SUCCESS ISN’T MONEY
A lot of people think success is money, and that is fine, but not me. There’s also a lot of rich people who are not successful. When someone asks me how I define success, I never say it’s how much is in your bank account.
To me, success is achieving goals.
Even if your goal is waking up at 5am tomorrow, and you do it. Well, guess what? That’s success. A successful person is someone who consistently and persistently achieves the goals they’ve set for themselves.
Think about how many people set New Year’s Resolution EVERY YEAR. How many people say they’re going to do something, and they don’t do it. How many people say they’re going to lose weight and they don’t. Quit that job they hate, and they never do.
Being “successful” is someone who can keep their own word. This doesn’t mean doing something for one day. It’s doing it over and over and over again — consistently and persistently.
Switching to artificial grass has been by far the best house project for me this year. While many may think that natural beats artificial, it comes down to a personal opinion. If you are a very meticulous person with the appearance of your home going green is the way to go! You will have the best looking lawn regardless of the season. When my neighbor noticed that my front yard was being ripped out he seemed shocked as it still had potential. When I told him what I was doing he didn't seem amused by the idea. That's until he saw it installed. I'm not sure what he was imagining but let me tell you this stuff look SOOOO REAL! When I met with FENIX they offered me 4-5 different types of turf that would fit my landscaping. I decided on the "longest hair" that looks most realistic with yellow roots at the bottom to really make people second guess if it's real or not. So far- it works every time!!! "The house with the perfect lawn" I'll take it.
I have already saved 30-40% on my water bill. This will add up to thousands over the years and eventually pay for itself. Artificial tuff is made to last 20+ years. No need to re-seed, fertilize, etc.
I shopped around for about two months before making this few thousands dollar purchase and found FENIX to be the most professional and have the best quality. Although they aren't local they service the entire Central Valley and will come give you a free quote in a timely manner. Installation took less than 6 hours.
P.S -Nobody lost their job with this switch. My landscaper will continue to service my yard for my plants + shrubs, just much less often and less work of course.
Thank you for reading.
I will work closely with a title company that will handle all of the paperwork and make sure that the seller is the rightful owner of the house you are buying and be mutual all parties involved in the transaction. The title company makes sure that the title to a piece of real estate is legitimate and then issues title insurance for that property. Title companies also maintain escrow accounts — these contain the funds needed to close on the home — to ensure that this money is used only for settlement and closing costs, and may conduct the formal closing on the home. At the closing, a settlement agent from the title company will bring all the necessary documentation, explain it to the parties, collect closing costs and distribute monies. Finally, the title company will ensure that the new titles, deeds and other documents are filed with the appropriate entities, record deeds and proceed to the most exciting step... KEYS!!
Typically, purchase offers are contingent on a home inspection of the property to check for signs of structural damage or things that may need fixing. I will help you arrange to have this inspection conducted within a few days of your offer being accepted by the seller. This contingency protects you by giving you a chance to renegotiate your offer or withdraw it without penalty if the inspection reveals significant material damage. Both you and the seller will receive a report on the home inspector’s findings. We will review it together and you can then decide if you want to ask the seller to fix anything on the property before closing the sale. Before the sale closes, you will have a walk-through of the house, which gives you the chance to confirm that any agreed-upon repairs have been made.
