    Investor Explains How to Make Money Doing Real Estate Wholesaling

    Real estate investor Todd Baldwin made over $1.5 million in 2021 from various revenue streams. He recently got into wholesaling, which he says is one of the most efficient ways to make money. On his last deal, the seller wanted $800,000 for his home. Baldwin sold it for $900,000 and kept the difference. For Todd Baldwin, time is the most valuable asset. “I’m passionate about freedom with my time,” the 29-year-old Seattle-based investor told Insider. “And because we live in a market economy, and you need money to pretty much do everything, it makes sense to work for much larger sums of money for much smaller amounts of time.” That’s…

    How Interior Design Firm Taylor Yang Transformed a Vanilla Home in Tiburon, California

    When architect and interior design firm Taylor Yang signed on to re-imagine a five-bedroom home in Tiburon, California, the existing interiors were what they called “vanilla.” In other words, they were the perfect starting point for the designers to create a transformation.

But while your space might be overlooked by neighbouring walls, it can be a space where shady-loving plants thrive, and you can be creative with your choice of landscaping, furniture, and decorative touches when considering courtyard…
