before investing in a product or service. This results in 23% of them more likely to request a refund. Thus, the best step to handle customers is to give them the best service but still holding on the best principle. Remember that rude customers cost you faithful employees. When you blindly trust customers and give everything they want, your employees will be upset for not having your back especially when the customers become more aggressive.

Those are common misconceptions you will find about real estate business. In order to not be misguided, it is important to rely on facts. Besides, real estate business depends on numbers.

It means you can calculate your steps and consequences easily without believing in unnecessary myth. When it comes to asking for advice, it is still necessary so you can gain more knowledge.

However, it is better to take advice with a grain of salt. Therefore, you can pull your own trigger after doing your own due diligence and research.

Hammock Camping is Contributing to A Better Travel and Life

How many of the travel items and gears that you know are contributing to our travel and also life at the same time? I think that there is not many of them will be as useful as the hammock that most of us will be using it it for camping and also to bring while traveling to somewhere.

I do really appreciates for those who have been discovered and also improved the hammock camping until today. I know that it isn’t a miracle, but the way it works somehow the same for me.

Am I too excessive in saying it?

Hammock camping for better future

Here are what I have thoughts before. The first thing is, I am pretty sure that camping activity is always fun for everyone from child to the older people and is also the healthy thing you can get for yourself. Fun and healthy at the same time for everyone, sounds good for you? That’s how the hammock camping is offering us.

Look, even if you are walking 1 or 2 hours to your camping site, I think that a hammock won’t burden us much since it will only as heavy as around hundreds of grams. I think that there won’t any lightweight hanging bed as it is that I know so far. And yes, walking is a healthy activity as well.

But it won’t only be the reason why hammock camping is healthy for all of us. Hammock is well known for its fast setup as well. Later when you are jumping into it, many have been proven that they could falling asleep faster than before. Is it because of they have tired of walking a moment ago before reached the camping ground? It can be but hours later or even the next day—even if they don’t do anything that make them tired, they can still falling asleep faster.

Hanging bed is better for that. I don’t know whether it is because of the gravity or else, the important thing to be kept is, you are mostly will be experience the better sleep. It is because many have also proven that waking up in a hammock feels like the refreshing thing they rarely to have.

Hammock camping is also stimulates our brain to experience the deeper sleep stage. Do you have friends who are very difficult to wake up after sleeping? I am not sure either they are lazy or not, but it can be that they are in deeper sleep stage. They do really enjoy sleeping so that they will wake up refreshingly. I do really jealous to them for that.

But you and me can’t wait any longer for that sleep stage since the hammock now is easy to get and I think that it is also quiet affordable for many of us. I can’t really disassociates the term of hammock with the camping idea. It is really encourages us to be outside, somewhere you have not been visited for long. Or at least, if you have a backyard—you can start camping with a hammock right away.

There are still many things I want to inform you about the hammock camping, but hope what I have written above will open your mind that a it is helping us by contributing to our own better life, travel and even our own future. Share this article if you are agree with me!
