Sport and recreation are key elements of a balanced and happy lifestyle. However, the lives of people in metropolitan cities are increasingly being characterized by a strenuous work culture, which combined with the rise of technology-driven electronic gadgets is becoming a barrier to healthy living. While most people want to relax and take care of their health after coming back from the office, they are either too tired or don’t have access to recreational places in their immediate vicinity.
Let us now look at some of the important sports and recreational amenities that should be a part of every housing society:
1. Swimming Pool
Swimming is a rigorous, full-body exercise that can greatly improve our fitness levels. It boosts the weight loss process, aids in muscle toning, improves lung capacity, and helps maintain heart health. After a long and tiring day at work, a pool session can provide a really rejuvenating experience. For this reason, modern residential societies designed by the best housing architects generally include a swimming pool.
2. Indoor Games
At times, people want to stay away from an intense physical workout and just relax. Indoor games such as snooker and billiards, carom boards, bowling, table tennis, indoor skating, etc. help people beat stress and feel refreshed. Moreover, most indoor sports can be played by people of all ages, so including them is beneficial for the health of all residents.
3. Health Clubs & Gymnasium
Nowadays, a gymnasium is a must-have amenity in every housing society. Working out helps us keep our blood pressure in control and get a perfectly toned body. Keeping this in mind, the top residential architects are building housing societies that include high-tech gyms with state-of-the-art equipment and the best trainers.
4. Outdoor Sports
Playing outdoor sports is the most preferred way of staying fit and healthy. Amenities for playing popular sports such as cricket, badminton, volleyball, can be incorporated in most modern housing societies. Besides, a segregated children’s playing area with slides and swings could also be included.
5. Multipurpose Hall
Activities like yoga, meditation, and aerobics, have gained immense popularity and are increasingly becoming a major part of the regular lives of people. In such a scenario, including a multipurpose hall that allows residents to practice these activities can help them relax and promote their well-being.
The top architects know the importance of sports and recreation in a person’s daily life. If you choose to stay in a housing society developed by the top residential architects, you can enjoy a healthier, cleaner, and a much more relaxing environment.
Admit it or not, finding clients on the vast real estate market is very challenging. It is challenged by the existence of big real estate firms which employ hundreds of experienced real estate agents on their teams. If you are a newbie, you could easily be swallowed by the efforts exerted by the established firms. But have you ever think that they also started out as rookies in the field? If you are in this situation, here are some tips to at least give you a leverage on finding the right clients for you.
Create your own circle of offline connections and influences. As much as the online world is essential to widen your connections, the offline connections and influences is equally essential. Start with your family and friends. Then add your past classmates even those from your elementary days whom you still remember. Your teachers can be great additions. Move on to those whom you are tapping services as professionals such as your doctors, dentists, hair stylists, pet groomers and fitness coaches. The parents of your children’s classmates and friends can also expand your offline connections. If you have business contacts, add them as well. Don’t forget your neighbors. They can be great sources of referrals.
Build a better online network of friends. Through social media, you, as a real estate agent is bestowed greater power to enhance online connections. Your network can be a greater web of interconnected persons starting with your family members down to their own friends, acquaintances, friend of friends, and so on. Before you notice it, your network has expanded to include professionals of diverse titles not only in your locality but also in adjacent towns and nearby cities. If you think they are not relevant, you may be wrong with the impression. Anyone in your online network of friends can always be a great source of referral even those who you seldom see to be adding activities in their social media accounts.
Send mailers, both online and offline. Now that you have established both your online and offline connections, it is time to introduce yourself as the rookie real estate agent. For offline mailers, be sure to have a formal tone. Give your full name, license number, the firm you are connected too, its address, and contact numbers of you and the firm. Inform them of the services you are offering.
For online mailers, the same can be followed. But since it is an electronic form, you may want to add some enhanced graphics and video.
Create your own website. For personal branding, having an own website is an essential. This is where you can provide listings, value added services, frequently asked questions, and even informational articles that can help spark the interest of your potential clients. Support it with a blog, and connect it with your social media accounts in different real estate online platforms.

Location the key factor to consider
If you’ve bought a property by a highway or another not-so-great location, you probably got it for a good price. If that location’s value doesn’t increase during the time you own it, you’ll probably have to sell it for a similarly good price, even if you’ve done a lot of work on it.
