Increase your property values by keeping your money in your community!

Looking for ways to increase your property values? Help improve your community!  A simple way to make your neighborhood and community the "place to be" is by supporting your local businesses!  Whether it's the corner dessert or pastry shop, coffee house, restaurant or dry cleaners, try to keep the dollars you spend every day on these necessities in your community!  Supporting these local businesses will show the strength of your neighborhood to others, which will bring in new small businesses to your doorsteps. Some of the most popular neighborhoods in South Florida, like Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Miami Beach and Brickell feature small businesses within walking distance from residential areas.  For those of us who just don't seem to have enough hours in the day, a walk to a nearby hot spot to grab dinner can be a social opportunity with neighbors and friends while helping make life easier!  Along with ease, it builds a fun and exciting place to live for you... and potential buyers!  So, the next time friends want to do dinner or you need to grab a quick bite to eat, look at what's closest to your home and give it a try! I personally love to grab weekend brunch down in Coconut Grove at fantastic spots like Lulu's, and keeping the money I spend close to home!

I agree, we need to support our local merchants. Today I walked past a new store, and silently wished them luck. I then turned around and went in a wished her luck in person. I then took her photo in front of her new store, and I plan to write a blog about it. Stay tuned.

This is a great sentiment. I prefer the ethnic places nearby since I'm played out on the Mexican and burger joints. But definitely, spending dollars local is a great way to buy a little insurance and I'm sure the vendors appreciate it too.
