When you need to save up for your dreams.
We all know how tough it can be to save up for a significant expense in the future. With prices rising every day, our expenditures are also following suit. So how can you possibly buy that dream car or the home you’ve always wanted? Let’s learn how!
Searching for the perfect property made easy.
Which cities have the best cost of living rates? Where are property prices rising, and where are they falling? How much down payment will you need to make on that house you badly want to own? Whatever you need, you can get those much-needed answers here.
From maintenance, first purchases to the latest technology.
There are so many new cars that come out every year. And so many stellar companies, too! Whether you’re looking for a family SUV or minivan that can fit all your little ones; or you want to impress with a cool new ride—know all about the latest tech and maintenance tips here.
When is the best time to buy a home?
Whenever you’ve saved enough for a down payment on the house; have found a good mortgage broker; and found the city you want to live in, of course! The market keeps fluctuating now and then, so it can feel like the right time might never come. My suggestion would be to start planning a few years in advance if you can, so that by the time you have enough saved up, you’re ready to start hunting for homes in whichever city you prefer. By this time, you would also have enough market knowledge and (hopefully) a trusted agent by your side who can guide you through it all. Get started today by reading some home buying tips here.
Should I really start saving up for retirement from my 20s?
Believe it or not, many people often spend their entire income in 2-3 weeks of having received it. While it’s true that daily expenses can take a toll on our money, it’s important to understand the power of saving up—the compounding effect, if you will. You can start out by saving a little (say $100 or less) a month, and then move up to bigger investments like an IRA. How much money to save also depends a lot on what you’re saving for. You can learn more through the blog posts!
How much of a car's repairs can I DIY?
The answer really depends on how much car knowledge you have. If it’s small fixes like tire changes or engine oil checks, the majority can be DIYed. If you’re more skilled, then you may even be able to do some major fixes on your own! However, to be on the safe side, especially for more serious problems, you should seek professional help from a trusted mechanic. Check out some of our automotive blog posts to learn some handy DIY tricks.
What's On Offer!
Who am I?
My name is Freddie Pascall, and I’m a mechanic and car enthusiast. I started off in this line of business about 15 years ago, and now I run a garage of my own. I’ve always loved exploring how cars are built and fixing them up; you also can’t beat some good modifications too.
Besides covering automotive care and considerations on this blog, I’m also going to be delving into real estate and money management where I can.
I know you’re thinking, “How come you’ll talk about real estate if you’re a mechanic?”
Well, as I’m getting a little bit older now, I’m wanting to do the sensible thing and start planning for my future. When I’ve retired, I want to be able to live comfortably. So, I decided to invest in properties and renovate them for selling and renting purposes.
