Even though we like to believe that it is like a fairy tale investing money and expecting significant returns, it is not quite like that in the real world.

Investing in stocks is a complicated process that needs to go through some steps in order to become profitable. That is where so many people make mistakes and end up losing money on investments. In this article, we will highlight some of the most common mistakes you should avoid in order to make sure your time and money pay off.

1. Lack of Patience

When we think about the stock market, we think about buying and selling stocks for a profit.

However, time management is one of the most important things when investing in stocks. You need to know when to buy your stocks for the lowest price and sell them when they’ve achieved their maximum. Unfortunately, people are often inpatient in buying and selling their stocks. This business model is all about patience.

You cannot expect to invest a lot of money and become a millionaire overnight. It must be slow, but a steady and disciplined process. Most mistakes come from making a decision too fast, so try to be patient even though the stock market might be tempting.

2. Not Understanding The Investment

Investing in something that you don’t understand is like playing with fire. When you don’t understand the business model, you will not have a clear idea if the company is doing great or going down. One of the best ways to minimize or avoid this is by building a diversified portfolio. This way, you will make your risk losing money from not understandable investment much lower. You should be extra cautious and make sure that you understand each company thoroughly before investing in their stocks. (more…)

If you have just completed construction of your house, a home inspection can help you identify any defects before you move in. While in the old home inspections are done to identify the extent of wear and tear, newly constructed homes are inspected to ensure they have been built well. During an inspection, old homes are checked for roof conditions, mold, and termites. This is not the case for newly constructed homes. Ideally, new constructions should be defect-free because they have never been used before.

But this assumption is far from the truth. Newly constructed houses have defects too and inspecting them helps with the identification of errors that have occurred in the building process. Fixing these issues early is the key to preventing long-term problems. There are three phases of inspection that new constructions should undergo. These are:

1. Pre-dry wall inspections

This is the first phase of inspection. This inspection is done once foundation components have been installed in the house. These include the floor, wall and roof, as well as windows and exterior doors. Also, plumbing, electrical and rough-in components must be in place before the inspection. Ordinarily, the inspection takes 60-90 minutes to complete and prepare a report.

2. Final inspection

This is the second phase of inspection and it’s done after building the home is complete. It is the most important type of inspection.

3. One year warranty inspection

This inspection is done before the warrant expires. Most people who do this inspection are those who fail to inspect their homes before moving in. Once they begin experiencing many problems than they expected, they decide to conduct an inspection to find out what else they may have missed out. After the inspection, the construction firm fixes the issues. This inspection is most beneficial when it is done to find out the condition of the house after one year of living in it.

Usually, the purpose is to find out whether there are issues that may have arisen after the final inspection. A one-year warranty inspection is often conducted on the 11th month after one has moved into the new house. Doing it at the expense of the final inspection is costly and time- consuming.

So, Why Should you Inspect your Newly Constructed Building?

Inspection of a newly constructed is important because it enables you to get a YBI Sunshine Coast licensed home inspection early before you move into your new home. Here are more reasons why your new home needs inspection: (more…)
