Shanty Creek – Northen Michigan Resort

Posted on

Four Season Place To Be

Finding a long lost treasure in your closetMemories flood your brain, relationships attached to the treasure warm your heart. Youd do anything to recapture that time and place.

Thats how you want to feel about each and every one of your vacations, winter or spring breaks with your family and friends.

Fortunately that lost treasure has been dusting itself offBellaire, Michigans Shanty Creek Resorts. As a vision in the 1960s of founder Roy Deskin, the property became a world-class customer service resort peaking in the 1980sBut then quietly falling into the forgotten friend category as several different owners failed to recapture the glory.

Northern Michigan Paradise

I don’t want a fast car
Don’t need a four lane highway
There’s not another place I’d rather be
Cuz out here in the country
Bluebirds sing for nothing
And the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah the shade comes free with a tree

The tree came with a mountain
Right beside the river where the ground makes one heck of a scene

Shade-Joe Nichols Country Artist

Deskin never met Nichols but his popular song could have been spun in this Northern Michigan paradise. When Deskin thought about the high, tree-green hills and curving valleys surrounding Bellaire in Michigan’s Antrim County, he envisioned a challenging ski and golf resort, satisfying for everyone. He labored toward that dream, overcoming a typical run of obstacles, from the early 1960’s until his death in 1969. His estate then ran the resort until 1977 and in 1978 the Hilton Chain bought Shanty, consisting of the main lodge, golf pro shop, four chalets, and more than 480 acres comprising the Shanty Creek golf course and ski area.

One Mountain Over

Already dreaming about his mountain, Chicago stockbroker Daniel Iannotti’s envisioned a ski and golf resort patterned after those in Coloradoone that closely resembled a friendly European hamlet. In December 1968, his village, “Schuss Mountain, became a reality. Golf was added in 1972 with a nine hole followed by nine more holes in 1977. An eatery, Ivanhoff Restaurant (now called Ivans) was added and in 1982 the famed SchussyCats began their annual summer run, staging song and dance shows.

Club Resorts Inc. purchased Shanty Creek in 1984 and Schuss Mountain in 1985. In 1986, they merged the two resorts, in essence doubling the recreational opportunities and amenities of both beautiful destination resorts. Two-thirds of the four season paradise was now complete.

Add Another MountainCedar River Village

In 1997, Shanty Creek broke its ties with Club Resorts Inc. and became a privately owned property with individual investors at the helm.

The ownership change allowed Shanty Creek to embark on the multi-million dollar Cedar River Village expansion project with more skiing, a fourth golf course and an 85-unit upscale suite hotel with surrounding condominiums. Even Golfing legend Tom Weiskopf designed an 18-hole golf course (opened in 1999), the Cedar River Golf Club.

But the cornerstone property, Shanty Creek, even with an infusion of building in the surrounding area had become a forgotten wonderland that many owners had tried to breathe new life into but didnt have the cash flow to fulfill the project. Then this past spring, Trinidad Resort & Club bought the resort and has started restoring it. Trinidad has a
wealth of experience in ski and golf resorts as well as real estate development. Their marketing and operational expertise developed the popular Copper Mountain Ski Resort in Colorado. Their desire is to bring Northern Michigan new ideas and programs and quality opportunities.

The restoration process and new ideas are a welcome relief to many long-time Shanty Creek employees. Golf Pro Roger Gieseck, who began as an apprentice at Shanty in 1984 says, Its nice to come to work and focus on my job of helping folks learn to play golf and improve their game. Not worrying about where I can find a broom to clean something up.

Refreshed and Improved

If you cant remember your last trip to Shanty Creek or if youve never had the pleasure, the resort and club is a great place to vacation or base your vacation out of as theres plenty to do in Northern Michigan.

Shanty Creek offers golf on several challenging levels with courses designed by Arnold Palmer, The Legend, Weiskopfs previously mentioned Cedar River Golf Club, The Summit Golf Club and Schuss Mountain Golf Club. Golf Magazine rated a Silver Medal Resort and the Best Family Golf Resort in the Midwest by readers of Great Lakes Golf Magazine.

We have four of the best golf courses, not only in the state, but across the country, Gieseck says.

After youve played these courses, many more are within driving range just down the hill as the Chief and Bellaire Golf Clubs offer plenty of challenge and fun. A little further toward Traverse City are more professionally designed courses as well as many more cities in Northern Michigan.

Shanty Creek offers lessons and hosts the Shanty Creek PGA Classic tournament each summer. Last years purse was $16,000.

Im Hungry

A new Executive Chef, Andrew Reh, has signed on to the Shanty staff. A Traverse City native, Reh has spent time in the Washington D.C. area working for the Ritz Carlton before working at the White House during the Clinton Administration for State Dinners and foreign diplomatic visits. With his Degree in Culinary Arts and wealth of experience, Reh came back to Michigan in 2004.

As he is just getting acclimated to the Resort and its menus, Reh does plan to put his stamp on the food offerings there.

I have a passion for food and Id like to bring a fusion of flavors to our menus, he says.

One of Rehs passions is ice carving and he has competed in many ice carving competitions state wide and nationally.

Id like to bring a competition here to the resort, he says. It draws a crowd rather quickly and is fun to watch and compete in.

With a stellar resume and experience at hand, Reh seemingly has the resorts menu in capable hands.

Work Off The Guilty Pleasures

Lets Get Wet!

An indoor poolan outdoor poola beach clubShanty Creek has plenty of ways to get you wetindoors and out.

On the lower level of the Summit Lodge the indoor pool with a maximum depth of five feet and a hot tub built in beside are a great place to hang out if theres inclement weather or you need to hide out from the sun burn youve accumulated. And for added benefit, use the house phone and order some poolside food and beverage service. Towels are provided and there are plenty of snack and beverage vending machines just outside of the pool. Oh, and bring plenty of quarters for the miniature arcade and be sure to loosen up the animals in the crane game for my next visit.

Just outside the Summit Lakeview Dining area is the outdoor pool. Once glance at this beauty and youll swear Esther Williams filmed a movie there. The 60s era beauty has plenty of deck for sun worshippers and plenty of water for everyone else. Be warned, the pool is solar heated and you are in Northern Michigan. But its never been too chilly to not get in on a sunny summer day. And again, take advantage of the poolside phone to order your favorite Lakeview snacks and drinks.

And if the lakeside is what you need, head down to the Shanty Creek Beach Club on Lake Bellaire. Plenty of sandy shore and a nice warm and extremely shallow lake provide a grand setting for swimming, relaxing or playing on the beach. There are picnic area and a snack area with restrooms available.

Baby Its Cold Outside

Schluender has worked all over the country as an outdoors guide from the West coast to the East coast and many spots in between. His enthusiasm for these sports and his dedication to creating the best atmosphere for resort guests should make Shanty Creek the place.

We want to partner with the best outfitters and not just charge our guests $35 bucks an hour and throw them in a kayak. We want to teach you how to kayak and then take you on a guided tour of the amazing chain of lakes.

Their growing list of sports also includes disc golf and they are pursing a relationship with the Professional Disc Golf Association

Nichols seems to sum up Shanty Creek Resorts and the founders original dream:

The mountain counts for something, the view is worth a fortune
And the shade comes free with a tree
I never had a dollar that could buy me what I’m feelin
But I’m feelin bout as good as I can be
I need to be reminded when I’m lookin for a bargain
Not to overlook what’s right in front of me

I’ll never make a killing tryin to make a living
But I make enough to raise a family
I bought a piece of heaven off county road 11
Where the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah where the shade comes free with a tree

I never had a dollar that could buy me what I’m feeling
And I’m feeling bout as good as I can be
I need to be reminded when I’m lookin for a bargain
Not to overlook what’s right in front of me

I don’t want a fast car
Don’t need a four lane highway
There’s not another place I’d rather be
Down county road 11
There’s this little piece of heaven
Where the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah, where the shade comes free with a tree

Yeah, the shade comes free with a tree.

Reversionary Property Investment

Posted on

When it comes to building a diversified property portfolio, many investors consider a reversionary property investment. Especially beneficial for the medium and long-term, a reversionary property is a good option as it offers a host of advantages. The fact that its unheard of for property prices to decline 50% below their current value makes investing in a reversionary property worth considering.

What is a reversionary property investment?

A reversionary property offers potentially high returns. Reversionary property investing refers to the process where an investor purchases the reversionary interest in another persons property, typically their home. This means they are purchasing the rights to own the property upon the death of the owner or when he vacates. In short, the property reverts to the buyer.

Types of reversionary properties

There are two types of reversionary properties: tenanted and untenanted. Tenanted is when the homeowner stays in the premises while untenanted is when the seller isnt residing in the house. In the second type, the buyer can choose to rent out the property.

How do you obtain a reversionary property?

In a reversionary property investment, you simply buy a residential property from a homeowner at a significantly discounted price usually around 50% of its value, depending on the sellers age and the propertys location and features. Payment can either be made through cash lump sum or in monthly instalments or a combination of both. When payment has been handed over, the homeowner continues to reside in the property as a rent-free tenant with full legal rights to stay in the house.

As long as he continues to stay in the house, he will be responsible for the general maintenance of the property, the utility bills, building insurance premiums and capital tax. Basically, reversion investments are a bet on the life expectancy of the homeowner. Meanwhile, the buyer of the property pays the monthly reversionary annuities until the death of the homeowner. When the homeowner dies or when he decides to leave, the propertys ownership reverts to the buyer.

Who benefits from a reversionary property investment?

Both the homeowner and the buyer benefit from a reversionary property. The homeowner-seller receives additional income in the form of a cash lump sum or monthly payments which could significantly supplement his pension. The setup will also provide him a lease that will endure until he passes away and he is freed from the responsibility of shelling out big payments such as land tax. In addition, he doesnt have to put up with the usual anxiety associated with selling his own property or moving out, allowing him a stable and secure state of mind.

For the buyer, the reversionary property presents an excellent opportunity for him to acquire a property at a huge discount. Most of these reversionary properties are apartments, studio flats, villas and commercial buildings situated in prime spots thus making them well-suited for buy to lets.

A reversionary property investment is certainly one of the least bothersome ways for any property investor to invest.

Popularity of Condominiums in the Philippine Market

Posted on

There are many popular types of residential Philippines properties available in the country today, and some of the most popular, according to many Filipinos and real estate experts in the country, are condominiums.

Condominiums are types of housing in which a resident owns a type of house or unit in a building, while other facilities found in the condominium, such as hallways, elevators, cooling systems, and other facilities are owned by all condominium owners.

Although condominiums were only recently introduced compared to other types of housing, such as townhouses and apartment buildings, it rapidly gained a lot of popularity in the market because of its benefits in which many Filipinos have considered modern in today’s modern trends and fast-paced lifestyles.

Popularity of Condominiums in the Market According to many Filipinos, the main reason why condominiums gained a lot of popularity in the Philippines is because of its location, which is normally found in business and commercial districts, which is unlike living in other types of housing, such as the typical house.

Accessibility Because of its accessibility to popular and key locations in the city, many of its residents have enjoyed the experience of living within walking distance or mass transit distance from their workplaces, which is unlike living in a typical house found in residential areas. And due to accessibility, condominium residents won’t have to go through all the hassles of rush hour.

Maintainability and Security Another major advantage of condominiums is its maintainability and its security. Other than the luxury of living within walking distance to popular locations, these types of residential Philippines properties are also known for its luxuries in terms of maintainability and security, which is rarely found in other types of housing in the Philippines.

All types of condominiums hire their own maintenance personnel who maintain all facilities found in the condominium, from its hallways, elevators, stairways, and parking lots, to its cooling systems and other popular facilities found in the compound.

As for its security, condominiums are known for their security personnel who assure the safety of all their residents, partly because most of its residents are of high stature such as wealthy families and company executives.

Family-Oriented Although condominiums in the city are not known to be suitable for a growing Filipino family, a number of new condominiums were also introduced which are mostly found in the outskirts or even in the provinces. These types of condominiums are known as condominium complexes.

The advantage of condominium complexes it its family-oriented environment including peaceful sceneries and wide open spaces, which is unlike the busy streets of business and commercial districts. However, other than its wide open spaces, condominium complexes are also known for its amenities.

Amenities Condominium complexes became a very popular and modern type of residential Philippines properties because of its collection of amenities such as swimming pools, gyms, recreational parks, playgrounds, or even a full-sized sports complex.

Kinds Of Money Lenders

Posted on

There are different types of money lenders and this article deals with the different types of money lenders present in the market scenario. Some of the different types of money lenders are

Mortgage bankers
Mortgage brokers
Wholesale Lenders
Portfolio lenders
Direct Lenders
Correspondents
Banks and Savings & Loans
Credit Union

Mortgage Bankers

A mortgage banker is a lender that can originate loans which they can sell to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, jumbo loan investors, and others. Thus a company who is capable of doing the above function is termed as a mortgage banker; however their size differs based on the different companies. Some mortgage bankers service the loans to the customers which they have originated while others do not. Most of the brokers have wholesale lending divisions. Some of the examples of mortgage bankers are Countrywide Home loans and Wells Fargo Mortgage. In this example one company is associated with a bank while the other is not. Many companies call themselves as mortgage bankers while some are really bankers but as far as the case of the others is considered it is mostly marketing.

Mortgage Brokers

Mortgage brokers are institutions who originate loans with the intention that they would give the amount to wholesale lending institutions. A broker has contacts or a set relationship with these wholesale lending institutions. Underwriting and the activity of funding takes place at the wholesale lender. They deal with the institutions that have wholesale loan department.

Wholesale Lenders

Many of the mortgage brokers and even the portfolio lenders act as wholesale lenders. They cater to the need of mortgage brokers for the origination of loan. There are some wholesale lenders that do not even possess their retail branches as they rely on mortgage brokers for the loans.

Portfolio lenders

An institution which lends own money and originates loans for itself is referred to as portfolio lender. Thus in this way they are lending their own portfolio of loans and they are not concerned about being able to sell them on the secondary market. Thus they need not abide by the rules of Fannie/Freddie guidelines and thus they can create their own rules for ascertaining the credit worthiness. Usually portfolio lenders are large banks. Only a particular part of their loan programs are portfolio products. Incase they are providing fixed rate of loans or government loans, and then they are definitely engaging in mortgage banking as well as portfolio lending.

Electrical Safety In the Workplace and Home

1.Always inspect item for current Test and Tag sticker before use..

2.Switch off at plug when not in service

There are many reasons to keep appliances and electronic devices disconnected when you’re not using them. First and major, it is a thing to do for the environment. Just think how outstanding it will feel as you’re unplugging your mobile phone charger that you’re doing something great for the society today! Think about if everyone in your city made the decision to do this one small thing how much energy we could save?

3.If appliance is not operating properly remove from service for repair or disposal

No appliance is designed to last a life-time. As much as we would like to have that, sorry but technological innovation can only go as far as what is possible. Technology can only assure you around 10 decades or so of the device support and unfortunately, your appliance will earlier or later give in to old age.

You need to be sensitive to the needs of your washer. It gives you outstanding support but you need to notice when it is already displaying symptoms of wear. Sometimes, these may call for repairs but sometimes, it may be informing you that it already needs to stop functioning. So changing the appliance might actually be better for you. All items repaired should be inspected tested and tagged by a competent person before return to service

4.Inspect for visible damage

One of the critical factors of maintaining the apparatus and checking for possible damage is to keep it new. You should perform a regular cleaning from dust, dust and dirt from the surface area of the items. If you allow your fridge’s racks and the internal to gather any type of waste the position which is impacted may become completely tarnished. Another example is if you let your washing machine to gather dust and waste this will certainly result in your clothes coming out of the washing machine looking not as clean as you expect them to be.

5.Never use leads or appliances that has any insulation tape visible Homes these days have a much higher insulation material R-value than older designs; the standard for your basement insulation material is R-32. Along with steam limitations this is a very essential part of your houses building package. Many houses have lots of insulation materials but it has been suffering from workmen installing products such as pot lights and never remedied. The un-suspecting house owner never understands this loss of heat. 6.Keep leads away from water and dust or shavings or grit. Always attempt to keep leads of the ground. Water is a great conductor. You can become electricity’s direction to the floor if you are in contact with ordinary water that hits power. Electricity would process through the typical water and throw you to the floor. This is why it’s so essential to keep all electric equipment away from water.

7.Never use any electrical equipment that appears damaged or not working properly The natural risk of electric shock is no longer a laughing matter, as it often results in serious injury and can even be critical. You should also check your appliance’s electric cable for damage. Any exposed cable, problems or reduces in the cable might create the device breakdown. If this is the case, do not use the cable. It is outstanding you contact a serviceman.

8.Never use leads that has damaged outside insulation ie the brown blue or green wires are exposed. An apparatus cable has both a conductor and an insulator. The conductor is within, allowing power from your wall outlet reach it. The insulator is on the outside, capturing the power within the cable and defending you from electric shock. It’s very essential to make sure that you use equipment and cables only the way they were designed to be used. That’s why producers provide instructions and manuals guides. Remember, the insulation surface area of the cable is what keeps the power stuck within. Without it, the power could ‘evade’ and process through you when you contact it. A live cable is basically a cable with power moving through it, but without the insulation surface area. Since a life cable is not secured, a contact with it would allow the power from the cable to successfully go through you.
9.Make sure all leads are placed so as not to trip people up or get caught up in cleaners .

10.Never store faulty repair, render unusable or discard

Never use an ageing or faulty electrical appliance, including an appliance with a frayed cord, cracked or broken plug, or any appliance that has given someone any kind of shock. Frayed or damaged cords should be replaced immediately or the appliance disposed of. Many old plugs do not have safety barriers between the connections – change them with modern plugs or dispose of the appliance.

Never use an aging or defective electric appliance, such as a device with a frazzled cable, damaged or damaged connection, or any equipment that has given someone any type of shock before. Faulty or damaged cables should be changed instantly or the equipment discarded. Many old plugs do not have protection limitations between the connections – change them with modern plugs or dispose of the appliance. 11.Store in a cool dry container away from moisture dust and grit.

There is no particular way to store kitchen appliances. Planning and storage space plan is determined by what type of cook you are, which appliance you use consistently and the size of your kitchen cabinet storage space. That mentioned, following these recommendations will make device storage space for any cook, in every kitchen position, a bit easier. We should not be afraid to store some of our most-often-used appliances in front and center of the counter top. Kitchen arrangement is all about making your cabinets, pantry, refrigerator and appliances functional. If you use an appliance daily, keep it where you use it, on the counter top. 12Portable Generators A portable generator is an engine that exhausts a dangerous gas called carbon monoxide or CO. It is odor free and without color, and you can be overcome if the generator is indoors. Be sure to position the generator outside where exhaustion will not be able to come in. Only operate a generator outside in a well-ventilated, dry area, away from fresh air intakes to the home. The generator should be secured from being exposed to rainfall and snow Never use a portable generator without a functioning Residual Current Device in the circuit Electrical Safety
