Location, location, relocation

A lot of investors friends tend to use their new properties for a couple of years before they sell on. They do this for two reasons. One is that they like to enjoy the space and sourounding area. Second reason is that they usually refurbish the house before they resell it, to be able to command a higher price. There is also the occasion when someone buys-to-let.
One way or another people are eager to experience the property and the area for at least one holiday season before they move on (excluding the professionals amongst us).

Relocation might be a heavy word but a move is surely on the cards. Moving as you might know is not an easy business. Some times the costs of moving alone can be hugely discouraging to a first time buyer of holiday property. Unless you have enough money tucked away to furnish the place from ground up, you will need the expert services of a moving company. The next obvious problem is therefore shopping around for a good deal and most importantly a reliable source.

Cleverly myMOVINGquote.com has found a market niche by bringing all the information you need together in one website. There is a geographical split for every US State plus a split between local, out of state and international movers.

All of the listed companies offer free quotes so you can compare prices and service levels and make an informed choice.
The only unconventional feauture is that there is no 'Home' button, which makes navigation slightly confusing and some States have no companies listed.

Other features include office moves, auto transport and storage. There are tips on how to choose the best company for your needs and the company is serious about covering every aspect of this so do give them a try.

Property investment picking up in Australia

Favourable conditions in the Australian property market has caused a return of investors. According to official figures investment lending was on the rise in New South Wales during February.

Stable interest rates help investors to feel more confident in the market. Median rent rates are also up and the combination of low vacancy rates and increasing rents are a no-brainer for property-to-let buyers.

Growth is expected to sustain throughout this year and there is a positive outlook amongst the Australian finance community that recent changes could signal a revival of the market.
