The L'Armitage House and Land Package - The Perfect Choice For Millennials

The L'Armitage House and Land Package
Millennials aren't buying homes in the same numbers as previous and older generations, but it's not because they don't want to. The vast majority of millennials does indeed aim to buy someday, or would even like to now if they could.

There are many practical reasons why millennials hold off on buying -  the main one being young adult employment has risen considerably. Our advice to those who can afford it: “You should definitely buy.”

“Buying a home is one of the smartest financial decisions you can make as early as your 20s," says an executive in our real estate department, who handles properties in Castries and by extension islandwide, "because it is inflation-protected and a physical asset that doesn't disappear like stocks can do."

Buying a L'Armitage Monchy Land and House Package is the right choice for millennials and it's easier than ever before. Simply, because huge down payments are not necessary. While lenders are looking more closely at borrowers today than in recent years, there are options for purchasing your first home without a 20 percent down payment. For example, the St Lucia Development Bank, a few Commercial Banks as well as the Credit Unions offer loans to first-time home buyers with down payments between 0% - 10% percent. However, these loans require mortgage insurance.

Walk the Walk, Right the Light!

Do you know the emergency situation you are most likely to encounter?

It’s a power outage.

While power outages are highly likely to occur, many people are left unprepared when they happen. In a blackout, most people find themselves rummaging through their junk drawer, hoping to find a flashlight and praying the batteries still have a charge.

Light plays an important role on our emotional well being.  When there is no light, our minds can get overly active, and in a crisis situation darkness can feed our fears.  Lights allow us to prepare meals, read, work, and feel safe when the sun goes down.

Whether a power outage in your home is caused by grid failure or severe weather, you can respond  with alternative light sources. Below are 6 emergency lights to consider when preparing for power outages.

Everyone has at least one flashlight somewhere, but is it in good condition? Batteries drain over time, so if the flashlight has sat for a year without being used, it might be time to check the batteries.
Even if the batteries are good, the flashlight might not be very bright or reliable if it’s really old. Make sure you have a good flashlight in every room. It’s no fun being in the middle of a power outage with flashlights that don’t work.

Solar Outdoor Lamps
Solar lights are ideal for emergency or power outage use.  Most solar lights will last from 6-8 hours on a single charge. Use the solar lights that you have in your yard or garden for light at night if you are without electricity after the storm or an outage. While solar lights are usually kept outdoors, you can bring them inside if you need extra light. In fact, some of you probably already have solar garden lights.

Battery Powered Lights   

Battery powered light is the safest form of emergency lighting. It’s reliable, can sit unused for a long time and battery powered lanterns are safely portable for kids to use without supervision. You can  get battery-powered lanterns, folding lights and even candles.
You’re going to use a lot of batteries if you go this route, so you might want to invest in some rechargeable batteries and a solar battery charger.

Candles are often among the first choices for emergency lighting. It’s a light source that has been around for thousands of years, candles are a lighting source that keeps things simple. They are easily attainable, have no expiration, and are easy to use.  If candles are part of your power outage preparations, make sure that for every type of candle you also have the proper non-flammable holder for it.

Kerosene/Oil lamps
Kerosene Lanterns and Oil Lanterns are a reliable source of efficient home lighting.
In a pinch, you can create your own oil lamp-ette with olive oil and a hairpin, or purchase a kerosene lamp in advance for lighting larger spaces. Kerosene lamps have been used in homes for centuries. They burn smoothly, with no smoke and have minimal scent while providing bright light.

And  here's the BONUS!!!

Cell Phones
Bam! Power outage. You’d be surprised how handy a cell phone can become. You will also realize how amazingly helpful that little thing is in providing just enough light in finding your way to fetch your emergency light sources in the darkness.  A cell phone makes a great emergency source of light.

Get Prepped for the New School Year.

School Supplies
As the summer season winds down, the start of a new school year is fast approaching. Every new school year presents new challenges and opportunities for kids. The new school year also presents a challenge for parents: how to pay for all the school supplies children need for the year without overspending.

The best strategy for back-to-school shopping is to start with a plan. Many schools provide a list of the supplies students will need during the school year, so make sure you have that list before you start shopping. Now that you know what supplies your kids will need, start looking for ways to save.
  • See what school supplies you already have 
Back-to-school supply lists usually don’t vary much from year-to-year. Check to see what your child brought home at the end of last year to see if there are any  salvage school supplies they can use this year.
  • Look for special promotions. 
Right before the school year begins, many stores offer back-to-school sales. Watch for special promotions such as those useful “two for one” deals.  
  • Take advantage of the government's book lease program
There is that program which government implements each year during the month of July - August where needy parents get assistance with books -- you really have to be a lucky one since the books get exhausted very early during this period. 
  • Shop your school supplies with RCIP Ltd
At RCIP Ltd, we stock a large inventory of school supplies at competitive prices. We have also bundled certain important supplies into convenient packages which your child will find very manageable.
RCIP Ltd is your one-stop-shop for school supplies where easy is everything.

  • Set a budget and stick to it
 With proper planning, you can prepare your children for another school year without breaking the bank.

A 2-Stroke or 4-Stroke Weedeater - Which One Should You Buy?

So you're in the market for a brushcutter but don't know whether to buy a  2-cycle or 4-cycle machine?

 Which is best for you, both 2 and 4 stroke engines provide their own advantages and disadvantages as a whole.  Choosing the best engine for your needs can save you money.

With the advent of newer brushcutters that include 4-cycle engines, we are often asked the question: 2 Cycle vs 4 Cycle Engines – Which is Better? The issue is whether these new 4-cycle OPE (Outdoor Power Equipment) tools are better than their 2-cycle counterparts (literally: “Which is better, 2-stroke or 4-stroke?”)

Take a good look at our infographics below.

So Which is Better?
At the end of the day the winner is probably going to be the one that has had more money and technology spent on it. You can’t go wrong with either brushcutters but what we recommend is some research to find out what is best suited for your requirements, why not start by visiting Rayneau Construction and Industrial Poducts Ltd for the  best advice.
