Let’s face it. The economy is still struggling, and those of us with our heads above water are only taking minor breaks between bouts of treading water. We’ll be the first to admit that celebrating the milestones of life or thanking a company that’s performed some major hustle over the past few years isn’t something to toss aside. While some may be in a bad spot financially, that doesn’t mean we appreciate one another any less.

This year, be a part of the merriment by renting out your own personal home or vacation home to all those still feeling the joy! Why simply watch couples tie the knot on weTV or hear about lavish corporate parties with champagne towers when you can be a part of them? Here are five reasons renting your home with Estate Weddings and Events not only expands your wallet but your grin.

1.  Earn Extra Income

Whether you’re gainfully employed or run the house with all it’s bells and whistles, your house can become a very lucrative transaction or excess income. Renting your home for a week can definitely put some money in your pocket. Renting your home for one day often generates the same amount of income if not more. Why skip town for a full weekend when you can take the afternoon off, return home and sleep well knowing you were a big part of a fabulous evening!

2. Write off home improvements

We all have a laundry list of home improvements that we just can’t seem to squeeze into our schedules. Always wanted to replace that old tired tile work for brand new terracotta? Thinking the bathroom needs a pick me up? When renting out your home for a private event, these to-dos can get placed back at the top of your list! By improving your home for your business, you can count these expenses as a tax right off!

3. Tax Free income?

Want to rent out your personal home without spending too long away? Legally, if you rent out your full-time residence for less than 15 days in one year, this generated revenue is not considered a business and is 100% tax free! I know, one of the few times hearing a lot about figures and numbers is a good thing!

4. Hassle Free 

Already thought about renting but confused by all the legal jargon? No problem, If you qualify for an exclusive listing not only do we know all of the zoning laws backwards and forwards but we handle all of the necessary paperwork. Heck, after some specifications by you, the homeowner, when you begin working with us, the rest is entirely smooth sailing. We know what you want, what you don’t want and exactly what you’d like out of the event so leave all of the negotiations, the contracts, the staff, and of course, the clean-up to us. Grab a glass of wine, watch those old episodes of Law and Order SVU you’ve been meaning to catch up on and have that much more money in your bank account simply for relaxing.

5.  Advertise your Home

Planning on selling your home in the near future? We know it may be a while, so allow us to make your home the next big topic of conversation. Ever wonder how they make those extravagant and hyper-realistic sets of Hollywood blockbusters? We’ve worked with a variety of studios and film productions to bring their projects to life. Trust us, it feels pretty awesome seeing your backyard on screen as the deluxe hotel relaxation station. Who wouldn’t want to seriously consider living in a home like that fresh on the market?

6.  Give Back

Whether yours concerns animals, children, health or more, we all have a charity that strikes a special chord in our heart. For some, this may involve donating time, funds or an afternoon to assist in hands on work toward this unbelievable cause. For home owners who list their homes as the ideal event space, this may also include helping out a non-profit in a BIG way. While plenty of these companies may have the notoriety of for-profit businesses, it doesn’t mean their budgets share any of the same DNA. Donate your estate or provide further cost incentive for these altruistic celebrations and be a part of something tremendous. It’s more than opening your heart, it’s opening your home.

If you are an estate or venue manager looking to generate more business for your estate venue sign up for basic and premium listings and receive qualified leads directly to your mailbox.

Think this is something you’d like to learn more about? We’d love to hear from you! Shoot us an email over to info@estateeventgroup.com  and we’ll gladly give you further information. Event aficionados by nature, we also dabble in landscape and architecture appreciation. Give us a call, we’d love to hear more about your wonderful home!

In this digital age, we are constantly connected to our iPhones, Blackberries, and any other device that allows us to stay connected to our digital world.  Although events are a time to experience something new and unique, we say, if you can’t overcome the connection to technology for a few hours, then embrace it.

We’ve compiled a list of ways to creatively incorporate an iPad into your next event. Read on to see how technology can actually enhance (not distract) from your next estate event (or any event, for that matter).

Use an iPad as “digital decor”

At a corporate event in May, we were blown away when we heard that our client was going to place three iPads on each table in order to share a slideshow of awards and accolades.  Although not all clients will have the budget to provide 30 iPads for a single event, using an iPad on a check-in table is a great way to showcase a wedding couple’s engagement photos or a corporation’s noteworthy milestones.

Create a pop-up photo booth

With free new apps like PopBooth, you can add a photo booth to your event without the high cost of bringing in a heavy, space consuming photo booth. With the ability to pass the iPad around to your guests and have them share their photos directly via Facebook or email in “Party Mode,” your next conference, social event, or wedding can be transformed into an interactive experience. Your guests can also order prints directly from the iPad which still allows your guests to get a traditional printed photo strip (that they wont leave behind on their table after a few drinks). We think that PopBooth is the perfect solution for casual events at unique locations such as the beach or park.

Live stream your event for those who can’t attend

When the story of a bridesmaid attending a wedding via iPad made national news, it was inevitable that the trend of virtual event attendance would catch on. Aside from usingFaceTime to be able to interact with other guests (as did the bridesmaid), you can now easily stream your wedding for multiple guests to experience your event in real time. UStream is a live video broadcast platform that allows you to broadcast your own station with an internet connection. With the ability to password protect the stream, anyone from your company’s employee that is away on business, your relative that is stationed over-seas, or your ill grandmother in Idaho can keep from missing out on your amazing event.

Have your guests “sign” a digital video guest book

As a more personable (and memorable) touch to your next event, have your guests leave a video message, rather than simply signing their name on the mat of a photo or on a dotted line. The Thrilled For You app (for the iPad, iPhone, or Mac desktop) allows your guests to leave an unlimited number of video messages which can be customized to suit your event theme.

Set up a Social Media Lounge

Social media and networking is a never-ending task for companies (and indivuals) these days, so why not have your guests join in on the project. Set up an inviting Social Media Lounge where your guests can Tweet, Facebook, and blog about your event from their perspective. Set up a Facebook page for your wedding and have your guests post their favorite wedding memory on the wall or have you guests Tweet with a unique ‘hash tag’ so that you can see what all your guests are saying about the event. Integrating social media into your event is perfect for your tech savvy guests, allowing them to share your event with their own social media network.

Our esteemed estate, the Bali Gardens, is an exquisite property located in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Bali Gardens has everything you would want to hold your memorable corporate event or retreat and guests, for the first time, will now have access to the interior of the property, including the impressive estate, guest house, and pool house.

Sitting on top of one of the highest points in San Diego, the panoramic view is nothing less than spectacular. This resort style single story expansive home was designed by the late Edward “Ted” Grenzbach, who has been featured over 50 times in Architectural Digest. This 9 bedroom/14 bathroom estate sits on over 9 acres of land. Imported French limestone covers thousands of square feet of interior and exterior spaces of the home. The elegant guest house has a master suite with guest bedrooms as well as three baths, family room, full kitchen, and private gated entry. The pool house is home to a sports bar with full kitchen, family room, 3 bathrooms, and additional guest suite.   Take advantage of the endless possibilities to entertain your clients or get away for the week in your own private resort.

Hold a wine tasting and chocolate pairing in the wine cellar and tasting room, or have a cooking class in the commercial sized kitchen or at the outside BBQ entertaining area. Learn how to mix classic cocktails at the oversized bar. Breathe in the fresh air at sunrise or sunset during your meditation retreat, and practice yoga in the Balinese and Mediterranean influenced gardens. Get in shape at your own private gym and loosen up your sore muscles with a dip in the black bottom pool and spa. Dine your corporate VIPs in the formal dining room, or network in one of the many family rooms. Practice your forehands and backhands at the tennis court or bond with your co-workers with at the pool house and sports bar. Spend the day sitting out on one of the several covered verandas for your corporate meeting instead of stuck inside a stuffy windowless meeting room. Show off your latest film or video presentation in the executive office. Take a stroll through the private orchard featuring dozens of different types of fruit and nut trees.

Bali Gardens is available for social events, corporate events, retreats, meetings, filming, and any event you can dream of. Overnight accommodations are also available.

The Fourth of July is just one month away. It is a day of celebration for Americans and a great excuse to get together with family and friends and wear your red, white and blue, and indulge in some classic American barbeque.   After all, thanks to this day in 1776, you have the rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!”  If you are looking for the perfect venue for your Independence Day celebration, complete with the best possible view of fireworks in San Diego, consider three of our stunning properties.

The Helix 360 is perched high on the northern slope of Mt. Helix and rotates through 360 degrees displaying panoramic views from the Coronado Bridge, downtown San Diego, the ocean north to La Jolla, Mission Trails Park and the Laguna Mountains. The second rotating floor also has 1,200 square feet of fixed deck all with stunning views, perfect for viewing many different fireworks across San Diego County.

The Marina 5 luxury penthouse is located in downtown San Diego with gorgeous views of the San Diego skyline. This modern and sophisticated venue would be perfect for a refined spin on the traditional American Fourth of July Barbeque.  Enjoy the several different firework displays in the downtown area including the Annual Big Bay Boom July 4 Fireworks Show in which the fireworks are discharged from Shelter Island, Harbor Island, the Embarcadero area, Seaport Village, and at the Imperial Beach Pier.

If you are looking for an estate that can accommodate a large Independence Day Celebration, our Bali Gardens estate in Rancho Santa Fe sits on one of the highest points in San Diego and provides the most incredible sights of the surrounding San Diego area. Light sparklers on the lawn while you enjoy your outdoor picnic and watch the sky illuminate all around you.
