Home Buying Tips For Women In Real Estate Business

Although real estate has been a booming sector for some time in our country, still it has largely been a male bastion. Usually it’s the male of the house, whether its father or brothers, who make financial decisions and that includes a decision to buy a house. But with economic independence, women have taken control of their financial lives. They have started taking their own decisions and this includes a decision to buy property too. In some case, with no male left in the family due to deaths or otherwise, females have had to shoulder the extra responsibility of buying a house too. Whatever be the reason, they have come out with flying colours.

No longer considered a weaker sex, women have shown that they can do whatever men can do and the same goes for investing intelligently or buying property as an end user. Still, as the number of women real estate buyers is quite less in our country, they do face some issues while investing in a property. There are some issues which concern women especially and they should be taken care of while investing in real estate. But whether due to ignorance or overlooking, women might tend to miss on them and face dire consequences later on.

Some of the important, home buying tips for women being

  1. Security – if you are women buying a property, chances are that either you’re single or the bread earner or the eldest in the family. In these cases, security is of utmost importance. Living alone or without a male in the family does have issues related to it. Anti social elements do tend to take advantage of the situation. To avoid any untoward incident, one should always take the security point into consideration. Prefer buying a house in a gated community where there are ample security arrangements by the builder only. Do interact with your neighbors as they are the closest after your family. In case of need or any untoward happening, they are the first ones who can come to your help.

  2. Study the Market – Due to less frequent real estate buying by females, the tendency of the market is that females are gullible and can be fooled easily. Although that is not the case, but still one should always be on the guard. It is very important to do your homework. Study the market carefully and in detail. This can be done easily with the help of the online real estate portals on the internet. They not only have huge database, but also have industry experts who can be asked for advice on home buying tips, especially for women.

  3. Although it might sound tedious, but always see the property before buying it. Actual site visits are a must as they give the true picture of the property and its developments. Don’t go on the face value of the advertisements and brochures as they might be misleading. Try taking a male member of the house or a male friend with you while visiting the real estate agent or the builder’s office as this sends a signal to them that you are not alone and all by yourself besides giving you a feeling of confidence too.
Besides these points, the usual attention must be paid to facts like the study of prevailing market rates, proper check of the documents, purchase only from the owner and the physical inspection of the property in case it is a old property which you are planning to buy. These small steps ensure that you have a pleasant property buying experience which goes a long way to let you enjoy your hard earned investment.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
