Property Research
Apartments.com is a nice tool to research multifamily properties. It usually contains detailed information about the apartment community that sometimes cannot be found through list sources from the year built, amenities, reviews, rent amount and other nearby apartments for comparable.

Business Services
Upwork is great for finding part-time freelancers to run your business. They may be located in the United States or other countries. It’s neat to find potential employers for affordable prices in the United States but making great money in their country due to the exchange rate. It’s a win-win. It’s a great place to find virtual assistants for full or part-time work.

Fiverr is another online job board that connects freelancers with business owners. Their prices are pretty phenomenal as well. We have used their services for logos, website management, and more. There are even some services available for $5. Check it out!

Docusign has helped us save time by obtaining signatures more efficiently from the comfort of the home with electronic signatures. We have used Docusign with offers, business contracts, partner contracts and more.
