Are you one of the many Americans who had a home, condo, or townhouse and then had to move to a different area of the country, but you’ve had no luck selling your home in the old location? Whether people move to be closer to family or for a job, many Americans are stressed because they’re paying for two homes–one in the new location and one in the old location.
If your previous home is in a desirable location such as in a big city or by a lake, take a deep breath and relax. You may be able to take your home and turn it into a vacation rental by owner.
Vacation rentals by owners offer accommodations in a home setting. These are perfect for large parties or families that are traveling. They’re also attractive to visitors because they’re generally cheaper than hotels, and they also have amenities like

In our quest to help you discover a way to make a grand per month, the writers of this blog have shared a number of different posts about buying things and selling them for a profit. For instance, you could build a niche website and flip it for a profit. You could buy things in bulk, separate them out and sell them for a profit. You could buy things and sell them on eBay.
Or, like Brian Patrick, you could buy items and sell them on Amazon.
What Makes Selling on Amazon Different from Selling on eBay?
Sure, selling on eBay was all the rage a few years ago, but then the economy tanked and the market became saturated. Now, selling on eBay isn’t such a great thing, but according to Patrick, Amazon is.

Purchasing a home can be an exciting process, but it is important to avoid making rushed decisions. Instead, keep these do’s and don’ts in mind when shopping for a home and mortgage to make your purchase go a lot more smoothly and to plan.
Do Learn About Different Types of Mortgages
There are a lot of different types of mortgages out there, so you shouldn’t just settle for the first thing that your lender offers you. Instead, learn more about variable rate, fixed, split and other types of mortgages and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Ask any expat what it is they love about living in the Middle East, particularly in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and likely many will say the mix of sun, sea and sand and the tax-free living. Others will cite the dynamic and exciting business environment and the opportunities it affords them, or the range of entertainment venues and first-class banking facilities on offer, or even the mixing together of different peoples, cultures and values from around the world. It’s a bit like asking how long is a piece of string. The truth is there are almost as many reasons as the number of expatriates now currently living and working in the UAE.
Many in the West still have a strangely myopic, old-fashioned view of the Arab world, an impression rooted most probably in childhood with the telling of tales from the Arabian Nights – Aladdin and his

I distinctly remember him asking rhetorically, “Why can’t companies just buy their products with cash? Why does everyone in this world need to go into debt to buy stuff? Why can’t we all just live within our means?”
Now, a year later, the story has changed. After getting his first taste of luxury with his 2008 Audi A4 (which was purchased with a loan by the way), he is now salivating for a bigger house. Instead of being content with his $120,000 condo in a great part of town, he has begun to set his sights on a $300,000 brick home with more bedrooms than
