How far behind?

How far behind?
Should you give up?

There are people who have read far more books than you have, and you will certainly never catch up.

Your website began with lousy traffic stats, in fact, they all do. Should you even bother?

The course you’re in–you’re a few lessons behind the leaders. Time to call it quits?

Quitting merely because you’re behind is a trap, a form of hiding that feels safe, but isn’t. The math is simple: whatever you switch to because you quit is another place you’re going to be behind as well.

It’s not a race, it’s a journey. And the team that scores first doesn’t always win.

It may be the time to refinance your home loan

Many people ask us if they should refinance or if this is a good time to do so.

In reality, you may be able to lower your monthly mortgage payments and save tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan by refinancing your mortgage.

It’s time for YOU to refinance if…

1. You have a better credit score than you had when you first bought your home.
2. Your home value increased.
3. You want to get some cash out to make home improvements.
4. You would like to consolidate loans and payoff high interest debts.
5. You need to change from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate loan.
6. Or, if you want to change the term of the loan from 30 to 15 years.

If you can save money, why not? Check the possibilities, talk to us.

What are the Positives & Negatives of Investing in Real Estate? - Crowdfund Insider

What are the Positives & Negatives of Investing in Real Estate?

Real estate investor and philanthropist Louis Glickman is famously known for saying “the best investment on earth is earth.” As a man who made his fortune in real estate, it’s safe to assume that he knew what he was talking about. But, does his wisdom carry over to the general population? Let’s take a look at some of the positives and negatives of investing in real estate, and then you can decide for yourself.

POSITIVE – Real estate is a tangible asset

You can touch and see your investment. It’s a physical property, not a display on a computer screen or on a TV-news ticker as with stock market investments. If you’re a hands-on type of person, you’ll likely feel much more in control when investing in real estate.

NEGATIVE – Homes can be a hassle

Your real estate investment will likely require emergency repairs, as well as regular maintenance and upkeep. This can require some serious time investment, depending on the property, as well as additional financial investment, especially if you rely on subcontractors to handle the work for you.

Money International Global CurrencyPOSITIVE – Source of steady income

Keeping your real estate investment properties filled with good tenants guarantees a steady and consistent monthly income. Those regular checks can be a real boost.

NEGATIVE – Not a liquid asset

Money kept in a back can be withdrawn at any time. The stock market is a quick, buy-and-sell environment. Real estate investing, however, is a very time-intensive process. Even if you are lucky enough to find a buyer for a home you’re planning to flip on the same day you purchase, you’ll have to first go through the entire paperwork process, which frequently takes several weeks. In order to get cash out of your investment property, you’ll need steady renters, or you’ll need to borrow against the equity.

POSITIVE – True value, regardless of economic climate

There is always value in real estate. It fulfills a basic need. Even when the economy is at its lowest of lows, people will always need a place to life. It is certainly possible to lose money in real estate, but any property that you own free and clear is an asset with true value.

NEGATIVE – Your liabilities are high

When you own stock in a company, you are not directly liable for any illegal or underhanded business that company may conduct. But when you own real estate, you are liable for the actions of your tenants, regardless of how they occur. If someone slips and falls on the steps of your investment home, you are the one who will be sued. Additionally, you, as the owner, bear the burden of maintaining proper insurance for the property. As real estate investing involves a hard asset,the risk profile is an inherently different form of investment than early stage investing.

Seminoles plan new Tampa hotel tower with gambling expansion

TAMPA — The Seminole Tribe would launch a $1.8 billion expansion of its Seminole Hard Rock casino complexes in Tampa and Hollywood if state lawmakers approve a gambling deal that allows the tribe to offer more types of games, tribal leaders said Monday.

The project would include a second hotel tower at the Tampa site at Interstate 4 and Orient Road, adding more than 500 guest rooms and a new music venue. The Hollywood site would get a new 36-story hotel shaped like a giant guitar.
