About Me

Understanding Real Estate Issues About a year ago, I began thinking about unloading my existing property and getting a new house. Unfortunately, I wasn't really sure where to start, so I turned to a friend of mine who specialized in real estate. They walked me through the entire process of selling a house and investing in a new one, and I was really impressed with how much of a difference they made in my process. I began working hard to get things taken care of, and within a few months I was able to completely transform my finances with the sale of my home.

How to Give Your Life a Simplicity Makeover

If you've reached the stage of life where your kids are finally grown and out of the house, you're undoubtedly looking forward to enjoying more free time to pursue your own interests or even to just relax and enjoy your home environment. Following are three great ways that you can simplify your life in order to help make this happen. 

1. Get Rid of Your Lawn

Spending evenings and weekends babying a lawn is a huge waste of time, especially since you no longer need a nice lawn to provide a play area for children.  You'll have much more time to enjoy yourself if you get rid of your lawn and plant something else in its place -- as long as that something else is low-maintenance. Options include rock gardens, easy-care ground coverings such as creeping thyme, sedum, or creeping phlox. If you decide to go the groundcover route, choose something that you won't have to mow and that doesn't require a lot of water and fertilizer in order to thrive. 

Most people who decide to do away with their lawn replace it with several other uses. For instance, they may decide to extend their deck or patio or use part of the space to plant a vegetable or culinary herb garden. Herb gardens are very easy to take care of, and although vegetable gardens do require some maintenance, you'll have something tangible to show for it in the form of fresh and delicious fare for your table. 

2. Hold a Huge Estate Sale

Clutter is another huge time drain that most people are better off without, and you've probably accumulated quite a collection of it during your years of raising a family. Holding a huge estate sale will not only put unwanted items in the hands of those who can use them, it'll free up space in your home that you can use to explore your own interests. The crafting room you've always wanted, for instance, is within your reach now that you've got the opportunity to purge your home of all unwanted and unnecessary items. 

3. Buy a New Mobile Home

Another great way to simplify your life is to put your current home on the market and purchase a new mobile home. Your costs associated with home ownership will probably decrease, leaving you with more disposable income to use in pleasurable pursuits. You'll also enjoy more leisure time because you'll be free of types of household repair and maintenance chores. 

Please feel free to contact your local mobile home retailer for more information on giving your life a simplicity makeover and to help you find local new mobile homes for sale.
