Real estate again considered the best investment per the people.
According to Gallup, Americans think real estate is the best long-term investment. Unfortunately, they're wrong.

Nice interactive chart on avg rents across all US counties.

You probably stand in front of your fridge every night, looking at your food, trying to decide what you want to make.

This will be interesting to watch unfold. NAR will certainly get involved in lobbying against. Zillow and Trulia probably won't want to swipe as cash flow generated by agent ads / sponsorships. Redfin would be in best position & already has audience and possible some of the current fsbo platforms.

My gut is it will be a simple offer / negotiation / transaction platform to try and remove agents & part of commissions with most functions supported by salaried by licensed agent as well as mortgage, title, escrow, closing attorneys. 

Biggest issue will be creating support mechanisms for the emotional aspect of real estate transactions. 

What do you think it will be? What will be the biggest obstacle to adoption?

More good news on the real estate front. Will be interesting if the trend holds and what the impact will be with Yellen & mortgage rates.

Another item I think may happen.

The influx of baby boomers whom may now start selling homes to downsize since there is percieved stability in the market.

This increase in  inventory may put downward pressure on some of the older established areas but this maybe offset by Gen X starting to inherit money & using that to buy up.

You thoughts?
Since 2006, the real estate market has either been severely depressed or white hot. In 2014, it looks to settle down.

Reading the original PageRank Paper is still an interesting read.

Incredible how a 15 year old item has had so much effect on the world. 

Now everyone is in search of the E vector of the equation.

Interesting list of top real estate sites for month of March. Pretty amazing that top real estate brands are not in the top sites. 

I think some other factors not mentioned for increase. 

- change in weather (pretty hard to be excited about looking at houses when it's -10) - Big social events, like Olympics & Super Bowl are behind us.

Will be interesting to see if increase in pending sales happens in the next few months.

It's crazy that the market leader only has 16% of the market. In other countries, that number would be a complete failure.

Jeffrey Dahmer's childhood home for sale.

"... as the childhood home of cannibal and murderer Jeffrey Dahmer. His first victim, Steven Hicks, was murdered at the home in June of 1978."

Interesting quote from owner...

"If you can get past that little problem, you'll have a wonderful place to live," said owner Chris Butler.
The house at 4480 West Bath Road is up for sale.

Having been to Puerto Madryn, Argentina to see tons of whales up close & personal… I'm glad this has finally happened. 
The International Court of Justice ruled Monday that Japan can no longer continue its annual whale hunt.
