Renovating an Apartment Building: Tips

I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so when I saw a local apartment building up for sale at a great price, I decided make the investment. I am a manager by day, so I thought I was ready to be a great landlord. After I had trouble attracting new tenants, I decided to try investing in a few upgrades to see if I could attract more tenants with the added features. I hired a local contractor to work on my first project, which was a fitness room. I remembered that I always looked for buildings with them when I rented apartments! I then had some work done on the grounds and in the apartments themselves. The building is completely full now, so I realized it was a good investment. I decided to start a blog to share my renovating and construction tips with anyone who needs them!

How To Establish Family Preparedness

You certainly don't have to be a fanatic to understand that it's wise to be prepared for whatever hardships may come your way. By following these steps, you can be sure that your family will be well taken care of, in the event of any kind of physical crisis.

The Essentials - Think of those things you can't live without, and focus on them.

  • Food - You don't have to go broke buying everything at once. Start out by making a list of things your family already eats. Each time you go to the store, buy an extra can of soup, peanut butter, or any of the other things on your list. One thing that is excellent to store is ramen. Not only is it extremely inexpensive, but you can crumble the ramen noodles into almost anything to extend it. Rotate your food by using what you buy and then replenishing it along the way.
  • Water - There are a lot of ways you can store water. Of course, you can buy it in gallon containers right at the grocery store, or you can purchase stackable containers and fill your own. Many people use bleach to keep water pure, but Calcium Hypochlorite, also known as "pool shock," is even better. Having a reverse osmosis device is also very helpful.
  • Medicine - Again, think about what you already use. If you take prescription medications, consider asking your doctor for a three-month supply prescription. A large first aid kit for the family to use is a good idea, too. In fact, that's a good Christmas present for you to give the entire family, especially if you add some treats to the gift bag.
  • Money - Only you can decide how much money to have in your home. It is best to have it in one-dollar and five-dollar bills. Be sure to have coins on hand, too.

Secure Your Home - Consider getting a locksmith (such as Anderson Lock & Safe, LLC) to come to your home to assess what you need to make your house truly safe. Besides recommending excellent locks for the doors, he can also provide safes that are fireproof and waterproof for important documents and other valuables that would be very difficult to replace. Do you own firearms? A locksmith will also show you the best safes or cabinets that will secure anything that could be potentially dangerous, if they end up in the wrong hands.

Congratulations on planning ahead for your family's well being.
