London Apartments: Everything You Need To Know About Choosing A Serviced London Apartments

London Apartments: Everything You Need To Know About Choosing A Serviced London Apartments

A few weeks ago a secretary telephoned me in absolute desperation. She was desperately searching for accommodation in central London for some VIPs from abroad. She stumbled onto my website, not really understanding what the service was about. I think the words 'free service', 'apartments' just helped her to figure out that Quality London Apartments had something to do with accommodation. Apologies for my long opening, but it is a prime example of how little travelers in the UK and Europe know about the serviced apartment industry. After explaining the concept of serviced apartments and helping her find an apartment, I realized that I needed to share this knowledge further afield. Thus, this article is my contribution to open up this elusive industry and offer tips to travelers.

What is a serviced apartment?

A serviced apartment is a flat in a block, which has a separate bedroom, sitting room/lounge, fully equipped kitchen, your own private keys to own door. Serviced apartments can be in the form of a studio flat (all in one room with a kitchenette), one, two or three bedrooms.

All apartments enjoy maid service, utilities and a management team to help....just like a hotel. Guests only pay for a nightly rate and can live in a flat with everything they would have in their own home.

Pros: Serviced London Apartment vs Hotels

 More value for money and cheaper. In a hotel, no matter which star rating, you pay per night for one room which will have a TV, bathroom, sofa and a bed. This is similar to a studio apartment! In an apartment there is a separate bedroom, kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and dining table (exception is studio)

 Pay per apartment and not per person. An example would be paying £250 per night for a two bedroom apartment, which could accommodate up to 4 people, that works out at £62.50 per person.

 Freedom and privacy. An apartment is like being in your own home and there is plenty of space. You have your own keys to your own door.

 Booking is easy, just like hotels. The majority of apartments require a credit card to guarantee, pre-payment before you arrive and that's it. No deposits, no tenants' contracts.

Cons: Serviced London Apartment vs Hotels

 Apartments lacks the buzz and services of a hotel such as restaurants and Room Service. Albeit some apartments are owned by hotels and offer you the use of their restaurants and other services.

 No 24-hour service around the clock. The apartments are ran by a small team who work Monday to Friday 9:00am - 6:00pm, so you are on your own during the weekend. There are emergency numbers to call should you suffer an electric cut, but no 24-hours hotel Duty Manager to run to your room.

 No pool, massages, saunas like hotels

What to look out for when booking a serviced London apartment?

1. Quality of the apartment - make sure you find out if they are clean, well furnished and well maintained. How? Check the photos, and ask if you can book an appointment to view the apartment. This is very important if you are staying over a long period of time.

2. Do they have a friendly and efficient management team? If you need the comfort of a welcoming face to greet you on arrival, then ask for an apartment with a reception. Some apartments provide key boxes, so you can arrive any time, but there is no-one to meet you. A friendly and small team will be able to give you a very personal touch.

3. Opening time of the apartments office - doesn't sound important? Well it is because the majority of apartments' operations team open Monday to Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm. If you arrive at your apartment during office open hours, then fine, but any other time and weekends will mean that you will need to pick up the keys from a different location.

4. Key delivery by car at the airport? - If you are flying from abroad to London, and do not fancy traipsing throughout London at night to pick up keys, the majority of apartments will hire a taxi to deliver your keys to the airport upon your arrival. Convenient for a small charge.

5. Payment procedure and cancellation policy - every apartment vary in their guest terms and conditions. All will accept a credit card as a guarantee of reservation, some will ask for 100% pre-payment at least 7 days prior to arrival and cancellation can range from 12:00pm on the day of arrival to 28 days. So, before you confirm the reservation, be very clear about the terms and conditions. Ask your apartment agents to explain the procedure to you and read the terms and conditions on your confirmation emails. It will save you a great deal of trouble and headache later.

6. Apartments are always allocated on arrival. This policy is the same as any hotel, so unless you are a regular guest to a specific apartment, apartments are on allocations. In the same breath, some apartments only have a small number of flats, so if you are reserving the only 3 bedrooms penthouse in their collection, then you are guaranteed that specific apartment.

7. Rates become more competitive the longer you stay. In this, we mean you have more bargaining power if you are staying for one month or longer. This is when your apartment agent can really help you by negotiating with a variety of apartments to get you the best deal.

8. Using an apartment agent will also save you time searching, but most importantly they will work with your budget and negotiate a great deal for you. Of course, you also need to be realistic about what you can book, don't expect to spend £80 per night for a luxury apartment. For example, one of our clients had £300 budget per night for a two bedroom apartment and he wanted something luxury. For those readers who know London well, also understands that this budget is actually very small. Despite that, we booked him and 3 friends into the Victoria Park Plaza luxury apartment (£150 per night less than the usual price) for £300 per night with free breakfast, gym and access to the executive lounge. Any apartment agent worth their salt can and will move mountains to help you.

What if I don't like the apartment when I get there?

If you really feel that you have been hard done by, tell the apartment management team and ask to be moved to another apartment. All of the apartments that we work with are very customer focussed and try to help guests enjoy their stay. If this does not work, talk to your apartment agent, if that is how you booked. Best advice though, is to ask all the right questions before you book an apartment.

Your appetite for apartments is now whetted - how do you find London apartments?

1. As already explained, you can choose a free search and book service of an apartment agent or go direct to a specific apartment that you know. Both methods are absolutely fine, dependent of your knowledge of London apartments. Using an agent will mean that they will search far across their portfolio and present you with a variety of choices...all within 10-15 minutes. Agents are impartial and will only (good agents anyway) recommend the quality apartments for your needs.

2. You can use search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN to find apartments. Type in keywords like 'London serviced apartments' or 'quality London apartments' and so on.

3. Stating the obvious but, ask for a recommendation from friends and acquaintances.

4. Check on Tripadvisor and other customer review websites.

Summary

If you have read this far, then thank you for your time. I have tried to make this article clear and as helpful as possible, but I welcome your comments and any further information that you feel is very important.

How To Select Your Preferred Bali Hotels

How To Select Your Preferred Bali Hotels


Bali is a wonderful island situated in Indonesia, the ultimate tourist destination in Asia, is worth a visit. Most people come to Bali for its beach, waves, sun, some come for business, some come for its undying art and culture, some come for its breathtaking landscapes and some for pure relaxation.

Choosing Bali for your holiday destination, of course you should select and decide your preferred Bali Hotel which would match your interests. There are myriad of accommodations to choose from in Bali, from five-star luxury hotels to budget accommodations.

Bali Hotels by locations: Accommodations by the sea (has beach front), in town and hotels are situated in countryside. Or Bali Hotels by interest (boutique hotels, villas, small hotels in traditional Balinese style bungalow and big or leading Bali Hotels).

Every place has its own attractions and features:
Sanur: Famed for its white sandy beach, sun rise, sea activities, close to other places of interest. Is for gracious living, peaceful and quiet. More "international" but somehow far less cosmopolitan than frenetic Kuta. There are so many excellent hotels here that you can scarcely go wrong.

Kuta: Frenetic, sometime chaotic, noisy, lots of hype, but a great playground. Originally what drew visitors to Kuta was the wide beach and the surf. It still has best sea front on the island. Kuta also famed for its shopping, dine and night lives. Though there are now many first-class hotels and home stays, caters best to the economy traveler who likes to be in the thick of things.

Legian & Seminyak: Lie at the north end of Kuta Beach strip. This is the place to stay if you want the best of both worlds. Conveniently located within 15 minutes from the center of Kuta, yet safely removed from the nerve-wrecking intensity and hype. The villages are perfect for extended vacations. There are several first-class hotels, a great number of intermediate-range bungalow, and inexpensive accommodations.

Nusa Dua & Tanjung Benoa: The area is rather isolated from the rest of Bali. Nusa Dua is providing a "total" hotel environment, everything you could possibly ask for is available on the premises. White sandy beach and a wide range of sea activities.

Jimbaran bay: Has nice and wide beach, good sunset (weather permitted), and close to Airport. There are two leading hotels, good villas and nice hotels in Balinese style bungalow.

Ubud & environs: The heart of arts and cultures of Bali. There are many small resorts deluxe and intermediate accommodations, most blend of typical Balinese and modern amenities. Situated either in town or in the countryside, most have wonderful gardens and views. Ubud is a paradise for shopping too.

The east: Offer more restful vacation.
Nusa Lembongan: Is a surfing, snorkeling and diving paradise. There are some excellent hotel resorts and some inexpensive hotels.
Balina beach: Buitan Village, this is spacious, gorgeous white sand beach, is one of the major scuba diving centers of Bali. There are a deluxe hotel and some intermediates and budget hotels.
Candi Dasa: The beach (at low tide, at high tide there IS no beach) because it has been eroded by the waves, but Candi Dasa offer restful vacation. There are first-class, intermediate and inexpensive hotels. You will be treated here with the utmost of graceful service.

The North:
Lovina beach: A northern beachfront alternative to Kuta and Sanur, this is a serene and infrequently visited vacation spot. Black sand beaches and quite waters nestles inside of extensive coral reefs distinguish this idyllic beach. Snorkeling is superb here and the reef is close enough that even children and beginner swimmers can feel comfortable here. There are first-class, intermediate and inexpensive hotels.

Western Beaches:
Up along this coast north of Kuta and Legian lies a stretch of black sand beach with a dangerous reef and heavy undertow, these beaches are not ideal for swimming and beginner surfers. At Canggu there are some luxury hotels. Yeh Gangga boast a small luxury resort Waka Gangga is facing the Indian Ocean. Tanah Lot boast a leading hotel Le Meridian and a world championship golf course with breathtaking view of famous Tanah Lot temple and sunset.

Western Interior:
Bedugul: This mountain resort is famous for its air, restful and serene. There are a number of places to stay here, from luxury hotels to budget accommodations (losmen).

The quickest and easiest way to select your preferred Bali Hotels is to go online and visit hotel reservation website. Do a search for the city or place (Indonesia, Bali, Hotels) you are traveling to and you will be presented with a list of available hotels in that area. There are also more information about hotel's and room's facilities. Most luxury hotel has excellent spa facilities.

The wide choice can be confusing - especially for first-time visitors - and it's sometimes difficult to select the right accommodation. So still go online and click travel. Choose your reputable travel agent (contact him by e-mail). Just let him know your personal needs and preferences that he can recommend those hotels he feel suit you best.

My immense thanks to you readers.

Bali Property Prices Continue to Skyrocket and Show No Sign of Slow

Bali Property Prices Continue to Skyrocket and Show No Sign of Slow


Demand for land in Bali has been fuelled by the healthy recovery in Tourism that has taken place since the dual tragedies of the past few years. Many more foreigners along with more and more local Indonesian investors have acquired properties in Bali as they feel it is a safe and secure place to settle and invest despite the recent troubles. In fact, even after the attacks, Bali property prices have continued to increase dramatically,

Over the past ten years the world property markets have been going through the roof and Bali property prices have followed suit to keep up with this demand. Cliff-top and beachfront land which, ten years ago was in huge abundance and as cheap as a few hundred dollars per 100 square metres, has all but disappeared from the central areas of South Bali for all but those developers with the deepest of pockets, and are now trading at prices of upwards of 20,000 USD.

Of course, Bali property prices are dependent upon the area that you wish to buy.
Prices variation depends upon three factors: location, location and location. Cliché it may seem but proximity to the ocean, the downtown scene and the ricefield views are paramount to the price of property in Bali.

To give you some idea of the increase in Bali property prices, here are a few specific examples of the land value increases over the past ten years from 1996 to 2006 according to Exotiq’s latest figures. (All prices are quoted in USD for one are of land. One are of land equals100 square metres): -

Oberoi has risen from $2000 per 100 square metres in 1996 to $100,000 in 2006. Cliff-top Bukit from $2000 to $23,500.
Seminyak from $1,500 to $25,000 .
Ubud riverside land from $2,500 to $12,500.
Batu Belig from $2,500 to $22,000.
Jimbaran ocean view from $4000 to $18,500.

Bali property prices by comparison are almost half the price of a comparable villa in Phuket, Thailand, which is less attractive, more expensive and with a longer rainy season than Bali.

The market and the buying public know just how valuable prime Bali land is, so property prices can only continue to rise. Despite these increasing prices, there seems to be no end to the profits to be made on investments in the best Bali property.

Dubai Property Ownership- Safeguarding your Dubai property investment by the formation of a corporation or family trust. by Lesley-Anne Johnston

Dubai Property Ownership- Safeguarding your Dubai property investment by the formation of a corporation or family trust.  by Lesley-Anne Johnston

Background

In recent years it has become common practice for foreign owners to hold Dubai property in offshore structures. Certain people, whether resident or non-resident in Dubai can benefit from owning Dubai property through a company. This article outlines how one can purchase a Dubai property (in areas where foreigners may do so) through a corporate structure.

Benefits of purchasing Dubai property via a company or trust

• Avoidance of potential inheritance complications. By using an offshore company and/or an offshore trust the UAE rules of succession relating to real estate can be avoided. The use of an offshore company is certainly recommended and the addition of a trust can be valuable in certain circumstances, although this can be a complex area given that there may be tax consequences depending on an individual's domicile and residence. It may be wise to seek professional advice. • A company is a legal entity in its own right, so it never dies. Upon death, the shares in the company will only be dealt with under UAE law if the deceased's domicile is in the UAE • Tax efficiency • Framework for joint investments. Several investors can merge within an offshore structure and hold shares which reflect their property ownership ratios • Confidentiality. Purchasing a property via a British Virgin Islands (BVI) company, for example, provides an ideal vehicle for buyers who do not wish for their identity to be revealed. Details of shareholders and directors are not a matter of public record in BVI. • Asset protection. Many clients also use the company structure to protect investments such as equities, yachts and private aircraft. • Limited liability • Minimisation of transfer fees. On the sale of a property owned by a company it is the sale of company's shares which effects the sale rather than the sale of the property itself. Depending on the contractual agreement with the developer this could potentially avoid liability for transfer fees. • Mortgage facilities. Mortgages are available from selected banks in Dubai. They are primarily available to UAE offshore companies such as Jebel Ali and Ras-al-Khaimah, but not to BVI companies.

Procedure

Before purchasing the property the first owner obtains a new offshore company and in most cases installs himself as the shareholder and director. The company then purchases the property.

The cost attached to the purchase and maintenance of the company is relatively low.

When the property is sold, it is not in fact the company which is sold, but the shares in the company are transferred to the new owner. Property developers in Dubai are generally familiar with the use of BVI companies. The documentation and administration required to transfer the ownership of a new BVI company can be
achieved in one working day.

Investing in UK Property – a Wise Decision for High Return

Investing in UK Property – a Wise Decision for High Return

The price of land in UK has been increased by almost 92% in the past 20 years. Thus investment in UK land has proved to be highly rewarding as returns on investment in land have outperformed the returns from stock market. Investing in UK land for long term capital growth has returned stunning rates of growth. In addition to the potential returns from a speculative UK land investment the land owner can actually utilize and enjoy the actual amenity value of the land whilst they wait for planning permission to be granted or for their land to be re-zoned. In addition, the actual land is likely to increase in value in real terms. This is because even agricultural land is currently increasing in value at a greater rate than real estate.


UK Land Investments Group one of the specialists at investing in land, source and purchase the very best strategic land, with real development potential. This highly professional team believes in offering the very best land to clients and help to improve standards in rapidly growing land investments industry. UK Land Investments always work hard to ensure that their clients feel well informed at every stage of the way. UK Land Investments believe in researching the development sites that they offer to clients very thoroughly before offering them to clients to invest in.



Investing in a UK property would act as a hedge against the falling US Dollar. This mean that one’s monthly rental would allow him to take advantage of the falling US Dollar against the British pound. This would result in more rentals even if the monthly rental does not increase due to currency gains. A good idea would be to analyze one’s global investment property portfolio and do some portfolio analysis and examine how the currency movements might affect his returns on investment and make some corresponding changes in portfolio allocation.



Investing in the UK is good as there is a strong rental culture in the various parts of the city. This will let one earn more for his buck as compared to investing in some other areas in the world. UK is a strong magnet for education like some parts of the US, one has lots of opportunity to rent out his property to overseas students. If one has decided to migrate to the UK, for settling, renting the property or guesthouse might be something interesting for him to consider doing.



In conclusion, investing in the UK is a good move, as it would enable anyone from the USA to take advantage of the rising pound against the dollar. One can take advantage of strong rental yields and increased rental from areas such as London, the tourist areas and university towns. As with most investments option one should spend some time talking to real estate brokers and agents and spend some time learning about the particular area of his interest and in which he is intended to invest. It will help one to do better in the UK investment property.

Ownership of a house in Thailand

Ownership of a house in Thailand

Thailand Law Online: A building in Thailand as distinct from its land can be owned and transferred separate from its land. Buildings in Thailand, apart from condominiums, do not have any form of title deed document. As an individual immovable property it can be transferred separate from its land. This must be in writing and registered by the competent authority (i.e. the Thai Land Department).
Beware that the 'house book' or blue or yellow book (a Ta.Bian.Baan or Tabien Bahn) is an administrative document issued by by the local Administraive Office, not the Land Department, therefore this book is certainly not a proof of ownership.
When a foreigner buys a property in Thailand the land part can be sold under a leasehold agreement (as foreigners can't own the land) and the house can be sold separate from the land. This means that a land lease agreement is offered and a sale and purchase agreement for the house is drawn up, both specifying the terms of the lease and the terms of teh sale.
Both the land lease and house transfer must be registered at the Land Department.
When buying in a development 'off the plan' instead of a sale agreement for the house or construction agreement can be offered, however the building permit must be in the foreigner's name.
Often a lease for 'land and house' is offered, but this the least beneficial structure for foreigners and not the recommended long term structure for possession of the property (i.e. this is legally the weakest structure). To improve someone's interest in the immovable property a 'right of superficies' (the registered right to own a building upon someone else's land) improves the leaseholder's position on expiration or termination of the lease. Rights of ownership of a building upon someone else's land relates directly to the rights to use or possess someone else's land. You could lose your rights under a land lease agreement, but your rights under the right of superficies could remain enforceable.
The transfer procedure for an existing house in Thailand is as follows:
1. The parties must present themselves at the local land office to announce the sale. This is part of the official process and separate from the private sale and purchase agreement between the parties
If a party can't attend the land office (e.g. the foreigner is abroad) a proxy can be appointed. In this case the official land office power of attorney form (document Tor-Dor 21) is required
3. Documents required: Tor-Dor 21 (if applicable), building permit or previous land office sale agreement, Ta bian Baan, ID's of the parties (passport or ID-card)
4. The land office will issue 4 copies of the notification of the sale of a structure ( public notice), to be put up at the Or Bor Tor, the District Office, the Kamnan Office and at the building itself for a 30-day announcement (to see if anyone wishes to contest ownership)
5. After the 30 days public notice period the parties must present themselves again to sign the official land office sale agreement which effectively transfers ownership.
Proof of ownership of the house can be either the official land office sale agreement, as signed at the land office, or the construction permit in the owner's name.

How to get the best returns from your Bangkok Property.

If you are investing in property and you want to sell or rent it out to get the best returns you should be aware of demand for properties in prime locations of Bangkok is still high particularly for units near mass-transit routes. Premium properties make good investments as many expatriates relocating to Thailand need residences within walking distance of the Skytrain or subway. So, where to find such buyers?


Try listing you premium property with premium agents whose majority of their clients are expat in Thailand and highly educated professional Thai. Agents who market properties on different quality channels to maximize the exposure of properties to premium buyers. Agents who have professional sales teams facilitate premium buyers to visit your property and also offer you concrete suggestions for improving the chances of a sale.

Buy a Property in Bangkok the Recommended Way

Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the whole world and more and more people who visit it are willing to buy a property in Bangkok.

Foreigners who are interested in Bangkok real estate investing must be familiar with property laws in Thailand, if they do not want to have an unpleasant surprise. Anyone can buy a unit in a condominium, but foreigners cannot own free land and houses. According to a Thai rule, foreigners can buy only a certain percentage from the total area of the condominium, in a proportion that does not exceed 49% of all the units in the condominium. A local real estate agent can tell you if you fulfill the necessary conditions in order to buy a unit of a condominium or rent a property in Bangkok.

You can make a good idea about the local market if you resort to an experienced local agent, who knows his or her business. Thus, you will not have to worry about any failure of your Bangkok real estate investing, since such an investment
will bring you the expected long-term profit. The commercial real estates have exploded these last years and Bangkok real estate investing can turn out to be tricky, if you do not have a well-thought plan. Anyone can rent a property in Bangkok, but the success of the investment does not offer a guarantee as long as a team of experts has not advised you.

Bangkok real estate investing is not only about buying or renting the desired property in Bangkok. Apart from the money that you will spend on renting or buying, there will also be other operating expenses. The maintenance fee of the property you buy or rent faces charging by the month. The owners will decide the amount of money to pay. Furthermore, if you own a property in Bangkok, you will have to pay a property tax that varies according to the estimated value of the property.

Finding a licensed Bangkok property Real Estate Agent is not an easy task, because, just like in other cities, there are always many unauthorized agents who are looking forward to trick you into buying their inadequately constructed properties. Before you buy a property in Bangkok, it is very important to verify that the agency has a license and that they come with good recommendations. Remember that the success of your Bangkok real estate investing lies in his /her hands and you should not shy away from asking for recommendations.

In addition, it is also recommended to consult with a local attorney about possible pitfalls as well as other miscellaneous laws that are applicable to foreigners. For those foreigners wanting to buy a property in Bangkok, it is also pertinent to check out the new areas that are developing quickly. For instance, the train transportations (BTS) is quickly being developed and cause the real estate to increase quite rapidly in areas that were not popular before. Bangkok is a place that is worth investing in, but do not expect any short-term profitable results. In the end, the money you have spent on the property will pay off – you only need to start with a long-term goal.

Australian Property - Guide to Buying Property in Australia

The Australian Property Market

When it comes to nations in the world that are experiencing a thriving real estate market, Australia is towards the top of the list. Indeed, over the course of the past decade, the real estate market in many locations around Australia has been booming.

Major Australian cities naturally are experiencing the biggest growth in their real estate markets. Cities like Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne are leading the way in the real estate arena. In addition, a great number of more rural areas in the country are experiencing a surprising growth in their own real estate markets. Many people have come to find the more rural areas of the Down Under to have particular appeal.

Investment Property in Australia

An increasing number of people -- both Australian nationals and people living abroad -- have become more involved in purchasing and owning investment real estate in Australia since the turn of the century. Generally speaking, the up tick in the acquisition of investment real estate throughout Australia is taking shape in two general areas.

First of all, a growing number of people are seeking, finding and purchasing real property in th major Australian cities that is then leased to different types of business enterprises. A surprising number of foreign nationals are involved in this type of investment scheme. For example, many Europeans have taken to investing part of their capital in commercial and business properties in the major Australian cities.

Generally speaking, investors have realized a fairly substantial return in this type of investment in recent years. Indeed, from a long term investment standpoint, real estate values have continued to rise significantly in all major Australian cities for the past decade.

Second, a notable number of people who are seeking an investment in income producing real estate have taken to putting their money into properties that are involved in the tourism trade in Australia in one fashion or another. Tourism remains a primary industry in the Down Under in the 21st century. An ever growing number of visitors are trooping to Australia with each passing year.

Most real estate analysts in Australia maintain that no proverbial bubble is yet in sight when it comes to the investment market Down Under. Therefore, most of these experts agree that a present day investment in real estate in Australia is a solid decision, not only for today but well into the future.

Residential Real Estate in Australia - Single Family Properties

As a nation, Australia is a country in which home ownership is a goal (and the reality) for a vast majority of people throughout the country. In point of fact, at the present time, over 70% of the population of Australia owns residential property. A clear minority are tenants or involved in some other living arrangement that does not include the ownership of a home.

In today's Australia, the development and construction of single family residences is being undertaken at a fast clip. The major Australian cities, for the most part, have not yet been overbuilt. Thus, the demand for these properties continues to outstrip supply, at least to some extent. As a result, and generally speaking across the country, the Australian residential real estate market remains a seller's market. Most industry experts and analysts expect this status to remain over the course of the coming ten years.

ArticleBase Presents: Benefits of Australia Investment
By: Andrea Patterson

It is not possible to describe and list all the benefits of Australia investment. The popularity of Australia as a tourist spot has grown exponentially and many locales in Australia have been listed in 'thousand places to see before you die' list. Therefore, Australia investment is considered quite hot and happening right now. However, people from all over the world have been investing in Australia for quite some time now. The Australian outback, beaches, sheer variety of sports played all year round, the cultural contribution of the Australian aboriginals and pleasant weather almost all year round make Australia a haven for investors. Australia investment mainly includes buying property in a good Australian real estate region.

Some people prefer to buy a luxury apartment, some prefer buying cottages and cabins, some prefer land and still others think buying yachts or boats is a good investment. However, buying prime property remains the best and most popular type of Australia investment. For any property related consideration, you can approach Vivas Lend Lease. They can help you find a piece of real estate that is most suitable to your needs.

Some important factors to consider when investing in Australia property are:
" How the property is financed?
" What is the condition and desirability of the property?
" Is it brand new to maximize tax benefit?
" Is it located in a recognized developing area to maximize capital growth?
" Is the right timing to invest in the property?
" Has it been properly valued?
" What has been the growth rate for the following areas?

Comparing various apartment investments in Australian cities can be a pain if you are new to the area and have never been around. To find the best apartment investments in Australia you can contact the real estate brokers. If possible, go to a broker that has been recommended by someone you know. This will ensure more transparency in deals. You can also choose various real estate sites available on the Internet to compare apartment investments in Australia. However, you may find a lot of brokers on these portals too.

After buying any property in Australia, you can reap its rewards by either leasing it or selling it for higher profit. Student population is also very high in Australia, therefore you can easily get tenants.

While looking at various property investment options, you need to do a little background research to find out if the property is a good buy. If you are getting a bargain that is too good to be true, it probably is! Be very wary of shady and immediate deals that demand money in cash and promise to give you the papers in some time. Always involve good solicitors and firms like Vivas Lend Lease for going through a safe and secure deal.

About Aruba Timeshare Resales And Various Contracts Offered

About Aruba Timeshare Resales And Various Contracts Offered

he thinking behind timeshares was created in Europe during 1960. A ski resort which was situated in the french alps decided that instead of renting the resort to the guests each year he would in fact give ownership instead. Selling a week ownership would then allow the owners of that timeshare deed to have authority to whatever they wish with that deed. There are a number of different types of Aruba timeshare resales. The deeds that are issued with a time share are a contract that will usually cover a weeks time at the resort. The period of time that the timeshare is for is called a time share interval. Each year the timeshare interval is recurring transaction. The overall time line of a time share will depend on the type of contract that the owners chooses.
The first type of timeshare resale contract would be the deeded contract. With this type the use of any resort is divided into periods which usually last a week. Such shares are recognized as partial ownership and are considered to be real estate.
Owners of this contract type have certain options. They can choose to use the time share interval, rent it or provide it as a gift.
With the time share interval the owner can choose the week in which they wish to vacation at the resort. By renting it out they are able to advertise it on-line. Aruba timeshare resales are also offered on this type of web site. Instead of reselling their timeshare they can use to give as a gift to friends or family.
Internal Exchange Under the Umbrella Group
Owners always have the option to exchange their deeds with other owners under the particular umbrella group of time share resorts they belong to.
This particular action postdates those of time share resales rentals. When time share resorts started to merge under one umbrella group, the number of resales or rentals decreased. This shows that owners of time shares does want to retain their acquired time shares, they just opted for resales or rentals due to boredom of having to take a vacation at the same resort every year.
External Exchange with about 5,000 Resorts all Over the World
The exchange trade of time share had a major breakthrough by opening the doors for the possible exchange of time shares to more than 5,000 resorts globally.
Due to this, the number of time share resales or rentals continued its decrease and almost fell to a slump among advertising web sites
The next type of timeshare contract is called the right to use.
With this type the owner/purchase of the time share is only allowed use of the resort. The right to use will be in the contract.
However at a future date the contract and all rights associated with it will be terminated and full ownership will return to the property developer. The purchaser of this type of timeshare will only be allowed to use the resort within a specified time line. This contract only allow the purchase usage therefore certain restrictions are place on the time share. Aruba time share resale are not permitted with the type of deal as whoever purchased the resort is never in complete control.
There can also be restrictions in place that are put into affect by certain countries who places limits on the ownership of foreign properties. Countries such as Mexico build time share resorts but will only offer them through a right to use contract and not a deeded one. In such time shares the resales become impossible because who ever purchases the timeshares does not actually own the deeds to it, hence the reason they have no right or real ownership of the properties.
There are vacation clubs which are organizations that have chosen to invest in timeshare resorts. For example they may choose to invest in an Aruba condo or Aruba resort hence owning the deeds to these. Many vacation clubs own time share deeds from all over the world.
This allows the vacation clubs the option to sell units they own to club member either through a right to use or deeded contract. Such an action is also know as time share resales as the vacation club is reselling what they have bought from the resorts.
Another prime example of a vacation club is the Disney one. Club members who purchased into one of the resorts can reserve vacation times at any of the properties that are owned by the club.

Expat Living in Bangalore

Expat Living in Bangalore


Bangalore, now known officially as Bangaluru, is hardly one of India 's greatest tourist destinations. The city has heavy pollution, crazy traffic, few sightseeing opportunities, and the rest of India 's population density related issues. However, as the Silicon Valley of India, the fourth-busiest airport hub in the country, and home to a burgeoning middle class, it's a cosmopolitan city you just might want to call “home.”

Bangalore is home to thousands of expatriates from around the globe. Most have been stationed there by their companies, though some have been hired and imported by local companies. Others are spouses or children of expats serving in the enormous IT sector, and have become the customers to an ever-greater array of services and products aimed at giving foreign residents a taste of home. Still more now run businesses or work in companies that surround and support the IT industry or Bangalore 's growing economy.

Cost of living is reasonable, comparing quite well with cities in Western Europe and North America. Though this is expensive by Indian standards, the well-fueled economy in Bangalore has brought a thriving sector of well educated Indians and foreigners to the city. As of 2008 the price of an average 2-bedroom apartment might range from roughly $350 to $1,100 per month.

There are also extensive communities of expats from every country that does businesses in Bangalore 's IT and BPO (business process outsourcing) sectors. Into these communities have come vast arrays of businesses that cater to them, and service professionals in a variety of roles, speaking a babble of languages. Maids, cooks, and nannies can be found at reasonable cost, including those who speak English and other common expatriate languages. There are also wealth of private schools that rival or top those in the West. Some utilize Western education theory and offer different types of learning environments, such as Montessori schools. There are dozens of English-language bookstores available. Art lessons, music instruction, horseback riding, and every other pursuit an expatriate family might want for spouses and children abound.

Of course, it is still India, and there will still be culture shock. Traffic will seem insane and the streets labyrinthine; Bangalore was not a planned community and has grown at dizzying speed. Religious customs and traditions will be very different from home life. Differences in customs may make relationships with locals confusing and awkward at times. Food may take some getting used to, and occasionally an expat will just need a taste of home. (Luckily, Western-style supermarkets and malls are getting to be more common than they were a few years ago.) The most well adjusted expatriates accept these as a fascinating subject to study and as a new and interesting lifestyle. Others won't fare so well, and may seek the comfort of an expatriate group or community.

The best method for preparing yourself and your family for life in Bangalore is to talk to others who have lived there. If your company is sending you on assignment, ask them what resources they have to ensure that your stay and that your eventual return home, is as smooth as possible. Read expatriate blogs online, and meet with people who have been there. Those relationships may be your most valuable asset during your time in Bangalore.

How To Find Accommodation In The Spanish Capital City

How To Find Accommodation In The Spanish Capital City


Look into all the different options to find the one that will best suit you and your needs.

There are a number of hotels to choose from that range in price and location. Hotels in Madrid are rated from one to five stars, with the five star hotels being the luxury options. Hotels include service such as laundry and complimentary breakfast. You can expect a middle of the range hotel to cost in the region of 75 euros per night.

Aparthotels are apartments that are found within hotels. These offer many of the additional services that hotels offer, such as laundry, breakfast in your room, reception and wake-up calls, however they are more private than a hotel. They are also larger than hotel rooms as they are apartments and so they often suit those who are traveling as a family and may want some extra space. They are rated by a key system and you will generally find that when comparing a hotel of 3 stars with an aparthotel of 3 keys, the aparthotel will be a slightly cheaper option.

Another good option for a family, who is on holiday in Madrid, is the self catered apartment option. These will provide you with more space, more privacy and more freedom than staying at a hotel or even an aparthotel. They will also give you more of a feel of living in the city. You can generally expect to pay from 75 euros per day for these apartments.

Youth hostels, otherwise known as albergue juvenile, are the cheapest holiday accommodation option available. They will generally cost you around 15 euros a night. These have shared sleeping dormitories which are usually same sex. They may also provide family or group rooms. These are a great place to stay for single young travelers as they are cheap, you will meet other fellow travelers and you will find out a lot about what is happening in the region.

The word "hostal" is a Spanish word that is used to refer to a small, typically family-run hotel. These hostals are cheaper than staying in a hotel as they do not offer the same amenities as hotels. They are rated from one to three stars. You can generally choose to rent a room either with or without a private bathroom, in which case you will need to use the shared bathroom. It is similar in concept to a guesthouse. They are generally clean and friendly with plenty of tourist information at hand.

You should look into the area that you would like to be based in before you look for accommodation options to choose from. The center of the city is noisy and full of bustle. If that suits you, you should look to stay in the area of Puerta del Sol. If you want to be in a quieter area, but still near the center of the city, you can stay near the Paseo del Prado.

Making moving to Melbourne easier

Making moving to Melbourne easier

When moving to Melbourne, you will need a place to live. There are many possibilities, but the easiest way is to find a Melbourne apartment for rent in an area which is convenient for your needs. With apartments spread all across the city of Melbourne, finding one which suits your unique needs and requirements is possible.
Which of the many Melbourne apartments for rent should you choose? This decision is constrained by your budget, lifestyle and work location. Budget will be critical in factoring where you rent your apartment – bayside suburbs and those places with spectacular vistas often command a higher rental price than those which are nestled in the quieter areas of the city. Facilities offered at the place are also things which impact the cost when you chose which Melbourne apartment to rent. Do you need a swimming pool, or a gymnasium on site? How about a tennis court or a spa and sauna? If you don’t think you could live in an apartment without these facilities, the cost of your rental will go up. Whereas if you can do without a tennis court, or a doorman, you will find that many more places will fit into your budget.
Lifestyle is another important factor when choosing which Melbourne apartment for rent you wish to live in. Those who want the sea and sand would find areas like Port Melbourne and St Kilda more appealing, while those who want a more urban/city-side lifestyle, with chic cafes and restaurants, would be more at home in the CBD, or Southbank. Noise is another factor, with higher floors often being quieter than those lower to the city streets – while St Kilda road is a quieter location than the corner of Bourke and Collins Street in the CBD.
Finally, work location will impact your choice of Melbourne apartment. Most businesses that relocate employees have offices in the heart of the city – the CBD. So your next decision is if you want to live close to your workplace, or would rather live away and commute each day. Melbourne has a large, well-integrated public transport network, so if commuting is ok by you – then as long as you are near a major public transport artery, and you work in the city – then the locations you can chose from when looking at a Melbourne apartment for rent increase. If commuting isn’t your thing, then generally the CBD and Southbank area would be for you – as you have a few moments walk between your front door and your office.
Melbourne is a wonderful city, with many exciting features, and when choosing an apartment to rent, always keep in mind these things, and it will make your experience that much more memorable.
