What You Can Expect From a Cleaning Company

A lot of people assume there is no reason to hire a cleaning company Olney MD. After all, cleaning on your own is more affordable. Of course, that doesn’t factor in the time it takes or the stress it sometimes creates. If you think there is no reason to hire a professional cleaning company, think again. They do a lot more than dusting and vacuuming!

Commercial Cleaning

Cleaning companies aren’t just for homeowners. They are also a great resource for business owners. Commercial cleaning services include office buildings, apartment complexes and much more. They are especially helpful for people who own small businesses that only need cleaning on occasion and not every day.

Laundry Services

Some cleaning companies offer specific laundry packages for residential and commercial customers alike. If you have a big family but hate doing laundry, or if you own a bed and breakfast or another type of business that uses linens every day, cleaning professionals will wash, dry, iron and fold these items for you at an affordable price.

Move-In and Move-Out Cleaning

Whether you are moving out of a property you rented or you own a property that someone is leaving, you’ll like need to do some cleaning. Most leases require the renter to leave the rental at least as clean as it was when they moved in. If you don’t want to lose your deposit money, or if you’re a landlord who doesn’t want to do the legwork of cleaning after an unruly tenant, a cleaning company will often provide these services. The cleaners will take care of every nook and cranny, including vacuuming, removing cobwebs, and washing walls and windows, to ensure it’s in tip-top shape for the next renter.

When hiring a cleaning company, ensure you find one that is licensed, insured, and bonded. This protects you and your property while you have someone else working in your home or office building.

Tips for Investing in Your First Gas Station

Starting a small business means setting out on a career path that might not always bring adventure, but that will always bring you in touch with new ways of doing things. The life and income structure of an entrepreneur is not like that of someone who works for a wage for an employer. Factors like what industry you go into can have a huge effect on your cash flow cycle, in addition to the effect your choice of payment processors and accounting methods winds up having. When that business is a gas station, you’ve got a chance to reach a stable operating business volume relatively quickly, but you need to know how to get the best return on your money.

Purchase an Operation or Build a New Station?

Gas stations are not like other business facilities. You can’t just remodel a commercial property that was originally used for another purpose and make it into one, it has to be built to exacting EPA standards and local regulations. That’s why you need to either budget for the purchase of an already profitable operation, which means dipping deeper to invest in a company that is already making a profit, or you have to consider buying the station but not the business. In that case, your choices are mostly old gas stations, many of which need to be updated before being reopened under modern safety standards.

It might seem like it would be less trouble to build one from scratch, and in fact it often is. Whether you wind up with a totally new construction or not, gas station builders will be able to help you make sure you have all the necessary property features to meet local and federal safety guidelines, a vital step to opening as a fuel provider.

From property seekers to real estate professionals, Lamudi’s Affordable Housing Fair was a roaring success. It united all groups from the real estate industry to an event filled with knowledge and opportunity for all.

After a successful event at Trinoma, Lamudi continued its Housing Fair series and brought it to Glorietta with a two-day Affordable Housing Fair, from July 20 to 21, 2019.

The event, now in its third year, was supported by several exhibitors, showcasing their offers and properties. The exhibitors were the following:

  • Aspire by Filinvest
  • Ayala Residential Group
  • Calmar Land Development Corporation
  • Camella Homes
  • CDC Holdings, Inc.
  • Empire East
  • Food Panda
  • Futura Homes by Filinvest
  • Grand Monaco
  • Hausland Development Corporation
  • Megaworld Prime RFO
  • Pag-IBIG Fund
  • PA Properties
  • Phinma Properties
  • Politan- Agpasa Engineering and Architectural Design
  • RCD Land
  • UnionBank Credit Cards
  • United Coconut Planters Bank

The emphasis of the event was getting affordable housing for property seekers, hence the title of the fair, which is the Affordable Housing Fair. Affordability in the real estate industry is what a lot of keynote speakers and exhibitors focused on in the event.

The fair had all sorts of seminars relevant to the theme presented by esteemed speakers from a variety of places. Aside from workshops, there were plenty of booths, training, as well as an escape room called “Unlock Your Dream Home” for attendees to try.

Home-Buying Seminar for Aspiring New Homeowners

Lamudi Affordable Housing Fair held a free home-buying seminar for aspiring new homeowners. The lesson covers all the basics that they need to know before or during the home-buying process.

This talk was one that aspiring homeowners didn’t want to miss.

On that note, Pag-IBIG Fund representatives were also present to give a talk on their End-User Housing or Financing Program, which is useful for new or aspiring homeowners.

Pag-IBIG Fund End-User Housing Program Talk

The End-User Home Financing Program by Pag-IBIG Fund aims to help aspiring homeowners finance their new home. The loan can reach up to about six million Philippines Peso, depending on a couple of factors like desired loan amount, actual need, loan entitlement, and more.

The Financing Program doesn’t only cover new homeowners. There are plenty of other eligible loan purposes that the financing program can help interested loan applicants. For example, you can use it to refinance an existing house loan or for financing home improvement projects.

If you’re interested in applying for Pag-IBIG Fund’s financing program, then you can go to their website and log on to get an appointment set for you.

Property Auctions

Given the fact that it is an Affordable Housing Fair, there were also auctions held in the fair that put up properties in foreclosure for bidding. It’s a cost-effective way of purchasing a property. The exhibitors listed above showed their offers to interested buyers, so there were plenty of options and choices available.

Additionally, property seekers had plenty of freebies as well as discounts on properties on the Affordable Housing Fair.

Networking Venue for Real Estate Professionals

Buyers aren’t the only ones who found a good time with the Lamudi Housing Fair. Real estate professionals had the opportunity to see industry leaders in the fair. They also received free lessons on online marketing with the use of Lamudi.

With the help of the sponsors, Lamudi was able to launch a successful Housing Fair and pull off these activities listed above. For the July 20-21 Affordable Housing Fair, Subdivision & Housing Developers Association, Inc. (SHDA) served as the official event sponsor.

Aside from that, the SM Development Corporation served as the Premium Sponsor of the event. Major Sponsors of the Housing fair were Federal Land and Lancaster New City by ProFriends. Minor sponsors for the event were Aboitiz Land, BPI Family Housing Loan, DMCI Homes, and Mandaue Foam.

Of course, the help of the media partners which is Business Mirror, Business World, Malaya Business Insight, The Philippine Star, and the Philippine Daily Inquirer Property made it easy to spread the word which also contributed to the success of the event.

Lamudi now completes a third year of organizing a housing fair that brought real estate enthusiasts, both buyers, and sellers, together. Lamudi continues to look forward to bridging these two groups together for the rest of the year with the continuation of the Affordable Housing Fair series.

For those who missed the Glorietta housing fair, don’t worry. There are still more to come with a Housing Fair in SM Cebu on September 21-22. Before the year ends, Lamudi will be organizing another Housing Fair in SM Mall of Asia in December, so it’s an opportunity for those who missed this July’s Affordable Housing Fair to attend.
