Q & A With Owners Sold The Gem Real Estate Within A Great Community

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Strategist

This property got sold recently because of the extraordinaire approach that was implemented by the owners. Read the details below…

The personalized realistic strategy and interaction with real people/buyers created an invaluable dimension of selling this real estate that is rare, unique, with quality improvements through out the home, highlighted features that are incomparable to multitudes of real estates in the area and sustained its Ranch-single-level style home within a community among multi-level homes.

Sadly, the traditional, impersonal and mechanical approach of “used houses salesmen” aka real estate agents did not provide quality results within a given time frame.

Realistic Perspectives and Tips:

Home Owners who would like to sell their homes, make sure you are selling quality that is uniquely presented. The worst that will happen is not having a professional that understands the real features of your home that will separate from the rest of many real estates for sale.

Challenge your real estate agent to work hard for their commissions, interview prospective agents whom you think can represent you. Pick someone who has the grasp of what you like and end result ‘price correctly’. That is the bottom line.

Take the opportunity of talking to your prospective buyers. An interaction with them will facilitate better sale of the property. Majority of agents do not like this approach because they did not learn it from their schooling. It is an outside of their comfort zone.

 

 

“You Can Actually Make A Choice” – Prof Danny Dorling

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Professor Danny Dorling said it plain and simple. There is freedom of choice when not in fear and frightened. Having a choice is a realistic value in every human being. However, there are many who don’t have that choice because of inability to save resources that they need.

What this means to you?

  • Self assessing your abilities to gain independence that will give you the choice you wanted in life

  • Make priorities about what makes sense in spending your earning and save, save, save some or most of your income. Your future will depend on that success and choice. Having adequate savings will provide you that choice to enjoy living life independently

  • Refrain from being ‘subservient sucker’ to capitalism or being an ‘economic slave’ – be yourself, practical, use commons sense, exercise independent thinking that will give you that ‘real choice’

Real Estate: Advantages of a “Live-in Ready Home” and the Amenities of Nature Plus Convenience …

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Strategist

Why should I look for quality home when buying a residence? For sure, the first consideration is the peace of mind and not much work to be done upon arrival of settling-in.  Of course, there is an argument of buying a newly built house in a new development or buying a well maintained home that already exist in a desirable neighborhood that is well equipped; within the beautiful environment, spectacular views, neighborhood, residents, natural and shopping amenities.

Personal preferences exist regardless of motivation. However, when one make a decision for a long term abode that is influenced with personal convenience and circumstances. Big consideration is location, location, location. These three words’ #realestate motto will come with a $Price Tag; oftentimes not accessible to everyone. There are opportunities for everyone regardless of likes and dislikes.

This home is one of its rarity, plus it provides you a preview of how well-maintained this home through the Pre-inspection Report that was made available through their Selling Agent in MLS Listing #1143965. Private viewing can be arranged through your Real Estate Broker.

Why Consider the Advantages? Because of serenity and balanced living  …

You are not only buying a house, you are buying a home where you can relax, enjoy your moments with all the amenities within and its surroundings. Accessibility to various metropolis, cultural immersions, public and private infrastructures.

When you like sunsets without going away from home, convenient living in this home offers you those phenomenal sunsets from Spring Season to Winter Season through picture windows in the house. Like the following photos; don’t you feel like experiencing all of these? According to the current home owners, each day has a new panorama to appreciate over cocktails, coffee or tea.

You can also create your own “from garden to table experience” by building your own organic vegetable or produce garden within your own backyard. The current owners of this ‘rarely available single level home’ have enjoyed their own organically sustained garden over the years with the following fruits and vegetables;

The new owner of this home will enjoy numerous bearing fruit berries, seasonal plants and flowers, plus the serene surroundings that are available day-in and day-out or one can enjoy the private sanctuary that will be waiting for them.

 

When you enjoy private living with natural amenities, having conversations with and entertaining friends, this place is made for your lifestyle.

Actively Looking for a New Home? One Tip that experienced home buyers share is to request a Pre-inspection Report through your professional representative and discuss its details so that you are educated on the advantages of owning a well maintained home or embracing lots of unwanted home projects in addition to your real estate purchase cost. My personal experience was understanding the Pre-inspection Report and made the best decision.

Updates: Germany’s President Signed “Marriage for All” Legalized #SameSexMarriage “It’s not about special rights but about equal rights” #MarriageEquality #LGBTQ+

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Updates: As of July 21, 2017 – Germany’s Marriage Equality has been signed into law by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier which will take effect in October 1, 2017. Please click on the image below for more details of the story. (credit source: dw.com)

Indeed, on June 30, 2017, Germany’s Bundestag (Parliament) voted for the legalization of #SameSexMarriage across Germany.

Our Congratulations to the LGBTQ+ community across Germany. There is nothing more essential that to get recognized with equal marriage to those of the heterosexuals. More Power across the globe for #MarriageEquality.

“It is very positive for the self-esteem of gays and lesbians; it’s very important for people coming out, knowing that they have this equality,; and it sends clear message to any homophobic refugees coming to Germany; We have equality here.” – said Arndt Bächler, Counselor and Addiction Therapist, Berlin’s Gay Counselling Center.

“The law was not about ‘special rights for anyone but about equal rights’; the law would play significant role in combating discrimination, by helping make same-sex relationships a social norm in Germany, as they have been as many countries across Europe.  Last week, the German Parliament voted to void the convictions of 50,000 men punished under anti-gay law repealed in 1994.

I am certain that just a few years from now, as a society we will look back on this decision on Marriage Equality, and ask ourselves, “Why on earth did it take us so long?” – said, Christine Lüders, Director of Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency (source credit: NYTimes)

Who Says Drinking Coffee Is Unhealthy “Do you drink coffee?”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“I like my two cups of coffee everyday before starting my day. Then another cup of coffee during afternoon snacks or after dinner. With that three cups a day, I am in alignment with the recently and newly published research at the Annals of Internal Medicine.  Where it said; 3 cups of drinking coffee daily is beneficial to the body.”

Advantages of drinking coffee:

Joe Tidy, a Sky News Correspondent wrote;  “Men who downed at least three cups of coffee a day were 18% less likely to die from any cause than non-coffee drinkers. Women drinking the same amount benefited less, but still experienced an 8% reduction in mortality over the period measured.” (credit source: news.sky.com)

In the same article it says; “the researchers found that the group with the highest consumption of coffee had a lower risk for all-causes of death, compared to those who did not drink coffee.”

Research Conclusion:

“Coffee drinking was associated with reduced risk for death from various causes. This relationship did not vary by country”. (source credit: Annals of Internal Medicine)

Just Wondering What Others’ Experiences When They Moved With Their Kitty-cat? “Mandy and I on the Move”

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

I come across of the post about Mandy and I on the Move, so I thought I will ask some questions from others who may have experienced relocating with their lovely cat/s.

We’ve moved to a new location. Moving in day was a bit stressful for Mandy since I was everywhere so she found a place to sleep and escape the commotion on the upper closet shelf in the bedroom. The full moon lit the night so brightly and the rainbow aura around the moon was irresistible. […]

Germany On a Path to Marriage Equality #SameSexMarriage

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

In a recent development, Germany is on its path for Marriage Equality.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel encouraged the Bundestag Members to weigh-in on “question for conscience”.  Her Parliamentary Leader Volker Kauder asked CDU’s members of the Bundestag to show for the vote. CDU (Christian Democratic Union of Germany) is Angela Merkel’s political party. The Social Democrats, Merkel’s  grand coalition partner are expected to table the voting sooner than September 24, 2017. (credit source: dw.com)

Speculations indicate that the vote may pass as majority of the Germans do not opposed to SameSex Marriage according to a study that was released  early this year by Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency. Perhaps in the coming days or weeks Germany’s Marriage Equality will become a reality.

More power to the #LGBTQ community of Germany. #lovewins #loveislove #MarriageEquality

This year the US #LoveWins celebrates its second year anniversary of Marriage Equality;

It is Not an Employer’s or Government’s Choice that You Retire at 65: “It Is My Individual Choice”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

You can retire at any time you like provided you have the means.

In today’s generation,  we have many ‘Entrepreneurs’ who have cracked the ceiling by pursuing faster lanes for retirement-ability than working for whole life, plus they still contribute to the ‘Social Security Program’. On the other hand, there are many hardworking individuals who built their resources successfully. However, many others are worried that they may not be able to retire at appropriate age. At the same time those that are working and will be working must participate in the Social Security Program.

“Who started the idea that one has to retire at 65 or 67 years of age?

This is a concept that was derived from Social Security Law, was created in 1935 that aimed to provide old age, survivors, and disability insurance benefits to workers and their families. When the worker reached 65 years of age, they can begin accessing the so called ‘Social Security Program Benefits’ that they are entitled with.  One must have been contributing certain percent of income since the individual started working, provided such employer has legitimately guiding that individual to pay their social security contribution.

Why not challenge yourself to retire sooner at the age of 55 and then enjoy living with your resources. This is doable Mr. Terrenal said; provided that you will keep self-discipline, self-drive and self-determination in achieving that personal goal. 

Retiring from the environment of work is determined by us and not by the employer or the government. Many have achieved that goal, why can’t you.

“About Everyday Life and About All of Us” Said #JeremyCorbyn

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN 

More power to the Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of Labour Party in the United Kingdom. Today, he was welcomed at the Glastonbury Festival 2017 with a ‘thunderous applause’ once he arrived at the event (please see image below).

The Guardian reported that “Tens of thousands gathered to watch Corbyn in mid-afternoon – a crowd of a size typically reserved for Glastonbury headliners. Almost all those present were fans, many wearing T-shirts bearing his face or name, and there were dozens of banners of appreciation.” (creditsource: theguardian)

Jeremy Corbyn gained respect and admiration among UK Citizens because of his character, competency, humility and values as an individual. Many Britons across Europe call him “relatable person who is leading the entire nation and his party”. Everyday, the Labour Party is increasing their membership and people across UK likes him to take over the Premiership of the nation. At any time in the future there is a great possibility that another general election will be held in the UK. And the new Prime Minister will be Jeremy Corbyn of Labour Party.

Theresa May’s administration is now very wobbly and weak. Almost daily or weekly, that there were scandals and court decisions that were written against her. She lost her mandate based from the result of the Snap Election last that she called two weeks ago. By losing the majority she was forced to make a coalition with the DUP of Ireland in order to form a majority government. In the past, the DUP party demonstrated hate and inequality particularly to the LGBTI+ community.  (creditsources: theguardian  and HuffingtonPostUK)

In the recent Opening of Parliament, the world was surprised when the Queen arrived at the Parliament by her car not her Queen’s carriage and was wearing a day dress instead of her Queen’s regalias.  According to theCanary, a similar event took place in the past during the term of Conservative leader Edward Heath. Soon after, Mr. Heath resigned and he was a history. Speculatively, a similar fashion may take place for Ms. May and Jeremy Corbyn will form a minority government. (creditsource: theCanary)
