Thailand – March 12, 2016 – When people are not ready to buy their own homes, they rent. While home ownership is much preferred by a majority of people, there are benefits to renting. So if you are a renter who is still waiting for the right time to purchase a home for yourself, you should be comforted by the fact that while you are waiting, you’d get to enjoy these lovely benefits.
- The benefits on amenities would surely have to depend on the rental property. If you are lucky, you’d get to rent on a property that offers an extensive list of amenities. If you are wondering why landlords would be so generous to give such amenities, it is because they want to entice potential tenants and retain them as much as possible. Amenities provided by landlords can provide social, business and even fitness opportunities.
- One of the best benefits of renting is that it isn’t difficult to move. The termination clause in leases would allow the tenants to end their lease early for a specific amount. The best thing about this is that when you are presented with career opportunities that would require you to move, you’d be able to do so much easier than when you own a house. Also, in the case that you are low on finances, renting also presents you with financial flexibilities. You can cut down on your costs and reduce monthly expenses without being burdened by mortgage. Also, the money you will use on down payments and ownership expenses can instead be used for investments like life insurance or retirement plans.
- Social and Community Opportunities. There are rental properties that provide social activity programs so that neighbors would grow closer to one another and develop friendships in order to foster a better sense of community.
- Low Maintenance. Consider this, when you are renting, you aren’t fully responsible to maintain your unit and the common areas. Maintenance is assumed by the landlord however, you can still do your part to help maintain the unit but in a less costly way.
If you are looking for a place to rent, there are many condos for rent in Hua Hin.

- Ask a trusted friend for referrals. If you know someone whose taste in beauty products are in line with yours, try asking them for referrals.

There is no doubt about the benefits that trees provide people with. Trees are critical for humanity’s survival and thus serve an important purpose in this world. However, even with all the benefits that trees can give, there are some certain situations wherein they pose a threat to a person’s safety. Older and larger trees are more likely to drop branches and who knows who these branches will fall into. There is also a high chance for older and larger trees to cause root conflicts on the sites that they inhabit. So while it is important to think about the benefits that trees give, you should also understand and accept the risks they pose during unfavorable situations.
Hazards could be caused by natural occurrences such as ice storms or strong winds. They can also be caused by manmade activities such as constructions that negatively affect the condition of the trees. So even if trees give benefits to people, they become liabilities as soon as they fall and cause harm and damage to people and properties.
One of the only few people who can truly help homeowners deal with the risks that come with trees are arborists and tree surgeons that provide tree services like felling, pruning, etc. An arborist would be able to help you effectively manage the trees on your property and would give you treatments that will help reduce the risks brought by trees.
Here are some ways you can avoid harm or damage after quick assessment from arborists.
- Remove the target. While you may not be able to move power lines or an entire house, it is possible for you to move smaller targets such as tables, chairs, cars, people and other possible targets from a falling tree or tree part.
- Prune the tree. Pruning is a great way of making sure that the tree is in top condition. When a tree is healthy and well maintained, the risks are greatly reduced.
- Cable or brace the tree. Providing support to weaker limbs can help strengthen them.
- Routine care. Older and mature trees would need to be provided constantly with water, nutrients and mulch to keep them healthy.
- Remove the tree. When the risk becomes too high there will be no choice but to remove it.
