Posted by Emma McKenzie on Jan 3, 2017 11:42:18 AM

如果您的物業要維修,或者您正在考慮進行裝修以準備出售,那麼您應該首先考慮幾件事情。

雖然經由精心策劃,具有成本效益的裝修可以為房屋增值,但那總有花費過度的風險。這就是為什麼當您想賣物業時,需要考慮應不應該裝修,以及它吸引潛在買家的附加價值。

If your property needs repair or you’re considering a renovation to get it ready for sale, there are a few things you should consider first. Although well-planned, cost-effective renovations can add value to a home, there is always the risk of over-capitalizing.

Tips2.jpg Have a dedicated office space

Office-Home.jpgIt is very important to designate one room (or even a large closet) as your office. This space should have enough room for your desk and a cabinet, it should be quiet, comfortable, and if possible separate from the rest of the house. If you live in a small place try to dedicate a quiet area where you can have your desk. Whatever your office looks like, make sure the only thing that happens in that space is work.

♦ Treat your work day as a work day

The first few hours of the work day can have a significant effect on your level of productivity. This means getting up early, showered, and dressed like you’re going to the office. It doesn’t have to be a suit and tie or a pencil skirt – that’s one of the benefits of working from home, after all – but getting cleaned up and dressed makes it easier to stay “work-minded” all day.

Take Breaks

It helps you to be efficient and productive as well as keeping your day structure. A great Mac app called Breaktime can help you schedule your breaks.

Make your home office efficient but also pleasing

Tidy-Office.jpgYou’re going to spend a lot of time in your office, make it an enjoyable place to be. When it comes to paperwork, you want to keep your business and personal things separate. It is easy to keep your personal documents such as, birth certificates, mortgages records, bank statements, etc, in the same room as their business files. Be careful not to get the two mixed up or misplace client information. Maintain your desk free of clutter.

 Adopt a system you trust

It’s easy to get distracted at home. One way to help you understand your productivity level is to start tracking the time you spend at the task at hand. Create a work-sheet where you can enter the task, task description and time spent on that specific item. Creating a system will make your work-day more efficient and productive.
