It’s October; a time of year that has a lot to recommend it. In many parts of the country, it’s the season when Mother Nature goes full throttle with the Technicolor. Sunsets can be outrageous. In some parts of the country, leaves can bid adieu with displays that put rainbows to shame. Fall weather turns the air a bit crisper. All in all, to a lot of folks, fall is the favorite time of the year.
Selling your Bethany Beachhouse in the autumn, on the other hand, can present some special challenges. Selling your house in the springtime, for instance, doesn’t include clearing the garden of the remnants of summer growth (that is, unless you let it go the previous year!). The plusses and minuses of selling your house after the peak spring-summer real estate rush is over can be debated at length. What isn’t debatable is that to take full advantage of selling your house this time of year, you should be aware of a few specifics:
… leaf fall for yards with deciduous plants can require almost daily attention during some periods. You’re the best judge of when the debris crosses the line from pleasantly natural into downright unsightly—but in any case, it’s a good idea to make a quick inspection part of your daily routine.
… leaf fall is one thing, but windy fall storms can turn a well-kept garden inside-out in a few hours. After a storm passes, be prepared to hose off the traces of muddy puddles and do some organized sweeping. It can make a big difference when you approach a house with a clear walkway (vs. one that looks like a typhoon just passed!).
…they can be more difficult to manage in autumn and winter when Mother Nature can keep them indoors for longer periods or make their favorite hangouts less accessible. Being more flexible and attentive to their needs than in summertime is often necessary.
…if sudden chills descend, knowing that your heating setup is ready to go into action assures a welcoming environment for prospective buyers. If it hasn’t been in use since last spring, a system may produce some unpleasant side effects the first time it’s fired up. If yours one that needs a yearly checkup by the utility company, better not wait!
Selling your Bethany Beachhome in fall and winter may take a little extra vigilance when the weather acts up, but buyers at this time of year can be more eager to close on their new home. Be organized for success, which can mean everything from having a year’s worth of utility bills ready to show, to scoping out where you’re headed next.

It seems as if inflation is starting a slow creep back into Bethany Beach, DE supermarkets and gas stations—something that hasn’t happened for quite a while. For families on a tight budget, it’s hard not to notice—especially when it comes to trying to put something extra aside as a long-term investment.
By way of partially alleviating that concern, it’s worthwhile reviving some elevating insights from past eras. They stem from a chorus of exceptionally qualified voices when it comes to sophistication in investing: namely, economists, millionaires, and billionaires.
These elevating insights can be heartening whenever Bethany Beach, DE householders write a monthly mortgage check that pays down the principal. That only seems like a monthly expense—and hard-earned dollars out the door. In reality, those dollars are on their way to a happier place: the long-term investment column. And there’s been major agreement among history’s titans of finance that it’s a pretty smart destination, too! Here are a few of the many encouraging dictums that appear through the ages:
“The major fortunes in America have been made in land.”
That’s investment advice that doesn’t beat around the bush. It’s all the more convincing when you consider its source: the first great American oil baron—John D. Rockefeller.
“Land…is by far the greatest of monopolies…and it is the mother of all other forms of monopoly.” –Winston Churchill, statesman.
“Landlords grow rich in their sleep without working, risking, or economizing.”—John Stuart Mill, political economist.
“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate.”—Andrew Carnegie, industrialist.
“The best deal investment you can make is to buy a primary residence that you’re the owner-occupier of.”—John Paulson, billionaire hedge fund manager.
“Buy real estate when other people want to sell. Hold what you buy!”—John Jacob Astor, first American multi-millionaire.
