Unique gift for the One Who Has Everything

A friend recently asked me what she should get her husband for the holidays.  The response was along the lines of giving him a new experience, something he has never done before.  This season, The Hotel Zamora (, a Mediterranean-inspired boutique hotel located across the street from one of the Gulf Coast's best beaches in St. Petersburg, Florida, might have the winning gift.  The holiday spirit is being brought to sunny St.Pete Beach with a Stocking Stuffer Picnic Basket for Two.  The basket includes stuffed challah lamb sandwiches made with roasted garlic leg of lamb, shaved rosemary, tzatziki, oven-dried tomatoes and mint pesto, with candy-cane peppermint cheesecake lollipops for dessert.  Pair the basket with a snugly blanket and one of our world-famous sunsets for the perfect romantic experience.  This will surely be a present one won't soon forget.

Make Wise Investment Property Choices

 Making the decision to invest in real estate is a decision that can have a major impact on your personal finances.  If the transaction is successful, you profit from the investment and over time can accumulate extra money.  Alternatively, unwise choices may lead to loss of money and debt. Hiring an experienced Real Estate Broker is an essential part of the purchasing process.  

While considering investment property, make certain to find a location that people will want to live in. You might consider buying a home that needs some help but is built in a desirable neighborhood. Make certain the home is worthwhile and is worthy of resale or rental, and hopefully will make you a nice profit. Location is important!

Often times families choose to invest in a property together.  Going this route involves complex legal documentation.  You will want to be certain to have official agreements laid out in case there is ever a desire to sell in the future.  These can be complex and having a licensed professional available to assist is crucial.
