3 Reasons Renting is Better than Buying

3 Reasons Renting is Better than Buying

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 08, 2018

Walden Pond Apartments, Lynchburg, VAThe housing crash permanently altered the perception of homeownership. Renting is now, if not vogue, a socially acceptable alternative to homeownership. And here are a few reasons why renting can be even better than owning a home.

Liquidity

First of all, renters have a greater liquidity than homeowners, a financial flexibility that cannot be understated in today’s economy. Homes are a highly illiquid form of investment, given that they cannot be sold quickly. That’s not to say buyers don’t exist, but they’re not necessarily easy to come by either. A house cannot be quickly converted into cash without the possibility of losing a large percentage of its value. Renters avoid this problem entirely.

And unlike homeowners, renters invest no equity in their property, so they’re able to put that money elsewhere. This is important to note because homes are not appreciating like they used to. Homes are not the safe bet that people have always relied on. If people are interested in seeing large investment returns, they’re better off putting their money elsewhere.

Flexibility

Renting also affords a mobility that homeownership cannot. Instead of being bogged down by the process of selling a home, renters can move as soon as the lease expires. Then they’re free to move wherever they like, trying out new neighborhoods or sticking around what they know. And they don’t have to rehab their unit prior to moving. They don’t have to engage in costly updates to make their unit more desirable. Escrow might as well be a word in a foreign language.

Additionally, renters don’t have to take the time to fix anything — that’s the landlord’s job. Instead of replacing a busted washer and dryer, many renters can just request a fix from the property manager. It’s incredibly easy, saving both time and money.

Lifestyle

Many rental properties offer numerous facilities and benefits that homes do not. Apartment communities offer amenities that cater to life’s essentials — and then some. Some of these amenities are in-unit, like upgraded kitchens, energy efficient appliances, smart control HVAC systems and designated storage spaces. Plus, there are community amenities that homeowners lack. These include gyms, swimming pool and internet cafe. Renters save an incredible sum by avoiding membership fees.

The data doesn’t lie: According to The State of the Nation’s Housing 2017, the number of renter households rose by 600,000 from 2015 to 2016, marking 12 consecutive years of growth. Conversely, during the same 12-year period, the national homeownership rate fell. And not only did this figure fall, it decreased every single year. The stigma behind renting has all but vanished, demonstrating clear advantages with which homeownership cannot compete.

How to Keep New Year's Resolutions

How to Keep New Year's Resolutions

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 02, 2018

Walden Pond Apartments, Lynchburg, VAWe want the residents in our apartments in Lynchburg, VA to "Make 2018 Your Year."

Anything from between 42% to 92% of New Year’s resolutions end in failure. That’s no big surprise: we already know that Americans give up on 80% of the turn-of-year vows they make by the second week of February — and just 8% of us achieve any of our pre-set goals at all.

Americans set high targets and the struggle is real. The most popular resolutions last year were to “get healthy,” “get organized,” “live life to the fullest,” “learn new hobbies,” “spend less/save more,” and “travel”.

There’s some evidence that aiming high makes it likelier you’ll achieve your targets, but you’ll need more than mere wishes. Without having a structured program to reach their desired outcomes, people will often fail. Many of us set goals that are either too lofty, or have no timetable to achievement. Here’s how to change that.

Understand why: Don’t just say you want to lose 30 pounds. All goals should come with a reason. “I need to lose 30 pounds this year because my doctor is telling me I’m going to be prediabetic and I don’t want to go on insulin, so I’m going to lose five pounds a month” is a much stronger incentive.

Make an action plan: Draw up your goals with realistic deadlines. Whether it’s saving more money or dropping some pounds, accept that your efforts may not unfold exactly as you predict, and have a way to counteract that. This could mean hanging up a picture of the dress you want to wear…or writing down the reason why and hanging it up in your bathroom or kitchen. Setting mini-goals also help make your larger objective more obtainable. Otherwise, falling off the bandwagon can negatively impact your self-esteem.

Enlist help: Accountability is important, so consider pairing up with a friend. You can also follow inspirational figures pursuing similar goals on social media, where seeing a motivational Instagram post from someone whom you admire every day could keep you going.

Establish a reward: If you’ve been diligent, occasionally indulge in a small treat to incentivize yourself to keep going. This could mean going to the movies or having an ice cream for dessert. Have the extra layer of reinforcing yourself with something like that. It can go a long way toward keeping the goal consistent.

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 18, 2017

Walden Pond Apartments, Lynchburg, VAMany of the residents in our apartments in Lynchburg, VA are studying for exams. College exams can be stressful and exhausting. Here are some study tips to help you be as successful as you can be in your studying.

Review all of you tests, quizzes and homework assignments from the entire semester.

Often, college final exams include the same questions from the tests and quizzes taken throughout the term. Therefore, it's important to review the questions and answers from all of your tests and quizzes.

Make Flash Cards

You're familiar with flashcards from elementary school. Flash cards are useful in college too. You can create them to study important terms and concepts, formulas, dates and quotes from reading assignments.

Join or Form a Study Group

Study groups can be great resource when studying for final exams. You and your group can help each other with difficult ideas or formulas. Your group can help you with concepts you have problems with and vice versa. You can also compare notes and help each other with answers from past quizzes and tests. This is a good place to review questions and material.

Explain what you Learned all Semester to Someone Who isn’t in Your Class

Friends can be helpful in preparing for exams. To review for an exam and check your understanding of the material, practice explaining the concepts to a friend or roommate. If you are able to explain a concept or formula to someone who does not know the material, chances are you understand the material and will be able to handle the information on an exam.

The Cost of Eating and Living in Off-Campus Apartments

The Cost of Eating and Living in Off-Campus Apartments

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Walden Pond Apartments, Lynchburg, VAOver the past decade, room-and-board costs at four-year public universities have gone up roughly 25% above inflation. The bottom line is that the cost of room and board at colleges have gone up far more than the costs of living in the private economy.

College Board data show that the average cost for room and board at a four-year public institution is $9,804. Average tuition is a bit lower at $9,139 (in state). Part of the reason why room-and-board charges are up is because electricity and water costs and employee salaries have gone up.

Universities also need money to make sure the buildings are in good shape, so students don't trip on broken stairwells or get stuck in elevators.

When you have a building that was built decades ago that is still an active residence hall, obviously that takes some money to keep it moving.

Many schools require that first-years live in a dorm to help build a sense of community and encourage them to do well academically.

Many students end up migrating off campus after their first or second year for a different pace and lifestyle. But the percentage of sophomores living on campus has gone down over the years.

That decline has something to do with the growing number of properties off campus that house students.

Off campus apartments in Lynchburg, VA entice students with apartment amenities and comforts of home.

Often apartment communities are less expensive or equal too the cost of dorms, but offer the benefit of a better lifestyle.

Happy Thanksgiving from Walden Pond Apartments

Happy Thanksgiving from Walden Pond Apartments

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 20, 2017

Walden Pond Apartments, Lynchburg, VAIt’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our residents, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our Day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!

Virginia Peanut Pie

Virginia Peanut Pie

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, November 16, 2017

This pie is inspired by the version served at the Virginia Diner, a landmark restaurant in Wakefield, Virginia, that's renowned for this dessert. If you are hosting Thanksgiving in your apartment in Lynchburg, VA or headed to a loved one's home, this is the perfect dessert.

Pie Crust:

2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
7 to 8 tablespoons ice water

DIRECTIONS

1. Pulse flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor until combined. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal with some pea-size pieces remaining. Drizzle 5 tablespoons water over mixture; pulse several times to combine. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse until mixture holds together when pinched.

2. For a 9-inch pie, shape dough into two disks and wrap each in plastic. For a slab pie, shape dough into a rectangle and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day, or freeze up to 3 months; thaw overnight in refrigerator before using.

Pie:

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 disk of the pie crust (above)
3 large eggs, room temperature
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
3/4 cup golden syrup, such as Lyle's
2 tablespoons apple-cider vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, plus more for serving (optional)
1 1/2 cups roasted unsalted Virginia peanuts
Vanilla ice cream, for serving

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to an 11-inch round. Transfer to a 9-inch pie dish; trim edges to a 1/2-inch overhang. Tuck overhang under and crimp edges with the tines of a fork; freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

2. Line crust with parchment and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake until bottom no longer looks wet, about 25 minutes. Carefully remove parchment and beans; continue baking until light golden, about 10 minutes more. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

3. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add butter, brown sugar, syrup, vinegar, flour, salt, vanilla, and cayenne; whisk until smooth. Coarsely chop 1 cup peanuts and stir into egg mixture, then pour into cooled crust. Scatter remaining 1/2 cup peanuts evenly over top.

4. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is puffed slightly and set, 40 to 50 minutes (if crust is browning too quickly, tent with foil). Let cool completely on wire rack. Slice and serve, with scoops of ice cream lightly sprinkled with cayenne.
