While some countries have experienced downturns in real estate returns due to certain economic problems, some continue to enjoy greener incentives in the industry.

MAKE DOCUMENTATION A PRIORITY

Reasons You Should Invest In a New Home

You will make a great sense of belonging in the community

Once you own a home, you feel more attached to the society you live in. You will be more interested in what goes on around the city, the roads, schools and local market. Some people even get involved in local politics, and it is unlikely to see a tenant do that. You will be participating in other community activities as suggested by about.com and settlement.org

Welcome August

We welcome you to this beautiful month of August 2017. The sayings that ‘Time waits for no one’ and that ‘Time flies’ seem to be statements of fact. Whether we do (take action) or we don’t (don’t take action), time will continue to tick. Everyone has got the same amount of time, what we do with it determines what we get out of it, that reminds me of the first lesson I learnt in ‘Micro-Computing’ years ago: Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO). That is exactly how life is, what we sow is proportional to what we reap. We must also be mindful that we all have limited number of years to live and accomplish our goals and purpose in life, and we can only achieve these within our allotted time on this planet called earth. No wonder William Shakespeare said that, ‘All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages’; and William James, an American Psychologist and Philosopher once said that, ‘The value of life is computed, not by its duration, but by its donation’. No one is eternal, even Methuselah (the oldest man that ever lived) died eventually. May God teach us to number our days that we may apply our heart to wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
