One of my friends Sooraj OS had come to my home yesterday. He is now a medical rep. He used to work earlier as a back end administrator for a real estate website based in Guruvayoor. What he told me was amazing - he told me that people might register at websites which will take commissions for their sales but may not register in sites which are free. I think its true whether you want any type of properties whether its land or beach end houses to be sold or purchased, you won’t mind this. Now there are websites which deals locally for different places like best investment property at deanagency.com for North Carolina, kerala property or 99acres for us.

With more and more having access to the Internet and cheap yet powerful computers, and with increasing focus on having work and life balance, stay-at-home jobs and earning opportunities have become commonplace. Unfortunately, together with this trend, we can also see a proliferation of work-at-home scams. Here are some things to do or keep in mind so you don’t fall prey to these fraudsters.
First, you should research about the company making the offer and the offer itself. The Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission can be good resources to know if a particular organization or company is non-existent or has a history of complaints. Reading reviews can also help; however, you should treat them with healthy skepticism. If the reviews sound too good to be true, they probably are. A reliable company will be clear in its description of the work they want done. Beware of companies that won’t allow you to speak with an actual person and those whose owners or principals are not easily identifiable. If you are hired as a teleworkers, make sure that terms of your employment are made in writing and don’t forget to read, understand and note for small print before committing to anything.
You should avoid offers that promise high earnings for little work, eliminate your financial problems, or that will help you to get rich fast. In many cases, they are just blank promises. Even though steering clear of these offers would seem like common sense, many people are easily coaxed into trying them because the offers can be very tempting.
There are income generating opportunities that require you to shell out a few dollars to a hundred dollars for start-up kits and e-books. If payment is required, make sure that you can ask for a refund if you are not satisfied with the system. If they make no such assurances, try to look for other offers. Employment offers from reliable companies usually do not require such initial fees.
One example of a reputable stay-at-home venture is the Bring the Fresh system. Those who participate in this income-generating opportunity will need to make one-page websites. The system will teach you how to do this exactly. To succeed in this venture, you should be committed, realistic, and follow instructions. Although the Bring the Fresh System will require a one-time fee of $97 so you can access their training videos, you can always ask for a refund, no questions asked, if you are not completely thrilled about the opportunity.

Is there something called affordable life insurance? Yes and No. If you are trying to just get an insurance, it is affordable. If you are listening to an agent and investing too much money since the agent promised that the money will be doubled or tripled, then it becomes not so affordable. I had told this several times earlier - if you need to make money, then please don’t invest in life insurance - you better invest in some funds.

I withdrawed my ICICI Prudential Life Insurance a few days before - on April 2nd 2012. I had taken the policy on June 2008 and since I haven’t completed my four year term, there was also a 4% surrender charge. I needed the money so even if its a small loss, I don’t mind. But if you are going to take in some new insurance policy, please go through term life insurance rate of the policy to make sure that it suits you.
