The Most Beautiful Locations to Have a Wedding on a Budget

The Most Beautiful Locations to Have a Wedding on a Budget

Planning a wedding is objectively one of the hardest events to plan. You don’t get many wedding days and this is a day that many have spent their entire lives dreaming about. There is so much to think about; how long does it take to plan a wedding? Is a summer wedding nicer than a winter wedding? Should I invite my friend who is also an ex? There are so many details to incorporate in the planning, from the all-important wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, the invite list, food for guests, rings, the venue, and so many more details. But one of the biggest problems people run into when wedding planning is how much it costs. All of these things can cost a lot, the average price of a wedding stands at £16,000. If you want a beautiful, romantic wedding day but not at that price we’ve found four amazing locations for you to have your dream wedding but at a much lower cost. This is usually a huge part of your budget so choosing one of these cheap locations will also help you to free up funds to make all the other aspects of your wedding just as beautiful.

A Church

If you’re having a religious ceremony for your wedding day then a church is the perfect place for you. A church wedding costs on average £500, this includes the use of the church, your marriage certificate, and a priest/vicar to officiate the wedding. Churches tend to be particularly large buildings which means you will definitely have space to invite all your family and friends to share in your special day. Churches are very grand with beautifully decorated interior including magnificent stained-glass windows. Many churches have large grounds which are the perfect place to take a stroll as newly-weds and get some amazing wedding photos. One thing to bear in mind if you think a church is the right place for you is in some cases you need to have a previous connection to the church to be allowed to marry there. This could be a bonus as if you have your wedding at a local church your guests are unlikely to have any problems getting there.

A Park

This is a great option for any nature lovers. Where better to spend your day than outdoors surrounded by nature? This is another low budget option as you don’t have to pay to use the park. You will need to get a registrar to complete the ceremony and any other legal involvements related to the wedding, this should cost around £400. Many parks also have ponds or lakes which give the perfect backshot for your romantic wedding pictures, a wedding in a park would definitely be a day to remember. One thing to remember is not all parks are licensed to hold wedding ceremonies so check with your local authorities first.

A Barn

Getting married at a barn is great for anyone creative, it gives you complete control over how you want your wedding ceremony to look. This is the opportunity to make your wedding extremely unique and beautiful. If you want to decorate with fairy lights or lanterns or bunting you can, every decision is completely yours. To hire a barn for a wedding usually costs around £1000, most venues also offer catering packages with decent discounts which help to keep the costs down. As barns are right in the middle of the countryside it’s the perfect surroundings, you and your partner will feel like the only people in the world in that magical location.

Rooftop Bar

A rooftop bar would be a stunning place to tie the knot. Having a wedding so high up would provide you with amazing views of your favorite city, plenty of space available to invite as many guests as you want, and a massive selection of fancy drinks for you and your guests. To hire a rooftop bar, it could actually be free as they’ll provide food and drinks at a good price instead. You would feel a million miles away from anything else and it would be the perfect backdrop for some artsy wedding photos.

Is This the Most Charming BnB in the World?

Is This the Most Charming BnB in the World?

Arguably one of the worst aspects of taking a cross country trip is having to find somewhere to stay, this is especially the case if you are taking a trip to DC. DC has a number of residential options for anyone that is choosing to take a trip to the country’s capital, however, it can be difficult to sift through the long lists of pricey hotels and inaccurately advertised Airbnb’s.

If you are someone that wants to make your trip special by choosing an interesting BnB or hotel, you will be faced with a new list of difficulties. It can be difficult to pick out a gem among all of the options and more often than not, the BnBs that advertise themselves to be a step above the rest never usually are.

Though obviously not everyone has the same expectations when it comes to finding a good BnB, we think that we have found the perfect BnB to quench that thirst for an interesting trip.

 

Adam’s Inn

Though you may not have heard about it, Adam’s Inn has been operating in the heart of DC for the last 40 years and has gained a positive reputation among locals and visitors alike.

There is nothing more charming than the appeal of antique exterior decor, which oozes elegance along with that comforting feeling of being at home. The quaint reception area of the BnB automatically tells you a great deal about what you can expect from the rest of your stay. It really does feel like a second home, with friendly staff and rustic decor. You get that sense of ease that is often missed when staying at an uncomfortable and more expensive hotel, which automatically starts your trip on a great foot.

 

The decor

Walking into the Adam’s Inn feels much like walking into a time machine. This BnB has been operating for four decades and very little has changed in terms of decor within this time. The hotel is rich in solid wood upholstery which really adds a certain charm that harkens back to the classic American look.

For some people, this classic look may be off-putting as it suggests that all of the BnB’s amenities may be dated. However, this really isn’t the case as the BnB still offers all that you would expect in a modern hotel. There is a flat-screen TV in every bedroom which means when you get home from your busy day of tourism, you’ll have the opportunity to lie back, relax and watch some of your favorite shows.  There is also free access to the internet within the BnB, which is a really convenient feature. This is especially the case if you are visiting from another country and don’t want to foot the bill of expensive data charges.

A really clever characteristic of the Adam’s Inn is maintaining the dated look of an American BnB, while also applying all the modern comforts that you could desire. An example of this being put into practice is through the beds in the BnB. The beds use the original frames in order to maintain a vintage appearance, however, they have replaced older mattresses with some of the best memory foam mattresses that are available on the market.

 

Location

In such a big place like DC, location is everything. Local estate agents such as the house guys dc often talk about just how vital being situated in the right location is when staying or living in DC and Adam’s inn are able to boast a fantastic location without an extortionate price tag.

Adam’s inn is located next to everything you would need to see when in DC. One of their main attraction points is that the BnB is located within a close range of local zoos, which makes it the perfect location for any animal lovers.

If you are of drinking age you may be excited to know that the BnB is also in a prime nightlife location. There are dozens of bars and clubs located within a couple of miles of the hotel, so if you are someone that wants to see what the DC nightlife has to offer, then this BnB may be your best bet.

How to Screen and Select the Right Property Manager For Your Properties

How to Screen and Select the Right Property Manager For Your Properties

With property management becoming a very popular means for making money, there has been a huge increase in the demand for property management roles that can help you maintain your properties and manage your tenants. However, who you hire to be your manager is a very important decision to make especially if you plan on taking a step back in terms of your own involvement. The great thing about owning property is that after a while you are able to sit back and delegate responsibility to another person, ensuring you hire someone trustworthy and capable of running things to the best of their ability is paramount to your success and profit.

 

Interview / Application Process

My advice would be to start with an initial interview where you can screen potential candidates and have some face to face interaction where you can gauge whether or not they would be a good fit for a property management role. Things to look out for would be confidence, how the person interacts with others and it may even be a good idea to ask about any property management ideas they may have. Prior to an interview I would advertise the position locally and request an application, this allows you to get background information about your prospective manager and gives them the opportunity to show off any qualifications or experience they may have.

This is a great way to screen your property manager as you have the opportunity to find out about their personality traits, experience in management, and whether they would be a good fit for you and your tenants. Another thing to bear in mind would be to avoid focussing on previous experience too much because although it is important, there are other traits that can contribute to someone being more suitable for the job.

 

Deciding on the Jobs Roles

Within the role of manager, there will be many responsibilities that your candidates will have to be aware of before their employment, I would recommend that you make a note of the most significant tasks your manager will be expected to do to ensure you are as clear as possible of the expectations of the job. A property manager will be expected to do a number of things, and because it is such a demanding role you should make sure your candidate knows exactly what is going to be expected of them before you decide to give them the position. A property managers role can entail a number of things including:

 

Managing Finances

One of the most important tasks your property manager will have to be particularly efficient with would have been the management of your finances including ensuring everyone’s rent is paid on time and correctly. As well as organizing rent your manager will be responsible for the costs of running your properties and ensuring bills, repairs, and other payments are all paid and monitored to ensure they are right. Financial skills would be a very valuable aspect to have within your property manager but, in cases where this isn’t possible or if you had a candidate who was promising but lacked the financial skills you may have to think about finding the best wealth management company, in order to ensure your finances are effectively managed.

 

Communicating with tenants

As previously mentioned, if you are somebody who is planning on taking a step back from managing your property, your manager will become a direct communication link between owner and Tennant. This means your manager will definitely need to be able to communicate effectively and professionally to make sure you have the best relationship with your tenants. The interview process would be a great place to check on how your candidates interact with others and provide the opportunity to test what their responses would be in certain situations. If your tenant has an issue with the property your manager will need to be able to provide a satisfying solution as quickly as possible, this occurrence can be very stressful so you are going to want to hire someone who can keep a level head and deal with issues effectively.

 

Organization Responsibilities

Another responsibility your property manager will need to have is being extremely organized, especially if you are the landlord for multiple properties it is vital any documentation is kept safe and separate from your other houses. In the event that this documentation is required, there is nothing worse and nothing more unprofessional than struggling to find what you need in terms of the necessary documentation.

 

Testing in the field

Finally, one of the best ways to test if a person is right for the role of your property manager would be to offer them a trial period in the job role. By offering your candidates the opportunity to prove themselves in a real-life situation gives you the best idea as to how they would react if they were successful. I would start small with jobs like organizing your property documents, speaking with tenants, or showing people around a property so they can show some if they have some of the fundamental skills needed for the position.

This is one of the best screening methods as you will very quickly and very easily be able to see how well they would do, I would look out for traits like confidence, a positive attitude, and enthusiasm and hopefully, you will be able to find the very best property manager for you.

Make Sure to Do Your Research

Selling your home can be a daunting experience, especially if it’s your first time.

But one of the main things you need to do if you’re hoping to make some money back on selling your home is to do your research. There are a number of steps involved to ensure the selling of your house runs as smoothly as possible.

Don’t Put All of Your Eggs in One Basket

One of the most important things you’re going to need to remember is that you’re going to need a new house to move into once your home is finally sold. In all the hustle and bustle and excitement of selling your home, you’d be surprised how many people actually forget to look for a new home. Whilst it can often take a lot of time for houses to be sold, you may actually find that once a buyer is interested, the property may be swept up quicker than you imagined. You don’t want to be left temporarily homeless and only be searching for your new dream home on the side of the street after handing off the keys to the new owner. Be sure to begin researching for your next home long before you decide on putting your house on the market.

 

Don’t get complacent when you decide on a home as well, as you’ll soon find out, things move quickly in the property market, so it’s probably wise to have a long line of contingency plans in case your dream home gets snatched up before your house is sold. As long as you keep on top of your research you’ll be sure to find the perfect home for you to move into once you sell your house. Luckily, if you’re not sure where to search, there are any number of property sites online that are specifically tailored to Australia. There are always plenty of like-minded people looking to sell their homes, so you shouldn’t have to worry about not finding a place. It may also be worth getting in contact with the sellers and explaining the situation, they may be willing to hold the house for you if you’re almost finished selling your own house.

Why a Perfect Kitchen is Key to Selling your Home

Why a Perfect Kitchen is Key to Selling your Home

The saying goes that Real estate is all about Location. And that saying is absolutely right. If you are trying to sell a property next to a sewage treatment plant, you will run into some issues. On the flip-side, selling a lovely sea-front property is easy.

But location isn’t everything. There is a lot to be said for the finer details of the interior of a house. Good spacing, well-maintained fixtures, and prevention of mold or damp. All of these things can help you sell your home. But there is one area that we think is paramount in the selling process. The Kitchen!

 

The Kitchen Revoltuion

The kitchen has always been one of the most important rooms in any home. A family meal is an experience that builds bonds and allows you to relax after a stressful day. But the magic of it all takes place in the kitchen. In rougher times, people didn’t mind what their kitchen looked like, as long as it served its purpose efficiently and was easy to keep clean.

But we are in an age of luxury now. People can afford to be more extravagant with both their cooking and their decoration, and this is why a perfect kitchen is key to selling any property.

Cooking has become much more of a draw for both social media and mainstream entertainment. Cooking shows abound and people are constantly posting their own cooking blogs and Instagramming their food. So a nice kitchen works as a backdrop to all this.

The kitchen has become one of the big social hubs of any house. So a kitchen with a spacious, elegant design that can sit quite a few people is always going to be a draw. People want the cooking process to be a full social experience, with everyone in the family taking part

 

The Atmosphere

The layout and design of a room have been proven to directly influence the mood someone is in. If you are stood in a bright, spacious area, you are going to feel relaxed. While a dark, grim, and cramped space will make you feel uncomfortable. This idea is important when selling your home. You want a space that feels inviting and nice. When potential buyers tour the home, these mood shifts will unconsciously affect their decision whether to buy your home or not.

Your real estate agent will have an easier time making the sale if space is well kept and nicely decorated. To that end, it could be worth investing a bit of money upgrading your kitchen equipment temporarily to make the whole room stand out. There are some kitchen product reviews at foodplusice that will help you find the best tech to boost the atmosphere of your kitchen.

 

Make it Stand Out

When people buy a new home, they look at a lot of different locations. And in all that, they can often forget the small details of certain houses. So you want to make sure your kitchen stands out. You want potential buyers to think of your house while they are viewing another.

If you can do this, your home is as good as sold. To this end, you could consider investing in some more outlandish decorations or make some subtle changes. Maybe a special type of oven or some fancy art to really draw the eye of potential buyers.

Selling your home is tough. It can take a long time to shift a property, especially in this economic climate. But if you put in the effort and keep the house looking great, you’ll sell it without a doubt!

The Major Sets of Differences Between Property Management and Real Estate

The Major Sets of Differences Between Property Management and Real Estate

Property Management and Real Estate are two separate industries that are often summoned up as one. People who are unaware of the differences go ahead to classify the same as one based on certain forms of overlapping. Due to this mix, the truth of the matter will be hidden, i.e. the differences. So to put an end to these misconceptions, we are here to talk about the significant differences that underlie both these industries. Hence, go ahead and keep reading to know more.

1. The Process

When it comes to the process or the entire mode of functionally, the real estate industry goes ahead to deal with listings and selling of properties. This particular task is done on behalf of the owner as a move to facilitate the entire process and make things head in the right direction. On the other hand, property management deals with the management aspects of the property. For example, if there are repairs, tenant issues and other maintenance problems, then the management will enter the picture in order to clear things out. This is also done on behalf of the owner.

2. The Relationship

The kind of relationship that you share with a real estate agent and a property manager tends to differ for a whole bunch of reasons. Real estate agents are here to facilitate the process, and anything above the same will not fall under their list. As a result, the relationship that you share with a real estate agent will be transactional, and once the purchase is done, the deal will be completed. But the process or the relationship with a property manager begins soon after purchasing a particular property.

Yes, that’s right. The duration of the same is longer, and they extend their support to the overall development of your property. From looking into small details, they go further into managing massive forms of repairs that need the touch of a professional. As a result, this long term relationship is contractual, and a percentage of the rent is paid to the property manager.

3. The Industry

In terms of business, both these industries come ahead to quote different terms as their transactions are also quite different. The property management industry is relatively vibrant and carries on the process without facing constant changes like the real estate industry. While the value of a property either remains the same or goes up, the real estate industry at times enters a slump. Due to that, both these institutes offer different sets of opportunities, in case you’re looking to start a career. So analyse both these differences and utilise the knowledge for all the right reasons.
