Happy new year! It's been a great year for me personally, and I want to thank all of my readers for supporting me and taking the time to use this blog as a resource for all of your real estate and investing needs.
To celebrate another year passed, I'm going to revisit some of my TOP BLOG POSTS OF 2014. So without further ado, here we go! (Just click the title links to view the original blog posts!)
In this post I take you through a step by step approach to staging your home to sell. These are tips that work, so if you are getting ready to sell your home, re-read or read it for the first time today!
I got a lot of great feedback from this post, especially since people seemed to enjoy the story of the super-awful, horribly smelly house that I took on as an investment. I also laid out my theory of investing that says every situation should be a win-win situation - meaning, the buyer, the seller, and the investor should all feel good about what went down.
This was one of my first blog posts, and I got a ton of great feedback about it, because the advice is universal whether you are selling yourself in Appleton Wisconsin or Appleton, Siberia. (I made that last part up, I'm pretty sure there is no Appleton Siberia, but you get the point!) Another post that can really help you if you are about to put your house on the market, so check it out!
People really enjoyed hearing about my "Three and Free" philosophy of home ownership. If you are thinking about buying a house anytime soon, check it out! The result will hopefully be that you end up owning your house free and clear. And who wouldn't want that!
Definitely my favorite! My trip to Guatemala was an amazing experience where I got to see firsthand how lucky we are here in the United States - and how even people with very little material wealth can still be happy, kind, and caring. I would recommend a visit to this beautiful country to everyone!
Thanks for reading my blog in 2014 and I hope to see you back here again every week in 2015!
