Spring is traditionally a time of transition and new beginnings. New shoots emerge from the ground, animals come out of hibernation, and people finally want to be outdoors again. It’s also a time for a fresh start. There’s a reason homeowners do spring cleaning. Throwing the windows open to let clean air inside, getting rid of winter clutter, and putting away heavy jackets brings a feeling of lightness that only spring can provide.

As the days get longer and brighter, use your extra time and energy to take on a few DIY design projects. Whether you do a small decoration project or revamp an entire room, it’s a great way to take your spring cleaning to the next level and make your home more inviting.

Many people dream of being able to invest in a rental property but feel that it is a difficult financial goal to achieve. If you are able to do it, you can increase your monthly income, have more to put away in your savings, grow your net worth, and—best of all—have somebody else paying off your mortgage. One way to make this dream come true, especially if you don’t have a lot of extra cash to invest, is to build a duplex.
