The Excitement Of The Housing Market

If you’re deciding to enter into the property market, then you’re in for a treat. There’s so many rewards of entering into it. Whether you’re going for a career, you first time on the property ladder, or investment, there’s something to take the interest of everyone. This article is going to explore a few of the ways the housing market can be exciting for different people.



Some people might say that buying or selling a home is one of the most stressful experiences there is. But at the same time nobody can deny that it isn’t one of the most exciting as well. If it’s your first time buying, you’ll definitely go through a whirlwind of emotions. You’ll have the stress of saving for your deposit, and looking at houses that you’ll fall in love with, but will be gone by the time you’re ready to buy. You’ll then have the highs of finally having the deposit ready, and viewing houses that you’re hopefully going to move into. The comes the stress again with sorting out moving fee’s, and actually getting into your new home. Then comes the high again of having your own home. Whirlwind of emotions right? Selling is pretty much the same, except you have the added stress of selling a house. Sometimes offers will fall through, or you may not get the asking price you needed.



A career in real estate is a multitude of things. It’s stressful, rewarding, and most of all exciting. There’s a lot of money to be made when it comes to real estate. Securing a sale on a house can mean you receive a lot of money from commission. The happiness you’ll see in people’s faces when you help them get the sale they want is also so rewarding. But it is hard work. You’ll most likely be spending a lot of hours a day either at the office, in meetings, or taking clients round houses. You will be pressured to meet targets, but the rewards of that outweigh everything.



It is common now for people to be investing in properties in order to make a little extra money. Whether they’re investing to do a property flip, or to rent a house out, either one is an exciting time. It isn’t a stressful as buying or selling, because you don’t have the whole moving element involved. But it is stressful in terms of the risks involved. If you buy a run down property, flip it, and it doesn’t sell for your asking price, you’ve wasted a hell of a lot of money. If you’re investing to rent, things are usually a little easier as people are always keen to rent out a property. There will be a lot of help along the way from professionals if you need it, and you will need a large sum of money to invest in the beginning. It is common for people already owning a business to go into property investment, but anyone can do it.

Following a Career in Policing

When it comes to choosing a career, many of us feel lost. There are certain paths that tens of thousands of people decide to follow and careers that people decide to pursue every single day: retail, fast food, hospitality… the list goes on and on. But what about those of us who want something a little more demanding or just a bit different? Well, a good route to consider is policing. Policing is a career that will use both your mental and physical skills to dramatically improve the lives of others. So, if you’re dedicated and want to carve yourself a career that you can truly be proud of, here’s everything you need to know about professionally policing your community!


There are a whole variety of roles available in policing, as there is a clearly defined rank structure of different types of officers. From police constables to sergeants, inspectors, chief inspectors, superintendents, chief superintendents, and chief constables, to name just a few roles. As you gain experience, you can also progress onto specialist units, such as the criminal investigation department, the fraud squad, drugs squad, firearms, child protection, dog handling, underwater search units, mounted branches, or traffic control. As you can see, whatever your interest in the field of law enforcement, there’s some sort of role that you could thrive in, and almost endless possibility for promotion. There won’t be a dull day on the job!


Everyone has room for improvement, even the most established and competent police officer. Luckily, this is a career where you can constantly improve yourself. Not only will you be implemented on a strict training regime at the start of your career, but this is ongoing. You will climb the ranks, receiving rewards such as promotions or pay rises as you go! This self-improvement can also take the form of academic education, such as achieving a bachelor of policing. Socialising with other individuals in the field will also create situations where others can offer you profound pieces of advice or wisdom. You will also frequently be partnered up with other officers. This gives you the opportunity to mimic their style and behaviour, building upon what you already have yourself.


If you seek a sense of authority in your job, policing is one of the most rewarding options out there. As soon as you are given your badge and uniform, you assume the role of an authority figure in your local community. You will be someone that people actively seek out for help, reassurance, and assistance. You also gain the power to enforce order for the betterment of health, safety, morals, and the general welfare of all those around you.
These are just a few of the benefits associated with a career in policing, they are not comprehensive. However, they are a good start to exemplifying just how rewarding working in this field can prove to be. Not only do you have constant opportunities for self-improvement and advancement, but you can rest soundly in the knowledge that you dedicate every day of your working life to the care of your community.


Spending Money To Make Money: The Case For Universities

One of the things that many high school students do not know about their day to day lives is why the government is spending massive amounts of money on their education. Many young people will not have thought about it too much, especially since going to school is free for them, as it was for their parents, at least at the point of contact. Others will consider it a waste of money since they do not like going to school. However, the more idealistic students might think that the benevolence of the US government (which spends about $620 billion on public elementary and secondary schools each year) is motivated by humanist ideals such as the intrinsic value of an education and the beauty of knowledge and learning. However, the reality is that the government is spending so much money because it will soon rely upon the current high school generation to graduate, take up work and start paying their taxes. Without a literate, competent workforce, the US economy will completely fall apart. While learning about the wonders of science and universal truths of maths are intrinsically beautiful in themselves, this is just a happy byproduct of what is effectively a financial decision.

Some people may think that it is not worth worrying about because it is a fait accompli. Attendance at school is mandated by law. Whether they want to or not, they have to go. However, their legal obligation ends when they’re 16 (depending on the state). The decisions a young person makes after that are their own. To continue, they will have to pay for it. They have to ask the same question that the government does: is it worth it? The cost of studying at university varies depending on whether you go to a school in your state and whether it is private or not, but the average cost per year is about $33215. To go to an Ivy League school, you can expect to pay upwards of $60000. These costs are immense which is why many students are now considering the slightly cheaper option of studying remotely using the internet (like at Maryville University Online, for instance). If you look at the situation from a financial perspective, while it is an expensive investment it seems to be a good one, with graduates earning on average $48500 each year with non-graduates earning just $23900. Lower levels of education also tend to correspond with higher levels of unemployment. Over the course of a lifetime, a degree seems to pay for itself several times over.

However, not every decision in life should be motivated by money. There are lots of other reasons that going to university is a great choice. Young people, especially those who move away from home, will learn to be independent, to manage their finances responsibly and to run their own household. They will also likely meet friends that they’ll have for the rest of their lives and learn things that will inflame their imaginations and inform their character.

Going to university will always be an expensive choice but one that is certainly worth the money.
